I got a bunch of book this afternoon and this one sounded good that I had to start
reading right away. It did not let me down. It has strong female characters that are tough but smart. A romance that doesn't make you blush, Mystery that keeps you guessing to the end. That leaves you smiling at the end.
Christmas Stalking is the fourth in the Guardians, Inc series. The first one that I have read but hopefully not the last.
Ellie St. James is a bodyguard but is in disguise as assitant even from the one she is protecting.Rachel “Winnie” Winfield’s is the 73 year old who is in charge of the company and she is also one of the chemists who is getting ready to bring out a new line. She is living on the ranch when she hears someone coming up the stairs that had got through the dogs. She gets her gun and finds a stranger coming up the stairs and thier is a tussle for the gun and he is on top of her when Winnie picks up the gun and points it at her.
Colt Winfield is supposed to be at sea for his job but came home unexpected. When Winnie had distracted Ellie she had to come up with an excuse to why she has a gun. Winnie's lawyer did not want to let her know that she had been recieving hateful letters. Harold brought her out another gun after hers got put in the safe.
The next night the dogs were barking and Ellie had another gun going to check the comotion and Colt saw her with a different gun. She told him she would explain later but stay with his grandmother. Colt did not listen.
Ellie found the fence had been cut and a mountain lion was about to come through and the dogs were quite. Colt was behind her with a speargun he grabbed after hearing the mountain lion. He stayed to guard the fence from the mountain lion. Ellie called the police,and lawyer and made sure Winnie was safe and no intruder was in the house. Winnie saw Ellie come out of Colt's room with a pair of shoes and another gun.
The action did not stop till the end. I guessed one part of the mystery but not all of it. Did not put the book down till I finshed it.
I would like to read the other books that Margaret has written.
I was given this ebook to read for free in exchange of honest reviews from Netgalley.
