But now she's receiving threatening notes and phone calls and is convinced it's connected to the mafia and her ex. She contacts Nick and within hours her son is kidnapped and she finds herself spending her time with Nick trying to find her son. Lots of action and questions about the mafia connection or if it might possibly be connected ...more

wonderful follow-up to "Undercover CowBoy" and just as exciting and full of suspense!!! as well as inspiration and Glory for the Lord. Looking forward to your next book, Laura. Thank you for sharing your God given talent of writing with us. May God continue His Blessings. ...more

The relationship between Rachel and Nick felt natural, but the actual bad guys were not foreshadowed enough and came as too much of a shock at the end. I did like how Rachel's son Joey helped unite the couple. ...more

Good for Vacation read

Entertaining, but a very familiar story line. Girl in trouble. Detective saves her. They fall in love. Not particularly in depth on character development.

I remember Nick Butler and Rachel Simon from Laura Scott's previous books, and I'm glad they got their own story in HER MISTLETOE PROTECTOR.

When Rachel's son Joey is kidnapped, she'll do anything to bring him back. Selling all shares of her company to raise the ransom of one million dollars seems a small price to pay for her little boy's life. But she knows she needs Detective Butler's help for Joey to return home safe and sound, as well as to catch the villain. After losing his own family, Nick

She had started to get threatening letters and just before her son Joey was kidnapped she had called on the detective that had helped previously with her ex husband's case. Problem was he wasn't there when the accident happened.
The kidnappers demand a millions and it's up to her to get it fast and s

Rachel Simon's son is kidnapped and held for ransom. She turns to the only person she can trust as he has helped her before: Detective Nick Butler. Trying to find her son and answering the demands of the kidnappers, Rachel and Nick race to stay alive.

It was a slow plot but it kept me guessing.

When my wife suggested I read these "love inspired suspense" novels, I was reluctant, as I felt they would be nothing more than excuses for hitting me repeatedly with trite fundamentalism and bad theology. I have been surprised. However, this book was the book I feared. This was a religious tract dressed up as a not very good story, platitudinous and simplistic. ...more

It took me so long to read this book because I just couldn't get into it. Suspense isn't my style and I failed to see the chemistry between the main characters. ...more
