Sweet and mild romance

Kelly McQueen, an army CID, criminal investigation division, agent, not only battles urrent investigations, she battles unresolved issues regarding her deceased father, who before he died was a wayward, no-good Cajun. So when Army Captain, John Philip Thibedeaux
(how much more Cajun can we get here,)enters her life, with a wayward-with-the-ladies reputation of his own, well we can see why
Kelly might have a few reservations regarding captain Phil. And Phil isn’t without his own demons—his past boa

What a gripping read!!!! Once I cracked the book open I pretty much read it right through in one sitting. I just couldn't put it down. Giusti knows how to build tension, strategically divulging clues one at a time while she gradually cranks up the action until an explosion of suspense sent me reeling at the end. Brilliantly done.

Phil and Kelly's slow burn romantic development added its own unique blend of toe-curling suspense as well. Definitely a winning combination and one you don't want to mi

This was one of the best of the "love inspired" [read"romance"] suspense [read "mystery] novels so far, and I've read dozens. Set in the military, the author grew up a military "brat," and knows what she is talking about. In addition, it has a plot factor at the end not seen in any other so far.

Really a good read, with lots of action! Captain Phil and CID agent Kelly have to find out quickly who's targeting soldiers and what illegal activity is so secret that people are willing to kill to keep it that way.

Enjoyed this fast action packed story. It was nonstop action and a very interesting story line. Captain Thibodeaux was a great match to Kelly McQueen. I would recommend this read if you like a lot of action. Also though this is part of the Love Inspired suspense line it wasn't preachy.
While I like learning more about Kelly's background, I still felt like her relationship with Phil was forced timewise, especially given their problems with love and commitment in the past.
