Reconsidering Her Options
Stalwart, honest, a stand-up guy – high praise, right? Wears his jeans just right, single, a catch – pretty much everyone in Hangman’s Loss, a quirky little town in the Eastern Sierras, adores the hell out of Police Chief Bradley Gallagher. Yet, new resident Emma Kincaid is determined to keep him at arm's length, and with good reason. But vandalism, arson, and a violent attack have her rethinking her stance. Has someone from her past caught up with her, or is the escalating threat coming from within her newfound community? Sparks fly as Brad races against time to keep her safe, and passions combust when they join forces to combat the danger.

I had never read any books by Ms. Benefiel, but as soon as I read the summary and sample of this book I knew that I had to read it. This is the type of story that keeps you turning the pages as well as moving you through every emotion possible. Emmaline Kincaid has inherited her grandfather’s cabins in the town of Hangman’s Loss in the Sierras. She was not able to be with him when he passed, but remembers the many summers she spent with him. As soon as she arrives, the police chief, Bradley Gallagher, arrives to check who is at the cabin. He is the type of police chief that every town would like to have, but Emma does not like police and makes sure that he knows it. There is an on and off-again tension and attraction between them as Bradley tries to get to know Emma and she tries to avoid him. After vandalism and other attempts to scare Emma and get her to sell her land and cabins for development occurs, Bradley is there to protect her. Emma questions if the attempts made towards her are only by those interested in her land, or is it something from her past. There is love, humor, family, mystery, and suspense – everything a great book should have. At the end of the book, a sequel is mentioned and I sure hope that is the case. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to give an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)
Flash Point really surprised me. It's not what I was expecting but I really enjoyed reading it. It's a fun easy read that captured me from the start. Emma Kincaid receives an inheritance from her grandfather that brings her to the small town of Hangman's Loss. There she finds mystery, drama, suspense, friends and romance. Brad Gallagher is the police chief of the small town and finds Emma interesting from their first meeting. The chemistry and romance between Emma and Brad developes slowly as things keep happening to bringing them together. There are interesting supporting characters and twist and turns that keep you turning pages. I hope to read more stories about the residents of this small town from this author.
