When Amber Kent’s old friend navy SEAL Rylan Anderson suddenly becomes the guardian of a baby, he turns to her for help. But then the baby’s nearly abducted in Amber’s care and it’s clear the situation is more complicated than it seems. Can they discover the truth behind the baby’s identity…before she’s gone for good?
This is the fifth book in the Rushing Creek Crime Spree series by Barb Han. In the Harlequin Books Intrigue line.
Basic premise: A baby is left on Rylan’s doorstep with the quick message that he was the kid’s father. He enlists his friend, Amber to help him which was good since he had no idea how to take care of a baby. Later after an investigation they realize this baby is wanted by some underhanded people and Rylan and Amber have to keep her safe before the bad guys take her and disappear.
I never quite understood how this lady who had Rylan’s baby ended up pregnant in the first place. Rylan didn’t remember the situation which meant he was probably drugged and based on his character I doubt he would have went willing into this situation.
Once you get into the story, it just flies by and before you realize, it is over. I totally loved the characters here and the Kent family is one that deserves to be dug into a bit more thoroughly.
The whodunit/what the heck is going on aspect of this is really intriguing and kept me interested all the way through. I am not normally the type of person who reads about babies in books but this one was worth the attention. Definitely an author to keep your eye on for future books!
If you love a good romantic suspense, definitely check this one out . You won’t be disappointed.
I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
