When trauma surgeon Ellie Sullivan witnesses a crime and saves the life of the victim, FBI agent Max Daniels fears she may be in danger from the peeps. But Ellie has her sister's wedding to attend and can't put her life on hold, so Max tags along as her "date" and ends up dealing with a stalker, vindictive crooks, volatile family dynamics, and the surprising passion that is rapidly developing between them.
Verdict: With her classic combination of easygoing humor, heart-stopping romance, and nail-biting danger, Garwood takes a tough, protective hero and a brilliant, courageous heroine on a risky, romantic journey that will have fans cheering as the good guys win, the bad guys get their comeuppance, and Ellie and Max get their much--deserved happy ending.
