When Ian Stone finds out his true identity he heads for Norcastle, New Hampshire to claim what is rightfully his, as Luke Spencer. But shortly after his arrival he finds himself being shot at and thinks it’s his siblings (Wade and Roni) not wanting him to have his inheritance. Sylvie Laurent, Police Chief of Norcastle, is convinced that Wade and Roni would not try to kill him. As they work together to unravel the mystery of who the shooter is, both Ian and Sylvie find themselves not only protecting each other but also discovering they have a very strong attraction. What they finally discover is more than they bargained for. Can they stay alive long enough to take down the bad guy and perhaps experience the Merriest Christmas Ever?
High Speed Holiday is certainly an appropriate title for this book, because from beginning to end you are definitely moving at high speed! I enjoyed going back to Norcastle and seeing all the familiar folks once again. I loved meeting Ian (Luke). He is such a great hero yet realistically flawed, which to me, made him all the more appealing. Sylvie was harder for me to like. She’s tough and very principled which came across as being kinda of cold. She did grow on me and I think Ian was a good influence on her. I loved the chemistry Ian and Sylvie had together. The verse at the beginning of the book was really brought to life throughout the story. It was Genesis 50:20 “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” A great reminder that regardless of what we might think, God is working all things together for good, so hang in there. This is the third book in the Roads to Danger series but can be read as a stand alone. Katy Lee is a favorite author who consistently delivers a page-turning adventure with an uplifting message.

A few favorite quotes:
“Family isn’t always about blood. They’re the people your heart claims.”
“So I guess it’s no father for me, then.” “There’s God.” Ian dropped his head back. “He’s the most important Father to have, I know that now. I wish I had known it when I was growing up. Life was hard…and lonely.”
Did Sylvie want him to stay? The thought of her desiring him in her life felt like what a gift under the tree might feel like. Joyful. Exciting. Special.
