SERIES: Callahan Confidential #5 GENRE: Inspirational Romantic Suspense PUBLISHER: Love Inspired Suspense RELEASE DATE: May 1, 2018 PAGES: 224
When fire investigator Mitch Callahan is attacked at a crime scene, he’s shocked to uncover the body of a slain ex-girlfriend—and realize someone’s framing him for murder.
Widowed ER nurse Dana Petrie believes Mitch is innocent, and not just because he makes her feel alive again after tragedy marred her past.
But is she willing to risk everything only to love and lose again?
Laura Scott is honored to write for the Love Inspired Suspense line, where a reader can find a heartwarming journey of faith amid the thrilling danger. She lives with her husband of twenty-five years and has two children, a daughter and a son, who are both in college. She works as a critical-care nurse during the day at a large level-one trauma center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and spends her spare time writing romance.
This book is action packed with intense drama and edge of your seat action. Mitch is the kind of character that oozes with confidence as he investigates a crime scene that will have him scrambling for his life. The opening pages draw readers in with a tense scene as Mitch has been called back to a crime scene . I could smell the smoke as he walked in the building that once stood so proud and tall. Why would he need to have a meeting here late at night? Oh my was I shaking as Mitch is soon in danger and lands in the ER.
The author is right on target with intrigue and action that had me drawn to the story. I'm sure Mitch didn't expect to find himself face to face with the widow of one of his co workers. It must be hard for Mitch to see her standing there as he remembers his buddy Kent who he tried to save in a fire. I liked how the author allowed Dana to thank Mitch for trying to save her husband. How long has Mitch carried the guilt of that fateful night when all efforts to save Kent were not enough?
I thought hospitals were safe and quiet places to heal. I was very wrong as bursting into the room comes a flash of danger wielding a knife. Holy smokes batman. Mitch and Dana barely escape and this is where the real action picks up. Someone is definitely trying to kill Mitch and he better be on his toes or he will find himself breathing his last breath. I loved how the author brought Mitch and Dana together , even though at first Dana is not quite cooperative. I wouldn't want to be on the run with someone who has danger written all over them.
What did Mitch see in the warehouse earlier that has put him on a hit list? He smells setup and must prove his innocence before he is caught. As Mitch and Dana start to draw close to each other, more danger comes their way. I rooted for this couple throughout the story because their chemistry was hot and subtle. Sometimes I thought Dana wasn't sure if she could trust Mitch, but as bodies start piling up she has no choice.
I love reading books that grab my attention right away and this book not only did that, but kept my attention till the very end. The intense and dangerous story is filled with great characters that jump off the pages. It's a race to the finish as Mitch and Dana must prove Mitch's innocence and stay alive. I absolutely loved the ending and thought the author did a great job of keeping readers in suspense till the end.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The review is my own opinion.
