Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn’t heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn’t mean he can get her–or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago–out of his head. When she calls out of the blue, it is with a strange request to protect her brother, Tony. When Tony dies just days later, Ben is charged with a different task–protecting Leigh and her nine-year-old son, TJ, from the killers. But how can Ben keep an eye on Leigh if she’s doing everything in her power to avoid him? And could the secret that Leigh is keeping change Ben’s life forever?
Suspense, intrigue, and a touch of romance make A Promise to Protect perfect for readers who like their stories with a hearty dose of mystery. (Goodreads)

The mystery is well developed and carried on throughout the entire book. There are many twists and turns along the way and the clues take them down many different paths. At times I was afraid to turn the page for fear of what was about to happen.
This book had a little bit of everything:mystery, suspense, romance, and forgiveness. All of these elements were intertwined to make a great read. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted romantic suspense. This is the second book in the series but the first one that I have read. I had no problem knowing what was going on. I plan on reading book one as soon as I can.
