Appalachian Abduction by Debbie Herbert

Hello to all!

           Today i'm sharing with you a book that can be considered as part of a series while being a standalone as we see characters from Appalachian Prey that i reviewed earlier this year here so readers shouldn't lost.

I hope you are ready for more suspense romance

Description from goodreads :

 A small-town cop must protect a beautiful rogue undercover detective.

Trespassing, fleeing a peace officer…hell, she’d aimed a gun at his chest! Officer James Tedder can’t help but admire her fight. And undercover detective Charlotte Helms will never quit. She’s on a personal mission: rescue her best friend’s daughter…and bust the child-trafficking ring that lured her away. When they’re forced to become partners, James must trust Charlotte to have his back. But can he trust her with his heart?

My opinion:
          Lavender Mountains are really not a safe place to live as it seems. This book take place after " Appalachian Prey" and we see Liland and Harlan but this book focus on another couple Lilah's brother James (jimmy) and Charlotte so this one can really be read as a stand alone without any difficulty.

James is working under Harlan after being retired from the military but he still has some bad effect from his time in Afghanistan  and he does doubt himself...when he discover an intruder in his father's cabin he isn't letting go until he discover the real story of Charlotte and when he does he can't leave her alone.
I loved that he was loyal, he is determined but also a bit wild. He does his job well but we can see that it doesn't complete him yet. He is also resourceful and quite stubborn.
Charlotte also is really stubborn...she has a lead to find the missing daughter of her friend and she let nothing get in her way but doing so she also renounce to help she really need. When she is forced to trust James...she tries not to let her past dictate her reaction but it's not easy and she sure is paranoid. However, i do admire her determination.

Both have been hurt and learning to work together quite a bit like them against the world help them to heal bit by bit .

Now, the investigation is interesting, the action fast paced but i did prefer Appalachian prey. In this book we get less info about the setting, the people but really focus more on Charlotte and James past which is good but i kind of missing the  rural ambiance. Also Harlan was a bit strict and while that's normal  with his past he should have been more open minded in my opinion. he did well but not fast enough and not the right way so for those who have read the other story it can be disappointing but for new reader it should be a problem at all.

So all together it's a good romance suspense that works perfectly as standalone without cliffhanger .
