    Margaret Daley has done it again, this is my favorite book of hers yet! Anchorage is left behind and small-town Alaska is the location of heart-stopping danger and romance. I finished Standoff At Christmas fairly quickly, I just couldn't seem to put it down, but still spent a lot of time trying to puzzle out exactly who was part of it and who wasn't. Margaret Daley is a very talented author and good at keeping readers guessing. I know some of mine were right and some came as real surprises.

    Having read the entire Alaskan Search And Rescue series I was glad when I found out that Standoff At Christmas was about Jake, and more importantly, his dog Mitch.

    I was quickly involved in the story, immersed in Margaret Daley's trademark romance and spine-tingling suspense, and the characters soon became friends as I came to care about them.

    Standoff At Christmas is not only a great holiday read but also a story to enjoy at any time of the year. Don't miss Margaret Daley's thrilling conclusion to an exciting series.

    (I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my review. All opinions are entirely my own.)

    Standoff at Christmas (Alaskan Search and Rescue, #4) by Margaret Daley

    Margaret Daley keeps you on edge in this book. I was shocked at the murder of an elderly woman. This book picks up with Jake Nichols (he and his dog were injured in the last story) coming home for some down time after his injuries and gives him a chance to renew his friendship with Rachel Hart. I have lived in Alaska two different times and it was kind of like going back for a visit with this story. I just kept thinking to myself what is going to happen next? I loved how there is a mix of mystery, suspense, and romance with a little bit of Christmas thrown in. A good read for suspense/romance/Christmas story lover.

    Standoff at Christmas is another compelling suspense from Margaret Daley! Jake Nichols returns to Port Aurora and discovers that danger is lurking in the sleepy little town. When his childhood friend Rachel Hart finds herself in grave danger, Jake knows he will do anything to protect her.

    I really enjoyed the suspense of Jake and Rachels story! The drama escalates and tension builds, keeping readers on the edge of their seat. A small-town romance riddled with danger, Standoff at Christmas is an exciting romantic suspense!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. All thoughts expressed are my own.

    Margaret Daley is a wonderful author whose novels I have found to be outstanding. You can expect in this small novel to be drawn in by the unexpected murder of an aunt, local people being suspected of illegal drug activities and a developing romance between a K-9 Officer named Jake and Rachel who works in the fishery accounting office.

    A couple of times throughout the book I had thought I discovered who was involved or masterminded the drug cartels activity in Port Aurora. However, Margarets knack for throwing in false leads will keep the reader turning pages until the conclusion proved to lead me to follow some red herrings. All the mystery begins when Rachels aunt calls her to come into work on her day off because she must talk to her immediately. When Rachel arrives, her aunt seems to be scared and unwilling to open up about what is on her mind.

    When Rachel is almost killed and then injured a couple of times, Nate becomes her protector whether she is willing to have one or not. Unbeknownst to either character someone is watching them and is making it very hard to live life without constant danger riding on Rachels coattails.

    Like other Love Inspired Suspense novels, the book is not too long, but the fictional tale inside will keep you reading until the culprit is revealed!

    Heres another great addition to Margaret Daleys Alaskan Search and Rescue series. She keeps the reader on the edge of the seat with this one. It seems suspense-filled action is played out in almost every chapter. I have never been to Alaska but the authors writing makes me feel like I am right there in the little Alaskan town of Port Aurora. In the span of a year the town had gone from a place where there was almost no need for a police department to one where the department was drastically understaffed to handle the crime wave that had come crashing in. Jake Nichols had come home to recuperate from a life-threatening accident while working as a K-9 officer in Anchorage, only to be caught in the middle of some serious criminal activities that are threatening the life of his childhood friend, Rachel Hart. The town is preparing for Christmas, but the reader starts to wonder who will still be alive to celebrate. The big question in the mind of romantics is what is going to happen with Jake and Rachel. I recommend you read the book to find the answer to that question and also to learn what is happening in this once sleepy (or maybe it was frozen) little town before the criminals appeared on the scene. You will also want to find out who the criminals are. Theres enough suspicion to go around. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
