Lacy DeGeorgio never imagined she’d have to be responsible for anyone but herself. She’s strong, stubborn and fiercely independent. She needs no one. She’s a woman determined to do things her way, on her own. But when a freak boating accident takes her sister Hannah’s life, Lacy finds herself not only back in her hometown of Lake George, New York, but in a custody battle for her eleven-year-old nephew, Andy. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, pesky State Trooper Frank Harmon starts showing up, tearing down all her defenses, making her want things she’s never wanted before. She’ll trust him with her nephew, but can she trust him with her heart?
New York State Trooper Frank Harmon is a man of honor and duty. He’s always done things by the book, believing the law always works in favor of those who uphold it. Until the day he took a domestic disturbance call at the DeGeorgio Trailer, and even though he knew something bad was about to happen, he had to walk away. Two days later, he pulled Hannah DeGeorgio’s body from the icy cold waters of Lake George, changing his life forever. He sets out to make sure Hannah's killer is brought to justice and in the process makes a home for a family he thought he never wanted.
I really liked this book. The author, Jenni Holbrrok, wrote an interesting and compelling story. This is book two in the New York State Trooper series. I did not read the first book but felt it completely unnecessary. Book two was complete and self explanatory as the author introduced the main characters and gave a glimpse of who they were before this story. I found myself pulled into the story and felt completely vested in the outcome. Truly, a good book to read. This is not the typical love story nor is it the typical mystery. The characters are well rounded and interesting and I found myself drawn in and interested in them as people, not just the characters within a book. I hope the author decides to write another in this series as I’d like to see where the characters end up.
