ABOUT THE BOOK
Paige Rogers survived every CIA operative’s worst nightmare.
A covert mission gone terribly wrong.
A betrayal by the one man she thought she could trust.
Forced to disappear to protect the lives of her loved ones, Paige has spent the last several years building a quiet life as a small-town librarian. But the day a stranger comes to town and starts asking questions, Paige knows her careful existence has been shattered.
He is coming after her again. And this time, he intends to silence her for good...
Paige Rogers is a former CIA agent who lost all she treasured seven years ago when her entire team was killed in a covert mission. She blames their leader—Daniel Keary—whom Paige believes betrayed them. Disillusioned and afraid for her life, she disappeared and started a new life as a librarian in small town Split Creek, Oklahoma.
But her growing relationship with high school football coach Miles Laird and the political ambitions of her former boss threaten to unmask her. When Keary announces his candidacy for governor of her state, he comes after Paige to ensure that she won't ruin his bid for office by revealing his past misdeeds. He threatens everything she holds dear, and Paige must choose between the life of hiding that has become her refuge . . . or risking everything in one last, desperate attempt to right old wrongs.

Watch the Book Trailer:
I'm not sure which Paige I loved the best - the quiet, reclusive librarian in Split Creek, Oklahoma or the underlying CIA operative that is always a part of her. On the surface she is the well loved librarian who provides home baked treats for the weekly book club. She's living a quiet life and trying her hardest not to fall under the spell of the high school football coach who is falling in love with her. Since she is living a double life Paige is afraid to get too close to anybody.
She is also constantly struggling with the fact that she is now a Christian and trying to figure out how her former CIA life fits in with that. The nature of that life requires her to live a lie now and she's not so sure how God feels about that.
Add in the man that betrayed her in the past and is now running for governor of the state - and is on the fast track to winning the popular vote. Everybody loves him, but Paige knows what he is really like.
I really, really enjoyed this book. It's fast paced and has some really great characters. There's enough twists and turns to cause me to do the ever popular "ok I'll read just one more chapter before bed" several times.
And I'm happy to see that this is book 1 of a new Call of Duty series. The next book is due out I believe in spring of next year and I'm looking forward to reading it.
