Nate Wolfe places the Lost and Found, Inc. team’s Christmas reunion on hold when a Navy buddy needs help.

Clay Hudson and Carol Penny have loved each other since high school. Time and circumstances placed them far apart over the years but now they're back home, during the worst cold weather Eden Rock, Texas has ever experienced. Clay’s a successful vet and Carol’s just been fired from her TV anchor job. She’s come home to help her sister sell the family horse ranch, but when she discovers the buyer is actually a Mexican drug lord, she changes her mind.

The cartel won’t take no for an answer, so Clay steps in to protect Carol, and calls in his old friend from Lost and Found, Inc. The team will fight freezing weather, a freak snowstorm, and a ruthless killer to discover why this piece of property so important. Can the Lost and Found team unravel this puzzle in time to be home for the holiday? Will Carol and Clay learn old love can be new again?

 

 
TV news anchor Carol Penny returns to her family’s ranch in Eden Rock, Texas after losing her job. Though they’ve found a buyer, she and her sister have second thoughts after finding out some unsettling information about the buyer. Carol’s ex-boyfriend, Clay Hudson has also recently moved back home and they find that their feelings for each haven’t changed.

 
We get to revisit the Lost and Found, Inc. team when Clay contacts Nate Wolfe, his former Navy buddy, for help because of his well-founded suspicions about the ranch buyer. I enjoyed the suspense element that is the trademark of this series and the heightened tension that builds steadily throughout the story. The rekindled romance between Carol and Clay was sweet but steamy.

 
It was nice getting updates about the team members and their new families and relationships. This short story covered a lot of ground was just enough to whet my appetite as I wait for the next book in the series, nicely wrapped in a lovely holiday bow.

About Jerrie Alexander

A student of creative writing in her youth, Jerrie set aside her passion when life presented her with a John Wayne husband, and two wonderful children. A career in logistics offered her the opportunity to travel to many beautiful locations in America, and she revisits them in her romantic suspense novels.

But the characters went with her, talked to her, and insisted she share their dark, sexy stories with others. She writes alpha males and kick-ass women who weave their way through death and fear to emerge stronger because of, and on occasion in spite of, their love for each other. She likes to torture people, make them suffer, and if they’re strong enough, they live happily ever after.

Jerrie is the author of THE GREEN-EYED DOLL, THE LAST EXECUTION, short story, SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME and the Lost and Found, Inc. series. She lives in Texas, loves sunshine, children’s laughter, sugar (human and granulated), and researching for her heroes and heroines.

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
