Completely unaware that her sister is searching for her, Pepper Prescott has carved out a comfortable career as one of Washington D.C.’s best landscape designers. Using the name Jackie Porter, she has worked hard to overcome her broken family and subsequent nomadic life in foster care. With only one solid role model in her past, she has found someone else to look up to: General Jennifer Napier. As luck would have it, Gen. Napier is signing her autobiography at a nearby bookstore, so “Jackie” has the opportunity to speak with her idol. When her idol’s pedestal comes crashing down, “Jackie” is accidentally in the wrong place at the right time. Witness to an unbelievable crime, she flees D.C., and sheds her identity like a pair of socks. Pepper Prescott is on the run.

With only one safe haven in mind, Pepper returns to the Idaho ranch where she had finally found a home. To the one person who made her feel safe. Unfortunately, the man who was waiting for Pepper has never made her feel safe, a lot of other things, but not safe. Dan Graham has been looking for Pepper for several months, hoping to tell her about her inheritance. Now he is the bait in a government trap, and this ranch is the last place for Pepper.

As Christina Dodd continues her series on the displaced Prescott siblings, she offers up more clues about the circumstances of their parents’ deaths. The romance, albeit a rocky romance, between Dan and Pepper fill the pages with heat and sheer stubbornness. The suspense of two very different villains moves the book along quickly. Almost Like Being In Love is a page-turning emotional book that will leave you winded and wishing it was not over. I cannot wait to see what the final book has in store.
