Book description WITNESS PROTECTION WIDOW:Can the witness protection program keep her identity secret?
After Allison James finally escapes her marriage to a monster,
she becomes the star witness in the case against her deceased
husband’s powerful crime family. Now it’s up to
US Marshal Jaxson Stevens, Ali’s ex-boyfriend, to keep the WITSEC widow safe.
But as the danger escalates and sparks fly, will Jax be able to help Ali escape
her ruthless in-laws?
She shivered. The fire had gone out.
She kept on her jacket while she added logs to the fireplace and kindling to get it started. Within a couple of minutes, the fire was going. She’d had a fireplace as a kid,
so relearning her way around this one hadn’t been so bad.
She went back to the kitchen and turned on the kettle for tea.
Bob growled low in his throat and
stared toward the front door.
She froze. Her phone was in her hip pocket.
Her gun was still in her waistband at the small of her back. This was something else Marshal Holloway had insisted upon. He’d taught her how to use a handgun. They’d held many target practices right behind this cabin.
A creak beyond the front door warned
that someone was on the porch. She eased across the room and went to the special peephole that had been installed.
There was one on each side of the cabin, allowing for views all the way around. A man stood on the porch.
He was the typical local cowboy. Jeans and boots. Hat in his hands.
Big truck in the drive.
Just like Marshal Holloway.
But she did not know this man.
“Alice Stewart, if you’re in there,
it’s okay for you to open the door. I’m Sheriff Colt Tanner. Branch sent me.”
Her heart thudding, she held perfectly still.
Branch would never send someone to her without letting her know first. If for some reason he couldn’t tell her in advance, they had a protocol for these situations.
She reached back, fingers curled about the
butt of her weapon. Bob moved stealthily toward the door.
“I know you’re concerned about opening
the door to a stranger, but you need to trust me. Branch has been in an accident, and he’s in the
hospital undergoing surgery right now. No matter that his injuries were serious,
he refused to go into surgery until he spoke to me and
I assured him I would look after you, ma’am.”
Worry joined the mixture of fear and
dread churning inside her. She hoped Branch wasn’t hurt too badly.
He had a wife and a daughter.
She opened her mouth to ask about his conditioen she snapped it shut. The man at her door had not said the code word
My thoughts exactly
Would I recommend it ? Yes
Would I read more of this series ? Yes
Would I read more by this author?yes
In fact this is book 4 of hers that I've read so far and I actually own one that I have to read , while this is book 5 in a series and I've actually already read book 6 as well I had no trouble understand what was going on fact this one of my favorite types of romance to read , where the characters go up against the bad guys and one of the main characters is a cop, one of the things I loved about this was how the many character wasn't afraid to stand up for what was right and that was going up against her husband's family . Another thing I love was just like her other books I got lost in her story and wasn't even upset that I spent the day away reading it . With that said I want to say thank you to Harlequin Intrigue as well as Netgalley for inviting me to read and review it ,and I can't wait to read more by her .
