Private Eye Protector by Shirlee McCoy Book 5 in the Heroes for Hire Series
Rayne Sampson, sister to Jonas from book 4, wakes up in the hospital confused. Last she knew of she had lived in Phoenix. When Chance Richardson comes in her room she thinks his eyes are familiar but that is all. Ends up she was in a car accident and it wiped out the memories of the past seven weeks.

The title is perfect. Chance Richardson is a private eye who saves a woman who worked in his firm from an automobile wreck. He does not figure on becoming her protector.

Rayne Sampson moved from Arizona to start over. After the car accident she cannot remember why. She is guardian of a friend's baby, Emma. Her friend died of a drug overdose which turned out to be murder. She asked Rayne to care for her baby if anything happened to her.

This is a book hard to lay down. Suspense, murder, faith and l

I've always loved the wonderful combination of faith, love, and suspense in Love Inspired Suspense books. This book did not disappoint me either.

Rayne fears for her life while she can't remember who she is running from. Rayne's love and dedication to Emma, her friend's daughter whom Rayne is raising after her friend's death, is very heart-warming. She has a set of three rules. But given how charismatic and protective Chance is, it is inevitable that they will be broken, especially the rule about

Here's one of my favourite statements in the book:

'"It's not confidence. It's faith."


She'd always thought she had plenty of faith, but over the years her passion for the things of God had faded. School, job, life, relationships --they'd all vied for her attention. Church had become one more thing to do. Prayer something she did quickly and in passing. God was there. She knew it. That had become enough.

It shouldn't have.'

What a great twists and turns suspense book. Every time I thought things were solved something else happened. I really enjoyed this book. I actually read it in two days, I just didn't have time to get on here and review it. Definitely worth the reads. This is my second Heroes for Hire series book I've read and the were both great. Great to see you can have a Christian book and still have it been exciting!

Rayne's foremost thought is baby Emma is in danger...and someone is trying to kill her. Chance appoints himself as her protector. Her memory gradually returns in small flashbacks... Considering her ex fiance acted like such a jerk, I don't blame her for being slightly gun-shy around men.
Without giving away the ending, that Michael jerk got what he deserved..

This was a pretty good book. It was a romance, but there were some things I didn't like. It was like she didn't know how to write in full sentences. She liked to use phrases and in some parts, it was like I wanted her to "get on with the story, already."

While I didn't like Chance's name (especially for two people afraid to take a chance on love), I did find his and Rayne's relationship compelling. This is especially true since they didn't forget about Rayne's daughter Emma.

I think that this was a great book. Rayne and Emma went through so much. Chance and his mother were so loving and understanding. I was happy that Rayne and Chance could allow themselves to love again.

Not a bad read, and no profanity or gratuitous sex scenes. In fact, no sex scenes at all unless they went on behind the scenes, which i doubt.

Loved it - great suspense and romance. Love stories that have tenderhearted men in them, and that include God's influence.

great store
A very simple romance/mystery ....easy that was easy to figure out after reading 25 pages or so. Good light reading as a buffer against longer, more involved books.

I enjoyed this book, I read it basically in one day. Easy read but it was fun and I had to keep turning pages to figure out what happened. A nice distraction from the car ride.

This book overall was okaaaay. I just found the back and forth struggle between the two main characters of all the reasons why they should not fall in love with each other rather annoying. That particular theme basically made up the bulk of the story line along with someone trying to kill Rayne. All along I knew who the perpetrator was going to be so no surprise there.
My complete reaction: Meh.
