Isabelle Barrow's big break might end her life. When she attends a conference to present her research, she becomes a target. Matt McGuire, her high school crush, saves her. Their meeting brings back memories of their unhappy parting. Can he keep her safe so that they can get a second chance at love? I enjoyed this fast paced, suspenseful story. The characters are well-written and likeable. The dialogue is sweet with a touch humor. The action is non-stop and kept me on the edge of my seat. The twist at the end surprised me. I didn't see it coming. I enjoyed Texas Takedown. Heather Woodhaven has written an exciting and suspenseful story mixed with a sweet romance. I'm looking forward to her next release.
This is the first book by Ms Woodhaven that I read, and it won’t be the last. The author gives us a clean Christian romance filled with suspense, whodunit, bad guys galore, intrigue, and underlying romance while describing the beauty of San Antonio and the ins and out of hotel management. Matt and Isabelle are the main characters. They were best friends for years when they were in school and though they were attracted to each other then, they never revealed it. They meet again , when Isabelle, now a marine biologist, is in San Antonio to present an innovative product at a convention. By chance she meets again Matt, now an hotel operation manager, when he rescues her from men trying to harm her. And that’s when the plot thickens. Suffice is to say it was a rollercoaster ride , but one worth taking. You will not be bored and will be constantly wondering who are the bad guys. And let’s not forget the chemistry that never really burned out between Matt and Isabelle. So pick up the book, I promise you will enjoy it. I was gifted this copy.
