For years, Troy has lived in the shadows as a Guardian. As part of this secret government taskforce, he has agreed to oversee the team’s base of operations on a remote private island in Maine, replacing fellow agent Ace and his wife, Kristi, for a year. When Troy steps in to hold down the fort, however, he does not anticipate company. So when Kristi’s sister, Jocelyn, appears on the island looking for a getaway, Troy is unnerved by her presence—hiding his top-secret work from the beautiful visitor is a recipe for disaster.
It’s been years since Jocelyn has been able to relax, and the family island is the clear antidote to the chaos of the business world. Expecting solitude, she is taken off guard by the presence of the handsome house sitter living in her sister’s home. Though she and Troy fall into an easy friendship, beneath his calm demeanor, he is an enigma. It’s clear the man who is quickly stealing her heart has a secret, but the truth is beyond Jocelyn’s widest imaginings: Troy is involved in stopping a political coup, and their relationship threatens to place Jocelyn squarely in the crosshairs of a deadly assassin.
All good things will be coming out of my mouth for this book. I really loved it but first can we talk about the cover? This publisher is so good at covers! Honestly, they have created some of my favorites and this book and series is an excellent example. This cover perfectly matches the content of the book and well, I just love it.
So now. The book.
I loved being back on the island off the coast of Maine, this time with Troy and Jocelyn. Everything in this book grew so well together. Friendship, plot, suspense. So many of the characters in this book are familiar to me from previous books in the series which gave it that feeling of community and family. It also means you really should read this series in order because you will love it so much more if you do.
The buildup in tension was great. I loved how my feelings grew as the story progressed. The ending was full on. I finished right before going to bed and I had a hard time turning my brain off. It just wanted to think about the book! I even woke up thinking about it. I love when that happens.
This author is so good at this genre! One of my favorites.
Content: peril, violence, kissing, some Christian elements (talk of God, praying)
