Don't Breathe a Word by Christie Craig

New York Times bestselling author Christie Craig returns with her next heart-stopping romantic suspense about a woman on the run and the man eager to uncover her secrets – for readers of Kat Martin, Rebecca Zanetti, and Mary Burton!

Police detective Juan Acosta doesn't only carry scars on the outside. He's filled with guilt and anger ever since his undercover job led to the murder of those he loved the most. Now he's living for one thing: revenge. That is, until Juan meets his beautiful new neighbor.

Vicki Holloway prides herself on being capable and independent, but her life is turned upside down when her sister Sara is killed by an abusive ex. Fearing for the safety of her niece, Vicki and the little girl go into hiding... resurfacing in Texas with new identities.

Juan finds his once-frozen heart thawing around Vicki, but he knows she's hiding something. Juan needs answers, but Vicki isn't talking. She has to keep her secrets if she wants to keep Bell safe, which means resisting her growing feelings for the sexy, scarred man next door. But when Juan's quest for justice brings danger to her door, divulging the truth might be the only thing that keeps her alive.

Includes the bonus novella Hot Target by April Hunt!

Juan had it all and lost it in a tragic plot of murder. In the process of losing everything he came to love, he became hardened to everything and everyone around him. Despite his pain, he wants to help those who maybe cannot help themselves. Having been relegated to the cold case unit, Juan is great at tracking people down and finding their secrets.

Vicki is trying to figure out a way to keep herself and her daughter under the radar. Hiding from the man who murdered her sister, Vicki makes sure that she can defend herself. When she moves to Texas, she is excited that she found a job that she can excel at, not to mention her daughter can finally attend school again. But when she hears a noise the backyard, she doesn't hesitate to get the intruder. After all, she has to protect her daughter.

I really loved how Vicki and Juan met. She was a petite pistol who took down a huge guy who should know how to defend himself. Plus, the ribbing that he got from his fellow officers was great.

This was a fantastic suspense story. I really enjoyed watching the story unfold. It was a constant edge of your seat feeling, due to Vicki's backstory. I found myself cheering Juan and Vicki on, but at the same time, wondering if Vicki's past was going to cause issues too large to overcome. This will keep you entertained until the end and I hope more is to come in this series.
