In a Killer's Sights by Sandra Robbins


When Gwen Harwell witnesses someone dumping a body into a Tennessee river, she knows she's the killer's new target. Far from home on a work assignment, she isn't sure where to turn—especially when her ex-husband appears. Five years ago, Dean Harwell's burdens from his police work tore their marriage apart. But now he says he's changed. He's working as a rancher; he's put his problems behind him. And he's committed to keeping her safe until the killer is caught. With their troubled past, trusting him with her life is hard enough. Can she trust him with the truth about the child he doesn't know they have?

In the killer’s sites by Sandra Robbins is part of the Smokey Mountain Secrets series. Each book can be read alone. I typically hate a book where the woman has held the secret that she had a baby from the father. I felt this was one of the best thought out stories for that scenario.... The author did a great job of creating scenarios where both characters actions seemed realistic. I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

This is the first book in the Smoky Mountain Secrets series, what a great place to start. This book is full of forgiveness, love, secrets, mystery and romance. Gwen stumbles upon a scene she was never supposed to see. When she begins running for her life she never expected to find help in her ex husband. Will she be able to keep her secret and trust Dean again? Can he really be a changed man? Dean can't believe how God has answered his prayers, he can only pray God will show Gwen how much he is a changed man. Will he be able to keep her safe or is he destined to watch her walk away again. I was given a copy of this book from net galley for my honest opinion.

Love, forgiveness, faith, senseless murder, acts of violence, and the scenic Smoky Mountains as the backdrop for the tale, that was no short of action and suspense, yet had a well-built romance story, and a beautiful narrative of the healing powers of faith in God. I believe this is a series I want to follow. The small town characters won my heart with their charm, kindness, and goodness in the face of crises and mayhem. The story has lots of action. The moments of danger, filled with fear, threat, and menace, seem so senseless when no one has an idea of the motives or identity of the culprit. The scenes of the fast action took my breath away, the trouble caused was imaginative and unique, the author's voice fresh and figurative. The romance had an intriguing base, the life Gwen and Dean previously had, the problems and mistrust based on those times and events, added to the stress and misery of current instability, and the secrets Gwen was holding on. I admired the spirit of forgiveness they both had, so willing to leave the drama and troubles behind, and focus on the positive aspects of life. The recovery from alcoholism was described in a realistic manner, yet with dignity and respect of the tragedy that not only brought it on but what followed from it. Faith in God, His guidance, mercy, protection, and love towards us, and the characters in the story was disclosed in ab spirited way. I loved what a center stage their faith had in their lives, how they lean on the faith and God in every moment and area of their lives, giving strong witness to the Lord. Yes, there's a lot been able to fit into the book, the story has an impact, makes a stand, and yet at the same time manages to entertain on both romance and suspense. A well-crafted tale, indeed. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side.

Good suspense! Lots of drama, romance and action. Clean read. I was able to figure out who the guilty person early and his motive for it. Gwen Harwell is out taking pictures when she catches a guy throwing a body into a river. She runs away but gets shot. She has built a good life after she left her husband. She is keeping big secret from him. Dean Harwell is giving a trail ride when he sees a masked man chase and shoot a woman in parking lot. He is surprised when it turns out to be his ex-wife. Dean wants another chance with her. He has changed from the bad habits he used to have. There are lots of twists, as they try to figure out who is after Gwen and why. Deals with forgiveness and how drinking can destroy a person. I would read another book in the Smoky Mountain secrets series. Did not want to put book down till I finished it. Easy fast entertaining read. I was given a free copy of In a Killer's sight to read by NetGalley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give a honest review of It.
