This is my first book by Elizabeth Goddard, and I loved it.
The romance in this story was tender, and the suspense was the right amount for me without getting over the top gruesome during the crimes committed. It kept me hooked as I tried to figure out who was the bad dude. Wonderful woven, I give a 5 star.
From the Back Cover
Justice lies just on the other side of fear
At the advice of her therapist, Harper Reynolds has traded her job as a crime scene photographer for a more peaceful life taking photographs of the natural world. But her hopes for a life surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors are dashed when she inadvertently captures a murder being committed. She flees the scene in fear–and loses the camera.
Former Green Beret Heath McKade, a reserve deputy in an understaffed county, has been called in to protect Harper, a childhood friend he is surprised to see back in the area. When Harper learns that the sheriff’s department can’t find any evidence of the murder she witnessed, she is determined to do what she can to see that justice is done. What neither Harper nor Heath could know is how many explosive secrets from the past will be exposed–or how deeply they will fall for each other.
