Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
When Gwen Harwell witnesses someone dumping a body into a Tennessee river, she knows she's the killer's new target. Far from home on a work assignment, she isn't sure where to turn—especially when her ex-husband appears.
Five years ago, Dean Harwell's burdens from his police work tore their marriage apart. But now he's working as a rancher and put his problems behind him. He's committed to keeping her safe until the killer is caught. With their troubled past, trusting him with her life is hard enough. Can she trust him with the truth about the child he doesn't know they have?
In a Killer's Sights is a Christian suspense novel. The murderer repeatedly targeted Gwen and Dean, but they don't know whodunit. There's enough information that the reader can guess whodunit, but there's a good reason that Gwen and Dean don't make the connection.
The characters were generally nice, engaging people. In the rare moments without flying bullets or flames, Gwen and Dean got to know each other again. Gwen realized Dean had overcome the alcoholism which motivated their divorce. But she's kept a secret that she doesn't think he'll forgive. She struggled with what was the right thing to do and exposing herself to needing his forgiveness.
The Christian element was mainly short prayers for help and references to God's help in Dean overcoming his past. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this quick, exciting novel.
