USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard weaves a tangled web of nail-biting suspense and heart-stopping romance in this fast-paced conclusion to her Rocky Mountain Courage series.
Elizabeth Goddard is one of the most talented writers for romantic suspense novels. Her latest novel, Critical Alliance is the third installment in the Rocky Mountain Courage series. It has been a while since last reading the previous novels, and I was able to follow along. The words are written so well, I was hooked! I wanted to know more about the characters. The further the story went, the better it got. ELizabeth Goddard is the queen of suspense. I could not figure it out until she released the information to me as a reader. The novel has a dark edgy vibe to set off the story. Each character had challenges and risks to weigh. I love the bond that was developing through the pages between the hero and heroine. Mackenzie and Alex both have careers that jeopardize their lives daily. Murder, danger, and romance hung onto every page. These characters have a determination to be the best and to do their best. I love strong characters. One of my favorite things about this writer and her books especially this novel, was that I did not know how it could end. It could end happily or for the worse. Elizabeth Goddard never disappointed readers like me. It was intense from the start. Critical Alliance is action-packed and thrilling.
