Reeling from a negotiation gone wrong, FBI Special Agent April Ramos is caught off guard when a frazzled young woman shoves a crying baby into her arms, then disappears. Worry for the child's safety quickly turns to fear when a man claiming to be the girl's father abducts them at gunpoint. April puts her hostage negotiation skills to use to learn more about who she's dealing with: Jason Snyder, a fugitive accused of murder. As Jason spins a tall tale about being framed for the killing of his business partner, April must sort through his claims to find the truth. A truth that becomes all the more evident after April overhears a conversation between Jason and the local sheriff and realizes something more sinister may be happening in their small town of Sweet Briar, Texas. But aligning herself with a known fugitive to uncover the burden of proof could cost April her job . . . or worse, her life and the lives of other innocent people.

This author has pretty much become my go-to for romantic suspense. While I enjoy suspense with little or no romance just fine, I've yet to read a book by this author that I didn't either like or love.

Now, I'll admit this one had a bumpy start for me. Through the first quarter or so, I had some trouble making technical and emotional sense of the story. And because I couldn't get too good of a handle on Jason and his logic for some time, I wasn't feeling him.

I'll further admit that I didn't buy into the romance. First kisses when one or both of the characters are injured, bloody, and dirty doesn't strike the most romantic note. Also, in most cases, I have a hard time with stories where the hero or heroine is "finding God" for the first time while simultaneously getting romantically involved with someone. I can't help thinking that if one relationship hits a big bump too soon, the other one (or both) might not stick, especially when both the spiritual and romantic relationships formed over just a few days.

Besides that, yes, I know it's fiction, but if desperation drives a man to abduct and proceed to order a woman around by threatening her with a gun (while she's holding his baby, no less), I just don't see the abductor becoming a wise or fitting option for a romantic partner, and certainly not in less than a week's time. Sure, he may not be a bad person at heart, but he's shown what he's capable of in a crisis. What happens the next time a huge crisis blindsides him and he again becomes desperate?

Anyhow. With all that said, I still enjoyed the suspense storyline in this novel, and I found the heroine relatable in other ways. I'll be keeping my eyes open for the next book in this series.
