Nola Landry barely survives a flood in her small Louisiana town by clinging to a tree on higher ground. While hidden in its branches, she witnesses the brutal killing of three neighbors who are shot by a man in uniform in a boat. After being rescued, and losing her home, she is rescued by three FBI agents who have come to town to track a serial killer nicknamed the Stormchaser. One of these agents is a former boyfriend, Tate Benton who left several years before without warning, breaking Nola’s heart. The flames between the two are rekindled but Nola’s life is in jeopardy and the agents, including Tate, must try to protect her once word gets out that there is a witness to the three killings.
There’s romance and suspense and some good subplots and, because it’s Harlequin, sex before marriage. Also, some language (the F word). None of it is to the point of being trashy, but because I don’t care for books that include these factors (I find it totally unnecessary) it gets a lower ranking. I’ll give it four out of five stars.
