Called to Protect is reminiscent of the TV show Blue Bloods, but this book is even better that the TV show! In the Blue Justice series, five of the six St. John siblings are involved in law enforcement, and their mother is the chief of police. I love the family dynamic between the six St. John siblings and their parents and how they still get together for family dinners despite their busy schedules.
Chole St. John and her K-9 partner Hank are part of a task force to help find Deputy US Marshal Blake MacCallum's kidnapped daughter. Their search for answers with the assistance of other members of law enforcement leads them both into danger, and Blake and Chloe don’t know who they can trust. Could there be a chance for romance for Chloe and Blake?
Called to Protect deals with difficult content, including human trafficking, and portrays the horrors those women faced in an honest and heart wrenching manner, while intricately weaving the spiritual elements into the novel. Called to Protect focuses on the themes of forgiveness and how God is always present in our lives. The St. John family's strong belief in God helps them face the difficult situations they encounter in their daily lives. As Blake MacCallum said in the novel, "Life is short and we need to grab on to the good times and let the bad ones fade away."
Called to Protect is highly recommended for fans of romantic suspense, and readers who enjoy novels by authors such as Dani Pettrey and Lynn H. Blackburn. I know readers will fall in love with the St. John family just like I did. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series when Brady St. John gets his own story!
I purchased a copy of this book and was under no obligation to write a review. All opinions expressed are mine.
Called to Protect is not a light read as it deals with the heavy topic of human trafficking. However the author takes us right to the edge of the harsh realities of human trafficking without bringing it over the edge. It was a thoughtful and insightful read. I loved the humanness of the St. John family...they are relatable in their faith struggles. I love seeing their interactions and love for family.
Chloe St John takes lead in this book with her German Shepherd K-9. She is my fav character so far. Strong and determined and yet, loving and devoted. I’m in awe of her and want to be her when I grow up :-) US Marshall Blake’s daughter is kidnapped and will die if he doesn’t kill a judge. They have to work together with their whole team to find her. As they uncover a human trafficking network, it’s a race against time to save his daughter, reduce others, and possibly find her cousin Penny.
Riveting, inspiring suspense with a focus on a tough topic that needs addressing. Just don’t read the first chapter before bed, like I did! You won’t be able to sleep until you read more.
Highly recommended. 5 Plus stars!
If you like the type of book this is your going to like this one because it hits all the requisite story beats. Strong female lead? Check. Handsome wounded/tender yet masculine man to fall in love with? Check. CheckHappy ending? Check?
I’m awarding bonus points for a reasonably well researched description of law enforcement and a killer opening hook. But to be clear this book is pure formula. Outside of its genre it is a firm 2 stars. That’s not a criticism. Books like this have a specific audience, like my wife, if your part of that group enjoy. If your a dabbler like me hoping to find a hidden treasure in this genre this isn’t it.
