For Maddie and Jacob, this first meeting is the spark that will allow them both to heal and discover new life and love together.
Because I’m Watching seventh in the Virtue Falls series of romantic suspense books by Christina Dodd that are set in northwest Washington. While it is not necessary to read the other books in the series, you do get a better understanding of the recurring characters, like Kateri Kwinault. Kateri is a former Coast Guard commander turned sheriff who had an encounter with a frog god when her Coast Guard ship went down in a storm.
