Skye Fall (Pressley-Coombes #4) by Paige Edwards


Isla Montjoy has it all, a new career in nursing and a police officer boyfriend she adores―until she stumbles across proof of her boyfriend’s corruption. Determined to protect his secrets, he attacks her and leaves her for dead. But against all odds, she lives. On the run for two years, Isla’s life is far from assured as her would-be murderer doggedly tracks her across the UK, intent on silencing her forever.

On a climbing trip in the Scottish Highlands, Ben Pressley-Coombes encounters Isla, a beautiful woman who promptly pepper sprays him without warning or reason. After that rough start, Ben hopes never to lay eyes on her again―but fate has other ideas. Forced into an uneasy association that transforms into a deep-seated romance, the pair soon faces a deadly Isla’s relentless pursuer has discovered her hiding place. If she is to survive, she and Ben must outmaneuver the dirty cop and his treacherous plot to snare her.

Do you love romantic suspense books?  I sure do and this series is one of my favorites.  Throw in a marriage of convenience and forced proximity, and you have a winning combination.  This author really knows how to pack a punch with the suspense while building a romantic tension too.  From beginning to end this story was exciting and I had a hard time pulling myself away when life called.

Isla is so strong.  So courageous.  I don't think I could have survived the way she did.  I loved her caring and artistic side.  Isla also had fantastic instincts and such a drive to protect and care for not only herself but others around her.  The trauma and emotional battles she faced were immense and I was rooting for her safety, health and healing with my whole heart.

I loved traveling through countries and across continents.  I love the Pressley-Coombes family.  I loved that both Ben and Isla were dealing with a bit of mystery and it all ended to dramatically.  It was so good.  

This is the fourth book in this series.  I don't think you have to read them in order but I would recommend that you do.  It's just more fun that way.  

Content:  peril, violence.  Christian elements (talk of God, praying), kissing.
