It's a typical day at Rachael Long's day-care center—until a masked gunman tries to abduct one of the children in her charge. First response commander Jake Marsh manages to defuse the situation before anyone is harmed…but not before Rachael unmasks the would-be kidnapper. Now Jake must lead a manhunt and protect Rachael from the criminal who's turned his focus on her. But the case is reawakening painful memories for Jake, and Rachael's treating emotional wounds of her own. And with danger mounting as Christmas nears, they must learn to let go of the past in order to outwit a killer…and find the peace that's always eluded them both.
My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free paperback copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, I really enjoyed reading CHRISTMAS CONSPIRACY and getting to know Rachael and Jake. Rachael is put at risk when someone tries to kidnap a baby, but when she unmasks the kidnapper she sees who it is so now he recognizes her and so she's in police protection.
Jake was a good detective and it was funny when the baby started crying and he didn't know what to do with it. He was really nice and a good protector. As per usual with this book, the heroine was kept on the run and the kidnapper really wanted to kill her so her life was in danger the whole time. I didn't figure out who the "bad guy" was before the end, and I didn't know why. Even though it is the final book in the First Responders Series, it easily stands alone. I am sad to see this series end. I've loved every book in this collection. Great book. 5 stars.
Brave men and women alert and ready for
danger and love.
