Disgusted and unnerved by her lecherous boss's aggressive behavior, chef Peyton Lockhart flees into a Minnesota blizzard, barely avoids being run off the road by her ex-boss's hit man, and heads home to Texas to consider her options. There, she runs into her childhood hero, the Olympic medalist who once saved her from drowning, lawyer and FBI agent Finn MacBain, who is just as appealing and protective as ever. When he learns the story behind the bullet holes in Peyton's car, Finn knows it means more trouble. But Peyton and her sisters move to Florida to run Bishop's Cove, their uncle's island resort, and where she gets a new bullet hole in her car. VERDICT A swift pace, electric sexual tension, an abundance of fascinating characters, and an engaging plot with plenty of action and a touch of humor make this a perfect summertime page-turner.
