About the Book:

Guarding witnesses? All in a day's work for deputy U.S. marshal Carly Masterson. Protecting the judge who was indirectly responsible for her mentor's death? That's another story. Still, she won't let harm come to Judge Nicholas Floyd, or the niece and nephew in his care. She's determined to do the job right, and not let her emotions take over--no matter how wonderful it feels to be accepted by the little family. Can she let go of the past and learn to trust again before danger finds them once more?

My Rating & Thoughts:    

I really enjoyed the characters and following them but there is one scene with snakes in an office that is described so well that I was creeped out because it felt so real. We meet Carly Masterson who is a U.S Marshall, her and her partner have been assigned to protective custody of Judge Nicholas Floyd and his two kids. He has been threatened because of a case that he is presiding over. There are people who don't want him to and want him to step down and hand over the case of somebody else. We learn that Carly and Nick knew each other prior to this as Carly had been previously been assigned as protective custody for Nick about two years ago when he was still married before his wife passed away. They had formed a friendship then. Two years have passed since then and during that those years he lost his wife sister and gained custody of his niece and nephew. When the romance and feelings started developing I was okay with it because it didn't happen overnight, yes they've been spending 24/7 together for the last week or so but because the friendship was already there the feelings didn’t feel rushed. Nick was very strong in his faith and even though some events are happening that could really shake his faith he stays committed to trusting God and is able to show Carly why she needs to put her faith in God and trust him. In true Lynette Eason form I was unable to guess until it was revealed who the bad guy was. The ending scene with the kids made me smile.
