Northern Border Patrol: Keeping the US-Canadian border safe
My review: Murder Under the Mistletoe by Terri Reed (Northern Border Patrol)
Good clean suspense romance. Plenty of drama, good characters and some violence.
I would have loved to see the Christmas Tree farm and village. It sounds like a beautiful setting. In Idaho
Heather Larson-Randall is a widow and moved her son Colin back to the family tree farm after the death of her brotherSeth from a drug overdose. Heather gets a phone call telling her to take her son away her brother death was not what it looked like.
Tyler Griffin is a DEA Agent on a joint task force. After using a key to go into the house he thought was empty he was hit over the head with a heavy fry pan. His cover is now blown. He tells Heather that her brother was working with the DEA and had written down what he observed about drugs being used through the farm to Canada.
Heather decides to claim Tyler as a business partner to help her manage the farm. His two partners are hired on too. Tyler is now assigned to keep her and her son safe and find how the drugs are smuggled out.
I really liked watching the characters together. I did figure out early who the one bad guy was.
I liked the way Tyler and Heather worked at having faith in hard times. It was not easy though.
I enjoy reading books by Terri Reed and will continue looking forward to reading more books by her.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin and in return I agreed to give a honest review of Murder Under the Mistletoe.
