What a great adventure! I enjoyed the story line of a girl being a protector! Sometimes the women in these short romances can come across as helpless. This character is written as a strong woman who needs a little help not a helpless woman who canÃ¢ÂÂt take care of herself. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought the story was unique and the characters entertaining. I liked how the main characters of Ellie and Colt interacted with each other. It was believable that they started to like each other. Their conversations were well written and kept me reading to find out what would happen to them next. This book is part of the Guardians, Inc series. You do not have to read any of the others to enjoy this one. It is a great series though and I have enjoyed each one I have read. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a Christian romance that has plenty of suspense.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

Fun Christian Romantic Mystery
Ellie is a bodyguard hired to protect Winnie the head of a perfume company when Winnie begins receiving threatening letters. When Colt, Winnie's grandson comes home, sparks fly as they both try to keep Winnie from an unknown crazy.
This is a fun, quick read. The love story is fairly predictable, but the stalker, not so much. The characters are fun to meet and the setting is interesting. This is a fun, clean romance, so if you enjoy romance with a little kick of mystery and the added blessing of Christianity, then this one is for you. Enjoy!

One For Your Christmas Wish List
Margaret Daley has once again written a tremendous story filled with intrigue, suspense and some love thrown in to make for a chilling yet wonderful Christmas story. The setting is in the beautiful Colorado Mountains, the time is few days before Christmas.
Ellie St. James former well trained soldier, now employed as a bodyguard at Guardians, Inc. has been hired to guard the owner of Glamour Sensations, Mrs. Rachel Ã¢ÂÂWinnieÃ¢ÂÂ Winfield. Ellie has been secretly hired by Harold Jefferson, second in command at Glamour Sensations to protect Winnie from someone who has been sending threatening letters. All Winnie has been told Ellie is her new assistant.
Cole Winfield, the only grandson of Winnie, has a premonition that something is wrong at home so he leaves the ship he is stationed on as a marine biologist and heads for home.
Winnie is his only family and he wants to keep her around as long as possible since she is the only Mother he has ever known. When he arrives home he is shocked to be attacked by a gun-toting wild woman who is supposed to be WinnieÃ¢ÂÂs assistant. She is unlike any assistant Winnie has ever had, sheÃ¢ÂÂs not humble and quiet like the previous ones and he canÃ¢ÂÂt help but notice how beautiful she is. Colt knows something is up and he is determined to find out what!
The first night Ellie is guarding Winnie she hears someone coming up the stairs and she goes into fight mode only to find out the gorgeous man she just tackled is Mrs. WinfieldÃ¢ÂÂs grandson, Colt. Colt is extremely upset to see Ellie waving around a gun and giving him some silly story about how she lived in a bad neighborhood as a child and now always carries a gun with her. It seems Colt isnÃ¢ÂÂt buying her story, will Ellie have to come clean before the night is over and tell him the real reason she is there? Or will someone make good on their threat of harming Winnie before she has a chance to tell him?
This was a great story, it has 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. Margaret once again has written a story that you must add to your Christmas list.
I was given an ARC by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
