My GRL (John J. Cannon Series, #1) by John W. Howell

Karen Oberlaender has a wonderful blog about books and other interesting things. She is a member of Rosie’s Book Review Team and as she describes herself, “A confessing book addict.” Her blog is worth a visit not just because she has posted a lovely review of My GRL, but because there is a ton of good things to read. Thank you, Karen.

He travels to a small Texas fishing town and buys a boat, unaware that his new purchase, renamed My GRL, had already been targeted by a terrorist group. John’s first inkling of a problem is when he wakes up in the hospital. He learns he was found unconscious next to the dead body of the attractive young woman who sold him the boat in the first place. John now stands between the terrorists and the success of their mission.
