The wedding is two weeks away
If they survive until then…
Following a fire at the New Journeys women’s shelter, Deputy Tanner Dempsey is on high alert, and his fiancée, Bree Daniels, fears that one of the shelter’s clients is being targeted. Outmanned and outgunned, Tanner and Bree must make a last stand for justice and unravel the twisted plot of a dangerous sociopath. Will it be “’til death do us part” before they can say “I do”?
Bree and Tanner are finally getting married…you know, if they can survive until the wedding!! They will Risk Everything to ensure they say “I Do”.
The focus in this story is not just on the wedding plans (which Bree hates because she is so anti-social), but also on the women’s shelter, New Journeys, and the troubles happening there. When Bree nearly dies, Tanner tries to figure out who would have wanted to set fire to the shelter, but not kill anyone. With a house full of abused women, there are no shortage of skeezy ex’s as suspects. Bree and Tanner have to figure out who has the motive, the means, and the opportunity-because it seems their suspect doesn’t have the opportunity. Because this is book four focused on Bree and Tanner, you really do feel their love for one another. I didn’t realize how invested I was in seeing them go through the various stages of their relationship since I usually only read stories that focus on one couple for one book. Bree and Tanner have 4 stories, but they are together in all of them, so you really see an organically budding relationship.
I also enjoyed seeing more of Noah! He is starting to get feelings for Marilyn-a single mom who has a very disturbed husband. Noah has been dealing with his own struggles and it was great to see him step back into the world.
If you enjoy a mystery, some tech genius stuff, a cop with a heart of gold, and a small town full of wonderful people, you will enjoy the entire Bree and Tanner series, and Risk everything is the icing on the (wedding) cake!
