to save her, she knows that Will is all that s standing between her and seeing Christmas morning REVIEW This is book 4 in Hope White s Echo Mountain series although it is the first of the series I have read I have read other Love Inspired books by Hope White and found this one not quite as strong The Love Inspired books are an enjoyable and quick read for when you need a break betweenin depth novels Although you know from the start who the bad guys are this plot had good development I thought Sara was a little obsessed over this case and could understand why she had conflicts with her FBI boss Will was definitely a white knight both loyal, compassionate, and kind hearted I would have liked to see a bitintrigue but overall this was a good read FAVORITE QUOTES For the first time in her life, Sara felt a connection to God as she helped Will avoid the pitfalls of fear and focus on the guiding light of hope Reviewed by JenBook provided by BookTribI tend to be a bit of a snob when it comes to reading inspirational romance I want that touch of faith, but I don t want it to be overwhelming or preachy I d never read Hope White before, so I wasn t sure on what end of the scale she was going to land In the end, there was that right amount of faith for my tastes.I also can be a little picky when it comes to romantic suspense Finding that right balance between the suspense and romance is hard All Reviewed by JenBook provided by BookTribI tend to be a bit of a snob when it comes to reading inspirational romance I want that touch of faith, but I don t want it to be overwhelming or

when it comes to romantic suspense Finding that right balance between the suspense and romance is hard All too often one or the other tends to overpower the other leaving me feeling like I missed out on something Again, Ms White seemed to find the right balance The suspense part kept me interested and wondering what s going to happen next and the romance was developed enough I hate nothingthan an I love you coming up and questioning where that came from.Will was a little too good to be true A man of faith, a great father, and just seemed to be overly optimistic And then there was Sara who was very work oriented, focused and running scared Will saves Sara s life and then they were almost inseparable I think this was where I got lost a little Sara, while she wasn t my favorite person, seemedreal to me but at the same time, I just wanted to give her a good shake And Will, as I said earlier, just seemed too good to be true I think he allowed an attraction to Sara put him in dangerous situations.This was a quick entertaining read The book was set during the Christmas season which added a nice little touch If you re looking for a sweet romance with a bite of suspense, try this one

carry a satellite phone as well as a cell, but maybe he d left it behind or there just wasn t coverage The nearby town is preparing for Christmas and we get family activities as a nice contrast This is a lively suspense story about determined people, including a tracking dog handler late in the story, and the romance could be read by young adults as well as adults Mixed feelings I enjoyed part of the story, but then at times the story seemed to not flow that well maybe it was just how I perceived it I liked the setting and kind of wish I had read the previous books first, because then I might have enjoyed the bookStill, all in all, I did like the story I received a complimentary eBook copy via NetGalley for my honest review. 3 STARSI liked it Lots of Action, danger, romance, darling little

vacation She wants to find proof that drug company LHP, Inc., which is owned by David Price, Victor LaRouche, and Ted Harrington, is trying to sell a sleep medication that is poisonous She has been ordered off the case by her boss Greg Bonner but she is determined to stop them She found out the men were going camping in the Cascade Mountains of Washington and managed to get herself a job as cook for the company that was taking them camping No one knew who she was When the men left camp one night, she followed them She was close enough to record their meeting and even closer to see them push David Price off the cliff In her haste to get away, she revealed herself and the men started to follow her She came to a dead end, a cliff Luckily she had her rope and tied it to a tree at the edge of the cliff and rolled over the cliff When the men came to this spot, they found her rope and started bringing it up Before it went very far, Sara took her chance and let go Will Rankin was a member of the Search and Rescue team out of Echo Mountain He was on a solo camping trip in the mountains to figure out his life He was a widower raising two young girls He was trying to come to grips with his wife s death and his current position While hiking he came across the Sara s body At first he feared she was dead but quickly found out she wasn t She came too and in her fear and anger, she hit him in the eye She was definitely hurt but wouldn t give into him She thought he was a plant to kill her He managed to get her to his cabin and tried to help her When a man came to the cabin and almost beat Will to death, Sara killed him Can Will protect her until she could she get on her feet Would Sara figure out what was going on and be congratulated by her boss or would she figure out what is going on Could Will keep her and his family alive This story was slower paced than most Love Inspired Suspense, which isn t a bad thing I liked that Sara and Will aren t running for their lives the whole time.There was also enough action so the reader doesn t forget that it is a suspense first and a romance second I liked how Will struggled to be a good father to his two daughters despite his

and not all of it is believable I liked the main characters, but found it hard to believe that someone like Sara could have become an FBI agent with her attitude towards authority I thought Will s
