This book is a standalone novella in the Rescue Me Collection and is a romantic suspense.
Jenna Trippleton has lead a hidden and dangerous life and taking a chance to make a safer life for herself, she takes the first bus out of town. She arrives in the small town of Pella and immediately feels drawn to the place and its people. With an quick offer of a job and a place to stay, Jenna can finally relax and be at peace. On her first day at her new job at the pizza parlour, she meets handsome deputy Henri Gunther and sparks begin to ignite between them.
After a promising future, Henry’s dreams were shattered and since then he has stayed clear of relationships. However the new waitress has him rethinking the walls he has built around himself and maybe it was time to take a chance on love again.
This was a fairly instant romance between Jenna and Henri which was quickly established and I would have preferred for the time line to be longer to make it more believable. I also felt the feelings of love were ‘told’ rather than ‘felt’ so a little more depth and angst would have given that. The danger was an added depth though that gave the storyline a dramatic ending.
Overall though this was an engaging and romantic quick read with a good cast of characters for that small town feeling. The plotline was fairly straight forward and no outlandish curveballs thrown in. An enjoyable read. Three and a half stars.
