Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Love Under Fire #1
Title: Witness in the Dark
Author: Allison B. Hanson
Publisher: Amara (Suspense), Entangled Publishing
Published: November 27th, 2017
This is, quite simply, brilliant! I thoroughly enjoyed this action packed suspense from start to finish and have no hesitation in highly recommending it.
After inadvertently witnessing a young woman being callously murdered, Samantha Hutchinson realises that a prominent politician is the perpetrator and identifies him to the police. To keep her safe, she’s put into the witness protection programme but dangers still lurk and she ends up endeavouring to stay alive with the help of Deputy Marshal Garrett McKendrick. The two are in enough danger from the politician’s influential friends, unsure who they can trust but when mutual attraction flares between them, too, life is sure going to get more complicated for them both!
This is a fast paced page turner that I didn’t want to put down until I had finished reading it. It has well developed characters, a plot with so many twists and turns it leaves you unsure which way to turn next and is an engrossing, highly entertaining read. There are plenty of surprises along the way in this enthralling story – but you’ll have to read it yourself to discover just what they are! I’ll definitely be looking out for more from this author in future!
I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Deputy Marshal Garrett McKendrick does not get involved with witnesses he’s tasked to protect. Especially when his boss has a very personal reason for keeping Samantha Hutchinson alive. Can you say off limits?
But as Garrett battles to keep Sam safe from the powerful and influential people out to silence her—permanently—he finds she’s strong, feisty, and willing to risk everything to tell the truth. And totally irresistible.
Losing everything you know and love might just be worth it to meet an amazing man like Garrett. But when Sam learns he has been keeping secrets from her—big ones—she’s convinced his affectionate words were all for the sake of the job. She sends him packing. But can her new protective detail be trusted? The last team betrayed her to the enemy…
Garrett isn’t about to take any chances. Not with the woman who has stolen his heart.
