Lamar “Tick” Calvert has made it his personal mission to clean up his hometown sheriff’s department.  He hopes burying himself in work will keep his mind off his ex lover.  He fails miserably when Caitlin is assigned to help him solve a group of murders.  Now he just needs to know why she pushed him away.

Caitlin Falconetti is an FBI profiler.  After surviving a brutal attack she pushes away the only man to hold her heart.  Her work is the only thing keeping her sane when she is forced to work with Tick again.

Will this string of murders bring these two lovers together again?  Can they find the killer before its too late?

Hold On to Me has it all; action, suspense, romance, sex, heartache and hope.  Tick is such a stand up guy with a few faults, just how I like my men.  He is a southern boy down to his toes.  Caitlin is a strong independent woman who really knows how to take care of herself.  When her world falls apart she turns into herself and sometimes she is too strong willed.  I think that and not communicating brings the problems Tick and Caitlin have with each other.  If they would just talk!

Linda Winfree has a way of writing everyday life with her southern twist that you fall in love with all her characters.  I love that she brings them back again and again in this series.  I also love the fact that Ms. Winfree is one of the few authors who can make her characters deal with consequences and make me still love her stories.  Hold On to Me is no different.  This book is full of angst, but it goes down well with the spoon full of sugar Ms. Winfree gives us with the dreamy Tick and the bold Caitlin.

I am Joyfully Recommending Hold On to Me for making me cry and LIKING it.  Hold On to Me had me crying both happy and sad tears and when a book does that, I know it’s a keeper.
