About the Book:

Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn’t heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn’t mean he can get her–or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago–out of his head. When she calls out of the blue, it is with a strange request to protect her brother, Tony. When Tony dies just days later, Ben is charged with a different task–protecting Leigh and her nine-year-old son, TJ, from the killers. But how can Ben keep an eye on Leigh if she’s doing everything in her power to avoid him? And could the secret that Leigh is keeping change Ben’s life forever?

Suspense, intrigue, and a touch of romance make A Promise to Protect perfect for readers who like their stories with a hearty dose of mystery.

My Review:

Are you looking for a suspense book that is not graphic or gory, but with enough of a mystery that it keeps you on the edge of your seat? This is the ticket!  From murder to bombs, this book has it all, with a hint of romance to keep your faith in humanity, I really enjoyed this read. It has some typical cliches, but it also had some depth in the story with personal foibles that the main characters carried on their backs. I enjoyed the personal stories as well as the good mystery storyline!
