Final Mend by Angela Smith

Publish date June 23, 2014 by Crimson Romance

A recovering alcoholic, Jake Inman has found a new, healthier addiction: training for his successful triathlon career. But when his manager is murdered and beloved goddaughter kidnapped, another obsession takes hold: doing whatever it takes to find Brandon’s killer and keep Amy safe. Jake turns to a private investigator for help in solving the case, and though he finds temptation in her whiskey-colored eyes, he knows he must resist his attraction, or risk losing his heart.

After a devastating case, Winona Wall has turned her back on her skills as a private investigator, preferring a quiet life as a part-time bartender. That is, until Jake storms into the bar, demanding her help in tracking his missing godchild. Unable to resist Jake’s charm, she reluctantly agrees. But even after Amy is found unharmed, Jake insists Amy’s mother was more involved with her kidnapping than the police suspect. When the situation takes a turn for the worse, Winona must trust her instincts in order to save them all—and avoid falling in love.

My Thoughts:

Angela Smith has an amazing way with words.   Once I started Final Mend I could not put it down.    I was pulled in by the characters and their reactions, good and bad, to each other.   The feelings were obvious to the reader and I could not wait to learn more about Jake and Winona.

Winona had a history that she had just put on the back burner and tried to forget about.   When Jake approaches her to help him, he pulls up those memories that she had tried to forget.   It was sometimes hard to watch her fight what she knew was right and what she was trying to forget.   As she started to investigate more and more into the disappearance of Amy and the death of Brandon, her feelings grew deeper and deeper for Jake and the sparks flew.   The chemistry between these two is fun to watch unfold.   I kept hoping for a happy ending for them.


Final Mend is a story that kept me up all night having to read and was still on my mind when I finished the story.   I will certainly recommend it to my friends, family, and anyone else who asks about books to read.

About the Author

During her senior year in high school, Angela Smith was dubbed most likely to write a novel, and that has been her dream ever since her mother read 'Brer Rabbit' to her and her sister so often that they were able to recite it back to each other before they learned to read. Ever since then, she hasn't stopped reading or writing. A certified paralegal, work gives her perfect fodder for her romantic suspense stories. When not caring for her small farm or spending time with her husband of two decades, she enjoys creating, reading, and dreaming of the places she’ll visit one day.
