My rating is 4 out of 5 stars.
Kristi and her son Cody are struggling after the death of Kristi’s husband about a year ago. His cousin Zach has returned from serving as a SEAL. He has been in love with Kristi for years but kept quiet when he saw that Kristi loved his cousin. Now, Kristi and Cody need help and Zach can provide it. He proposes to Kristi out of the blue, stating that it would only be a marriage in name only. He can provide a home for them and insurance that they desperately need as Cody has a heart condition and needs a transplant soon. He also, throws in the fact that he will be deployed for a year shortly after they marry.
Zach returns from his deployment and more trouble than he could have imagined. Kristi and Cody meet him at the base and as they are driving home, three SUVs try to force their car off the road. They survive, but that is just the beginning of events that increase in frequency and severity. Could this be someone after Kristi since she was threatened at her job at a law firm? Kristi is sure an unhappy client is responsible. But Zach isn’t so sure.
Here is another good read from Love Inspired Suspense and Liz Johnson. I was so impressed with Zach’s willingness to keep his word to his cousin to take care of Kristi and Cody. He is a protector and acts with honor. This is a story with excitement, romance, and much more. I can’t say enough that these short stories are so worth reading. They are clean reads with faith and action and suspense woven together to make for an enjoyable time lost in the pages!
