Defender for Hire by Shirlee McCoy
Heroes For Hire series
I have been happy reading Shirlee McCoy's books, so far have enjoyed them all that I have read. Defender for Hire is a fast paced
story. It starts off strong and keeps grabbing your attention. It is a clean read.
The plot is good. Every year for the past five years Tessa is sent a black rose. She has moved 4 times and she is always found. This year she gets the black rose but she also gets a package at work and it moves.
Tessa has been a widow for five years. She works at Centennial physical therapy. She has a new patient that she is working on today.
Seth Sinclair is a former army ranger. He will be on desk duty till he can get his arm back into shape. He does not complain when his arm is in pain. Seth is also a widower. His wife died while he was over seas on a tour of duty. He felt guilty for not keeping her safe.
Tessa while she is up front to get Seth set up to see her twice a week and to print off the exercises she wants him to work on at home. She gets a package. It was delivered not mailed and no idea who would send it to her. While she is holding it the package moves. Seth is right their and opens it. He tells her he will take care of it for her.
Tessa out running with her dog has shots fired at her and her dog is hurt. Tessa was almost home so she was able to carry dog and finds Seth at her house waiting for her. She was also choked by someone grabbing her from behind and was told to remember. Tessa has kept a secret for five years about what happened in Kenya on a mission there.
Lots of action, drama, secrets, some faith and falling in love make a good story. Plus characters that you like and want things to work out for them.
I will read other books by Shirlee McCoy in the future. I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest opinion of it by Netgalley.
