Fugitive by Shirlee McCoy

Laney has come to sell the cabin her husband built and the home her parents own.  That's all.  She's going to sell and then she's going home to the life she established after her escape from her parents.  Her husband and father have died and it's time to start a new chapter in her life.

Harlequin and Net Galley let me download an ebook of this story for review (thank you).  It was published May 7th, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.  

It's snowing at the cabin and she gets the fire going.  Then someone knocks at the door.  Who would be out here in the middle of nowhere?  When she opens that door, the past and present collide:  Logan, the young man who gave her the money to escape her parents, is at the door in an orange jumpsuit with cuffed hands.  Someone has framed him, he's supposed to be going to jail, and now they have killed one cop and just barely missed him.  He needs help.

The rest of this story is full of action as they attempt to escape the mysterious killer.  It's a good thing Logan has cop friends with lots of resources.  I found the cop support and safe house premise a bit unbelievable but it's an exciting story.

Laney and Logan find they are still very good friends and a romance begins to grow between them.  They are both protecting their hearts but when you get busy protecting your life sometimes you forget that.

It was a quick read that I enjoyed.  This is part of the Heroes for Hire series; check them out at the bookstore, too.

Happy reading.
