Present Danger, Rocky Mountain Courage #1

Book description:

Hidden crimes. Open threats. Long-buried secrets.

They'll be fighting for the truth--and their lives.

Former FBI Special Agent Jack Tanner is working as a detective in Montana when he comes across a body in the national forest during a search and rescue mission. He's committed to finding the killer, even if it means working alongside his old flame, US Forest Service Special Agent Terra Connors.

When Terra discovers that the murder victim had ties to a powerful and dangerous trafficker of archaeological artifacts, the investigation takes a deadly turn--one that hits too close to home. As Terra fears she lacks the courage to face what comes next, Jack is more determined than ever to protect her. But he's failed her before.

If he fails this time, it will cost them far more than just their hearts.

My review:

   I was excited that this author had a new book coming out, and devoured it as soon as it came in the mail. Her first series with Revell Publishing was just plain awesome, and if this first book is a good sign that this series will be also.

It is cool when an author brings characters from other books and series into another, and one of the main characters in this book was a minor character in the last book in the Uncommon Justice series....and a very likable character.

 There is non stop suspense in this book, and it was hard to put it down. I like it when I can figure out the who and sometimes the why, but Goddard kept the reader guessing on this one....and I like it when there are surprises too.....and there were a couple of surprises at the end of this book.

 The two main characters were very likable, and the romance angle was more realistic than most books in that they had had a dating relationship prior to this book.

 As is the case with her other books, this one left me wanting more, and I am already wanting to read book #2, which is due out in November of this year. 

  I highly recommend this book that is full of suspense, drama, and romance. 

I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions in this review are my own.
