FBI agent Sara Vaughn believes a group of pharmaceutical businessmen are engineering drugs with deadly results. Her boss won't approve a sting operation, so she goes rogue—following the suspects on a hike in the Cascade Mountains to record evidence. But when Sara witnesses them murder one of their own, they target her. Saved by a handsome volunteer mountain rescue worker, Sara at first suspects Will Rankin is another bad guy hunting her. But when the widowed father of two risks everything to save her, she knows that Will is all that's standing between her and seeing Christmas morning.

Echo Mountain: Saving lives and finding love in the mountains of Washington State

Review: It has been a long time since I read a romantic suspense novel. This was really great read if you are the type of person that likes more suspense then romance. It is also a faith based novel, so there isn't any graphic sex or anything else of that nature. It's a clean read. Also, don't worry about it being overly religious, it isn't and most of the strength of faith belongs to Will.

That said, that doesn't meant that the book is light reading. It does keep you on the edge of you seat wondering what's going to happen to Sara, especially after she sees too much and the group she was tailing see her. The story isn't as fast as a lot of other novels in this series, but it does have a fantastic heroine that doesn't take any malarkey. Will is fantastic too. He's strong but a very good and capable father, trying to cope with the death of his wife a few years back.

Sara is FBI, but she's gone rogue to catch some unsavory characters. In doing so she drags Will and his daughter down a dangerous road. It is easy to understand why she doesn't trust Will when he first shows up trying to help her.

Will has problems of his own. Getting involved helping her is putting his daughter at risk as well as his in-laws.  Will really takes charge in his own way, when it comes to keeping Sara safe, but not in the way you usually see in these types of books. He's not a He-Man type of guy, but he is the protective kind of guy, and I think I like that better. I also like that Sara doesn't let the man do all the rough stuff.

I really loved this book.
