The Lumberjack by Susan Stoker

It all started with a game of chance…

“The Lumberjack” is the highly anticipated final installment in this amazing series by Susan Stoker and I loved every moment of it.

April and JJ have been dancing around each other for years until an accident finally makes them realize that life is too short to not be with the person you love. I enjoyed how quickly they moved into the relationship phase because it has been such a long time coming. It also leaves room for the suspense element to be fully developed.

Someone has it out for the team and April’s accident is the first in a series of suspicious incidents. I won’t spoil the lead up, but things come to a head in an explosive ending that had my emotions all over the place. JJ and the guys need help and they call in ALL of their markers. The number of cameos from other series made my heart so happy.

And that epilogue… Susan Stoker does an amazing job of giving readers a glimpse into the future of all the characters at the end of every series and this one was no exception. I love the continuation of the HEA for every couple. There is also a scene with Baxter that brought everything full circle and made me tear up more than a little bit.

I am sad to see this series come to an end but I’m hopeful these characters will make appearances in future books. Susan Stoker is an auto buy author for me and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
