About The Book

A killer who will stop at nothing…

Framed for a murder he didn’t commit, firefighter Beckett Duke gave up on everything—including his marriage to spirited Laney Holland. That is, until Laney’s life is threatened. Knowing the real killer is still at large, Beckett now has one purpose: protecting the woman he loves…and their unborn child. But sometimes an innocent man’s second chance comes with a deadly price.

‘After his train wreck of a life, he wasn’t sure anything he did would be valued by God. God watched over other people, not Beckett.’

Dana Mentink begins a brand new series with this one set in Death Valley. Beckett Duke is framed for a murder and turns from his wife and unborn child in order to protect them. But when he is released from jail, both his and Laney’s lives are threatened. Can they survive long enough to flush out a killer?

I love inspirational romantic suspense and Mentink always does it well. Populated with good characters and a good plot, with a surprise twist, this one is sure to please suspense fans.

My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. I received no compensation and the opinion in this review is my own.
