Mick finds herself house sitting for her uncle on New Year's Eve. In the middle of the night, her sleepwalking wakes her up. She immediately hears strange sounds. Being the good cop she is, she hurries to investigate. She soon regrets it! Turns out there's a few thieves in the house. When Mick discovers evidence she wasn't meant to see against her uncle, she realises she must let the bad guys take her hostage.
Mick is fighting a few personal demons. She keeps having a nightmare about her mother's murder which makes her sleepwalk at night. She still doesn't know what really happened that day or who the killer was. She's grown-up into a really tough girl who can take care of herself and knows how to use a gun. I loved the tension between her and Jason the thief. She's really an honest and good cop. She knows she shouldn't have a relationship with a criminal but when you're stuck with a guy as good-looking and charismatic as Jason, how can you resist? Will she do anything about the piece of evidence she found against her uncle? One thing's certain, her uncle is not who she thinks he is.
What a great thriller : non-stop action, great characters, sexual tension and a forbidden romance! It's a roller coaster ride of twists and turns and sizzling romance. I've read this in one sitting. The plot is so fast-paced it leaves you breathless. This is the first book by Karen Robards I read and I'm definitely intrigued to read more of her work.
4 out of 5 stars!
