No Safe Harbor

Author: Elizabeth Ludwig
Publisher: Bethany House
October 2012
ISBN: 978-0764210396
Genre: Historical/romantic suspense

Cara Hamilton has gone to New York City to be with her brother, one she’d presumed dead, until she received a letter from him. Eoghan said he’d meet her there, but if he’s delayed to talk to no one, trust no one. Curious at the strange instructions, Cara keeps them in her mind, but when a business man befriends her on the voyage, then directs her to someplace to stay, and alone and scared, she’s met by Rourke Walsh, who escorts her to the boarding house, Cara wonders. Both men seem nice. And as long as she doesn’t mention her brother, then it’s okay to make friends. Right?

Rourke Walsh isn’t who he seems. His father was murdered by Eoghan Hamilton and he and his kin determine to avenge his death with Eoghan’s blood. They hope to track Eoghan down through his sister, Cara, and Rourke is assigned to trail her, just in case she is Eoghan’s sister.

Eoghan knows Cara is in town. He’s tracked her to the boarding house the day she arrived, but she was with Rourke—his enemy. In hiding, Eoghan is forced to bide his time. But with Cara in town, and the  enemy on his tail, is he safe? Is Cara safe? And can Eoghan save Cara from the truth about Rourke?

NO SAFE HARBOR is the newest romantic suspense from Ms. Ludwig. I enjoyed getting to know Cara, and Rourke, and even Eoghan. I wondered at what had happened to put Eoghan on the run, hiding, and why he worried about Cara’s friends, and I worried about Cara trusting so many so quickly when warned not to. Rourke is a dear, even though he was involved in scary business.

I thoroughly enjoyed NO SAFE HARBOR and couldn’t read it fast enough. I was intrigued by all the secrets and the characters and had to read to find out what happens. If you are looking for a great romantic suspense, then NO SAFE HARBOR is definitely a book to consider. Perfect gift for the suspense reader on your list—or for yourself. $14.99. 336 pages. 5 stars.
