A Promise to Protect by Patricia Bradley


What it’s about:

From the publisher/back of 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?”

My thoughts:

I think this book is one that will appeal to romance fans who want to branch out more to suspense, but still want the romance and don’t want anything too scary or creepy. I think this book is perfect for that type of reader. It’s not a full-fledged suspense book, but it definitely has some in it. I think when it’s categorized as just a suspense novel, hard-core suspense fans might feel this is not what they are looking for. That being said, it IS what I was looking for! I read the first one in this series and was excited for this second book and Patricia Bradley did not disappoint! It started out with a bang and was exciting and interesting from the first page. It did slow down a little in the middle but other than then, it was was a nice pace. There are many characters, but they are easy to keep track of from each other. Mrs. Bradley nailed the small-town gossip aspect included in this book. I live in a town of less than 800 and could relate to how the author incorporated the gossip and how people/the characters relate to one another in the small town (Wade, a deputy who goes undercover) but, I won’t say any more so I don’t give too much away. 🙂 I recommend this book for those looking for a softer suspense or a suspense/romance combination!

I give A Promise to Protect 4.5 stars out of 5
