NO SAFE PLACE

Someone wants accountant Rebecca Linn—the granddaughter of a federal judge—dead, and it’s Deputy US Marshal Kurt Brock’s duty to figure out why and protect her. But her powerful family insists Kurt keep his relationship with Rebecca strictly professional…no matter how much he’s drawn to the feisty, fast-thinking beauty. Rebecca is sure the suspicious evidence she uncovered in her latest auditing case has put a target on her back. But staying ahead of those out to silence her is bringing her dangerously close to Kurt—and putting both their careers on the line. With the attacker closing in, can Rebecca and Kurt survive long enough to reveal the would-be killer’s secrets?

 

The stakes are high and danger is closing in! I was drawn in from the first couple of pages to this story and stayed glued to it throughout, The plot is intriguing, and the characters are really easy to fall for. There could have been slightly more depth put into the ending, but overall, a very solid read!

Rebecca Linn happens to be in Ohio on business, so she’s taking the opportunity to have a visit with her grandfather, a federal court judge. When danger comes knocking, at first it’s assumed it has something to do with one of her grandfather’s cases … but will the investigation prove to be more personal and aimed directly at her?

Deputy US Marshal Kurt Brock is diligent at his job and plans to keep everyone safe and get to the bottom of this mystery quickly, but roadblocks keep popping up in front of him as threat after threat comes at them. Who is after Rebecca … and why? Even though her grandfather has given him strict orders to stay neutral, Kurt can’t help getting closer to Rebecca as they share close quarters and experience such danger together. When all is said and done, can there be a future for them?

  1. Great review!
    I’m curious to know how big role does religion play in the book/what’s the religious part of these books? 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by Liina! The religious undertone of these books are generally fairly mild. An occasional mention of their faith or a silent thank you to God for seeing them through a particularly dangerous situation, etc. The main concentration is the intrigue. I’m not a hugely religious person myself (although I was brought up in a fairly devout family), and I can pick one up and read it without feeling like I’m being preached to. Occasionally one will push it a little farther, but my experience with this particular line has been that it’s done in a fairly innocuous and pleasant way. You won’t find much in the way of cursing or sex in them either, but the romance is still there in the beginning stages. Hope that helps! Happy reading! 🙂

      • Thank you for the thorough answer! I am fairly new to Harlequin and was wondering about the Love Inspired Suspense, Love Inspired Historical and Love Inspired lines. I’m now gladly picking up something from Love Inspired Suspense line and try the other two lines as well. It did help. Thank you once again 🙂
