Safe by the Marshal's Side by Shirlee McCoy
HER LIFE IS ON THE LINE
For a year, U.S. marshal Hunter Davis has protected witness Annie Delacorte and her toddler daughter. But now, someone is determined to stop Annie from testifying against the men who killed her husband. To guard Annie, by-the-book Hunter will have to break a promise to himself: to not get emotionally involved. After all, he already cares more deeply than he ever imagined for the sweet family of two…a family he'll do anything to keep safe and sound by his side.
Witness Protection: Hiding in plain sight
My Review:Safe by the Marshal's Side by Shirlee McCoy
I enjoy reading Shirlee's books. This had good suspense about who was trying to kill the witness. Lots of action, likeable characters, cute kid, doing the right thing even though its hard. Also is a clean romance. I was sorry to see these characters go.
The pace is good, good dialog and action. We are never sure who all to trust. Who is leaking the witness where about.
Annie walked into her house and witnessed her husband's murder and if their gun had not jammed would have died also. Annie agreed to testify against the men she saw in her house. Now she is close to testifying someone has located her safe house. Leaving threats to her.
Annie's dreams of family died with her husband murder. She has a little girl she will protect at all costs. She found out her husband was lying to her.
Hunter's been protecting Annie for over a year. Now is close to the time for her testifying someone has been leaking the safe houses location. He trusts his team but not sure where the leak is coming from. He is getting close to Annie and her daughter. Where he generally does not get close to those he protects.
I had a good time reading Safe by the Marshal's Side. I will continue to read books by Shirlee McCoy in the future.
It does mention church and the bible. Hunter's has enjoyed escorting Annie to church and realizes how much he has missed it in his life.
I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
