Morgan is a detective in the Arcadia Police Department. Her husband was murdered a little over a year ago by a serial killer who is now in a maximum security prison. She is intelligent, beautiful, and sometimes has a problem with authority. Her son is the light of her life.

Chase is the new Lieutenant in the Arcadia PD, newly transferred from Chicago. He thought he was moving to a quieter place.

Fourteen months ago, Kevin Reynolds was murdered in his bedroom leaving behind a wife and son. Gerald Tate was convicted of the murder. He has now escaped from prison and kidnapped Jared Reynolds. He wants Morgan Reynolds to clear his name of the murder of her husband. He says another cop killed Kevin. Morgan and her new boss, Chase, have to race against time to save Jared and catch not one but two killers.

Chase and Morgan are very likeable characters with great chemistry, and I really enjoyed reading about the development of their relationship. The suspenseful plot held my interest from the beginning until the end of the story. The author should probably do a little more research on the makeup of a small police department (a twenty-five member department with only four detectives would likely not have a vice squad or a narcotics squad) and police procedures, but the story is enjoyable and suspenseful with a few surprises for the reader. The heavy emphasis on Church and Christianity may appeal to Inspirational genre fans, but could turn others off to the story. It should probably also be listed as Inspirational as well as Romantic Suspense.
