There is a lot going on in this fast moving read as secrets are revealed, and the past might be the key to the mysterious events dogging Harper's every move.
Harper Taylor is a marine biologist who grew up with a chip on her shoulder in the foster care system, she's always been adrift, without a family. Ridge is suspicious of Harper at first, wondering if she is taking advantage of his father, but as he sees the danger she is in, he reluctantly offers his help. As more and more pieces of the past come to light, the tension builds making for a impossible to put down read.
This is a entertaining read with one thing happening after another, great character development and growth, I really liked how Ridge is challenged by his blind spots, and also his strong faith. I liked how supportive Harper's friend was, and how she genuinely cared, as well as Harper's relationship with Annabelle, and how they work together to make sense of their past. This book kept me guessing, and on the edge of my seat wanting more. I liked how it was very intense yet wasn't as dark as some of her more recent books that I didn't enjoy as much, and it reminded me a little of one of my favorite series, Hope Harbor. Satisfying storytelling, highly recommend!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
