What It’s About:
Detective Claire Goodnite is finally marrying her sexy SAIC, Wesley O’Connell in this suspenseful conclusion to the series.
The hall has been booked, the flowers have been ordered, and the invitations have been sent. Everything is finally falling into place for the happy couple, or so it seems.
That is until a hunter the likes of the old DC Sniper has his sights set on New Jersey Law Enforcement and suddenly the thin blue line has a big, old target painted on their backs. It’s open season on police officers and federal agents alike. She might be the best damn detective in the state of New Jersey but even this case has Claire running for her life.
Not to mention the loss of one of her inner circle seems to have shook something loose in her mind. Claire’s memories of that long ago day when she was taken from her home as a child are surfacing one after another. But will she remember before it’s too late?
It’s like they always say, every story has its ending.
Are you ready for this one?
It’s gonna sting.
By the time we walk into the reception hall my cheeks hurt from smiling but I am ecstatic at the idea that when Wes and I get back from our honeymoon in Italy that we will have a stack of pictures to put up in our house and one day show our children.
The room is filled with all of our friends and family who cheer ridiculously loud when Wes and I are introduced as Mr. and Mrs. O’Connell. I’m pretty sure it was the SEALs. They are a pretty rowdy bunch even in their early forties.
Mr. and Mrs. O’Connell.
I have to admit. I love the sound of it. I’ll probably always be Goody or Detective Goodnite at work, but in real life, I am Claire O’Connell. I want to be tied to Wes in as many ways as possible.
My love for him is that big.
Wes leads me out into the middle of the dance floor and twirls me into his arms. We dance under the lights to the words of Yours by Russell Dickerson and they couldn’t be more true. Wes expertly twirls me around the dance floor.
I have lived many years before Wes came back into my life, but with him I can accomplish anything, I can survive whatever life throws at me because I have him by my side. He truly makes my life better in every way.
“Thank God I’m yours,” Wes repeats the song lyrics in my ear as the song ends.
“I thank God I’m yours too, Wes.” The tears still shimmer in his eyes. Mine too. I knew today would be full of feeling but I love it. My heart is full to bursting for him.
My love for him is that big.
