Holly Cramer’s past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.
Though Holly’s stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily’s father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family—she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he’s a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.
Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller—the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he’s innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can’t trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.
Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.
My opinion: I am a huge fan of Ms. Blackstock's and I particularly love this series so I was utterly delighted to read the thrilling conclusion to the trilogy. I really liked the character of Holly, she was flawed and yet very likable. It was nice to see her grow up and become more responsible as she learns to care for her child. I also really liked how you finally got to see a satisfying conclusion to the whole mess with Leonard Miller. The mystery was interesting. the characters enjoyable and the romance was just the right amount. I highly recommend this book and the series in general. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
