"Bradley's second Logan Point novel is well plotted . . . the mystery is engaging and will keep readers involved with the tale." ---RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
From the Back Cover
In a steamy small town riddled with broken promises, one woman's secret could change everything.
Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn't heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn't mean he can get her--or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago--out of his head. When she calls out of the blue, it is with a strange request to protect her brother, Tony. But all too soon, Ben is charged with a different task--protecting Leigh from the people after her brother. With Leigh doing everything in her power to avoid Ben, it's no easy task. And the secret she is keeping just may change their lives forever.
"A taut story of mistakes and betrayal, a mother's fierce love, revenge and danger--and the redeeming wonders of faith and love."--Lorena McCourtney, author of the Cate Kinkaid Files and the Ivy Malone Mysteries
"Old secrets, second chances at love, and a skillfully crafted small-town suspense. You will fall in love with Ben and Leigh and cheer them on as they fight for their happy ending. I'm making room on my shelf for all of Patricia Bradley's novels!"--Susan May Warren, bestselling and award-winning author of When I Fall in Love

I felt that Tom was unnecessarily treated poorly by his family and by Leigh, as if he couldn't hear or understand what they were saying about him right in front of him. He was regarded with a lack of patience, treated as if he wasn't important, and the simple solutions that would have made it easier to communicate with him were entirely overlooked, with the exception of those implemented by the little boy. Leigh was straight up rude to him throughout the story, which made it hard to like her character. This was never really resolved by the end of the story.
I also didn't like how Leigh used such illogical "reasons" to justify keeping her secret. She knew Ben and his family were good, kind people and had no reason to base her poor decisions on their character, yet she still tried to do so. Her lack of integrity combined with her faulty reasoning for keeping her secret were frustrating. In the end, she never did do the right thing herself. She just wasn't a very likeable character at all. She lacked good judgment too (disregarding police advice multiple times without reason, even when doing so put her son in danger, etc.).
The end of the book wrapped up quickly with a tidy bow and Leigh finally made one good decision at the end of the book.
Overall, the book was just okay. It's hard to connect with a character or feel invested in her when she makes poor decisions, is disrespectful to elders and public service officers, and doesn't reflect much sense of integrity.
This one was a bit disappointing for me.
What made it good: the story line was good and really drew me in, I wasn't able to completely figure out who the other "bad guy" was until the end (very unusual for me), and I most of the characters were fairly relatable.
What didn't work: The female main character- she irritated me so much that I ended up skipping several sections of the book. She was obstinate to the point of being ridiculous. If your life & your child's life were in danger, would you really refuse police protection? Also, some of the dialogue felt a bit forced or stilted. There were several times it just wasn't written the way people actually speak, which I found a little distracting.
Thank you for vulgar free book!
No need whatsoever for any need to use bad language or explicit sex to make it a bit more enjoyable to read. In fact I would choose this kind of book every time I read one. I would recommend to. Everyone!
as the store in this book is basically only in this book with minor referenced to persons in first book.
I read the first book and got this one because I liked the way the author wrote.
As the story develops you are kept in the book trying to figure out what is next so it makes you
want to keep reading. Thought the story was very interesting and have just gone to get book 3
to see what the author develops in that book
