Review: Protecting Her Daughter by Lynette Eason

Exciting Romantic Suspense

Widowed Zoe Collier escaped to the rural town of Wranglers Creek after her daughter was almost kidnapped outside their Nashville home, and after her car was almost run off the road. But it seems that whoever or whatever was after nine-year-old Sophia back home is still chasing her.

Handsome local veterinarian Aaron Starke is attracted to the pretty widow and is pleased to have plenty of excuses to drop by the property she is farm-sitting (if that's a word). But he doesn't expect a simple trip to drop off some medicine and check on a pregnant cow to turn into a hostage situation.

The style of Love Inspired novels is always a little different to longer full-length titles. This can be an advantage and a disadvantage. It makes them quick to read, but I sometimes feel like the writing lacks complexity, because the shorter word count means there isn't scope for a lot of character development or description. On the other hand, it does mean there is plenty of focus on the main plot, and less sidetracking.

I found the beginning of Protecting Her Daughter to be a little shaky (although full of tension), but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. The writing was very good, the characters excellent, and I really got into the suspense: who is after Zoe and Sophia? Why?

Protecting Her Daughter is the third book in the Wrangler's Corner series. I've read the first (The Lawman Returns) but not the second (Rodeo Rescuer), but was easily able to read Protecting Her Daughter as a standalone.

Thanks to Love Inspired Suspense and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
