Title: Innocence and Deception (Men of Valour, Women of Steel #3)
Author: Toni Bolton
Who is this woman he fished out of the sea?
What secrets does she hold?
FBI agent Mike Collins fishes a woman out of the sea. She is a convict who has escaped custody. She claims to be suffering amnesia. She leaves the hospital and he follows her to where her daughter is living. She has not seen the child since her birth in prison. Collins is puzzled. A model prisoner, why did she escape when her parole hearing was so close? He finds others are searching for her. What secrets does she hold? Romance, intrigue, suspense and crime keep the reader engrossed in this fast-paced heart-warming novel.
When Agent Collins pulls a woman out of the water, he doesn’t know what to think. How did she end up there? Who killed the officer who was found with her? Is she dangerous, or is she in danger? The only one who could answer is Charlotte, and she has no memory of what happened.
I really enjoyed the character development throughout this story. Charlotte and Collins’ relationship really blossomed the more they depended on one another. One Charlotte went in search of her daughter, the story really picked up, and the suspense was great near the end of the book. This is a wonderful read that can be picked up as a standalone or enjoyed in its series.
