REVIEW: Witness On The Run by Susan Cliff

Posted December 27th, 2018 by in Blog, Harlequin Mills&Boon, Review, Romantic Suspense / 2 comments

Witness On The Run by Susan Cliff  is a romantic suspense book with a different type of hero. This hero, Cameron Hughes is a trucker. Not just a regular long-haul trucker but a very different type of trucker, an ice road trucker in Alaska. This is a very, very dangerous job as it entails running supplies to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska along the Dalton ice road. Many truckers have died along this treacherous route.

Cameron chose this job to escape his past. He is a widower who can’t get over the death of his wife and this danger suits him just fine. Meeting Tala Walker changes the dynamics of his life.

Tala is running away from her past, an emotionally and physically abusive husband and now murderers who know she witnessed their heinous act while emptying the garbage at the diner where she is a waitress. She runs from them and hides in Cameron’s truck. Cameron has eaten at the diner where Tala works and they have noticed each other. There is attraction there on both sides. Cameron who is an ex-police officer has a protective side to his personality. So in addition to being attracted to Tala he is determined to protect her. What perils await these two along the dangerous Dalton ice road?

This author has written a great storyline that flows with lots of action and some surprises. She spells out the various conflicts of each character individually and together with great expertise. Getting to the resolutions to these conflicts makes for an entertaining story. I don’t know if I would want to read about trucker heroes all the time but Susan Cliff did a great job making this one a good story. I enjoyed all the action in this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys lots of action along with some sexy scenes.
