-it was very anti-climatic.
-could have probably used another edit.
-character mood swings...ugh.
-kudos to the author for getting her characters to recognize that their relationship has popped into existence out of thin air in und
The idea of being a FBI special agent or any law enforcement personnel for that matter is a pretty risky job. Not only are you putting yourself in danger repeatedly but there are times when the life of your family is threatened also.

I found it very nice that some of the characters from Christmas Haven were in Small Town Protector - it was great to find out what was happening in their lives.

A very quick read and fun for a camping trip. But really hokey and bad writing.

Accused of being an eternal optimist, I was born and raised in the Midwest and migrated to the Pacific Northwest a few years ago. I began spinning tales of intrigue and adventure when I was in grade school, and wrote my first book when I was eleven — a thriller that ended with a mysterious phone call the reader never heard!

My college sweetheart and I have been married for over 20 years and are ble
