Maddie is our main character in this book. Her story starts out by having to go back to her home town for her aunt's funeral. When she has a to call the ambulance for a medical incident, she is aided by her lost love, Joze an EMT technician. Both are not very happy to see each other, but they end up working together to solve the mystery of Maddie being stalked. During this time, can they get over their past and become a couple again? Can both survive a dangerous stalker out there and how does her deceased Aunt have to do with all this?
I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a book that is suspenseful and light romance together. It was a page turner while trying to figure out who the stalker was. The relationship with Maddie and Joze was sometimes not feeling like a real relationship, but that is the fun of reading a book like this, it let's you take your imagination to how they are. Overall it was a good read.

More from Erin
Books are powerful. Whole other worlds can unfold in a few well-stated sentences. There’s nothing like that feeling a reader gets when the perfect book is open on their lap and it pulls them in on the first page. It’s like a gift. Sometimes they make us rethink long held ideas. At times they mirror what we’re going through. And sometimes they remind us of areas in our lives we haven’t worked on.
But not every book is for every person. Sometimes it’s not the best seller that struck the right cord, or the book everyone’s reading, it’s the one you stumbled upon on a special or heard of from a friend. It’s a God-ordained tool to show us His ways and plans.
As Christian writers, the power to transform is even more in our hands. We have the ability to show how great our God is and how he works in the most unusual ways at times. We use our gift to do more than only entertain, we want to make Him more real to our readers. We want to show them how to grow and change as our characters do. And it’s amazing that we can use fiction to do so.
Next time you pick up a book, see if you can find the message hidden in the character’s struggles. Maybe God used a writer to put it there just for you to learn.
