From the back of the book:
When Blake Michaels's cover as a local cop is blown and a corrupt officer attempts to kill him, he's forced to go on the run. Under his protection is Holly Mathis, also a target for what she may know about her late husband's investigation into corruption on the police force. Blake can't complete his assignment without help from the beautiful widow, but getting close to a woman again is out of the question. Trapped inside the town limits by police barricades, Blake won't surrender the mission until he finds the source of the deadly drug ring that brought him here. But as he circles closer to his target, can he get his man—and save his woman—without sacrificing his own life?
My thoughts on Virginia Vaughan:
She is such a down to earth woman whose faith rings loud and true through the pages of her books. Virginia seems to always have a smile for everyone, an encouraging word for every troubled heart and a friendship for those she holds dear. She is a talented writer. I always feel like, "Wow, there is a new layer to Virginia and her writing that I did not know." I am so honored to review this book for her. You can tell writing and creating characters as well as storylines runs in Virginia's blood. Its her passion and it shows.
My thoughts on Mission Undercover:
This book is the 5th book in her Rangers Under Fire series. I haven't read all the books in the series but this can be read stand alone. Virginia has a very dramatic voice to her stories and characters that command your attention from the get go. I love that. I would rather a book have me engulfed into the story line rather than feeling "Blah.....can I skip ahead?" Virginia creates loveable characters and then also ones that you hate with everything you have in you. I feel this is the way some people are about things in life or people really.
As soon as I read Mason's character, the perfect guy came to mind. Many of you might know him as the crooked cop from Pretty Little Liars but he is none other than Detective Darren Wilden. I believe Bryce Johnson would be pretty for the part. He seems to have the role down and with such believeablity.
I loved how Blake and Holly had to learn to rely on each other to get out alive. There is something about having to learn to survive that can really make you appreciate someone. This story has such action, little spots of romance that peek out throughout the pages, and alot of holding on to your seat hoping the bad guy is caught.
I rate this book a 5 stars out of 5 stars.
