I really enjoyed this story about Luke Cooper and Abby Chandler and her son Stevie. This is a friends to lovers story, Luke being a fellow marine to Abby's deceased husband Matt.

This is an intrigue and I haven't read a lot of this line. It is the third of the Cooper Justice series so I've missed the 1st two with stories about Luke's sister Hannah and brother Sam.

Abby Chandler has been avoiding Luke Cooper for three years, ever since a one-night stand following her husband’s funeral left her with their son. Now she’s in trouble because of secrets her late husband was so good at keeping and she and the boy are in a run for their lives. Going to Luke wasn’t her first choice, but he might know which secret has become so important people are willing to kill for it.

I was raised in Alabama, so I know we Southerners don't hide our crazy people—we showcase them. Eccentric people make for the best stories, and we Southerners do love our stories. The need to tell stories has been a driving force in my life from childhood.
