This book took me a little while to get into-the story started off a bit disjointed and slow-and I almost stopped reading but then I read a review that said it got good about 80 pages in. So I decided to read that far and thankfully the reviewer was right and the story did pick up enough that I was able to not only finish the book but also enjoy it.
The author did a great job of keeping me guessing throughout the story as to who could be trusted and who couldn't. And after the initial slowness I was caught up in the plot and kept turning pages to see what would happen next.
All of the characters were pretty great from Laurel and Daniel to Abby and Earl, and I enjoyed watching their stories play out. I especially loved the enduring love that Abby and Earl shared. Laurel and Daniel's relationship didn't always make sense/flow right but in the end it all worked out.
In short this was an entertaining romantic suspense!

FBI Agent Laurel Evertson’s investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to Morton Wilmington, a felon she arrested five years ago on her first undercover assignment. That case has haunted her since, and though she’s vowed to forget Wilmington—and what she sacrificed to put him away—he is now her best lead. Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer’s next targets, and he’ll do anything to protect his family—even force interagency cooperation. But he’s quickly drawn to Laurel’s empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon. As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington’s claims of redemption, or if he’s leading them straight into a double cross.
