As the only person who can identify the most notorious hit man in the country, Kat Bridges is running for her life.
Murphy Dolan is in the Army Reserves, returning from his 2nd tour of duty, only to find a stranger hiding in his house. She's scared spitless. He's completely burned-out on violence. Neither of them has any trust left to give.
If the best of the FBI couldn't protect her from the country’s most notorious assassin, does a burned-out small town cop have a prayer?
Two broken warriors, learning to trust each to survive.
Both Murphy and Kate carry a lot of baggage from their past. The author does a great job giving an interesting, detailed account on their history. You truly see why and what brought the characters into the place they are in life today.
The suspense, fear, anxiety of the possible attack is constant. And while Murphy and Kate does their best to prepare for the onslaught, they learn to trust each other, and the attraction grows.
I loved the small town atmosphere, the daily happenings of the diner, police station, car repair shop, psychic postal worker, and how all the little things happening in town stems together to the story.
There was suspense, action and thrill in the story, and a friendly small town as the background for it. Murphy and Kate had chemistry between them, and were falling fast for each other. And while it is an interesting story with some heavy topics introduced, it still felt a bit light. But the ending was a bit of a disappointment and it felt rushed. It's not quite a cliffhanger, but happy-for-now with more to come later in the series promised after the 'the end'.
Regardless, the story hold my interest, and I'm pretty certain I will be reading future installments of the series, three spoons with a little teaspoon on the side for the correct measure for Deathwatch.
