About The Book: "What makes you think I'm hiding something?" Ellie busied herself pouring the hot water into a mug. "I get the feeling there's something in your past you don't like to talk about," Colt murmured. "I didn't know full disclosure about all details of my life was necessary for me to get this job. Your grandmother seems satisfied." He dipped his head in a curt nod. "Winnie is a great judge of character." Meaning he had his doubts? One of the reasons she liked being a bodyguard was that she could blend into the background. She kept a lock on her past-a past she didn't want to take out and reexaminie. "If you must know, the short version of my life so far is-" "That's okay-I'm sorry. I didn't mean to bring up something painful." "What do you mean?" "To make sure Winnie was in good hands." She stared into his light blue eyes. "She's in good hands. When I do a job, I do it one hundred percent."

My Thoughts On The Book: Margaret Daley is quite a wordsmith and has written a wonderful story.The book is filled with intrigue, suspense and love thrown in to make for a chilling and wonderfully different kind of Christmas story. The setting is in the beautiful Colorado Mountains, the story takes place is shortly before Christmas.This was a great story.It was laced with just the right amount of suspense to make you sit on the edge of your seat from start to finish and it certainly has enough romance to make your heart skip a beat or two. I did not want to put this book down.I plan to read more by Margaret Daley.She definitely caught my attention.
