In the book

…and someone wants to make sure Amber Talbot never reveals it. When she becomes the target of a car bomb and a home invasion, she gets the message loud and clear. If she tells anyone her secret, she will die. The person charged with protecting her is police detective Patrick Wiley—the fiancé she walked away from but never forgot. The same man she never wanted to tell about the attack that left her for dead. Back then Patrick couldn't save her. Now he must. Because the attacker has returned to finish what he started. Except this time he's got them both in his sights.

Nourish the Soul - Annslee talks about her favorite Bible verse

"I have told you these things, so that in me you will have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But, take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
This was a verse that was part of my devotional on 9/11 after the attacks on our country. It was a heartbreaking day for all Americans and very personal to our family as my husband is an airline pilot.  There was so much uncertainty that day, but God gave me this verse and a peace that truly was beyond understanding. I have cherished this verse since.

Thank you for sharing

¼ teas. Salt      1 cup butter, softened

This book sounds intense. I'm intrigued already.

It is always good to see intense mystery that can hold a reader's attention and a little bit of prior or current character romance never hurts the story. Keep it up for your many readers.
