Series: Wings of Danger


Former parole officer Mick Hudson blames himself for the death of Keeley Stevens's sister. If he hadn't paroled a criminal, she might still be alive. When he hears that the suspected killer has been spotted in Keeley's hometown, he worries she might be the next victim.

Keeley doesn't want to take help from the man who could have prevented her sister's death, but she has more than herself to worry about. She'll do anything it takes to protect her family. And Mick will risk his life to make sure that the past does not repeat itself.

Wings of Danger: The path to love is treacherous

SECRET REFUGE is the second book in Ms. Mentink’s Wings of Danger series, but it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read the first book, Hazardous Homecoming, though.

SECRET REFUGE wasn’t as scary as some Love Inspired suspense I’ve read. It did take a while to get a handle characters. Mick blames himself for Keeley’s sister’s death, as he allowed for the parole of her murderer. Keeley seems to be living out her sister’s dream, photographing birds, sort of “dating” her sister’s ex-boyfriend, and raising her sister’s daughter. I wondered how these two very hurt individuals would get past all their issues to fall in love.

Mick wasn’t the typical “cop” hero. He is a retired parole officer. Used to dealing with criminals, but not the tough guy. Keeley on the other hand was very tough. One had to admire her bravo—even though she made some mistakes as a result.

I thought I had the suspense figured out—but then Ms. Mentink threw in a twist I never saw coming at all. Great read. Recommended.

4 stars. Available in ebook and paperback. 224 pages.
