Return to Alaska’s Grizzly Harbor where danger strikes with arctic precision and love thaws the coldest hearts in the new romantic suspense from USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane.

After an explosion that should have killed her, Caradine Scott barely escaped her criminal family by leaving her old identity behind her. These days she runs the Water’s Edge Café in a rugged little town on the edge of nowhere, vowing never to let anyone close to her again.

Isaac Gentry is back home after his career in the military, playing the part of an unassuming local in Grizzly Harbor, while also overseeing Alaska Force’s special ops work as the leader and commanding officer he was in the Marines and beyond. He has better things to do than obsess over a woman who claims she hates him, but every glimpse he gets of the vulnerability beneath her prickly exterior is a distraction…and a challenge he can’t ignore.

When Caradine’s demons catch up with her, her café isn’t the only thing that blows up. Her past pushes them together, and closer to a future that’s been waiting for them all this time. They just have to survive long enough to enjoy it. (Goodreads)


Caradine has been working at the Water’s Edge Cafe for quite some time.  But she always knew that the day would come when she would be forced to leave.  She planned for it and practiced until she knew exactly what to do.  So when the Cafe has an explosion, she is prepared to leave and never look back.  She goes on the run again and she eventually thinks that she is safe and has outrun those who want to harm her.  She should have known better where Isaac Gentry was concerned.  He is the head of the Alaska Force’s Special Ops and  a pain in her side since she met him.  He will not stop until he finds her and finds out why someone bombed the Cafe.  

Isaac is a loyal person and he has always had a soft spot for Caradine.  He thinks that she has a soft spot for him, but she will never admit it.   She has decided a long time ago to never let anyone get too close, because then she will be vulnerable and this is not acceptable.  But fate has another idea and they find themselves thrown together, to figure out Caradine’s past and their future.  Can they do it in time to get their happily ever after or is that not in the cards for them?

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Caradyne can be sarcastic and mean and after a while I got a little tired of it.  I know she used it as a defense mechanism, but I just wanted her to stop.  That is only my opinion and others may not agree with me.  

The action is non-stop as they try to figure out who is after Caradine and how to stop them.  The author is very talented in descriptive writing and through most of the books, I felt like I was watching all the action taking place.  She is also very talented in creating tension in the written word and the suspense was very real.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted romantic suspense.  This book has a great story, engaging characters and enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.
