    Very good book and conclusion to the Cold Case series of books Katie and Trent are both members of the Cold Case unit at KCPD They are also old friends having known each other since they were in high school Katie and her young son are members of a local theater group where Tyler is playing the part of Tiny Tim and Katie does the costumes When she isn't needed she uses the time to do some of her cold case research for workAt the beginning of the story Katie who is a genius on the computer has uncovered what appears to be some links between several cold cases That night at the theater some strange things happen that make her feel threatened Scared she calls Trent but then tells him not to worry she was actually okay Trent unconvinced shows up at the theater but Katie and Tyler are already gone He notices some things that are suspicious and also rescues an abandoned dogThe next day at work Trent tries to get Katie to tell him what happened but she insists that she was panicking over nothing In the meantime Katie fills in the rest of the team on what she has found It is looking and like the links they have found may lead to a mob boss they have been trying to nail for a long timeThe relationship between Katie and Trent is one of friendship by Katie's insistence As a kid she and her mother suffered from her father's physical and mental abuse then she saw her father murder her mother She has always felt responsible for that happening Then in high school she got pregnant was kidnapped by someone who wanted to steal her baby to sell it and lost a good friend to the same man She and Tyler were rescued and she has been determined to make better choices in her life ever since She also has a hard time trusting other people especially men Trent's friendship has meant a lot to her and to Tyler so she refuses to take a chance on ruining that friendship with anything else Trent has been in love with Katie for years He wants nothing than to marry her and become Tyler's father but Katie won't take a chance on them So he takes her friendship and tries to make the best of itAs the danger to Katie and Tyler increases Trent's protective instincts overpower his attempts to follow Katie's rules I loved seeing him pull them closer to him and overcome Katie's objections I also loved the way that he gave in to his need to kiss her and how that one kiss started changing the way Katie looked at him She had forced herself to keep him in the friend zone but that kiss has really opened her eyes to the man he has become It was fun to see how she was suddenly noticing his physical attributes and how sexy he was Unfortunately her fears still have her resisting what her heart really wants I really liked how Trent's patience and persistence finally started to break down the walls around her heart But it isn't until she thinks she'll never see him again that she can admit to herself how much she has always loved himI loved following Katie and the team as they worked their way through the information she uncovered The events of the previous two books are included in this one as they are finally able to link the crimes together and to the man behind them It was fascinating to see the connections uncovered and how each one led to another The escalation of the threats against Katie kept the intensity high Though it was pretty obvious who the man behind it all was it was the people in between that kept me guessing The final confrontation was fantastic I especially loved how Katie kept her head and used her skills to help the team find her at the same time she kept the bad guy focused on what he had her doing The arrival of the team came at just the right time and how it all worked out was perfect I loved seeing the bad guy's final plan thwartedThe last chapter was the perfect wrapup to the trilogy As always I loved the way characters from previous books are an integral part of the story not just tossed in as filler The support they always give each other both professionally and personally makes their relationships seem that much real I love some of the conversations between Trent and Max The ending was really sweet as the whole team comes to see Tyler in the play and Tyler gets his biggest Christmas wish

    I cannot help but laugh because I truly enjoyed this book There's a bit of everything; murder suspense crime unreuited love kinda a little bit of sexual tension AND A PLOT Because it's a Harleuin book it has to be of a certain length ie short but it's a rollicking good read It could have easily been a full novel delving into details about the crimes and the character's background But I'm grateful it isn't as it would have been gritty and depressing and that's just something you don't sign up for in a Harleuin book It was refreshing to read of the male's perspective as these romance books tend to heavily lean towards the female's side so that was enlighting All I could think of was Trent clearly loves Katie but has to remain professional and Katie loves Trent but doesn't want to jeopardize their friendship Its major friend zoning territory The sex was nothing to speak of a full hot paragraph but at least the physical description of the hunky hero and sexy heroine are consistent I mean Harleuin has to maintain SOME standards Overall it was a highly enjoyable read

    Excellent book It is part of a series but reads as a standalone I had a lot of respect for Katie She is a single mom and working for KCPD She is a member of the Cold case unit After work she is taking her 9 year old son to play practice He is part of a Christmas performance Her son Tyler kept me laughing throughout the story He was a typical 9 year old boy For Christmas he wanted a dad and a dog Katie and Trent has been good friends since Katie was 15 years old Trent has always wanted but Katie has always kept Trent as just a close friend She needed his friendship and was always afraid to take it to the next level She never wanted to lose Trent as a friend Katie was sent warning to stop her investigations Trent stepped in and made himself her body guard She fought against his protection until her son's life was threatened She would do anything to keep her son safeThe suspense and action was excellent throughout the story I loved the romance between Katie and Trent This book will be going onto my favorite's list to read again later on

