The fire that killed his father
Also devastated her life.
Searching for anyone who might have information about the hospital fire that killed his father, special agent Liam Maverick asks nurse Peyton Weiss for help in his hunt for answers. But someone doesn’t want Peyton to share what she knows. As the threats against her escalate to attempted murder, Peyton realizes she has no choice but to work with Liam to catch the arsonist. With both of them risking everything for the truth, it becomes a daily struggle to stay alive—and to ignore the sparks flying between them that are hot enough to ignite.
This is the fourth book in the in the Badge of Honor series in the Harlequin Intrigue line by Rita Herron.
Liam Maverick is looking into a fire that caused the death of his father five years earlier. Peyton has been holding back information after being threatened by a powerful man in town. Things escalate when the powerful man believes Peyton is about to spill her secrets.
There was a lot of back and forth here. Not sure why more tests weren’t run on the deceased five years earlier. Seems like that info could have nipped all this trauma the characters experienced in the bud.
Even though Peyton quit her nursing job shortly after the fire that caused Liam’s father’s death, the threat still followed her there and brought torment to not only her but her friends and family.
This was definitely a nail-biter and I couldn’t figure out who the bad guy was. And I was floored when the culprit was uncovered.
If you like romantic suspense, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
