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.
