Years ago, Wes Corbett vowed not to get romantically involved again, fearing anyone close to him might be harmed by his brother William, a born criminal. Now, as he weathers the storm with Janet, their mutual attraction becomes clear. Can he keep that vow—even though he knows William is on the loose and may be headed directly for them?

When Janet and Jack’s relationship soured and he became abusive, Janet knows she has to leave before it’s too late. Leaving Jack, packing her car and going to her parents small cottage while they were on holiday Janet hopes the next month will give her some peace and time both to finish her next book and get the rest of her life sorted out. With a hurricane bearing down and two convicts escaped and on the loose, Janet has no idea just how crazy her life is about to come when she meets Wes, a stranger in the storm.

I really enjoyed this mystery story. I found Janet to be modern and relatable as a character. The double-whammy of both a hurricane and the escaped convicts felt a little over the top as a plot device, but adding in a twin-mix up with Wes and his convict twin, William, had me just disconnecting my brain and enjoying the story. I really liked the style and tone of the author’s voice and I was attached to Janet and curious as to how everything would sort itself out to her. Wes is a strong and honest hero who has found himself – due to his nefarious twin brother – embroiled in an ever-growing series of crazy events. While exciting and a little outrageous, I felt that ignoring the unreality of the situation was a small price to pay to see where it all led, and I’m very glad I stuck with it. This story has plenty of action and as the book progresses the pace gets faster and grows at a good clip, keeping the reader turning the pages to see what happens next.

While the romance between Janet and Wes simmers I was really pleased that the author allowed them both the time and space for their feelings and attraction to grow naturally. Readers who like a slow pace with their romance should find this is suitable. A number of complications arise that Janet and Wes have to overcome – Janet’s abusive ex, Wes’ convicted felon brother, not to mention a hurricane from Mother nature and all sorts of other issues – but watching Janet and Wes truly begin to care and feel connected to each other is a lovely aspect of the story and I was pleased the romance was present and this wasn’t purely a mystery/suspense novel.

With plenty of action and a fast pace once the plot really gets moving, this is an excellent mystery/suspense story with a strong plot and a bunch of interesting characters.
