Perfect balance between suspense & romance
When I received this book, I was excited to start it and, once I had, it was extremely difficult to put down!
Following footsteps of Elle Philips, a politicians daughter and campaign manager, we she her first real interaction with Mark Denton in the worst-case scenario possible, a bank robbery. When Denton is hired to protect Elle, the two are thrown into one dire circumstance after another. This time together with Denton is exactly what Elle is not looking for - close proximity with a handsome man.
Get ready for an action packed, adrenaline laced ride with Elle and Denton! No only will you be kept guessing until the end, you will also find yourself drawn to the complex characters Christy has created in Elle and Denton. They come alive and their story will compel you just as the robbers plot will keep you guessing to the very end.
It's not very often that you can find a book that keeps surprising you, but Key Witness is that book! You won't be able to put this down and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense laced with sweet romance.
I received a free copy of this book for review purposes, but was under no obligation to read the book or post a review. I do so under my own motivation and the opinions I have expressed in this review are honest and entirely my own.

If you enjoy romantic suspense, this book is well written and well worth your time to read. Key Witness is the first of Christy Barritt's Security Experts series with Harlequin's Love Inspired Suspense.
Elle Phillips watches in horror as a bank robbery becomes an apparently senseless murder case as well. Her quick thinking in using the robber's cell phone brings the police, but it also seems to make her the target of further incidences.
Her wealthy father, Senator Phillips, hires another witness to the robbery/murder to safeguard his precious daughter, Mark Denton, a security expert.
Sparks fly--between Mark and Elle, that is. Suspicions and deadly encounters abound.

Elle Philips and Mark Denton star in this brilliant suspense story. She is the daughter of a wealthy politician, he a security contractor and former Navy SEAL. Christy Barritt writes perfect suspense. This book will keep you on your toes, even if youÃ¢ÂÂre not trying to figure out who the bad guy is. Every page is riveted with twists and turns and that kept me turning pages. As the back cover reads, itÃ¢ÂÂs Ã¢ÂÂa deadly game of cat and mouse.Ã¢ÂÂ

Brimming with suspense and romance
This is the second Christy Barritt book I've read, and I was not disappointed. Key Witness had plenty of the romance I love, and was jam-packed full of suspense from the very first sentence.
I read it straight through. The thought of putting it down never crossed my mind and I look forward to her next novel.
