Alive at 5 by Linda Bond

Zack is a former ranger, investigating his rich uncle's death. He is in no way looking for romance and he sure as hell doesn't want some reporter tagging along messing up his investigation. 

Samantha (Sam) is a reporter in need of a big scoop. When her friend and mentor dies in a mysterious "accident", her reporter instincts tell her there is something more going on and she is going to find out. Dragging her camera man George along, she decides to twist Zack's arm into letting them follow him on his "adventure". 

Sparks fly left and right with Sam and Zack and so do a few very near death encounters. 

The story is fun and engaging, the suspense will keep you flipping the pages, just to get to the big revelation. Because, come on it’s a mystery, there is always a big revelation. The ending is the only thing I would have changed a bit, perhaps add an epilogue where Sam and Zack go off into a non-death laced vacation; maybe have them sitting on the beach of Cabo sipping margaritas.
