I have read several of Terry Odell's books and this one is by far my favorite. The danger revolves around Elizabeth Parker and her son, Will, who have escaped an abusive relationship and are trying to establish new identities and new lives. That might have been easier had Elizabeth not taken something else when she ran from her home city to rural Colorado. Enter Mark Grinciewicz, Grinch to his friends and associates atBlackthorne, Incorporated. Grinch's ex-wife and her husband recently died, so he now has custody of his five-year-old son, Dylan. He has not seen the boy since he was a baby and is ill-equipped to be be a father, but he is determined to do what it takes to help his son adjust to a new life. When he gets a call from Blackthorne, requesting that he take a simple assignment--teach a woman how to fit into the community under her new identity--he reluctantly accepts the task. I enjoyed all the characters in this story, especially the two young boys and how they bonded. Grinch was one of the best romantic heroes, stumbling, far from perfect, yet charming and strong. It was a real pleasure to journey through the story with Elizabeth as she evolved from the scared, paranoid woman in the beginning, to the capable, self-assured and self-actualized woman at the end. She had to overcome a lot of distrust and fear in order to stand up to her husband and then make choices for the rest of her life. One of the nicest things about her transformation is that it came from her. She was not the victim, saved by the big strong hero. Kudos to the author for that.

I enjoy reading before going to sleep each night. One evening, I started reading Danger In Deer Ridge, but it was so late I had to stop and get some sleep. Little did I know that the book would bring on a nightmare about people chasing me. Yes, that's what happened, but the next day I had to read more! The predicament of Elizabeth and her son drew me in. I could feel her mistrust and fear over what to some people would seem like ordinary occurrences. When you're on the run from a cruel relationship and have to be careful about every person you meet and everything you do, even the most common activities or words from people you meet can take on sinister overtones. The author did a good job of making me care for Elizabeth and her son. Being human and not perfect, she made some mistakes in judgment, which made her situation all the more precarious, yet at heart she was a good person with the best interests of her son at heart. I enjoyed the reverse Cinderella aspect, in which she went to great measures to downplay her looks so her identity would not be discovered. Of course, I, as the reader, knew she really looked terrific! Also, I very much liked Grinch, who did a good job of balancing his life as a father with his duties as protector for Elizabeth. The fact that she mistrusted him made his job that much more difficult. I highly recommend this book. Very likable characters, and enough suspense to keep you guessing, or, as in my case, to give you a nightmare. Morgan Mandel

When I read my first Odell book, I quickly started scanning BN for others! This one I read in one day! Loved it! She has a unique writing style that has all the elements I love - action, intrigue, romance, good characters and great dialogue. You gotta read it!

Terry O'Dell does it again with another of the Blackthorne Series. Like all his books, they are well written and keeps you moving right along with the story. No dull moments. Romance is light and mystery wants you to keep reading. Am waiting to see what he comes up next.

Nice mystery, just don't care for the romance, or the way the main female character is portrayed, some of the character's behavior seemed too contradictory to me.

This is a great book full of suspense, danger, and romance. The secret agency is at work and Odell does a great job of writing a story about uncover agents, the chances they take, and how loved one get caught in the middle. Another great Odell adventure.
