He lives by the law.
She’s running for her life.
After forensic accountant Beth Greenwood uncovers a money-laundering scheme tying her company to the organization that murdered her mentor, she knows she needs to go into hiding.
With ruthless killers in pursuit, she’s forced to rely on homeland security agent Corbin Ross’s protection—even as his investigation suggests Beth is complicit in embezzlement.
Can their uneasy alliance develop into something deeper—and keep them alive?
No Safe Place has a fantastic blend of clean romance and intense suspense, with the strong elements of mystery balancing the fragile feelings developing between forensic accountant Beth Greenwood and homeland security agent Corbin Ross.
I love the Love Inspired Historical romances Sherri Shackelford has written and got immensely excited when I saw that she has written romantic suspense as well. Her characters always have such depth, they are well developed, they are people you want to spend time with and cheer for.
Beth and Corbin both fit that description, as well - I simply adored them! I loved how smart they both were, their strong faith, raw honesty, and willingness to be vulnerable with each other. There were dote frailness and tenderness between them, and the relationship developing in between them because of the lines they could not cross due to Corbin's job and Beth's questionable actions in the beginning. But those feels were real, they were believable, and the ache they had for the chance to get to know each other just melted my heart. The way the story was built, it gave them a chance to get to know each other, to make the romance realistic, as well as time to make all those emotions take root.
The mysterious suspense and fierce action, the deadly attempts on their lives, kept the tale real, on the edge, and hopping. Nothing was obvious, each twist of the plot kept the guessing game strong, and the key answers to the mystery hidden until the heart-stopping crescendo.
If you love fervent, vehement suspense mixed into the clean romance stories between strong characters in well-plotted tales, No Safe Place is a must-read that I can easily recommend. Also, a perfect book to try Love Inspired line of books, if you haven't before.
