Single-mother Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson’s got an ocean of trouble on her hands. Her daughter Dakota is safe, but her cancer is threatening a comeback, and Lori needs JT—Dakota’s daddy and the man who taught Lori everything—alive and kicking. Problem is, he’s behind bars, and heading for death row. Desperate to save him, Lori does a deal, taking on off-the-books job from shady FBI agent Alex Monroe. Bring back on-the-run felon, Gibson “The Fish” Fletcher, and JT walks free. Following Fletcher from Florida to California, Lori teams up with local bounty hunter Dez McGregor and his team. But Dez works very differently to Lori, and the tension between them threatens to put the whole job in danger. With Monroe pressuring Lori for results, the clock ticking on JT’s life, and nothing about the Fletcher case adding up, Lori’s hitting walls at every turn. But this is one job she’s got to get right, or she’ll lose everything.

My Review

Having never read this author I wasn’t sure just what to expect. Also as this is a second in a series i didn’t have the background on Lori Anderson and was hoping it wouldn’t be too difficult to follow along.

While this is a series I found it worked well as a standalone. The character is well developed and the book flows easily. The pace is just right being neither to fast or to slow.

The fact is I enjoy the concept of a female who can also do bounty hunting which seems to be more male dominated. Lori is a contradiction as her chosen job is difficult and she also has tonraose her child alone. Not one tough job but two.

The author did a wonderful job with this book and has me very interested in reading the first in the series and any subsequent ones as well. I think I have just found a new author to out on my watch list
