with excellent characters and a suspenseful storyline that kept me hooked from beginning to end Gabe and Ana partner in an undercover operation in his hometown of Wind River Neither one expected to find love, too.Ana is a sniper on loan to the DEA from Guatemala She derives a great deal of satisfaction from bringing down drug traffickers like the one responsible for her father s death Feeling a bit burned out, she yearns for somethingin her life She aches for a family of her own and the peace that her soul craves Just as she contemplates doing something about it, she is assigned a new mission join with Gabe in an undercover operation Ana isn t thrilled with the plan she works alone.Gabe spent two years undercover with a drug cartel and is ready for a break He longs to go home to his parents ranch and spend some time rediscovering who he is He isn t happy to have his leave canceled and assigned a new undercover operation This assignment immediately puts him on edge It is way too close to where his parents live, causing him to worry about their safety He s also assigned a partner, and he doesn t do partners.I liked the first meeting between Gabe and Ana They were both wary since each of them is used to working alone There is also an immediate and intense connection that takes them by surprise I enjoyed seeing them get to know each other and explore their rapport It doesn t take long for them to acknowledge the attraction that is also there, but they agree that doing anything about it must wait until after their mission is finished One of the things I enjoyed the most about the relationship between Ana and Gabe is the deep respect they had for each other and their abilities Gabe is protective but not controlling Ana is outstanding at what she does, but also listens and learns from his experiences.I liked the fact that Ana and Gabe did not rush their relationship I loved seeing them take the time to get to know each other, sharing everything from their painful childhoods to their dreams of the future Though the attraction between them simmered under the surface, they did their best to resist giving in Their feelings intensified as their danger increased I loved the ending and their realization that life is short I liked seeing them work through their plans for the future and look forward to seeing them in future books I hope there are stories in the works for Gabe s siblings, Luke and Skye.The suspense of the story was great There was an immediate sense of the importance of the mission and its deeper meaning to Gabe Though their mission is to observe and report, that didn t lessen the danger to them I liked Ana s cultivation of Mrs Elson as a contact Though it was deliberately done as part of the mission, it became a littleas time passed There was also an unexpected complication caused by a visit from Elisha Elson, one of the drug traffickers who had also gone to school with and been friends with Gabe There were some tense moments early on, as Gabe and Ana s observations showed the increasing activities of the drug runners The intensity went off the charts when one of Gabe and Ana s recon trips put them directly in the crosshairs of the bad guys I was on the edge of my seat as I watched their desperate attempts to get to safety Some unexpected help increased their chances of succeeding The final confrontation had me glued to the pages as I waited to see how they would manage it I loved the way that things came together for a satisfying ending Wind River Undercover is the ninth book in Lindsay McKenna s Wind River Valley Series This book is a romantic suspense novel with fantastic characters and a great storyline which adds to the Wind River Valley World that McKenna has created Anna Navaro and Gabe Whitcomb have been partnered up and sent to Wind River Valley to pose as new ranch owners in order to get close to the Elson family and uncover their ties to the ruthless Gonzalez drug cartel The connection

growing their friendship and trust while working undercover But the heat between them grows stronger, and when danger surrounds them, Gabe and Anna quickly realize that the life they ve built together is worth risking everything.I discovered Lindsay McKenna and this series while searching netgallery The cover drew my attention and once I read the synopsis I was hooked I hate starting a series at the end, so prior to reading Wind River Undercover I read all the books in the Wind River Valley Series I enjoyed them all and I thought that Gabe and Anna s story was a great ninth book for the series I love the premise for this series It s about veterans from various branches of the armed forces and the struggles they faces once they leave the service Both the heroes and heroines in McKenna s books are good, strong characters with strong morals and personalities I loved the details given to their backgrounds and storylines My only complaint is that the conversations between the couples are overly sweet and repetitive throughout each book, while the intimate details between the couples where anticlimactic All the books in the Wind River Valley series contain a happily ever after and can be read as a standalone, however, reading it in order will give you a better appreciation for the characters and the overall series itself I can t wait to read the next book in this series Hopefully it will be Skye s or Luke s story.This is a voluntary review of an advanced readers copy received from Netgalley Gabe, a DEA agent, and Anna, a sniper on loan to the US, hits the ground
