The next exciting installment in the She Can Series finds Police Chief Mike O’Connell risking his job and his heart when the two become entangled with horse trainer, Rachel Parker.
Rachel left Westbury in pursuit of a riding career but when a terrible accident puts an end to her dreams she returns to her family farm as a trainer. Someone is not happy with her return and the list of possible suspects just keeps on growing. When Rachel’s life is put in danger, Police Chief Mike O’Connell takes it personally and sets about protecting Rachel at all costs. The longer they spend together, the closer they get and that leads Mike into unfamiliar territory – his job or his heart?
Mike appeared in She Can Run along with a few other familiar names that crop up in this book. The main male characters in this series seem to be, Jack, Mike, Sean, Quinn, and Ethan, although there are a couple of new leads that will appear who still have links to the town. I really enjoy series that connect characters. In a small town, as Westbury appears to be, it makes sense that the same people would crop up, however with the number of crimes they have I’m not sure I would want to live there!
An exciting romantic suspense that kept me wondering as there are lots of possible ‘bad guys’ to choose from.
