Baggage Claim by Amanda Tru
Montana native, Rachel Saunders, is looking forward to her all-expense paid weekend trip to New York. But, when her luggage is lost and she is accosted by an infuriating Homeland Security agent named Dawson Tate, events take a dangerous turn. Now, can she and Dawson elude their enemies and prevent a terrorist attack before the bomb in their possession is detonated in the center of Manhattan--all while keeping their obvious attraction to one another in check?
This book suffered from being too short--the suspense was great. From the time that the bomb was discovered in the suitcase to the time it exploded events occurred at a fast and furious rate without seeming rushed. The romance, however, was not so lucky. From a fake kiss or two to determined declarations on Dawson's part that he doesn't get involved with co-workers or women involved in his cases to the final HEA, the romance felt tacked on and unbelievable. I just don't see anyone falling in love over the course of one evening especially when they are panicked they might be blown up and/or shot be terrorists at any time. The first three fourths of the book are very enjoyable with the last quarter being less successful. If you are on the fence, I would say to give it a try.