    A really enjoyable fun uick read Katie has worked hard in the cold case suad for the KCPD but as the computer expert she's been uncovering secrets someone wants buried and has no issues with threatening her to make them stay secret Trent has loved Katie since high school but he's watched her struggle over the trauma she's been through As a detective for the same suad he has a front row seat for her struggles to remain calm as her life and the life of her 9 year old son are threatened Can Katie finally open herself up to than friendship with Trent and solve the mystery chasing her? Fun read and I'm not sure it's because I jumped in at book three in the series I was a little confused by the number of secondary characters and suspects which is why I have this 3 stars For such a short story it could have used some trimming so it was a little easier to pick up Outside of that fun read

    35 would be a better assessmentI interrupted my reading of this to read Shards of Hope The last time I read one of those think it was Vasic's book I found myself reading a book with a similarly tormented H and getting to compare them Seems kind of a strange coincidence that it would happen againOur h Katie had a v bad childhood Her father killed her mother She was kidnapped while trying to find a friend who'd gotten sucked into an illegal adoption ring So now she keeps everyone at arm's length including the best buddyold pal who's been hanging around forever because he just can't move on And why can't he? Not like she calls him every time she needs help It's called stringing along Also not nice And all because she's afraid to lose the friendship And yet it's apparently never occurred to her that three's a crowd and as long as she's hanging off his belt loops he's never going to have a relationship Or if he does she'll get the ax because what woman wants some chick hanging around her man who obviously is hung up on said chick?At least the h in Shards of Hope was honest with herself As far as she was concerned he was hers but she was afraid to let go of her control to be with him She had a bad childhood too her parents tortured her until she snapped and killed both of them She was 7 at the time and ended up where she was as the alternative was executionSo I finished this where eventually the h realized she loved the H only took her 10 years to figure this out? I had other issues largely involving the h and her computer I live in a household full of geeks and while they might leave electronics alone when surrounded by family no way would the ones doing anything important leave a laptop they were using for sensitive stuff stashed in a bag in an easily accessible room At the very least there's the concern of theft DH had a company laptop stolen from a rental car while he was having lunch once

    I received a free copy of this book at RT16For me this book was adeuate for what it is I thought the heroine's backstory was overkill in terms of explaining why she didn't trust herself to get involved with her best friend the hero Katie blames herself for her father shooting her mother This happened right in front of her Afterward Katie went to live with her aunt who was good to her At seventeen Katie got pregnant When she was nearly ready to give birth her friend Whitney disappeared Katie tracked her down but was kidnapped by Whitney's kidnappers When Katie went in labor a few weeks later she was handcuffed to a table in a makeshift hospital room The kidnappers turned out to be part of the black market in baby selling and she was separated from her son Tyler almost immediately They were rescued separately but there seemed to be a little conflict in the narrative so I'm not sure who was rescued first Unfortunately Whitney was killed and Katie blames herself for Whitney's death as wellTrent and Katie dated when she was pregnant nine years ago but she decided that while she loved him she wasn't in love with him After the kidnapping Katie stayed in town while Trent went off to live his life and played with the Kansas City Chiefs for a while Eventually he came back to town and they picked up where they left off and are best friends Trent is a good guy and is trying to have a life outside of Katie but he is in love with her and wants to be a father to Tyler as well as a husband to Katie Katie has the tried and true I am broken and I don't trust myself in a relationship reason for not getting involvedTyler doesn't come off as a plot moppet and has something to add to the story Katie's job at the police department is interesting and there is plenty of plot in this book outside the romance If you enjoy the friends to lovers trope I think you'll like this book

    This is the best one that I’ve read in this series in agesI felt the magic that I felt in the first books of this series and that makes me so happyA few things I would have liked for Miller to touch just a bit on was the h and H’s high school friendship Also since the h’s aunt and uncle had their own book early on in this series where we first meet the h too I would have LOVED to have actually seen them in this book not just them mentioned in passing but actual interactions with them Also I was really looking forward to an epilogue The H was so sweet and kind you tell right away how he felt about the h and her son He never had to macho or jealous or like an a which made me fall in love with him all the It’s a short book so for it’s length and depth the character growth from the h was okay but another hundred pages and I would have loved to see deep down in her and self reflectionSo happy to feel excited about this series again

    Good one closing the Cold Case miniseries don't worry Miller has another Bachelors in Blue starting soon This one ties together a lot of threads of many cold cases I'll never hear the movie title Strangers on a Train again without remembering this seriesThe story in the foreground is about Katie Rinaldi niece of the District Attorney and tech guru of the Cold Case suad Katie is a single mom with a single focus keeping her young son safe and keeping him away from the errors in judgment she has made in her life High school friend and now fellow detective on the suad Trent Dixon wishes she would focus on himThe story is a good one and good closure for the Cold Case guys and gals
