About the book:
TRAIL OF SECRETS
Jewel Caraway thought she’d left her mistakes in the past – but then her past arrives at her door. Though she’s thrilled to reunite with her estranged sister, something about her sister’s new husband makes Jewel uneasy. Does he know her secret? Is he the one behind the growing list of attacks against her? And if he is involved… does that mean her sister is, too? With nowhere else to turn, Jewel must rely on police chief Colin Winters – the first man to make the widow question her resolve to never love again. But will he stay by her side when her guarded secrets are revealed?
Mountain Cove: In the Alaskan wilderness, love and danger collide.
This is another intense romantic suspense novel!
Even though this is the sixth book in the series the actual plot is a stand-alone story. The only thing that connects it to the other books is that a number of the secondary characters in this book were main characters in previous ones. There are hints to where their lives have gone since their stories were told.
I love picking up a book by Elizabeth Goddard. I know that I’m in for a real treat. There was no disappointment for me in this one. She has once again crafted wonderful characters. Both of the main characters made appearances in previous books in the series. This time they are front and center claiming all of our attention.
The story starts off with an incredible adrenaline rush as Jewel’s life is endangered almost from the beginning. It continues its roller coaster ride through danger and brief periods of rest and contemplation. Who is after her? What is her secret and is it the reason she is in danger? Can she trust her heart and her life to Chief Colin Winters?
There were so many twists to the story that I was kept guessing how it all tied together until the very end. If you have any interest in suspense novels you won’t go wrong by picking up this wonderful book.
