When a John Doe washes up on the shores of Calico Bay, no one knows who he is—including him. But one thing's instantly clear to deputy sheriff Audrey Martin: the man's marked for murder. And she's the only one who can protect him from the assassins who lurk at every turn. The arrival of a team of men claiming he's Canadian Border Services officer Nathanial Longhorn only further complicates the matter. As his memories slowly start drifting back, Nathanial's determined to work with Audrey to uncover who wants him dead and why. But he's tangled in something that threatens to submerge them both. And unless Audrey can help him figure out what, this Christmas might be their last.
My thoughts: IDENTITY UNKNOWN is one of the better romantic suspenses I've read recently. An unknown man washing up on shore, a female police officer desperate to protect him, and someone trying to kill him -- a twist on the tried and true woman on the run plot line, this read fresh. I enjoyed getting to know Audrey and John aka Nathanial and finding out what and who was behind the attempted killings. I thought I had it figured out once but at the last minute there was a twist, and well, I was wrong. Fans of romantic suspense will love IDENTITY UNKNOWN and want to read the others in this series even though they all stand alone. A great story.
