Eighteen months ago, Nora James watched a criminal known ironically as Goodwill shoot her father in cold blood. She ran, and later assumed a new identity. Nora now lives as Danielle, a mechanic in a small town. FBI agent Nate Andersen has been sent to find Nora and keep her safe while Goodwill goes to trial. Nate is wary about getting involved with Nora because hes afraid of repeating the pattern of hurtfulness the men in his family are famous for. The author does a nice job of setting up the mystery and then throwing red herrings at the reader. The true identity of Goodwills assassin is a nice twist, too.

This book was provided for review by the author.

Having read Johnson's first book I had high expectations for this one, and I wasn't disappointed. This was a great second novel. The writing was the same as Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn, but yet there was something slightly different. My only guess is that with the second book there were grammatical and maybe semantically different aspects, but I would imagine that only comes with refining the author's style.

This story had great twists, and really kept you guessing whodunit right until the end. The opening was captivating, it jumps right into the action. While the action dwindles slightly as the story progresses there is enough going on in the romance of the story to pick up the slack until the action picks back up near the end.

I liked the characters, Nora (Danielle) and Nate were very well written characters. One of the themes through this book (and Johnsons other book) is that the characters realize that they can not make it through their obstacles alone, many times throughout the book both Nate and Nora ask God to help them and protect them. While I wouldn't say this is a religious book, it is an underlying theme.

This was a quick read. It only took me a few hours to read it cover to cover. Like I said I was not disappointed with this book, it lived up to the expectations I had after reading The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn.
