Danny and Amy lived through a nightmare in finding each other. Now, they are happily married with two kids and lives they love sharing with their family. That happiness is threatened when Alex, the cause of their original strife and terror is paroled from prison. He says he’s a changed man, but Danny and Amy don’t believe it for a minute. As questions are asked, the threat from Alex increases until he starts assaulting Danny and Amy’s children, all with the goal of taking out the two people who’d put him behind bars in the first place.
When a story already has the love interests deeply in love, there is some serious work to be done to keep it romantic, but Ms. Royer-Derr did without a problem. Amy and Danny were warm and interesting. Alex was evil and sane enough to keep me flipping my epages, just waiting to see what he was going to do to the other characters that I already enjoyed very much and I wasn’t disappointed. There is one more story left in this quick trilogy and with the clues and points already set, I’m sure it’ll be another one to add to the to-read pile.
