You Can't Hide by Wendy Davy

This little novel is a quick and satisfying read. Carla has gotten herself into trouble by making a secret trip to Colombia to see her twin brother Jonas. She wanted to surprise him on his mission trip. But his was no church mission trip. Carla came close to seeing a drug lord murder a rival and now she is in danger.

Back in the United States, Jonas engages his friend, Gage, to protect Carla. Gage had been wounded on the recent undercover operation and was recuperating on Cedar Island on the Eastern Shore.

The relationship between Carla and Gage starts out with barbs but soon develops into attraction. The entire situation gets serious as Jonas is himself captured back in Colombia and the drug lord finds out Carla's identity.

This is a short novel. Davy has not padded the book with unneeded words. I would liked a little more description, or perhaps a line drawn map of the island, however. I had trouble at the very end picturing the action. And the romance was quick, very quick. That aspect of the novel could have been enhanced, with Carla and Gage working through some issues.
