Contemporary Fiction

Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard. A Review

At the advice of her therapist, homicide survivor Harper Reynolds has traded her job as a crime scene photographer for a more peaceful life taking photographs of the natural world. But her hopes for a life surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors are dashed when she inadvertently captures a murder being committed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She flees the scene in fear–and loses the camera.

Former Green Beret Heath McKade is a reserve deputy in an understaffed county who has been called in to protect Harper, a childhood friend he is surprised to see back in the area. When Harper learns that the sheriff’s department can’t find any evidence of the murder she witnessed, she is determined to do what she can to see that justice is done. What neither Harper nor Heath could know is how many explosive secrets from the past will be exposed–or how deeply they will fall for each other.

My Thoughts

This book was one thrilling ride that held me spellbound from the start and didn’t let me go and I loved every minute of it.
Harper and Heath are two people who have been touched personally by tragedy. As former military, Heath’s strong desire to protect sometimes “gets in the way” because he fears anyone who is close to him always gets hurt. Harper on the other hand becomes a crime scene photographer hoping to compensate and relieve the guilt she feels not knowing who killed her father. When she witnesses a murder while on vacation she’s put in a position she’s not sure she wants to be in. After surviving near death experiences, she’s more determined than ever to get the killer caught.
The author draws readers in on this exciting journey letting us know more about Harper and Heath and the pasts that have shaped their future and the fears that still too real in their lives. From getting shot at and nearly being driven off a cliff to surviving bombings and falling for each other despite trying seriously to deny it, they learn to trust God more and more. Recommended for lovers of romantic suspense
