what else is going to get killed?

Title: Killjoy
Author: Julie Garwood

A worrywart data-cruncher for the FBI (Avery) was raised by her aunt after her mother abandoned her and her grandmother died. Aunt Carolyn is kidnapped, while traveling to a posh resort in the mountains, by a contract killer.

John Paul Renard, a former CIA agent who's now a bit of a maverick, has been tracking the killer, Monk, for a year or so, ever since he tried to kill John Paul’s sister. Monk had dropped off the face of the earth, but just resurfaced, leading both Avery and John Paul to the resort.

While they are each, unsuccessfully, trying to find out what’s going on, the kidnapper calls Avery and gives them instructions. Though they’d never met, know nothing about each other, and don’t trust each other, Avery and John Paul set off into the wilderness, alone.

The kidnapper spends the whole time tracking them, trying to kill them, and yet, somehow, they miraculously survive running/walking several miles through the woods and a few jumps off waterfalls until they reach civilization.

Plus, they save the day (okay, Aunt Carolyn), and find true love!
