Failsafe by Traci Hunter Abramson

In the wide-open landscape of Pennsylvania, Charlotte Martin and her father live a peaceful life on their farm. . . or so it seems. In truth, the rural locale provides the perfect front for the father-daughter NSA operatives as they expertly carry out their mission: using a high-tech computer system, they protect a team of undercover agents. Some would kill to have access to this system, and it makes Charlotte and her father prime targets. It was only a matter of time before this nightmare unexpectedly crashed down on them, and only Charlotte escaped with her life. Before Dwight Martin died, though, he initiated the failsafe lockdown, and now Charlotte's the only one who can access the system.

Writer Jake Bradford left the serene Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia for the hustle and bustle New York to pursue his dreams and never looked back. Until now. Entrusted with his ailing grandmother's care, Jake knows he needs help and he can't believe his luck when a lovely young woman providentially appears on his doorstep. Charlotte creates a new persona for herself and quickly develops a bond with Jake's grandmother. But it's the connection she feels with Jake that makes it almost too easy to lose sight of her reality: she is being hunted by men who will stop at nothing to access the intelligence she protects. With time running out, can the couple find a future together, or will Charlotte's secrets tear them apart?

This was a book I was so happy to get my hands on.  I love clean, romantic suspense books and Traci Abramson is one of my favorite authors in this category.

This book was so easy to get caught up in.  I was invested from the very beginning and did not want to put this book down.  I almost feel bad when I read through a book so fast.  What took an author countless hours of time to write, I polish off in a few.  I really hope they take that as a compliment though because it is.

I liked Charlotte and I liked Jake.  Separately and together.  What I liked most about Charlotte was that even though her world was falling apart, she still extended kindness and gentleness to others.  She wasn't lashing out to hurt others because she hurt.

The suspense was good- perfect for me because I'm somewhat of a chicken.  This suspense was engaging without scaring me silly.  :)  What a fun book, well written and engaging.  Oh, and clean!  Yay!

My thanks to Covenant for allowing me to read and review this title for them.
