FBI agent Sara Vaughn believes a group of pharmaceutical businessmen are engineering drugs with deadly results. Her boss won't approve a sting operation, so she goes rogue—following the suspects on a hike in the Cascade Mountains to record evidence. But when Sara witnesses them murder one of their own, they target her. Saved by a handsome volunteer mountain rescue worker, Sara at first suspects Will Rankin is another bad guy hunting her. But when the widowed father of two risks everything to save her, she knows that Will is all that's standing between her and seeing Christmas morning.
Echo Mountain: Saving lives and finding love in the mountains of Washington State
My thoughts: This story was slower paced than most Love Inspired Suspense, which isn't a bad thing. I liked that Sara and Will aren't running for their lives the whole time.There was also enough action so the reader doesn't forget that it is a suspense first and a romance second. I liked how Will struggled to be a good father to his two daughters despite his mother-in-law's interference. I didn't get (at first) why Sara felt she couldn't tell anyone she was an FBI agent, though by the end it was clear why. There wasn't much of a faith message, it was about prayer which is important, but if one is not a Christian and not a praying person, imho there should've been more. But I also understand this brand doesn't want a strong salvation message. We knew who the villains were in this story all along, and why, which did serve to slow the story down some, but all in all it was a good story. Recommended for those who love romantic suspense.
