Walk Away (Camaro Espinoza – 2) by Sam Hawken
Former combat medic Camaro Espinoza is trying to put her past behind her. She knows she’s done bad things – but they were always for good reasons.
Then her calm, anonymous life is interrupted by a distress call from her sister Annabel. She’s become trapped in an abusive relationship with petty criminal Jake Collier, and she needs Camaro’s help.
Camaro has always protected Annabel, and she won’t stop now. But the situation is more dangerous than she realises. Jake has a sibling of his own, an ex-Marine named Lukas who is as unhinged as Camaro is uncompromising. And he and Jake are planning a much bigger crime.
As the federal marshals pick up Lukas’s trail, and a bounty hunter with a debt to settle closes in, Camaro’s smart enough to know that standing her ground is the last thing she should do. But even with a freight train like Lukas barrelling towards her, if there’s one thing she can’t do, it’s walk away.
Sam Hawken is the best-selling and Crime Writers Association Dagger-nominated author of the Camaro Espinoza thriller series, as well as the critically acclaimed Borderland Trilogy.
Camaro Espinoza is trying to adjust to civilian life when she gets a coded message from her estranged sister Annabel. It seems that Annabel’s boyfriend Jake knows that she has some money and has plans for that money. Camaro goes to help out her sister but learns that Jake has a brother that is an ex-marine, Lukas on his side. But that is not all, there are others that are out to get Jake and Annabell. Camaro definitely has her hands full trying to protect her sister and neice.
Camaro is a kick ass woman that is a former marine nurse. She has training to heal and to kill and a soft spot in her heart for her sister, even if they are estranged. Of course she is going to go help Annabel. But there is so much more going on that is going to keep Camaro on her toes if she plans on keeping everyone safe.
I love a great female lead that doesn’t deal with nonsense. She knows what needs to be done and does it. This is a great thriller as you follow along as Camaro tries to stop Jake and Lukas. I have not read the first book or the novella about Camaro but after reading Walk Away I will be definitely be checking them out.
I received Walk Away from the publisher for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
