    This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. Kate was handed over to the Montgomerys, a wealthy Texas oil family, when she was only ten months old. She has no memory of her birth parents. Kate grew into an energetic young news reporter, one with the determination to confront even powerful men such as Senator Oberlin.
    Oberlin takes one look at Kate Montgomery and swears he’s looking at a ghost. There in front of him is a woman who is the spitting image of Lana Prescott, a minister’s wife with whom George Oberlin fancied himself to be in love. Twenty-three years before, George stole the church treasury to fund his beginning political campaign. Unfortunately, Pastor Prescott discovered the loss and his wife simply got in the way. Oberlin killed them both, then split up their children among every charitable organization he could think of. Now, little Caitlin Prescott, now known as Kate Montgomery, has come back to haunt him.
    However, Kate is not alone this time. At her side is Teague Ramos, a tough Hispanic from the wrong side of the tracks. Teague is good at keeping other people safe. His security company is top notch and when Kate suspects she’s being stalked, Teague decides to help her.
    Over the course of weeks, Teague and Kate grow closer, each breaking down the other’s barriers. What started out as just another assignment soon becomes something much more enduring. Nevertheless, can Teague set aside the demons of the past to embrace a future with Kate? George Oberlin covets Kate, as well, and if he cannot have her, he swears that no man will!
    Filled with intrigue, suspense and steamy romance, this novel holds your interest from beginning to end.

    Fantastic

    I saw this book in the supermarket and decided to buy it hoping that I would like it. I loved it. I have never read any of Ms. Dodd's books before this one so I missed the first two books (Hope and Pepper). I loved Teaque and Kate - they had great chemistry and they were so real. This is a must read.

    terrific romantic suspense

    Marilyn and Skeeter Montgomery are elated to adopt the ten month old Caitlin. However, both have doubts about the man handling the deal, Pastor Wright and his adoption agency. Still Marilyn calls her new daughter Kate so as not to confuse the toddler and she is nurtured in love. --- Twenty-three years later Kate Montgomery reports on the air from Galveston on a hurricane when Evelyn, wife of State Senator George Oberlin, recognizes her as Lana Prescott dead for over two decades. Not long afterward the TV reporter gets a job at KTTV in Austin where she meets George, who is very nice to her. When someone tries to run her off the road, her station hires Teague Ramos to keep her safe. As they become acquainted with each other, they fall in love even while her biological siblings, Hope (see JUST THE WAY YOU ARE), Pepper (see ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE), and Gabriel continue to search for baby Caitlin and also try to uncover the identity of the person who murdered their biological parents twenty-three years ago. --- Christina Dodd closes her delightful Prescott trilogy with a terrific romantic suspense that answers all the questions from the previous two tales. The story line is action-packed and fast-paced as the culprit will not allow Caitlin or her siblings to learn the truth. The reuniting of the Prescott brood adds a touch of sentimentality that is handled deftly and allows the novel to include a touch of a homecoming with the return of Hope, Pepper, and Zack. However, it is the two plus decade old murder mystery with an eerie chance of reoccurring that makes this a strong intrigue.--- Harriet Klausner Christina Dodd closes her delightful Prescott trilogy with a terrific romantic suspense that answers all the questions from the previous two tales.
