Rachel Long is a reporter on her way to the top, at least that is her dream. She lives frugally and saves lots of money, knowing that someday she will be responsible for her younger sister who has Down's Syndrome. Rachel has her life planned out, and a man, nor love is involved anywhere in that plan. After being deserted by her father as a child, and then having her first boyfriend leave her too, all because they couldn't deal with Cara.

Love this book. Then again, you can't go wrong because it's a Love-Inspired. There could have been a little more proofreading, but it's a great story. When your life's in danger, and you don't know who's out to get you, who can you trust? Have you ever felt like you were suspicious of everybody and didn't feel safe trusting anybody?

Intrepid (is there any other kind?) reporter Rachel Long is writing about the recent gang murders when she's given a tip from an anonymous source: a vigilante is stalking the city and taking out gang members. Matt Franklin, a detective, wants her out of harm's way but Rachel feels a need to cover the story no matter what the cost. This book feels like a retread of other mysteries I've read; the characters aren't that interesting. I guessed the vigilante before the end.
It's the holiday season in Lake City and someone is killing gang members. Reporter Rachel Long and Detective Matt Franklin work together to solve the murders, as their attraction to each other grows they each must over come old hurts left over from previous relationships. Very good inspirational mystery.
Great book. Rachel was a real life hero.
