The last thing Krista Curry expected to find in a soccer stadium was a time bomb. When she alerts explosives expert Cash Dixon, she becomes a local hero. But the attention could expose her real name—and the infamous past she fought to escape. Cash promises Krista protection from the bomber’s retaliation. Yet she hesitates to trust him as she sees his suspicion about her grow with every question she dodges. She can’t expect Cash to continue to safeguard her unless she tells him the truth. Now Cash must decide if she’s an innocent woman or guilty accomplice. But the clock is ticking down—and the real bomber is still on the loose…
First Responders: Brave men and women alert and ready for danger and love.
This is my introduction novel to the author Susan Sleeman. I don’t know how her earlier books were, but this was a 5 Star book.
First, it’s a Harlequin Love Inspired Suspense which means it’s a clean read.
Second, the weaving of romance, suspense, a bit of mystery and a few surprises is done well.
Third, it didn’t have a weeping heroine or an alpha male hero – thank you.
Fourth, it’s enjoyable, intelligent and I didn’t feel like my IQ was lower after reading it. (And let’s face it, I need all the IQ I can keep)
I liked the characters and their nicely knit relationships. This book belongs in a series, yet I had no problems reading it as a stand-alone. There were quite a few characters in the book and none seemed frivolous. My favorite was the main character’s grandfather. Yay for a new author to read.
