Julia Kelley has decided to give up on love after two failed attempts. The first for a man who left her when she became pregnant, the second to a man who ended up not being who he claimed to be when she sees his picture on the wall of the Post Office on the FBI's most wanted list. After witnessing his murder and fearing for her own life, she goes into hiding with her 8 year old daughter. While on the run, her car breaks down in the midst of a storm in the middle of nowhere. Up rides her knight in shining armor, Carson Webber. Carson is a widow with an 8 year old daughter also, but he has also given up on love after losing his wife. That is until he sees a dripping wet Julia Kelley on the side of the road.
Julia and her daughter ends up staying at Carl's sister B&B where she starts to feel very comfortable and eventually lets down her guard, to both her heart and her safety. The relationship between the two little girls is one that had me smiling at the innocence of childhood. Once they made up their minds that they were going to be sisters, Julia and Carson had no choice but to Surrender to Love.
A secondary storyline consists of FBI agents Tony Iaanelli, Paul Regis his superior and Paul's daughter Michelle. Tony and Michelle are engaged and kept their romance hidden for two years from Paul. Tony thinks Paul disapproves of the relationship because he is black, and he eventually confronts Paul about it. It was good story in which race ended up not being the issue.
Romance and suspense with a few twists makes Surrender to Love a very good read and I am sure that you won't be disappointed.
