A Promise to Protect

A Promise to Protect
Logan Point Book 2
Patricia Bradley
Ben, the local sheriff, isn't expecting a call from his old girlfriend Leigh. But he agrees to meet with her brother and see what he wants. He arrives to find a dead body and is now rushing to protect Leigh. But Leigh has some pretty big secrets and is not interested in her old boyfriend hanging around. When the crime rate in the small town escalates it's all Ben can do to keep things from falling apart.

I haven't even heard of this author before I picked up this book. But I was in for a nice surprise. Her writing style follows that of Dee Henderson or Irene Hannon. It's a mystery/suspense with a touch of romance thrown in. The author keeps the reader guessing with clues and sub plots to the fast paced story. Even though this is book 2 in the series it can work well as a stand alone. I haven't read the first book, although I will now. There were a few times that I would have liked to have read the first one simply because I wanted more details. But everything was clear with an even flow that didn't leave me lost and wondering what I'd missed. There is some violence as is common with most suspense. But it was handled well and with a Christian perspective. I really enjoyed the book and will be adding the first book to my reading list.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
