When her fiancé’s dangerous secrets turn her work upside down, a beautiful doctor must choose between her own safety and the man she loves—and thought she knew.
Dr. Carrie Markham’s heart was broken by the death of her husband two years ago. Now, just as her medical practice is taking off, her fresh engagement to paralegal Adam Davidson seems almost too good to be true . . . until a drive-by shooting leaves Carrie on the floor of his car with glass falling around her.
When he confesses that Adam isn’t his real name and that he fled the witness protection program, Carrie is left with an impossible choice: should she abandon the fiancé she isn’t sure she really knows, or accept his claim of innocence and help him fight back against this faceless menace?
While Carrie struggles to decide whether to follow her heart or her head, the threats against them continue to escalate. Her life—as well as Adam’s—depends on making the right choice . . . and the clock is ticking.
To me this was not one of Mabry's best novels, it wasn't one of those that I couldn't wait to get back to but I do like to know how a story ends. I liked the plot and the twists but don't feel there was enough of a punch to it. I couldn't get to know the characters, they felt distant. It's not a bad story, there's enough drama to keep you reading but no thrill to it.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
