Review of Journey's Edge by Dora Hiers


Today we have Dora Heirs and her new release Journey's Edge





Blurb:
A Routine Audit? Hardly.
Red flags—including some goon who's following her—raise McKinley Frasier's suspicions that numbers don't add up at the insurance firm. When someone tries to snatch McKinley's daughter from school, she turns to police officer and ex-fiance, Renner Crossman—the cop who walked out on her a month before their wedding. But Renner's not the same guy who broke her heart ten years ago. He calls himself a "new man." She trusts the new Renner with her daughter's safety...but what about her heart?


Meet Renner Crossman

Hey. Renner Crossman here. The new and improved version, not the old Renner, the jerk who seduced women, then dumped them. Walls painted white by God’s grace, I’m determined to set things right with people I’ve wronged in my life. Beginning with Kinny.

Beautiful, wholesome, pristine Kinny. Like springtime opening her arms wide after a long, harsh winter; new blossoms popping out to embrace the sun. Unspoiled, if you catch my drift, until a month before our wedding date.

So, I called Kinny a few days ago to apologize, right? Got her voice mail and left her a message asking to meet in person. I could have called that number a hundred times just to hear that sweet voice. Yeah, I’m so not over her.

But, I did the right thing breaking up with her, even if it was lousy timing. She blamed me for the deaths of her mother and brother. Well, not me, but the badge in general.
Ten years later, I’m still a cop, just a different kind: a Deputy U.S. Marshal. That won’t matter to Kinny, though. I still carry a gun and a badge. So, it’s probably best that she blew me off and didn’t show up tonight. With an early morning appointment for a job transfer to Charlotte and plans to hunt down a house near my friends, my plate’s mighty full.

When Kinny stumbles into my room after midnight, a thug hot on her heels, what choice do I have but to protect her? Will she still see me as the “old” Renner? Or can I model the “new man” in Christ?

Review:
5 stars
What is there not to like in this thrilling story of love the second time around. Stuffed full of really bad guys and heart stopping moments, Ms. Hiers takes you on a whirlwind journey which starts on the very first page with McKinley on the run from someone who didn't like her audit. Bumping into Renner was expected, but she hadn't wanted to do it like this, not when she and her daughter were in danger.

The hockey game scenes were so vivid that it seemed I was there - and I only have the odd movie scene to go on as I have never seen a hockey game in my life. As a mum, my heart was in my mouth every time Tessa was threatened. Mixed in with the action, lies a heart-warming romance, which leaves the main characters in your mind after the last page is turned. Like an onion this book is one layer after another. A breathless whirlwind that leaves you doubting the HAE you know is coming.
