Promise to Protect by Patricia Bradley

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

Cover Art
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.

I received this book from Revell Blogger Program in exchange for my review. I was not required to give a positive review and no other compensation has been provided. 

My Thoughts:
My first book by Patricia was Shadows of the Past, the first book in this series, which by the way is not a necessary read to comprehend this book, but definitely a recommended one for its own sake. I fell in love with her writing immediately.  She can sure capture your attention from the very beginning. 
"Tony Jackson shouldn't be dying in a ritzy hotel room in downtown Memphis on a hot July night. He shouldn't be dying at all."
If that doesn't get you involved and read to read on... I don't know what will!

Patricia's writing is full of suspense. You will be hanging on every minute wondering what will happen next. What I also love about her is the way she incorporates her faith into the plot and characters.  After grabbing you, Patricia takes you on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs and tight packed action, with a few twists on the way. Insert some strained romance  and you're set.  

In this novel, main character Leigh Somerall is a single mom who works hard, loves her kid, and is obviously in need of protection. Main character two -Leigh's former flame, Ben, now sheriff and the last person she wants around, has given a dying man - her brother - his promise to protect her. And he intends to fulfill that promise even against her wishes. The story is full of unexpected surprises. An emotional ride in which you will be rooting for Ben to grasp God's forgiveness, for Leigh to give up her secrets, and of course a happily ever after ending to happen. Not wanting to give away spoilers, I would just highly recommend you read this book!
