HOSTAGE MIDWIFE (4) by Cassie Miles: Midwife Kelly Evans has retreated to Colorado to help out a friend and regroup after a nasty divorce. She never expects to be on the scene when businessman Nick Spencer’s uncle is found dead. Nick can’t believe the police’s verdict of a suicide, especially after a mob-connected loan shark tells him about the private deal he made with the family to get his hands on the family gold. Then, Kelly picks up a stalker as she and Nick begin to uncover the secrets behind a murder. Miles skillfully snares readers in her trap, then snaps everything taut during a climactic hostage situation with an office full of pregnant women, armed intruders and enough explosives to put a hole in the entire state.
