FBI agent Sara Vaughn believes a group of pharmaceutical businessmen are engineering drugs with deadly results. Her boss won’t approve a sting operation, so she goes rogue—following the suspects on a hike in the Cascade Mountains to record evidence. But when Sara witnesses them murder one of their own, they target her. Saved by a handsome volunteer mountain rescue worker, Sara at first suspects Will Rankin is another bad guy hunting her. But when the widowed father of two risks everything to save her, she knows that Will is all that’s standing between her and seeing Christmas morning.
Echo Mountain: Saving lives and finding love in the mountains of Washington State
I love, love, love ‘Love Inspired Suspense.’ Sure, I haven’t read every one of them. However, the ones I have read are ‘keep you on the edge of your seat’ books. I try not to start a new one unless I have enough time to finish it. (otherwise it will be 3 am when I go to bed)
Christmas Undercover drew me in at page one and didn’t let go until it concluded. I quite enjoyed that our female lead was not a sniveling, helpless heroine. Nor was she a horror movie heroine (“Oh my, I think I shall go by myself, at night, into the woods where the guy with the chainsaw is.”) Sure, she had some hang-ups, but all and all wasn’t annoying.
Our hero was a good guy; gullible, but a good guy. He is likable and kind, patient, etc, etc. I liked him. I loved his relationship with the town. I loved his girls.
This is a standalone, but also book four in the Echo Mountain series by this author. There were a few things that as a reader I’m sure I would have enjoyed better having read the other books, but not to distraction.
