Review: Christmas at Twilight (Twilight, Texas #5) by Lori Wilde

It's Christmas in Twilight, Texas. The Cookie Club is baking, the town is decorated, and Delta Force Operator "Hutch" Hutchinson has finally, reluctantly, returned home . . .

. . . only to get pepper sprayed by the delicious- looking stranger who's taken over his house. She says her name is Jane, and she immediately sets down ground rules. Top priority: no touching. For Hutch that isn't easy—he was wounded in action, but one part is still working very well.

Then Hutch learns the truth. Jane harbors a frightening secret—she's really Meredith Sommers, on the run from a dangerous ex-husband and desperately in need of the safety Hutch can provide. In that moment, he vows he'd do anything in his power to protect her. And as Christmas approaches, they discover that their love can conquer the past and overcome any obstacle—but what price will they pay?

Delta Force Operator, “Hutch” Hutchinson returns home to find his sister is MIA and a young woman and her son is living in his house and they have a frightening secret and he vows to do whatever it takes to protect them in this riveting romantic holiday suspense.

This steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers hovering on the edge of anticipation with lots of suspense and romance. The author captures the imagination with well written scenes and details and the well orchestrated suspense draws the reader deeper into the story. The characters are strong, compelling and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and the friendly small town setting adds depth and a wonderful sense of community to the story.

The reader can’t help but get caught up in this emotionally gripping tale of two people who manage to reach for a happy ever after and work through some pretty heavy duty heartache and pain and that miracles do happen although sometimes there is a price to be paid.  The attraction between Meredith and Hutch burns hot from every page but the slowly progressing romance is what captures the interest because it is one of hope and a strong forever kind of love.

Spine tingling tension builds throughout the story as suspense builds in several different directions throughout and the conclusion to the story is exciting and believable though a bit sad.  Twilight, Texas and its charismatic characters have certainly caught my attention and since I really enjoyed and I was completely caught up in this story from the very beginning, I am adding the other books to my TBR list.
