A Promise to Protect Book Review


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. (Goodreads)

My Review

I read the first book in this series I while it wasn't my favorite I had hopes for this book. Sadly, the more I read the more I was disappointed. I like Ben but he is the only character I really enjoy reading about. Leigh drove me insane and I didn't think her character was very realistic. At one point her house gets broken into, set on fire, and she gets shot at. At all of these moments she shrugs it off. She isn't worried, she doesn't find protection or shelter. And she has a son! If a person is getting shot at, especially a mom, she is going to be worried! The mystery and suspense were somewhat interesting I just didn't enjoy reading Leigh's character.

I don't want to be too harsh, I just think the book could be better. There are still good suspense theories and ideas.

Three stars.

"I received this book from Revell for free in exchange for an honest review."
