About the book: In the wide-open landscape of Pennsylvania, Charlotte Martin and her father live a peaceful life on their farm...or so it seems. In truth, the rural locale provides the perfect front for the father-daughter NSA operatives as they expertly carry out their mission: using a high-tech computer system, they protect a team of undercover agents. Some would kill to have access to this system, and it makes Charlotte and her father prime targets. It was only a matter of time before this nightmare unexpectedly crashed down on them, and only Charlotte escaped with her life. Before Dwight Martin dies, though, he initiated the failsafe lockdown, and now Charlotte's the only one who can access the system.
Writer Jake Bradford left the serene Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia for the hustle and bustle of New York to pursue his dreams and never looked back. Until now. Entrusted with his ailing grandmother's care, Jake knows he needs help—and he can't believe his luck when a lovely young woman providentially appears on his doorstep. Charlotte creates a new persona for herself and quickly develops a bond with Jake's grandmother. But it's the connection she feels with Jake that makes it almost too easy to lose sight of her reality: she is being hunted by men who will stop at nothing to access the intelligence she protects. With time running out, can the couple find a future together, or will Charlotte's secrets tear them apart?
My review: I LOVED this book! I loved Charlotte, she's a really great character. She's taking a break from working with her dad and his assistant one morning when she hears gunshots. Considering that she and her dad work for the NSA, gunshots are not a good thing. When she glances out the window her eyes lock with a man with hard eyes and he starts coming after her. She quickly gets out, gets rid of anything trackable that she has with her and works to get herself off the grid. She knows that she's the only one who will be able to start the program that she and her dad work with back up and that she must stay safe until she can meet up with the NSA again.
Jake is a well-known author whose parents have just died. Leaving him in charge of the farm that has been in their family for generations and his grandmother who is going senile. He's not sure how he's going to juggle everything. And then he meets Charlotte. She's going by the name Hannah now, and accepts Jake's offer of a job to be his grandmother's companion and keep her from burning down her home.
I loved the chemistry that Jake and Charlotte have from the beginning. I love that Charlotte is able to step in to care for Jake's grandmother with as much love and compassion as though she was her own grandmother. I love the level of action and suspense in this one. There isn't a dull moment, Charlotte is constantly having to watch her back to avoid getting caught by the killers. I loved that it felt as though Charlotte and Jake are real people that do live in the middle of nowhere in Virginia. The plot is awesome, the ending was great too. I loved the characters so much that now I just want to know what happened to them! Maybe if I'm lucky that answer will be in another one of Traci Hunter Abramson's books soon.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
