After being caught collecting evidence on her ex-boyfriend's criminal dealings, Tessa Jones has no choice but to go into hiding. She feels safe in her mountain refuge, right up until private investigator Trent McCabe comes knocking—and bullets start flying their way. Now for the second time, Tessa is on the run. And Trent's mission has shifted from tracking down a missing person to keeping the brave beauty alive. Trent once lost a woman in his care, and he won't make the same mistake again. But Tessa trusts no one—not even Trent. Out in the wilderness with danger closing in, Tessa must make a choice: rely on the handsome stranger…or take her chances with a killer.
My thoughts: MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY is a fast-paced romantic suspense. The heroine, Tessa, found evidence against her fiance, but she looses the evidence and without it, no one can find anything substantial against him. Trent is a PI hired by her parents to find her, but Tessa doesn't know if he's a good guy or a bad guy. Who does she trust? In this game of cat and mouse, friends are enemies and enemies are friends. I read this through in an evening. The story never slowed down. Tessa and Trent were kept running for their lives and fighting to stay alive in a blizzard and only a step away from being captured. If you are a fan of romantic suspense or of Christy Barritt, you'll want to read MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY. 5 stars.
