A relaxing weekend away turns quickly in to a suspense filled thriller, a short read but an exciting one.

Another suspenseful Melinda Leigh story!!

Melinda Leigh did a great job of keeping my interest in this story.

She developed her characters well and did a great job tying the ends of this Short Story together!!!

Wow, this was really short!!! It was good but nothing special. I guess it was just different from everything I usually read. Almost like a short story compiled alongside a list of other suspense short stories as one book kind of thing. I didn't care for Sean much in the previous books because he just seemed too disrespectful to his wife even though he claimed he was happily married. I don't know I guess he was just too different from the guys I'm used to reading about in romance. It's normal I s ...more

Sean and his wife Amanda take off on a weekend business trip that has an added bonus of weekend getaway. They are both looking forward to a mini vacation without the kids to indulge in some decadent romance. What they get is criminals running from the authorities, a strung out druggie reeking of pure maliciousness, and a small child who is scared and alone in the woods.
In true Melinda Leigh fashion once He Can Fall begins the pace is fast and the suspense stays high. Former Army Ranger Sean Wil

REVIEW – He Can Fall by Melinda Leigh

Whew! This was edge-of-your-seat action from start to finish! Danger, suspense and love combine for a fast-paced enjoyable read.

He Can Fall lives up to the usual Melinda Leigh standards and is a thrilling story of how quickly an unforeseen event can uproot our lives. Characters Amanda and Sean demonstrate strength, resourcefulness and love as the story unfolds.

Although this was a short story, the book was filled with depth and layers of intrigue that make you

When Sean agrees to do a security consult on a remote inn for a friend prior to it opening it's doors to the public, he thinks the highlight of the weekend will be some quality alone time with his wife, at no point did he think he'd have to put his Ranger skills to the test in order to save everyone from a group of armed robbers who think the inn is the perfect place to hide.

For such a short story, so much happens. It is action packed from beginning to end and Melinda does not disappoint! This

Fifty nine pages of evil, action and a thrill ride!!! Who would imagine a business/pleasure trip would turn into a nightmare? A short story involving Sean and Amanda Wilson, giving us an insight as to how life can be unpredictable and threatening. As much as it was a horrific experience, Amanda stayed strong and Sean kept his wits to save everyone from four armed men. The whole story was a fast and even paced narration to a great end. Even being a short story, the chemistry and trust between Ama ...more

What an adrenaline rush all packed into a short suspenseful story. All the characters were fascinating even the bad guys. It was also very noticeable that the author incorporated her real life training in Kenpo techniques into this book which for one made me never want to take her on in real life and and loving the creative way the hero took out the bad guys.

Even though this was a fairly quick read it was jammed packed with action and suspense from the beginning and had a very satisfying ending

Although this was a shorter read and read out of sequence, I enjoy every bit of it. I understand how every man is possessive and protective of their wife. Shawn is no exception to the rule. I could visually see smoke billowing out of his head when he saw that ID10T cut his wife.

Great Short Thriller for Series

Thank you Melinda for giving us a insight into Sean and his wife in this very short thriller that wasn’t in Westbury. The fact that their love and understanding of each other helped each of them through the crisis was amazingly written with actions more than straight out words.

Love her series and look forward to reading final in the See Can series this weekend. If you looking for something to read on a quick hour flight or while waiting somewhere and hour this is

Acordei às 3.30h da noite e, para evitar que os pensamentos deambulem por onde não devem a essas horas inglórias, terminei esta short-story. Ao contrário da anterior que li, de outra autora, esta valeu a pena. Gostei muito do casal Sean e Amanda e da forma querida como interagem. O enredo do assalto teve pormenores que não me pareceram convincentes, mas pronto, serviu para entreter.

A very fast and easy read!

Having read the previous books in the series I realised I should read read this short novel, and am not disappointed!! A fast paced short story about being in the wrong place but at least having the skills to taken down the bad people! Enough said really! If you have read the previous books you will most likely enjoy this one!

I really like this family.

This was a fast paced and quick read. No lurking bad guy. You knew right up front who the bad guys were. They were evil personified. But then there was one little twist. Never disappointed by this author. On to the next.

I really liked this main character in the first two books in this series. I would have liked to have read a full-length novel about him and his family. However, the story was filled with action and kept my attention throughout.

I feel there could have been so much more to the story like her other books but I have to say for a short you are not disappointed. But this character needs more justice since he is always helping everyone in other books.

He was allowed a curious conscious for a fleeting moment as only Leigh acknowledges

Getaway vacation turned into a test of faith and an acceptance of training used at its best gives this quick read a treasure.

Quick thrilling read

Very quick action packed read. Took me about 30 minutes to read, but none the less for the plot line. The author was able to keep my attention and increase my heart rate as I read. Mother great read for on Mrs. Leigh.

Short but a great read!

I don’t always care for short stories since they rarely get much information into them about the characters but this one was really good. Enough information for all of the characters with a great, even plausible storyline. Highly recommend it.

Not gory, but gripping.

Great little read with the grip of Melissa's longer stories and a good story line with a twist.
Really good of you haven't got the time or inclination to get into a long story, but need to read. Not gory, but gripping.
