This novel starts with an exciting scene. Abrams then adds enough back story we know someone is after Amy. There is a good deal of suspense as the novel continues but the emphasis in Abrams' writing style is on character relationships. Important scenes are permeated with character thought and relationship interaction. There is much character rumination after each event.
I found Amy a difficult character to like. She repeatedly acted in such a way that got her into a suspenseful situation. She even self describes her actions as stupid. (2096/2979) The same happens when Keith and Amy act together. After being shot at one more time, Keith admits he hadn't been thinking and they'd blown it. (1285/2979) I prefer suspense because the villain outwits the heroes, not because the heroes do stupid things. Except for that, I liked this novel.
This is a romantic suspense for readers who like an emphasis on character thought and interaction and don't mind the heroes repeatedly getting themselves into trouble through their own actions.
My rating: 4/5 stars.

#Authorproblems That’s what the excitement around Keith Young was…a problem—Kinda. Lol!
When I started to hear request for his story, I panicked. Authors don’t want to disappoint their readers. And being new to the published scene…Well, you get the picture. 😊
After the release of Buried Cold Case Secrets, many readers told me they wanted Keith’s story. In fact, the overwhelming response puzzled me. What had I done to create such a buzz about Jason’s partner? And of course, I had to ask why?
The general answer I received…Keith’s a nice guy and the perfect partner.
I have to admit, I got a little nervous since I had already written his story. And I worried if I’d done his character justice?
However, after writing Buried Cold Case Secrets, I knew Keith had to have his own story. He’s such a great guy and needed his happily ever after. So, I dove in and asked, what would happen if he made a huge mistake? Not just a physical one, but a heart one.
By the time I finished, I loved seeing Keith and Amy move past their poor choices and hurt to find acceptance and love. The perfect ending to Keith’s struggles.
All that to say, I hope you love Keith and Amy’s story as much as I do. #TeamKeith
