Overview

They never should have met.
Dutiful citizen and school principal Kerrin Horton is serving four years as mayor of the small California desert town of Freedom. Professional thief Gary Sullivan is doing twenty-five years-to-life on a burglary charge in Chino State Prison. But when the FBI needs an expert in security systems to prevent a bombing in Freedom, they temporarily extract Gary from prison and set him undercover in Kerrin's threatened town.
As the only one to know Gary's true identity, Kerrin determines to keep her constituents safe from the black hearted criminal. Meanwhile Gary, intent only on earning his promised sentence reduction, tries to steer clear of Mayor Goody-Two-Shoes. But when Gary gets roped into teaching summer school to the town's troubled teens, Kerrin finds the felon acts more like a mother hen than a monster. Gary, once so tough, is dismayed by Kerrin's growing respect, and soon discovers there's more danger in one innocent woman than in all the prisons to which he's ever been sent.

    Great story!

    At first I thought that there was way too much backstory, and it seemed to start kind of slow. But, once I got further into the book all the backstory actually became very necessary. I really loved this story. I didn't want to put it down...it was so different that it really kept my attention. Once you get past the inital couple of chapters it becomes such a great story. All I have to say is, stick with it and read it to the end!

    enjoyable read

    Though a most unlikely plot (that's why it is called FICTION, it doesn't have to be true to life) is was enjoyable. The characters were fun and likeable. There were a couple of items that were never solved, at least as far as I am concerned, but that didn't really detract from the story.

    Another twisting plot! A good book!

    This author changes it up! Each of her books has the reader pulled into the story and keeps you reading to see where she will take you next! You will not be disappointed.
