Welcome back to Ridge Trail, Colorado! Get ready for the next book in Lori Foster’s thrilling McKenzies of Ridge Trail series.

Detective Crosby Albertson has been tracking a criminal network. While investigating leads, he keeps crossing paths with members of the highly trained, suspiciously well-informed McKenzie family. They’re always one step ahead of him—especially their alarmingly attractive intel specialist, Madison. He wants to find out why.

Madison McKenzie is the tech and surveillance whiz of her family’s operation. A recent case introduced her to Detective Albertson. She finds herself irresistibly drawn to the sexy and mysterious cop. There’s just one problem. He’s a detective and her family’s work is secret. When Crosby starts digging for information about the McKenzies, Madison’s got to get him off the scent…while keeping him at a safe distance.

If you love series surrounding family- siblings and like a healthy side of suspense, like me, you’ll love the McKenzies of Ridge Trail. This story belongs to Madison and Crosby, but we are also treated to a surprise romance.

Coffee Dates with Watching Over You

  • First Date: While the two have had several sizzling encounters filled with snark and banter, Madison has it bad. Which is why she is following Crosby when he enters a mom and pop grocers. I love seeing these two work together and love the electric chemistry that envelopes them.
  • Second Date: Crosby has secrets, which is why he decides on a career change. We learn of a danger to the head of the McKenzie family and with it comes suspense, as Madison and Crosby must learn to trust each other. I loved the interaction between the siblings and how they teased Madison and even Crosby.
  • Third Date: While the series has some dark threads dealing with human trafficking, the characters and their bond balances out the dark. I loved the interaction between Parish and a new character we meet. I laughed more than once. Character growth and dangerous situations push forward the romance and I liked how it all played out. I didn’t want my dates to end but closed the book with a smile.

Now that the trilogy is complete, it’s the perfect time to binge read them. I think this is one of my favorite Foster series and look forward to her next.

    I’ve read one Lori Foster book and loved how she delivered the snarky banter between the characters. I love the sound of the suspense element in this one.
