Emma Sharpe is missing her new boyfriend, Colin Donovan. They are both agents with the FBI and on the same specialized team. However their individual jobs are very different. Emma knows that Colin’s job takes him away without contact but it’s been too long without word and she is getting worried about him. News that a missing and spectacular art collection might be headed to her town, grabs Emma’s attention. After all, her background is in art and art investigation and she also has a personal connection to both this collection and the people surrounding it.
Colin Donovan knows that his cover has been blown wide open and this might be his last job. When he finds a way to get away from the men who have decided to kill him rather then go for the merchandise they believe he has, Colin grabs it. Safe and finding out about what has been going on with his group, Colin is surprised to find out that Emma has a connection to the Russians that might have something to do with his cover mission. Trust is hard for Colin to give and while he is beginning to love Emma this turn of events makes him wonder if he can trust her.
Emma and Colin continue their unusual relationship while being surrounded by the mystery of why Emma’s small town of Heron’s Cove is suddenly the vacation spot for Russian’s – especially ones who have an active interest in a very valuable art collection that has suddenly reappeared after being reported as missing. Both Emma’s and Colin’s backgrounds, families and jobs make their budding love a journey that must be traveled carefully. As Emma becomes more involved with the events going on in her town, danger seems to be hunting not only Emma and Colin but also those close to them. Hunting for the answers on who is out to re-steal the art collection might also help Emma and Colin continue to learn more about each other and their love while ending the danger that seems to be stalking them. The question is will they find the final answers in time to save those they love and each other?
The FBI and love doesn’t always go hand-in-hand, but these two agents are willing to fight for their future in Heron’s Cove. Emma and Colin are back and this time on the same FBI team. I knew that the relationship between Emma and Colin wouldn’t be easy and this next adventure proved that fact. Not only are Emma and Colin trying to find that level of trust and knowledge that only lovers have with each other, but they are also involved with the recovery of an art collection that seems to have danger traveling with it. I loved seeing Colin and Emma juggle and flounder a bit while trying to find the path that would lead them into the future together. I knew that these two determined agents would find a way to have what they wanted no matter what and they proved me correct. I enjoyed the multilevel plot that had me wondering just what would pop out at me as I turned each page. Heron’s Cove is the perfect collection of suspense, danger, family and love. What more could you ask for in a great romantic suspense – for me absolutely nothing!
