Series: Emergency Responders #4

Christmas Vendetta is the fourth novel in Valerie Hansen’s Emergency Responders series. Though, if I’m being honest here, I have not had the fortune of reading the first three novels. However! I had no problem hopping right in here and enjoying every minute of this read.
The moment Sandy Lynn Forrester hears about the attack, she knows it had been meant for her. Over the holiday, her roommate attacked, and it’s clear to Sandy Lynn that this was a case of mistaken identity.
Yet nobody will believe Sandy Lynn when she warns of the attacker’s identity. Well, almost nobody will. Her old flame is willing to listen, which is fortunate, given that he is an ex-officer. Will he have what it takes to stop this situation from getting worse?
If you’re looking for a romantic holiday read that has a heavy dose of suspense, then Christmas Vendetta is the book for you. I would bet that the entire series (Emergency Responders) will be precisely what you’re looking for.
It has been a while since I read a book that checked off both suspense and inspirational read, let alone one with romantic elements. It made for a completely different read for me, and I appreciated the change of pace!
Overall, the story is very easy to get into, as Sandy Lynn’s backstory is both compelling and straightforward (if only the authorities within the novel believed that!). Despite the tenser moments that come from suspense, this straightforward nature made for a surprisingly relaxing read. Though naturally, the romance helped to ease out all remaining tension.
Thanks to Harlequin Tours and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
