She left her painful past behind.
Poppy Larsen is finally free. She moved to Crimson Point to make a new life for herself, full of bright possibilities. A whole new world awaits her, if she can find the courage to trust again—even her gorgeous neighbor, the town sheriff. But darkness lurks in the picturesque Oregon Coast town, concealing a deadly threat that’s closer than she ever imagined.
Now a killer is watching her from the shadows.
Sheriff Noah Buchanan can’t help but be intrigued by his new neighbor. She’s hard working, sexy as hell, and unlike most of the women in town, she hasn’t thrown herself at him. After it becomes clear that she plans to put down roots here, he finds himself falling more and more for Poppy and her big heart. When someone from her past tries to hurt her, it triggers all his protective instincts. But the real danger is hiding in plain sight. When the unthinkable happens, Noah is thrust into a race against time to save her before it’s too late.
This is my first foray into the world created by Kaylea Cross – and even though this si the second book in the Crimson Point, it can still be read as a standalone.
Noah Buchanan is the sheriff in town and definitely a serial dater – though his world turns topsy turvy; when the newest citizen in town turns up to be his neighbor. Poppy Larsen, is on the other hand, is now on her new start – shifting to a new town to leave behind the dregs of her old one. She isn’t looking for a relationship nor is she in town to be appreciating the manly physique of the town’s sheriff.
The romance between Noah and Poppy is a gentle, sweet romance that is more focused on the emotional connection between them rather than the physical – though theirs is a physical relationship, but their relationship is easy to predict and sweet to read.
It’s the suspense, though that had me invested in the book – while the suspense is still partly predictable, it’s still an offset for a sweet romance – and a book that ends up more of a comfort romance than one that grips you by the throat and doesn’t let you go.
