Deep Freeze

The storm sweeps in like a thief in the night…

Winter storm Holly is the worst in eighty years bringing high winds, subzero temperatures and snowfall better measured in feet than in inches. The weather paralyzes everything in its path, but, in this storm, weather isn’t the only threat.

Emma Miller, a probationary security consultant posing as a reporter, is stranded at Portal International Airport in the worst storm in eighty years. She’s reassigned to protect a top-secret High Containment Lab in the international airport that houses the deadliest bio-contaminate diseases on the planet. A lab under attack by international terrorists who want those pathogens to sell on the black-market.

Dr. Gregory Mason Martin is a bio-containment specialist who runs the top-secret lab, and he knows Emma well. They grew up together, went to school together, and she’s always fascinated him, but she has a long-standing habit of going through men like water, so he’s kept his distance. He doesn’t dare to trust her or her abilities.

Now, all these years later, they must work together to protect the lab and stop the terrorists from obtaining the pathogens. And they must protect the pathogens from Holly, the deadly storm barreling mercilessly toward them. If those pathogens are stolen, the world will be held hostage, and worse, if mishandled, the country could be facing the worst pandemic in history. A pandemic that in short order could wipe out not just cities and states, but the entire nation.

Both are willing to risk their lives. Both are reluctant to risk their hearts. Yet events prove neither of them is who they were thought to be. And a fierce battle against terrorists and the storm proves challenging but no match for the challenges chambered in their human hearts.

Winter storm Holly means business as it bears down on Colorado, and travelers are stranded all over the state including Portal International Airport. Unbeknownst to these weary, trapped travelers, a top-secret High Containment Lab containing some of the deadliest pathogens known to man is right below their feet! And worse, there is credible evidence that an attack on the lab is imminent! Emma Miller, a probationary security consultant who has been grounded in Portal on her way home from her last assignment but now is redirected to handle this emergency.  She is totally qualified but the person in charge just happens to be the one man that has always doubted her.
Dr. Gregory Mason Martin is a bio-containment specialist who runs the top-secret lab and knows Emma well.  They grew up together and went to school together but in his mind, her “flighty” nature leaves him doubting her abilities to stop the threat and keep the lab safe from the terrorists determined to breach security and the lab to get their hands on the deadly secrets within. With threats coming at them from all sides and lives on the line, Emma and “Mason” might just learn a few things about each other and themselves as they fight to keep everyone safe from both nature and the greed of men willing to set off a pandemic of epic proportion for the love of money.

Emma is a security specialist sent to the airport in Portal, Colorado, just as a history-making snow storm is bearing down on them. Her assignment is very unusual, to protect a secret lab built way underground that houses some deadly pathogens. The action was fast-paced and non-stop, taking the reader deep into the bowels of the airport. In fulfilling her duties, Emma is forced to work with Mason, a scientist who was once well-known to her. The story was believable and terrifying at times, with terrorists striking at the most opportune time but also the time when little assistance was available to those trying to keep the lab safe. Vicki Hinze did a great job of continuing the story line of the Storm Watch series, creating a scenario that kept me enthralled from beginning to end. Fans of romantic suspense will definitely enjoy this book and it is a clean read.–Vickie Watts
