    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I love this series and this new installment did not disappoint. Ryker and Savannah are reunited at a friend's funeral. They had an incredible one night stand five years ago and each thought they would never see one another again. Like a typical Freethy novel, the story comes out gate after the first chapter. One of their friends has an accident that feels suspicious and too coincidental with the death of their friend. Ryker and Savannah follow l I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I love this series and this new installment did not disappoint. Ryker and Savannah are reunited at a friend's funeral. They had an incredible one night stand five years ago and each thought they would never see one another again. Like a typical Freethy novel, the story comes out gate after the first chapter. One of their friends has an accident that feels suspicious and too coincidental with the death of their friend. Ryker and Savannah follow leads that takes them on a journey that opens old wounds for Tyler when he was an Army Ranger. He is struggling with PTSD and Savannah feels helpless because he refuses help and she doesn't want him to suffer. The clues reveal a huge cover-up that blindsides Ryker. He and Savannah know the truth and find their lives are in danger. I was moved by the detail of Rykers daily challenges with his PTSD. Savannah's memory of Ryker from their first meeting is one of a very confident man, but his time in combat breaks him and he feels lost. Leave it to this author to weave a tale of despair and hope and love. I hope there are more stories in this series.

Savannah is a compassionate friend, and a determined, independent FBI Agent. I liked how she didn’t put up with anyone’s nonsense, including her own father’s poor and dismissive attitude towards her and her job. She’s great with Ryker and sympathetic to the symptoms he had been experiencing after the ambush on his unit, and, unlike everyone else, she doesn’t question him when he’s insistent that incidents others brush off as accidents or suicides are, in fact, something more. This book will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Action packed and filled with mystery, Critical Doubt is a treat for readers both new and old to the series. **I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy**

There are so many twists, turns and shocks in this book. Savannah is an FBI agent going back to her home town where her best friends’ husband is being buried. Savannah is a strong willed, excellent agent as well as a loving, and supportive friend. Savannah runs into Ryker, who she had a fling with five years ago, at the funeral. Ryker was the leader of the Rangers unit her friends’ husband was in. Ryker has kept a low profile as he has problems with hearing bells in his head at times and gets lost with what he is doing. There is another death of one of the team members right after the funeral. Everyone is devastated. Savannah and Ryker team up together to see if someone is trying to take out the whole team. I loved how Savannah and Ryker are able to back each other up. The trust they build is great for their relationship. This is the start of a scary adventure where Savannah and Ryker are getting shot at, blown up and so much more. I was surprised at the end. I strongly encourage you to read the book. I was given a copy of the book and voluntarily wrote a review.

Savannah is now an FBI agent , having been tired of living the life everyone else wanted her to live. This is part of the FBI series , off the grid , but can be read as a stand-alone. Another fantastic, adrenaline filled, page turning book written as only Barbara Freethy can write.

    Wow! Barbara Freethy has once again delivered an incredible romantic thriller with Critical Doubt. Each book in Barbara Freethy's Off the Grid: FBI series gets better and better, and I think that Critical Doubt is my favorite book in the series. I absolutely loved Critical Doubt, the seventh book in her Off the Grid: FBI series. Critical Doubt had me guessing throughout the story what was really going with the former Army Rangers and the other thrilling events. I could not put it down. I loved e Wow! Barbara Freethy has once again delivered an incredible romantic thriller with Critical Doubt. Each book in Barbara Freethy's Off the Grid: FBI series gets better and better, and I think that Critical Doubt is my favorite book in the series. I absolutely loved Critical Doubt, the seventh book in her Off the Grid: FBI series. Critical Doubt had me guessing throughout the story what was really going with the former Army Rangers and the other thrilling events. I could not put it down. I loved every page. I really enjoy how the book is told from the perspective of the main characters. I love getting the insight and feelings from the different characters. Barbara Freethy has once again proven that she is a master storyteller. Critical Doubt is the story of Ryker Stone, former Army Ranger and Chesapeake Bay fishing charters boat owner and Savannah Kane, an undercover FBI agent, former beauty queen, former Army Intelligence officer and daughter of Army Colonel Henry Kane. Ryker and Savannah meet again when they both head to Dobbs, Georgia for the funeral of Paul Hawkins, husband of Savannah’s childhood best friend, Abby and Ryker’s Army Ranger team member. Savannah and Ryker had originally met five years ago in a bar in a war zone and had a one-night stand with no names. Savannah discovered Ryker’s identity several years ago, when see saw a picture of Paul’s Army Ranger team at Abby’s home. After Paul’s funeral, another team member is involved in an accident, Ryker jumps in the river to save him. After multiple attempts on their lives, the relationship between Ryker and Savannah changes. Neither is sure if their relationship is just fueled by the adrenaline from the chase. I loved the relationship between Ryker and Savannah. Savannah reaches out to her team for help when things got complicated. I love how Savannah helps Ryker with the debilitating ringing bells that he suffers with. Eventually all clues lead them to what really is going on with Ryker’s former Army Ranger team member, I did not see that happening. That was such a surprise twist for me. I really enjoy the poignant and bittersweet moments, the plot twists and the surprises that I have come to love and expect in Barbara Freethy's books and Critical Doubt did not disappoint. One of my favorite parts of the story are the poignant moments that Savannah has during conversations with her father, who she has been estranged with since the death of her mother when she was thirteen years old. I loved all the secrets that Ryker and Savannah shared with one another. I love that Ryker realizes Savannah’s vulnerabilities. I love that Ryker agrees to relocate to be closer to Savannah. I love that all the characters from the previous books were included in Critical Doubt. It felt like a family reunion and I loved catching up with the other characters from the series. I love how all Barbara Freethy's epilogues, wrap up the ending of the story and are always my favorite part of her books. I love how all the loose ends got tied up. I love all the characters and the way Barbara describes the locations in and around Dobbs, Georgia, Washington, DC, Baltimore and Los Angeles. It was really an incredible story and I loved every page.

    This is the seventh book in the Off The Grid:FBI series. This series by Barbara Freethy is phenomenal. It just keeps getting better. It is so very well written.

You definitely know how to weave a tale of mystery and suspense, along with some wonderful romance. Now I’m curious and looking forward to reading Jax’s story in Fearless Pursuit.

Five years later, Savannah is an FBI agent and Ryker has left the Army Rangers with his team mates some were killed in their last mission.

    This was my first by this author and I'll be reading more. The H and h had chemistry, there was suspense and surprises, the secondary characters held their own without me wondering why they were involved and even tho this is a series it felt like a stand- alone book. I recommend this good read. This was my first by this author and I'll be reading more.

    This is one of those books where you read a few more pages every time you get a chance. I was reading at 4:00 am! It’s got the romance and misery and human interest (this time (military and law enforcement). Well, anyhow, I loved this summer read. Thanks
