CORNERED AT CHRISTMAS is the first book in the brand new Rushing Creek Crime Spree series by Barb Han and centers around a wealthy rancher who is shocked to see his wife return from the dead in the start of this reunited love story. I felt the details of this story were a little disjointed in the telling at the beginning making it a tad confusing to follow, but once we got into the action, things smoothed out a bit.

On the very day Mitch is taking the twins in for a check-up, hoping invasive surgery isn’t necessary to save a life, Kimberly shows up outside the clinic to catch a glimpse of her husband and twins. But she’s been followed.

Cornered at Christmas
Barb Han

Mitch is in for a big surprise when his dead wife, Kimberly, shows up alive. Along with her return she brings the trouble she is running from.
To save their lives and their twins’ lives the run again.
Action packed from the beginning, Barb Han has put together a story that has you holding your breath at times, sighing with relief, and not able to put it down until the end.
Emotions were touched and you might need Kleenex when the ‘package’ arrives.
Looking forward to

The past comes alive as Mitch’s wife returns from the dead.
An intriguing story of trying to stay alive. Is it really abandonment as one seeks safety for the ones they love. To belong and to be loved = FAMILY.
As the Kent family comes together to support and protect you feel the love.
I can’t wait to read more about the Kent family and their cowboy ways.

This thriller pulled me in and kept me on the edge of my seat until the end.It has action, suspense, mystery and danger. Add in the wonderful characters and this is a -MUST READ. I can't wait to read the next book in what I know will be another amazing series.

I am not sure why this book is titled Cornered at Christmas. I was expecting the holidays to play a much larger role in the story.
