First the fire, then the heat…
A brutal home invasion. Two small traumatized survivors who may have witnessed the horror. Lieutenant Sam Holland has never worked a case quite like this one, in which her eyewitnesses are five-year-old twins. But when Sam steps up in a big way for them, she risks her heart as much as her career.
While Sam and her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, go to battle in more ways than one for her tiny witnesses, her colleague Sergeant Tommy “Gonzo” Gonzales battles his own demons. Months of unbearable grief and despair come to a head in an unimaginable way that threatens Gonzo’s status with the department and his relationship with his fiancée, Christina.
With trouble both at the precinct and on the case, Sam struggles to keep her priorities straight at home and at work while trying not to lose her heart to her latest crime victims.
Sam Holland never does anything the easy way but she’ll always do the right thing, and that is just one of the many reasons why she is so much loved by her friends and her loved ones.
And she does the right thing for a couple of traumatized five year-old kids when their parents are murdered in the most horrific way ever: she finds justice for them and also opens her heart and home to them.
But this story is much more than that. It’s about the type of relationship that everyone hopes for: a true partnership with respect, love, acceptance and appreciation for everything both partners bring to their relationship.
It’s about Sam finally adding to her family, only not the way she had expected.
It’s about the friendships that enrich both Sam and Nick’s lives and how their friends trust them to always be there through the good and bad.
More than anything, I am loving the growth and change that Sam and Nick go through with every addition to this series and I have to give props to the author for growing the characters in a way that keeps the stories interesting and the readers still invested after so many books.
