This book masterfully interweaves several hot button topics from modern life (the health care system, mental health, and homelessness to name a few). It evokes feelings of anger, sympathy and even shock. A scared little girl and her calls for help are the catalyst to a situation that quickly spirals out of control and ends in tragedy. Marcus OConnell is the deputy Sheriff who responds to 6 year old Evas calls for help. He is desperate to find her after hearing she is frightened by the man with a ...more

The second book in this series is an intense drama filled with emotions dealing with the frustrations of a broken system that leaves a young mother and child homeless and a lone man abandoned by those in authority who should have had his back. When justice takes a harsh turn, trying to make things right, Marcus finds that not only does his family have his back, but someone he has loved for a long time is ready to step in to help him.

This is a fast-paced story that will tug at your heartstrings

This is going to be a great series. In this second story Marcus finds himself searching for a young girl who needs help however he never imagined what would happen when he found her. So much drama and tension in this intriguing and addictive story.

What a well written and absorbing book which I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend.

Really good addition to the series! This was a more suspenseful read than normal from Ms. Eckhart but really good. This series seems to have a little more edge to it than the Friessens. It's a really good expansion of her repertoire. This story was heartbreaking in lots of ways but did end with a HEA. Can't wait to read more about the O'Connells.
I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

Marcus is the deputy sheriff of his town and loves his job. He is covering everything on the sly for his sheriff who lost his wife recently and isn't coping well. Charlotte runs the office. When calls come in from a frightened little girl, Marcus races to her aid, but where is she? They eventually track down the cell phone call from Eve. A small town. A scared little girl. A man with a gun. A small cabin deep in the woods. This book was a wonderful story.

4.5 ***** stars. New family series that is more suspenseful than the Friessens. Deputy Marcus answers a 911 call from scared 6 year old Eva. When he finally finds her, the situation is not what he was expecting. When a Good Samaritan tries to offer a safe place for a homeless mother and daughter, things just spiral down. Its interesting how the story unravels and how people are misunderstood. Unfortunately, life is not always fair. They find out the hard way. Well written!

This multifaceted author once again delivers a thought provoking and action filled story.
Be aware that though this is the second book in the OConnell series, its definitely a standalone, so no worries if you havent read book one.
This time the OConnell we get to meet is Marcus. The middle child and the once bad boy whos now lead deputy in his town.
Calls to 911 come in different varieties. Sometimes they are prank calls, but when the same caller, this time a child, dials 911 not twice but three

The second book in the O'Connell family series did not disappoint! True to the nature of other series written by this author, you really get to know each of the members of the family. When you are finished reading their story you feel like you have known them all you life. The family connection that runs through this series, like with her other series, makes you want to get to know them better and makes you want to be a part of that connection. Another very well written story! I can not wait for ...more

This book is the second in a new series, although it can be read as a stand-alone. I am thoroughly enjoying the dynamic of the OConnell family and hope that this series will continue for a long time. In this book, Marcus OConnell who is a sheriffs deputy receives a phone call from a six year old girl who appears to be in danger. Ifs difficult for him to determine the situation as the girl keeps hanging up. By the third call he is convinced and is determined to find out the situation. Things are ...more

I have already fallen in love with the O'Connell Series and Family! Marcus is such a great and caring Deputy! I am beyond happy that Marcus and Charlotte are now together and they taking care of Reine's little girl, Eva! I am so ready for Book 3, Lorhainne Eckhart!
