On Sale: November 10, 2009
Featuring: Lolly Helton; Gabriel McQueen
Add to Wish List
Gabriel McQueen has only just arrived home on holiday leave
from the service when his county-sheriff father sends him
back out again with new marching orders. A brewing ice
storm, and a distant neighbor who’s fallen out of contact,
have the local lawman concerned. So he enlists Gabriel to
make the long haul to the middle of nowhere, and make sure
Lolly Helton is safe and sound. It’s a trip the younger
McQueen would rather not make given the bitter winter
weather–and the icy conditions that have always existed
between him and Lolly.
But there’s no talking back when your dad is the town’s top
cop. And there’s no turning back when night falls just as
Gabriel arrives–and discovers that the weather outside
isn’t the only thing that’s frightful. Spotting strangers
in Lolly’s home–one of them packing a weapon–is all it
takes to kick Gabriel into combat mode. And his stealth
training is all he needs to extract Lolly from the house
without alerting her captors. But when the escape is
discovered, the heat–and the hunt–are on. And the winter
woods are nowhere to be once the ice storm touches down,
dropping trees, blocking roads, and trapping the fleeing
pair in the freezing dark.

Sounds wonderful. Just the book to be reading in this frozen weather in ohio.
Can't wait to start reading it.
