The conclusion to the Hideaway Wedding series is a fitting, warmhearted finale. As fans know, the Cole men have been wagering on their children’s marital plans for years. David’s son, Jason, is the only holdout, but his time has come. There is even an exciting mystery subplot chock full of undercover activities. This one’s a page-turner with a very satisfying conclusion.
Jason is more than satisfied with his single status, even though his sister and cousin are happily going down the aisle on New Year’s Eve. That is, until he meets Greer Evans, an undercover ATF agent who is on assignment in Oregon, where Jason’s music studio is based. Her job is to gather information about illegal gun sales, while posing as a waitress. Once Jason sees Greer and then hears her powerful voice, he’s hooked. But Jason has no idea that Greer is an agent, and danger looms that could spell an end to both their careers — and their lives. (KIMANI ARABESQUE, Jul., 374 pp., $6.99)
