An author is also a top cop, while a fireman is a sleeper agent, and these two live next door to each other. As a blizzard descends over Christmas, Vicky and Nick get together, snowed in, but clearly there are undercurrents. She should arrest him, while he needs to kill her. Love has other ideas, though.
This is a quick read, a thrilling romance, well written, an almost old-style espionage tale, but with a modern twist. Well worth it!
