Highland Falls, Book 3
From the publisher:
Fall in love with the latest Highland Falls romance about a single mom-to-be’s surprise delivery and the undercover FBI agent who rescues her and her heart in the small town of Highland Falls.
Single mom-to-be Sadie Gray will do anything to find her younger brother before the law catches up with him. Even if it means returning home to the small town of Highland Falls with a baby due any moment. But when that moment comes sooner than expected, and Sadie finds herself stranded on the top of a mountain—in labor–she couldn’t be more grateful for the park ranger who finds her and helps deliver her daughter safely. Soon they’ve formed a tight friendship, and while he may be hinting at more, Sadie isn’t planning to stick around after she finds her brother.
FBI agent Chase Roberts wasn’t looking for love when he agreed to go undercover as a park ranger to find an on-the-run informant. But he can’t help being drawn to beautiful, warm-hearted Sadie and her sweet baby daughter. He’s always longed to put down roots and start a family. But how can he hope to keep Sadie’s trust when she finds out that his job is to arrest the brother she’s been looking for?
This is another sweet romance in the Highland Falls series. I’ve read the second book but somehow missed the first (again) but I found it on my Kindle and moved it up on the to-be-read list.
This book was more romantic suspense than just a romance, but it worked. I had a harder time with the love-at-first-sight aspect of the story, but I went with it anyway. Sadie is pregnant, but the baby daddy, Drew, is a real prize. He disappears, he maxed out Sadie’s credit cards, and he isn’t interested in being a father. So when Sadie’s brother gets into serious trouble with a gang and with the police, she moves home to try and help out.
The baby comes a little early, and luckily Chase and his partner are in the area. Both men are undercover, but they manage to deliver the baby before disappearing. Chase just falls in love with the baby and Sadie, and she names the baby after him but is heartbroken when he disappears. She is struggling with the baby and worried about her brother and her grandmother, but then he returns with the bad news that he is undercover. But he is so helpful and that attraction is still there, stronger than ever.
There are lots of twists in the story but the romance comes through in the end. I enjoyed this and I’m looking forward to more in this series.
