I am thrilled to share my review of an intense romantic suspense set in the beautiful area of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the second installment in the Uncommon Justice series, Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard!
about the book
Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard
At the advice of her therapist, homicide survivor Harper Reynolds has traded her job as a crime scene photographer for a more peaceful life taking photographs of the natural world. But her hopes for a life surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors are dashed when she inadvertently captures a murder being committed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She flees the scene in fear—and loses the camera.
Former Green Beret Heath McKade is a reserve deputy in an understaffed county who has been called in to protect Harper, a childhood friend he is surprised to see back in the area. When Harper learns that the sheriff’s department can’t find any evidence of the murder she witnessed, she is determined to do what she can to see that justice is done. What neither Harper nor Heath could know is how many explosive secrets from the past will be exposed—or how deeply they will fall for each other.
In this suspenseful page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps you on the edge of your seat as you discover that uncommon justice lies just on the other side of fear.
From the first page, Always Look Twice hits the ground running with pulse-pounding, heart-melting romantic suspense with substance! Yes, the danger and action held my attention but I was also captivated by the authenticity and vulnerability of the characters and the raw honesty of their relationship.
Harper is a fighter. She has a fierce determination to seek truth and refuses to let anything hold her back. Harper’s relatable struggles and inspiring successes make her backstory especially encouraging and challenging in a positive way.
Heath is a protector. He’s way too hard on himself and carries burdens that were never his to bear. Like Harper, Heath is one of the walking wounded, a survivor who needs healing at the emotional and spiritual levels.
The childhood friends/second-chance romance trope is one of my favorites! Goddard exceeded my high expectations in the attraction department yet never missed a beat in the suspenseful pacing of the story. Throw in the magnificent setting and I didn’t want this story to end! I highly recommend this series and eagerly anticipate the next installment of Uncommon Justice!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
