Freelance journalist and single mom, Katrina (Trin) Paige, has recently returned to her hometown to help her sister care for their elderly father. They’ve barely settled back into Durango’s daily life when her rebellious teenage son gets himself in tumultuous waters. While being rescued by the local fire department, he unwittingly uncovers a decades-old crime hidden underneath the churning rapids of the Animas River.
Once Trin’s life is back on an even keel, her sharp nose for a compelling story starts twitching and she dives headfirst into an investigation of her own. The more she uncovers, the closer she gets to the firefighter who not only pulled her son from the river, but who also seems present everywhere she turns.
Bodhi (Roadkill) Jones doesn’t believe in things like fate, although, he can’t deny the way his life seems to be entwined with the spunky redhead is more than mere coincidence. In fact, he’s been wondering how it is possible she escaped his attention growing up in the same town, even though she is a few years older. Swept up in an unfamiliar current, he finds himself looking for ways to spend time with her and her family.
However, when a murder investigation touches his personal life, it invades Trin’s as well, leaving him scrambling to make sure the woman he’s fast falling for is protected.
Freya Barker’s storytelling is amazing, unique and combined with the mix of characters, especially from other books and series, it’s always like coming home. Bodhi is a lovable, understanding character who is sure of himself and knows what he wants. And of course, he’s hot :).
Trin is so sweet and wonderful, and her fierce independence is admirable. The story is gripping, full of suspense and danger, and I love the way Freya crisscrosses her books. So we get to see Arrows Edge again. The subplot is about prejudice between races and how to overcome it.The story engages the reader from the first page to the last with a very gripping story through which Trin with her flair for a suspenseful story gets into danger, that’s when Bodhi comes to her rescue and I enjoyed the dynamics of Bodhi with her family, and his family. And of course with Trin in the form of very steamy erotic moments.
I love all of these books and can’t wait for the next one 🙂
