A Promise to Protect by Patricia Bradley From Revell

A Promise to Protect by Patricia Bradley

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

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.

“A taut story of mistakes and betrayal, a mother’s fierce love, revenge and danger–and the redeeming wonders of faith and love.”–Lorena McCourtney, author of the Cate Kinkaid Files and the Ivy Malone Mysteries

“Old secrets, second chances at love, and a skillfully crafted small-town suspense. You will fall in love with Ben and Leigh and cheer them on as they fight for their happy ending. I’m making room on my shelf for all of Patricia Bradley’s novels!”–Susan May Warren, bestselling and award-winning author of When I Fall in Love

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Sometimes situations get so mixed up that its difficult to figure out who’s who or what’s been done! And this story is just like that. Ben  is determined to find out the story behind his dad’s death, and was glad Tony has information that may help him. But now Tony has been shot dying and has ask Ben to take care of his wife Leigh, which will be no easy task either. It is difficult for Ben to protect Leigh because they are both headstrong and butt heads. Not to mention the secrets she is keeping from him. And what about his secrets? And then there is the attraction to each other!

I love books like this because I keep trying to figure out what is going on, and there are so many twists and turns that I can’t. By the time I think I have it figured out, something else happens! The characters are really believable and realistic and your interested is sure kept throughout this book because you don’t want to put it down! If you are looking for a fast pace, thriller for a little excitement and entertainment, this book would be for you! I encourage you to check it out.

MY THOUGTS ON THIS BOOK

The first thing I loved about this book is that it is based on a true story. Though I would have been horrified if I had know someone who actually went through this horrible situation. And I hope this story will make people think before they trust anyone on the internet, not just someone in another country. But Mallory was so determined to save a life, that she would do anything to accomplish her goal. I thought Mallory acted so very immature in actually going through with marrying someone in another country, in name only, just to save his daughter. She knew nothing about this man, and didn’t even have him thoroughly check out before she went traipsing off across the world to marry the guy. I’m not sure if I see her as the heroin in this story or not. I think Tate is more the hero, because he loved Mallory enough to go after her, despite the dangers he could face.

Beth Wiseman is one of the best author’s I’ve read, and I love every book she writes. They all just seem to get better and better!! There is so much in this book, so much emotion, so many feelings, that I just don’t know where to go with them, so I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book and read it for your own enjoyment!!
