Sarah Connelly thought life had thrown her enough curves. After all she is thirty five and has been married three times. She just moved from Louisiana to Boston in the middle of winter and she’s taken custody of her fifteen year old niece Kit, who is a bit more than a handful. When she comes home to find that Kit has runaway, she has no idea where to turn for help.
When her employee tells her about Father Clancy Donovan and his work trying to get young girls off the Boston streets, she takes a chance that he’d be willing to help her. Sarah is in for yet another shock when she realizes that Clancy is not the older, reserved priest that she had in mind.
Sarah and Clancy will hit the lesser-known streets of Boston that have come to be known as the Combat Zone. They will post Kit’s picture anywhere they can and talk to anyone who might have seen the pretty young blonde. They will be one step behind someone who stalks the streets looking for girls just like Kit.
The suspense in this book quickly picks up as Kit’s innocence and her very life are put in serious jeopardy. Sarah and Clancy’s own lives are threatened as they continue pursuing every lead to find her and bring her home.
I discovered Breton’s books a few years ago and quickly became a fan of this author who leaves us gripping the pages of her books to see what will happen next. This book was no disappointment. Not only was the suspense enough to keep me up till midnight reading, she also threw in a romance that slowly heated up to the point of combustion. I’ll once again be counting down the months till her next book, Lethal Lies comes out.
