Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn't heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn't mean he can get her--or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago--out of his head. When she calls out of the blue, it is with a strange request to protect her brother, Tony. When Tony dies just days later, Ben is charged with a different task--protecting Leigh and her nine-year-old son, TJ, from the killers. But how can Ben keep an eye on Leigh if she's doing everything in her power to avoid him? And could the secret that Leigh is keeping change Ben's life forever?
Suspense, intrigue, and a touch of romance make A Promise to Protect perfect for readers who like their stories with a hearty dose of mystery.

My take on this book:
Easy to connect with characters and a fast paced, page turning plot with plenty of suspense, a building romance and of course mystery made A Promise To Protect a book that wasn't easy to put down. Secrets and a second chance at love always hooks me and this book had those. Leigh Somerall is in danger and her old flame Ben Logan who is also the acting sheriff plans on doing whatever necessary in order to keep her and her son safe. Thing is she isn't making it easy.  Just what's going on, well that's what kept me flipping the pages to find out, the building tension was great, and the continual guessing of who the bad guy might be certainly kept me guessing. I loved the southern setting of the story, and vivid descriptions allowed me to easily visualise the setting. Ms. Bradley has captured the right blending of mystery, romance, suspense and faith to make for an enjoyable yet sometimes tense read.

A Promise To Protect is the second book in Patricia Bradley's Logan Point series and honestly I think this book was better than the first! While it can be read as a stand alone I would certainly recommend reading the first book in the series as well. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
