4 Stars ~ Eden's childhood had been wrought with tragedy; first her younger sister had been stolen from her bed without a trace, and then overwhelmed with grief her mother had committed suicide. To put the painful past behind them, her father moved them to small town Waverly where he'd become the Chief of Police. Following in her father's footsteps, Eden went into criminology and when the time came she stepped into the Chief's position. Jake is a wounded veteran. No one doubted his dedication to ...more
A Harlequin Intrigue by Gayle Wilson that was published a few years ago. It was good. Not quite as much romance as I'd expect from a category romance but it was alright since the story's focus was more on the suspense/mystery/intrigue. This one was not part of a series nor is there a cliffhanger to drive you crazy.

Gayle Wilson is a master at character-driven books. Both the hero and heroine are strong yet intensely vulnerable, and immensely likeable.

Starting this book two days before Christmas is not the brightest idea. I knew I didn't have time to just read until it ended, and previous acquaintance with Gayle Wilson's writing should have warned me that she engages the reader immediately and doesn't let go, even when that reader is unable to continue reading. The mind goes on to play around with ideas and possibilities until it drives you crazy and you have to read again. So I spent the day alternating between Christmas things I had to get ...more

I bought this book first because it was by Gayle Wilson, second because the premise sounded good and third because I was "intrigued" by the hero Jake Underwood. Injured with a head trama, a war hero and having flashbacks about a kidnapped little girl puts him at risk since the townsfolk assume his supposedly "inside information" means he's involved in her disappearance. Luckily the local sheriff Eden Reddick believes him and is grateful for any help he can provide. Jake and Eden were a

Jake Underwood, a wounded warrior, knew from serving his country just how much could be lost in the blink of an eye. Returning home, he was scarred and grieving for those left behind, the last thing he needed was to find himself responsible for another life. But a little girl was missing and one look in the police chief Eden Reddick's tear-filled eyes and Jake couldn't help but feel her pain.

Eden was grateful for whatever assistance Jake could offer--until he uncovered a connection to her own pa

As always, Gayle Wilson spins a mystery that you can't put down. Her characters are well developed and come alive as you read. Wonderful, fast moving storyline that does not "wrap up" a moment too soon! Can't wait for another one :-)

Just didn't grab me. It felt like a series of events with little emotion in spite of the excellent premise of an ex soldier with PSTD becoming psychic.
