HER LIFE IS ON THE LINE
For a year, U.S. marshal Hunter Davis has protected witness Annie Delacorte and her toddler daughter. But now, someone is determined to stop Annie from testifying against the men who killed her husband. To guard Annie, by-the-book Hunter will have to break a promise to himself: to not get emotionally involved. After all, he already cares more deeply than he ever imagined for the sweet family of two…a family he’ll do anything to keep safe and sound by his side.
Shirlee McCoy is on my list of romantic suspense authors to keep an eye on for new releases. Safe by the Marshal’s Side is a promise Hunter Davis makes, but it is near impossible to keep. The people who most likely murdered Annie’s husband are after her, and they are relentless. Their tactics kept me turning the pages. Great suspense.
What I loved about Safe by the Marshal’s Side is it isn’t typical suspense, and it would be tempting. Law enforcement and the woman he protects. You’d think it could write itself. But Shirlee McCoy casts doubt on characters that I couldn’t figure out. Kept the suspense going. Yet, threw just enough romance to make me root for the characters even though I knew that was going to create problems for the task at hand.
Safe by the Marshal’s Side was a fast read, and a great one. I definitely recommend.
