Can she trust Clay to keep her safe in the Ozark wilderness long enough to stop a ruthless criminal’s vengeance?

Danielle’s Review

Christmas Vendetta by Valerie Hanson is a Love Inspired Romantic Suspense story that takes place at Christmas. Sandy Lynn’s past comes back to haunt her when an intruder nearly kills her roommate. Being rescued by the man she loved years ago just makes everything more complicated.

I enjoyed the suspense side of this story. I kept trying to guess who the bad guy was and the author kept throwing questions to make me doubt whether I’d figured out the mystery. Sandy Lynn has faced a lot in her life, which leads me to a trigger warning for those who struggle with abuse. This darker side was unexpected for an LIS Christmas story.

If you’re looking for a grittier romantic suspense that takes place at Christmas, try Christmas Vendetta.
