Edge of Sight
By Roxanne St. Claire
About The Book:
The killer she can't escape . . . The heartbreak she can't forget . . . The one man who can stop them both. When Samantha Fairchild witnesses a murder in the wine cellar of the restaurant where she works, the Harvard-bound law student becomes the next target of a professional assassin. Desperate for protection the authorities won't provide, Sam seeks help from Vivi Angelino, an investigative reporter who recruits her brother, Zach, to protect Samantha. A Special Forces vet with the scars to prove he's equally fearless and flawed, Zach takes the job, despite the fact that he and Sam once shared a lusty interlude that ended when he left for war and disappeared from her life.
I think the heroine steals the show in this story. Sam is a loving, strong, courageous lady and shows that by her decisions and actions, and her willingness to take a lot of unnecessary stuff from Zach, the hero. She's the reason I kept reading this book, because the author took the time to delve deeply into this female character, making her a sympathetic character, one I wanted to see through to the end. On the other hand, I didn't care for Zach at all. I think he could have 'gotten over himself' a lot earlier and explained some of his actions to Sam. He just carried out the strong, silent type persona far too long. I give this THREE STARS
