    Book Summary

    Kristi Hartinger has come to terms with her life as a single, thirty-something woman. She was in love . . . once. But following her boyfriend's tragic death, no one else could capture her heart. And nothing else could fill that void, though the serenity of the ocean came close. Two years ago, Kristi left the craziness of her Wall Street career behind and embraced a simpler life on her family's private island off the coast of Maine. As a resident of the small beach community, she anticipates a quiet future—until she comes face-to-face with her past.

    Ace Samson is dead, or so the world believes. As a member of a secret organization known as the guardians, he was forced to fake his death years ago, leaving everything behind when he became an agent. So when he is selected to offer a potential new recruit a job with the organization, Ace braces himself: for the first time in more than a decade, he must face the woman he loved—and left.

    Kristi's world is rocked by Ace's sudden reappearance, and she's soon drawn into his world of danger and cover-up. But when Kristi herself becomes a target, Ace will do whatever it takes to protect the only woman he has ever loved.

    My Review
    I always get so excited when I get to read a new Traci Hunter Abramson book. Her books are the kind that I wander around reading at all times during the day; say at the lunch table in my faculty lounge for example. They are always so hard to put down. 

    This new novel is part of The Guardian Series: Book #3. I know people will say that this book can be read without reading the other books, but I'm pretty particular about reading the books that come first. You always "see" former characters show up and I like to have a background on them. 

    Main characters Kristi and Ace were supposed to get married twenty years ago until Ace was killed in a car accident. Kristi is shocked when Ace shows up, alive and with an unbelievable story about his current occupation. The Guardians are a secret government organization that do super secret things. With bad guys wanting to steal Kristi's land and Ace and his colleagues having their own problems this causes the intense, non-stop action scenes in this novel. I loved that Kade and Renee from the last Guardian Novel, Safe House, play a big part in this novel too. I especially loved Kristi and Ace and how after twenty years they stepped right back into the comfort and ease of their former relationship. It still takes awhile to completely get together, but what a great ride along the way.  I also truly loved Kristi's dog Samson. 

    Anyone that loves a great mystery/suspense will be hooked once you start reading this novel. The ups and downs of trying to figure out who is behind everything that's going on is more than half the fun of this book. I highly recommend Sanctuary and can say if you've never read Traci's books before, you've been missing out. This is one writer that knows what's she doing as she builds great plots, fabulous characters, and inserts twists and turns that will leave you reeling in your seat.
