Gentle on My Mind by Susan Fox, a Caribou Crossing romance, was sent to me as an Advance Uncorrected Print Proof in return for my honest review.
I always like stories like this. Brooke Kincaid has come a long way. She has battled bipolar disorder and alcoholism and has made a new life for herself in Caribou Crossing. She has made peace with her estranged son and his wife, who is expecting her first grandchild. Her life seems to be going along very well until an uninvited guest plows into her white picket fence and into her heart.
Jake Brannon, an undercover cop, is fleeing the men who shot him on his motorcycle. He blacks out and takes out Brooke’s fence. He coerces her into taking him in, nursing him back to health, while keeping his presence a secret from everyone. Jake can’t trust anyone in Caribou Crossing. He is on the trail of a murderer and drug lord. He and Brooke hatch a plan so that he can stay with her and keep his secret while investigating the citizens of Caribou Crossing. Their close proximity leads to something neither wants.
This novel has all the elements…romance, danger, and murder…that will make you want to keep reading. I recommend this book to all romance lovers.
