Seeking excitement and an escape from bad memories, Angie Grant becomes an agent with the Canadian witness protection program. The next thing she knows, she's fleeing for her life, with a little girl in her protection and nowhere to turn but Camp Hope.

Unable to trust even her own agency, Angie hides out in her childhood house next to the camp. When old friend Sergeant Rick Mercer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police finds her and the child, buried feelings rekindle.

Threats and violent intruders converge from all sides. Angie's estranged father shows up, and danger escalates threatening their lives, their jobs and their future.

Action is served up in abundance in this third book in the Camp Hope series. But the characters' willful lack of communication, even when they have opportunities, creates some frustrations with the plot. (May, 280 pp., $10.99)
