Accidental Target is the debut novel by Theresa Hall. Allison Moore is looking forward to her vacation, especially the chance to meet her new niece. But when she’s run off the icy road, her plans derail just as quickly.
Police Sergeant Jackson Archer has seen his share of tragedy so when he responds to a traffic accident, he wants to get away as soon as possible. At first, he’s not sure the victim, Allison Moore, is actually innocent. Until someone tries to kill her. With danger on her tail, Jackson takes it upon himself to get her to safety.
Accidental Target is a fast moving story full of danger and questions. Who is after Allison? How do they keep finding her? Who can they trust? Each time Jackson thinks he has her in a safe place, more trouble appears. The author did a good job of twisting the plot so that it kept me second guessing who I thought the suspects were.
Allison was a great character. Strong in the face of such constant danger. I found Jackson trickier to relate to. His past made him gruffer than I prefer in a hero. His friend and co-worker agrees. Allison, however, wasn’t afraid to stand up to his moods.
If you’re looking for a light, quick read with plenty of danger and a little romance, pick up a copy of Accidental Target. It’s a good story.
