He frowns. “You should get away from here. If anybody heard the gunshot —”
“You would have heard police sirens already. It’s fine, Avery. I’ll take care of it. I won’t be able to act normal in public anyway.”


My Opinion

Safe At Last is a worthy sequel to Trigger Point; an even more worthy ending for The Gun Runner trilogy. Once again, Avery Yakushev and Shannon Holmes take turns in tell us about what they feel and how they classify the events. It is a pretty fast paced read with a pleasant flow.

With Safe At Last, Charlotte Raine has created the thrilling third part of The Gun Runner trilogy. Safe At Last is also well balanced and – very fast-paced. The author increased the thrill even more, kept me in the story’s grip until the final paragraph. I was drawn into the story right away, an invisible yet involved party. Safe At Last is a good read for romantic (with a little intercourse!) suspense fans, who like to read short stories with a steady increase of thrill.

This is a very thrilling read; not only the third part of The Gun Runner trilogy is quite remarkable.


In brief:

Writing Good
Plot Some more twists and surprises
Mood Suspenseful
Pace Fast
Characters Developed
Violence Some violence
Sexual content Some sexual content
POV First person (alternating)

Charlotte gets inspiration for her writing from the scenic but serene mountains around her home in Vail, Colorado.
