Temporarily home to help at her family's vet clinic, Grace Porter has no intentions of staying--but someone's determined she won't live long enough to leave.

But can the single dad lawman uncover the truth about why a killer's out for vengeance before time runs out?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Trust proves to be a difficult commodity to trade for veterinarian Grace Porter in this thrilling story. Grace is on a Facetime call with her sister Choe when she stops to get gas. Chloe is now divorced and Grace is headed her way to help out at the family vet clinic. She also intends to offer Chloe any emotional support that she might need. The phone call ends rather abruptly with the screen going black, Grace hearing Chloe's screen, and a man wearing a ski mask suddenly filling the screen.
Imgaine Grace's terror for Chloe. Fortunately, Grace was almost at Chloe's house when her car ran out of gas, so she gets to the house rather quickly. What happens next is incredibly chilling. She comes face-to-face with Chloe's intruder. Before he flees, he delivers an ominous message to her. In rapid succession, Grace discovers Chloe is still alive, although injured. The police show up thanks to the quick 9-1-1 call Grace made, and the cop in charge is none other than her ex-boyfriend Police Chief Evan Bradshaw.
Grace's head is spinning. Who attacked Chloe? Why does it seem that Grace is also in danger? And will Grace be able to trust Evan to assist them and possibly play a role in keeping them safe? As he is a single father, Evan has a lot at stake if he involves himself in Grace and Chloe's plight. Drama, family, suspense and the possibility for a second chance each play a role in this quick read by Rhonda Starnes.
Many thanks to Love Inspired Suspense and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
I worked as a seventh and eight grade ELA teacher for twenty-three years, and I tried to instill in my students a love of reading and writing. Above all else, my goal was to help them realize their dreams.
I write inspirational romantic suspense with spunky heroines and strong heroes who love God and family and fight to overcome evil villains.
