a promise to protect


In a steamy small town riddled with broken promises, one woman’s secret could change everything.

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. But all too soon, Ben is charged with a different task–protecting Leigh from the people after her brother. With Leigh doing everything in her power to avoid Ben, it’s no easy task. And the secret she is keeping just may change their lives forever.

My thoughts and giveaway:

This is the second book in the Logan Point Series. I really enjoyed the first one and knew Patricia Bradley would be an author to watch.

And I was right. Book two proved to be just as interesting as the first. We have a lot of well-rounded characters, each with their own personality. Patricia has weaved together a tangle of mysteries. Who can Leigh trust? I definitely had my doubts about a few characters early on but didn’t know if my suspicions were correct.

Patricia did a great job of keeping a mental distance between Leigh and Ben yet they are so tightly connected in a way that Ben doesn’t even know. And Leigh is struggling with telling a lie and keeping a secret. I love her innerturmoil, it definitely had me sympathizing with her. I felt so sad for her and her lack of faith and how she has given up on trusting God.

Both characters have a lot of brokenness in their lives that they need to overcome and heal from. Those are my favorite kind of characters.

Although this the second book in the series it can be read as a stand-alone. So have no fear if you haven’t read the first. I recommend this book for any romantic suspense lover.
