Title: Hidden Threat
Author: Connie Mann
Stars: 5 out of 5
I had no idea Hidden Threat was book 2 in a series because the author is able to bring readers up to date so quickly you have no idea it was an update.
Connie Mann writes a well spaced story about one woman willingness to stand up against the odds to do what it right. Readers will be able to see the research the author put into Hidden Threat but her love for the story.
From first to last page readers will be emotional invested in this story. Eve will put at the heart strings as she fights to give those hopeless hope. Readers learn family isn't always biological but is chosen. You will cry, cheer and fall in love with Eve in Hidden Threat by Connie Mann
Thank you to Netgalley for the advance Copy exchange for my honest thoughts
An environmental crisis is the last thing clean-water crusader Eve Jackson expected in her hometown. She’s used to taking on powerful DC politicians in her fight, but when a baby in Safe Harbor, Florida, shows mysterious signs of possible poisoning, the danger hits painfully close to home, stirring memories of her own mother’s death.
Eve’s search leads her to the Sutton Ranch, now run by her high school crush, Cole. Focused on keeping the family business afloat as a series of deformed calves are born to his herd, Cole has no time for Eve’s crusade. But as her unwelcome questioning ostracizes her from locals, Cole’s irritation turns to intrigue—about the source of the poisoned water and the tenacious, loyal, and passionate woman determined to help.
As Eve digs deeper into Cole’s operation, she sees her suspicion of Sutton Ranch may be misplaced. Yet she can’t shake the feeling that his ranch, and perhaps his past, hold the answers she seeks. When the sabotage escalates, the two must work together to uncover the culprit—if they can survive the investigation.
