JJ and Cameron two people who are both hiding something in this suspense novel by Brenda Huber. JJ just wants to have a normal life without fear of her own shadow. Now Cameron is a sheriff who is trying so hard to hide his real identity yet protecting a whole town from a killer. When these two get together it is beyond sexual combustion for these two are in their own world together. I loved that Brenda created such a killer like the Apostle it is so imaginative and clever the way she created him. These two together against him is definitely worth reading. Brenda did a great job of the suspense for each person in the book is a suspect but the real Apostle will blow you away. Not only have that but once JJ finds out about Cameron it is all going lost every way. Definitely a great book by Brenda and can’t wait for more.
