Overview

Kelli Carpenter has changed her identity, found a new career and thinks she's safe, but she still keeps plenty of distance between herself and everyone else. Someday, she fears, someone will connect her to Casey Wallace and a crime that would put her in prison for life.

When handsome stranger Blake Windsor shows up purporting to be a handyman at the wilderness job site where Kelli is working, her instincts tell her to send him away, but Blake has her boss's approval and without him, the project won't be completed on time.

Blake, a successful corporate executive, does his boss a favor and begrudgingly returns to the blue-collar construction lifestyle he vowed to leave behind. The woman he meets bears little resemblance to the woman he's supposed to find, but something about her mystifies him, and he's willing to continue his deception to learn more about her.

When someone comes after Kelli she runs - but she takes Blake with her. She is convinced Blake knows something that will link her to her violent past. Saving themselves turns into saving each other as they discover who is really after them and why.

Meet the Author

Terry Odell was born in Los Angeles, moved to Florida, and now makes her home in Colorado. An avid reader (her parents tell everyone they had to move from their first home because she finished the local library), she always wanted to "fix" stories so the characters did what she wanted. Once she began writing, she found this wasn't always possible, as evidenced when the mystery she intended to write rapidly became a romance. When she thought about it, she realized that her favorite mysteries were series where she could follow the developing relationships of the protagonist—to the point where she'd read the book twice; once for the relationship and again to follow the crime and its solution. So, she started reading romance, and found there was a genre that included mystery themes as well as a relationship.

Although her genre is labeled "romantic suspense", Terry prefers to think of her books as "Mysteries With Relationships." You can find more about her at her website,

I loved this page turner from Ms. Odell! No one is who you think they are and every character has a secret agenda. Hot love story and a cross country adventure kept me on the edge of my seat.
