Christmas on the Run

GIVEAWAY
MCCOY, SHIRLEE
CHRISTMAS ON THE RUN

"Do what we tell you or your son will disappear..."

Master gemstone cutter Carly Rose Kelley will do anything ti keep her son safe...but with blackmailers insisting she forge priceless antique stones, she needs help. With Christmas days away, the desperate widow has only one hope -- the brother-in-law she never met. Hostage rescue specialist Dallas Morgan never knew about his nephew or his estranged late brother's wife. Now their lives are in his hands. But the sweet child and vulnerable woman remind Dallas of the family he once had and lost. And he can't afford distraction. Now that they're trapped in the sights of ruthless blackmailers, nowhere is safe...but Dallas won't let anyone stand in the way of him saving Carly and her little boy.

Mission Rescue -- No job is too dangerous for these fearless heroes

My Review:

There is such a desperate sense of urgency from the very first page that I think I held my breath through the whole read! Carly is in an impossible situation but she's a scrappy fighter and she's concocted a plan that just must save her son...if she can bring herself to hand the controls over to Dallas, a man she's never met. But she's done her research and he's definitely hero material. Trouble is Carly has trust issues when it comes to men and she second guesses involving Dallas at every turn. These two butt heads as they grapple for answers and dance around the unexpected attraction that arcs between them.

Fans of the Mission Rescue series will be happy to connect with some of the previous heroes -- particularly Chance and Boone who step in to provide some much needed backup. No worries if you haven't read the other books in this series (there are eight -- four of them Christmas stories) as each book is written as a standalone. It's just comforting to meet old faces in the midst of all the mayhem! Kinda made me feel relieved to know that Dallas and Carly weren't stuck facing these ruthless blackmailers all on their lonesome!

Heart palpitating action meets tentative romance in this blockbuster romantic suspense.

  2. You'd think my eyes would pop out with all the Love Inspired Christmas books I've read so far...but NO, I can't get enough...lol!

    Heart stopping action along with heart palpitations because of the handsome hero, that's my kind of read :-)

    And no, I haven't read any of this series, that's the beauty of LI, they are all stand alone!

    1. LOL -- you and me both. No I have an image of us walking around with eyeballs dangling from bouncy springs. Yes, it's great that their series books read well as standalones but this is a great series if you ever get a chance to catch up. Ha! Good luck, Trici.

  3. Good morning Kav and bestreads readers!

    I've long been a Shirlee McCoy fan, and you had me at blockbuster romantic suspense, but I have to admit my skin crawls when a child's life is in danger. I've read 5 of the 7 previous books in this series, so I love catching glimpses of team members.
    Thanks for the giveaway offer and happy Monday-ing!

    1. Happy Monday-ing to you too, Tracey. I've just come back from a good physio session so I'm feeling right spritely. And yes, the child in danger angle makes everything more nail-biting. Good luck, Tracey.

  4. I've heard of Shirlee McCoy, but have not yet tried her books. I love that you said it captivated you with a "desperate sense of urgency" from the first page! I have found other LIS books to be captivating also, so I'm looking forward to reading Christmas on the Run. Great cover, too! I love the snowy bridge with the footprints! lelandandbeckyATreaganDOTcom
