He lives by the law.
She’s running for her life.
After forensic accountant Beth Greenwood uncovers a money-laundering scheme tying her company to the organization that murdered her mentor, she knows she needs to go into hiding. With ruthless killers in pursuit, she’s forced to rely on homeland security agent Corbin Ross’s protection—even as his investigation suggests Beth is complicit in embezzlement. Can their uneasy alliance develop into something deeper—and keep them alive?
In My Opinion
I’m always intrigued by authors who write in multiple genres, and with No Safe Place, Sherri Shackelford is stepping into the romantic suspense genre (from historical romance). And what a switch it is!
Beth Greenwood is a forensic accountant who is about to go on the lam once she turns evidence of money laundering in to the FBO. Corbin Ross has been keeping a suspicious eye on Beth the past couple of weeks and knows something is about to go down.
As the two of them escape an attack on Beth and go on the run, neither is ready to trust the other. But the continued attacks on Beth soon confirm someone is trying to shut her up permanently.
Shackelford maintains a perfect balance of intense action and personal moments between Corbin and Beth, making their building attraction natural and authentic.
While there were a couple things in the book that I found predictable, the plausible situations the characters find themselves in more than make up for it. Corbin and Beth are people of faith with an inner strength that makes them do the right thing no matter the personal cost which had me rooting for them from the get-go.
I hope to see more romantic suspense reads from Shackelford in the (near) future.
