Special Agent Meghan Connors’ dream of one day protecting the president of the United States is about to come true. Only one assignment stands in her way. After the vice president’s rebellious daughter is threatened, Meghan is assigned to her protective detail on a secluded ranch in West Texas. Unfortunately, working with Special Agent in Charge Ash Zinders may be as tough as controlling her charge. Ash has a reputation for being critical and exacting, and he’s also after the same promotion as Meghan. But when the threats escalate and security on the ranch is breached, it becomes clear this isn’t the work of a single suspect—it’s part of a sophisticated plan that reaches deeper and higher than anyone imagined. And only Ash and Meghan can put the pieces together before it’s too late.
My Take: This author knows how to marry action, romance and mystery. This story has all these elements and none of them suffer.
Ash and Meghan give us a window into the world of the disciplined and dedicated agents who protect our most important politicians and their families. What they go through helps turn those stone-faced guardians into people we can admire and appreciate more because the author showed us a glimpse into their world (even if it is with her characters).
I loved the journey the characters take through this story. Nearly every single one of them evolves somehow from the beginning of the book to when the last page is turned. I think that's true to life. We continue to grow, learn, and become more of who God intended us to be.
This was a tense, roller coaster ride of a book. It was a lot of fun to read and I hope you'll add it to your list. I want to thank Tyndale publishers for providing this book in exchange for my honest review.
