Recently I've read two LIS books that grabbed my attention from the first chapter and left me unable to put them down until I'd finished the last lines. As both stories feature the proud heroes who keep us safe--the first a Sheriff's deputy, the second a Navy Seal--they seemed like perfect choices for Memorial Day Weekend reading.
Memory of Murder, by Ramona Richards, took me on a wild ride--literally from the first scene when Lindsay is kidnapped and shoved in the back of a car. Who is trying to kill her? The secrets seem to be locked in Lindsay's childhood memories. Can Deputy Jeff Gage help her discover the answers in time to save her life? I admired this spunky heroine who worked so hard to accomplish her goals, and refused to let go of the dreams even when it puts her life--and those she loves--at risk. Memory of Murder is a fantastic read.
A Promise to Protect by Liz Johnson is a chilling page-turner filled with heart. Ashley Sawyer pours her life into running a shelter for battered women in an attempt to heal her own past wounds. When she begins receiving threats, her thoughts immediately go to the women she protects. She must do whatever it takes to keep them safe, even trusting Navy SEAL Matt Waterstone, her brother's best friend, with her secrets. Can Matt help Ashley find the man behind the threats? As Ashley is swept into danger beyond either of their suspicions, can Matt and his SEAL buddies rescue her before she disappears for good?
Have you ever struggled with falling head over heels for a fictional hero? Trust me--A Promise to Protect's Matt Watersone is one of those...
Have a blessed Memorial Day and happy reading!
