Don’t get caught in the surge.
Through a bullet hole in a wall, I watch a man bleed to death.
Those responsible think their crime died with the victim, until I identify them.
What’s a girl to do when she’s being hunted by murderers
witness protection can’t even stop?
My only refuge is a place I vowed to never go again.
When it’s do or die, an eight-year-old heartache suddenly seems trivial.
Besides, he won’t be there anyway.
But he is.
Turns out my old pain feels brand new the second his eyes meet mine.
I can’t leave. I can’t stay.
This snowy town that’s supposed to be my shelter
suddenly exposes me more than before.
With no one else to lean on, Liam becomes my lifeline.
Now we’re both running for our lives,
trying not to get swept away.
Avalanche is the perfect title for the beginning of Bellamy and Liam’s story. Not only because it’s something that can occur on one of the slopes at BearPaw Resort, but also because both Bellamy and Liam’s lives have seemed to tumble and rapidly slide downhill since they parted ways eight years ago – Bellamy due to witnessing something that puts her life in danger and Liam due to an injury that sidelines him and forces him to head back home.
And just like the danger that exists during an avalanche, that’s what surrounds Bellamy’s life, and because she seeks refuge in the only place she’s found comfort, she brings that danger along with her, which forces Bellamy to not only confront an 8 year heartache due to Liam’s presence but also to learn to trust again because if she doesn’t have someone watching her back, she may not make it out alive.
Boy how I’ve missed Cambria Hebert’s writing and characters! It’s been a bit since I’ve read a Hebert story, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to sign up for Avalanche’s book tour because it embodies all the romantic suspense qualities that I’ve come to, not only expect but adore, from Hebert.
Both Bellamy & Liam are such complex characters who continue to develop as they work through their past and what that means for their future. And even though both characters are overwhelmed with having each other back in their lives and perhaps having a second chance to get things right between them, what they must do is learn to trust one another again and find a way to keep safe while people are searching to silence Bellamy forever.
Avalanche is just the start of everything that happens to Bellamy & Liam as they reconnect and run for their lives, and I can’t wait to see where Hebert takes the storyline as well as her characters, and because readers are privy to both Bellamy and Liam’s perspective, we truly get to understand their thoughts, their fears, and their plan to protect one another and the second chance they have to be together.
Such a fantastic start! I’m dying to continue Bellamy & Liam’s story!
