A Promise to Protect

2nd book in the series, not as good as 1st. Nice story and the characters were okay, but the main female character in reality was pretty selfish. She is suppose to care greatly for her son, but all she does is care about herself. Time and time again people have to remind her that she needs to care about the safety of her son, that shouldn't have to be reminded to a normal person. The main male character I thought was written well. He is suppose to be a really good cop, but around his 1st love, he can't think... Continue Reading →

Great Book, possible the best I have read this year so far.

Spoilers

At 43% I think it is the lawyer who killed Dad. Abby somehow found out and was killed, and it might be because of a crush on Mom. Taylor is looking into her dad. Jonathan could be it but doesn't fit as well. Zeke is a distraction.
At 64% it is mentioned that Pete has a great memory and been to places Taylor has been. Would have been too young to kill Dad. Are we looking at 2 different criminals.

I say this because she did an awesome job giving little tid-bits here and there on the case. You couldn't see everything too early but enough to keep going along with it. There are some other story lines that are hinted at in the book and I hope they are carried over into the next books if not the actual story.

Nicely done book.

Spoiler -
I gave it lower than 4 stars only because of the type of people that were the criminals. I figured out about half way through that there were multiple criminals and that there was a stalker and a killer which were two different people. I didn't get that there were actually 3. That was fine, but at the end the 2nd stalker, which really was the 1st stalker, could ditch a seasoned-trained bodyguard (ex police) with ease, move through a huge church with security cameras. The killer could sneak up on a seasoned-trained bodyguard and actual police. This is unrealistic, I know it is a book, but if you go through the hassle of putting it in the real world, with real locations, with real police forces, it should be realistic criminals.
And they way that the bodyguards didn't do checks on things is amazing. They are suppose to be pretty good, but they don't even do vehicle sweeps. After someone tries to blow you up, you would think they are checking everything, but no. Even towards the end, they don't do a sweep of the boat even after there was an intruder on the property the night before. It was a real shame about these missteps because the rest of the book was great. But if you can't finish the book right then all the rest falls flat.

Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she's startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement--and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the…

It was good.   It was well laid out.  Days passed between paragraphs which made it realistic.  The slow uncovering was nice.  No trying to throw the audience off with weird stuff.  But with the way she did the story I don't think it would make sense with mis-directions.

Quick read.
