This inspirational book is a lovely story.
Glory decides to move to Piedmont Island and use the property she'd inherited to build a retreat, a place where her teenage brother Logan will come to heal after his rehabilitation from a drug addiction. Hiring Mac, a disabled former FBI agent, now contractor, seems to be the best thing that could happen for her and they hit it off right from the beginning...until they find a dead body tied up to her dock. The mystery begins as all kinds of setbacks happen, including Mac's place getting trashed, Glory being stalked and threatened by a killer to where she needs constant protection. But the church-going community step up and provide a safety net. During these hardships, Glory has her faith to sustain her and the wonderful friends she's made. Unfortunately, due to a past incident, Mac has pushed away from his beliefs and continuously fights his needs for Glory and the church. This slow-paced romance builds to a blockbuster end and Ms. Albert ties up all the loose threads perfectly. I enjoyed reading her work and look forward to the next Anne Albert release.

This well-written novel sizzles with romance and suspense. "Defending Glory" has a complex plot with many twists and turns as the danger level keeps rising around the main characters like flood waters. What a well-told thriller with memorable characters.

"Defending Glory" by Anne K. Albert is an intriguing mystery with a dash of romance.
Former FBI agent, Mac McKeown, anxious to put the past behind him, has moved to northern Minnesota to start a new life for himself as a general contractor.
When Glory Palmer asks him to renovate her grandfather's cottage and supervise the building of a retreat, Mac has no idea what he's in for. Not only does he fall in love with his new client but their paths intersect in a way that he could've never suspected.
I highly recommend "Defending Glory."

Ex-FBI agent Mac McKeown survived when his partner didn't and he leaves the agency, moving to Minnesota to start over. He begins work there as a general contractor, but one day everything changed in his plans for a "normal" secluded life. He takes a job working for Glory Palmer to do renovations on the cabin on her property, as well as start working on building a Christian retreat center for her. While checking out the property, they discover the body of Mac's nemesis, along with threats against Glory's life. This sets the stage for a thrilling roller coaster ride that readers won't soon forget.

Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres to read as well as write and Ms. Albert's telling of this tale did not disappoint. From the very beginning, the romantic tension between Mac and Glory had me hooked. Their tender romance mixed well with the suspenseful plotline; they went hand in hand. By the time the story ended, I was so drawn into the characters' lives that I felt like I personally knew Mac and Glory--such personable, likeable characters. Ms. Albert knows how to create despicable characters as well. Chills will crawl up and down your spine as you read this story; you won't be able to put this book down until you find out who the villain really is.

Along with the wonderful character development, Ms. Albert knows how to give you the details you want and not bore you with unimportant ones that drag the story down. You will get a bird's-eye view of the town, but think of this bird also as a fly on the wall--because Ms. Albert's ability to get into each character's head is amazing. You get a true sense of who each character really is and you see how God moves in their lives. She answers all your questions and the only question you will have at the end is...when will her next novel come out? Definitely a keeper on my bookshelf.

Well written story. Ms Albert has a great sense of location and takes you to the great lakes with her beautiful descriptions. The story is well told and the characters are credible and people you might expect to meet in a small town.

Now this is romantic suspense at its best!

Defending Glory is a wonderful combination of romance - and who dunnit!

Mac is the perfect wounded soul. He has so much compassion for others, where's his heart on his sleeve, yet carries the world on his shoulders. As Glory and Pastor are the witnesses he needs, God gently draws him into the fold.

It's readily apparent in hindsight how God's hand has guided them through everything, protecting them from harm, and leading them to where they need to be - just like He works quietly behind the scenes in all our lives.

And Ms. Albert has a wonderful way of leaving the reader in the dark - with just a hint of light - to keep you wondering right until the end.

I loved it and can't wait to read more of her work!

Good faith based mystery. There were a couple things I wished had been addressed. There was no explanation for Glory's parents change of heart. I liked reading a book with no cursing or Gracie sex scenes.
