Thirty-one year old Grace Ellery survived being stabbed multiple times in Ohio. Two years later, she moves to Murray, Virginia to get a new lease on life. 
On her first day of substitute teaching, her new life is nearly cut short when she finds herself in the middle of a shooting that leaves a married couple dead. Luckily, she is saved by Sam Meadows, a cardiologist, but the shooter has disappeared by the time the police come around. 
When the shooter tries to kill Grace again, Sam and Grace realize that the killer won’t stop until she is dead. With a killer who has nothing to lose, the question isn’t if the killer will attack again, but when and who will be in the crosshairs. A romance/murder-mystery wrapped in the aspects of life: love, family, forgiveness, danger, and death.
Charlotte Raine is the author of several romantic suspense books with more on the way. She worked in marketing and advertising for 15 years before focusing on her true passion, telling great stories. Charlotte gets inspiration for her writing from the scenic but serene mountains around her home in Vail, Colorado.

When she is not writing you will find her after a long day of skiing at one of the many lodges in Vail. She will most likely be next to a warm fire, drinking a glass of wine and telling stories.

Teacher Beware is a really good suspense story with a touch of romance and action. Told from different points of view, this story is dynamic, fast and pretty entertaining. I have to warn you that it ends with a cliffhanger despite solving the most important mystery. If you still want to read it, it's free on Amazon (so go and grab your copy).

This is the story of Grace Ellery a substitute teacher who recently moved to the tranquil Murray, Virginia. Unfortunately, she witnesses a shooting and becomes the target of a disturbed teenager. From then on the story mixes romance, suspense and violent attacks.

A survivor of a previous attack, Grace is a nice character. Mature and sensible she is a likeable person. Sam doesn't see himself as a hero but he ends up being very important to the story and Grace.

The book is told from the point of view of the three main characters and it also has some time jumps. For me this was a really good thing because it allows us to see the bigger picture and also it helps us understand why each one is the way he or she is.

The romance is simple but sweet. It evolves in a fast rhythm but is believable. I really liked Grace and Sam.

And despite knowing who is behind the attacks from the beginning of the book, it’s exciting to read how their paths mingle and figuring out what he would do next.

Overall, this is a great book with both romance and suspense.
