Days away from testifying in a bank robbery and murder case, witness Kari Danville's safe house is breached, forcing her to run for her life. Scared, alone and pregnant, her only hope for survival rests in the protection of FBI agent Marc Callahan. With everyone in uniform a suspect, Marc goes rogue to keep her alive. Deep in hiding as the holidays approach, the vulnerable mother-to-be proves a dangerous distraction. But Marc can't lose another witness on his watch. As the Christmastime trial draws near, the killer stalks ever closer. And Marc must find a way to shield Kari—and her unborn baby—long enough for justice to be served.

A perfect mix of danger, action, suspense, romance, and struggles with faith and forgiveness in an exhilarating and inspiring tale that left me astound. The intense suspense and fierce action start with a high speed from the first page and it doesn't slow down for a minute. The puzzle they have to solve to stay alive is missing some of the key pieces, and to top it off, the good guys might not be such a good guys after all. Even though the number of suspects is limited, the main culprit takes their time to be revealed, and I am ready to admit I had no idea whom of them it could have been. I loved the tightness of the bond between the brothers. They dropped everything they had going on in their own lives and careers to support and protect one of their own. Kari and Marc have an undeniable connection. They are drawn to each other, and no matter how it might not be appropriate in their situation, or even safe, the feelings between them grow and it is nearly palpable how the root of their emotions to each other take the hold. And it was so heartening and adorable how they find comfort and safety in each other's arms. This story delivers on all fronts, the suspense is sharp and perilous with high tempo, the romance is delightful and charming, the struggles and growth they experience in their faith while running for their lives is real and encouraging, as it comes clear that to move on from the past hurt, there has to be forgiveness all around. The vicious and savage ending just highlights the edgy jitters of the tale, can't wait for more in this new series! ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Actually 4.5 stars. This is book one in the Callahan Confidential Series, what a great place to start. I was excited to learn this was a series because I fell in love with the Callahan family. This author does a great job at grabbing your attention and keeping it throughout the entire novel. Marc Callahan is a dedicated FBI agent. When he fears someone on his team is a mole he must take extreme measures to keep his star witness safe. Kari Danville is a talented artist with a great memory. When she is running for her life she must decide to trust Marc. Both Marc and Kari have a past they need to overcome to be able to move forward. This novel is full of Suspense, Drama, Mystery and Romance. It is a well written, stand alone book, even though it is part of a series. It will keep you guessing. I look forward to reading more from this author and this series.
