Fantastic wrap-up to the Task Force miniseries. We met Bailey in an earlier series where she and Spencer clashed and again in this series as the victim who didn't end up dead. Now she is the only one who can identify the rapist and testify against him. There are a lot of people who aren't sure that she's up to it and fear that she will chicken out. She's determined to do it and makes sure that Spencer knows it. With the rapist's accomplice still on the loose Spencer's job is to make sure Bailey...more
Another great read by Julie Miller 4-1/2 stars. I had a few minor issues so I did not give it 5 (I got really tired of reading the word coat, a bit too much internal thinking they could not be together before even trying, & I wanted the villains to suffer more..sorry must be bloodthirsty!)

I love Julie's books & all the series of the Kansas City police & love catching up with characters from previous books. Spencer has been in several so it was nice to finally get his story. I liked...more

I loved this series of books. Each book was a stand-alone, so it didn’t matter if you read them out of order or not.

This book was very well written. I loved the emotions, action, suspense, and romance.

Bailey was brutally raped. She is the only victim that can testify against him. She comes from a wealthy family. It seems like everyone is handling her with kid gloves. No one thinks she is strong enough to stand trial. I was amazed at how strong, and brave she was. Bailey was facing her own emoti...more
Julie Miller’s Yuletide Protector wraps up The Precinct: Task Force miniseries nicely.

After a year-long search for the Rose Red Rapist, he was finally caught and put behind bars in the previous novel. Now it’s time to make those charges stick. And for that, the star witness—Bailey Austin—is the key. Of course, being a witness doesn’t come without its strings attached. Neither does the fact that the cleaner—the rapist’s accomplice—is still in the wind. Enter our hero! Who better than our lead de...more
I very much enjoyed "Yuletide Protector" the last book in "The Precinct Task Force" Series. We meet Bailey in one of the first books in the series. She is raped by "The Red Rose Rapist". Bailey is the only one to survive the rape attacks. The rapist wears a mask. Bailey recognized him from his voice and eyes. Spencer, a cop, protects Bailey. A Lot happens before the trial. We also find out who "The Cleaner Up" person is, after she kidnaps Bailey. Ending is all happy.

A detective on the fast-track can't afford to let his attraction to his witness careen out of control, and especially because of his past. An heiress needs to prove she can do things on her own, so depending on a man isn't exactly her priority. Except that the rapist she helped put behind bars forces her to do just that. And The Cleaner seems intent on making sure she isn't alive to testify. A gripping tale by Julie Miller.
Brenda Rumsey
Strong characters and non-stop action keep you turning the pages on Julie Miller's newest Intrigue. Our heroine has more than one reason to be looking over her shoulder and thinking about her protector makes her feel much more than safe. To seek his protection is she willing to risk her heart?
Loved reading this story and watching a woman finding her strength and her hope for a "happy ever after".
Yuletide Protector is the sixth and last book in "The Precinct Task Force" series. The only surviving victim of "The Red Rose rapist" is ready to testify against the rapist. Before it goes to trail a lot happens. She needs protecting. "The Cleaner Up" goes after Bailey. Spencer is a cop and protects her. They still get at Bailey. A K-9 dog tracks them down. Very good book.

I loved this book. It is part of a long series by Julie Miller and I love series books. I love reconnecting with known characters. While this is part of a series it can easily be read as a stand a lone book. The characters are complicated and both have issues that they need to work through. Their issues are best overcome with each other. Julie Miller doesn't disappoint this was an engaging and quick read because you don't want to put it down. I can't wait for the next installment.
Uh Huh… the criminal justice system does not work that fast.

Lessee… our h was victimized by the serial creep du jour about a year ago apparently. An unspecified amount of time has passed since the creep was arrested trying to victimize the h in the last book. He's now going to trial? Eh?

And then there's the Cleaner. They know she's female and…every female the creep has an association with isn't being watched?

Of course, after the DA assures the h that nobody will know her identity 'til the trial,...more
