About the Book:

WITNESS IN JEOPARDY 
It's a typical day at Rachael Long's day-care center—until a masked gunman tries to abduct one of the children in her charge. First response commander Jake Marsh manages to defuse the situation before anyone is harmed…but not before Rachael unmasks the would-be kidnapper. Now Jake must lead a manhunt and protect Rachael from the criminal who's turned his focus on her. But the case is reawakening painful memories for Jake, and Rachael's treating emotional wounds of her own. And with danger mounting as Christmas nears, they must learn to let go of the past in order to outwit a killer…and find the peace that's always eluded them both.


My Thoughts:

As a mom, nothing terrifies me more than the thought of someone taking my child.  Susan Sleeman taps into that fear in her newest novel, "Christmas Conspiracy", and she does it very, very well (you have been warned!).

Rachael takes her responsibility as a day-care provider very seriously, treating the children under her care as she would one of her own.  When someone attempts an abduction, she fights back and ends up ripping off the kidnapper's mask, thus jeopardizing both the child and herself.

Jake Marsh is a true hero, with secrets of his own.  As he works to keep Rachael safe, sparks of romance begin to fly.  Honestly, it's the mystery that drew me in.  Susan writes with rich detail and authentic dialogue, and she gets me hooked every time.

The lovey-dovey part is just a bonus!

I enjoyed "Christmas Conspiracy", and I think you will as well.  I'm giving it my 'One To Watch' award, and here's the list of Susan's 'First Responders' series in order (I'm one of the weird ones that MUST read books in order!):
