After earning the wrath of her brother, a notorious drug kingpin, Adriana Garcia has been in deep hiding on a remote Texas llama ranch. But when Texas Ranger Brent McCord manages to find her—leading her brother’s men right to her—Adriana discovers she’s a suspect in the murder of a border patrol agent. The handsome, principled ranger, whose life she once saved during a dangerous sting operation, intends to bring her in for questioning…and protection. To prove her innocence, Adriana has to trust Brent with the truth, her heart and her life. Because her brother and his henchman have the ranch surrounded, and Brent’s all that’s keeping this Christmas from turning deadly.

Melissa P5 Stars Out Of 5Third Book in The Texas Ranger Holidays SeriesFebruary 5, 2018Melissa PQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This is the third and final (I think) book in the Texas Ranger Holidays series! It was nice having a book series center around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day! Honestly, I couldn't put the books down. I'm hoping that they write more Texas Ranger novels. Even though, the mystery arcs were all tied up at the end, I would love to know what happens to some of the other Rangers. =)
This review is specifically about Texas Christmas Defender by Elizabeth Goddard. I'm a big time fan and love every single one of her books. This one didn't let me down. It's exactly what you expect when you pick up one of her novels! Very well written with a mixture of suspense, romance, hope, and Jesus in there or as Adriana would say Jesucristo!
The book picks up where the previous story leaves off. You don't have to read the first 2 novels to understand what is going on, but I think you should. They are both great books and there is a story arc that starts in Thanksgiving Protector by Sharon Dunn and concludes in Texas Christmas Defender. So it's a good idea to read all 3 in a row.
This book starts off with Texas Ranger Brent McChord finally tracking down the sister of one of Mexico's most deadly Cartel leaders Adriana Garcia. She has run across the border to Texas to hide from her brother and his cartel. This isn't the first time these two have met. Two years ago when Brent was on a mission in Mexico, Adriana saved his life by hiding him and helping him get away at her own personal risk. During these 2 years, both of them have often thought about the other and their brief encounter. Although a lot of mystery surrounds whether Adriana is bad news or really trying to turn her life around, Brent can't fight the feelings that he has had for the last 2 years. And neither can Adriana. Can these two prove her innocence, survive, and capture Rio Garcia to lead a safe and happy life together? Maybe they can with a little help from Brent's fellow Texas Rangers and God!
I don't want to give too much away. It was a great read! Very Suspenseful! And I appreciate that there was an epilogue at the end! Those are my favorite kinds of stories. I love getting to know what happens to these characters afterwards. Big props for that! I think if you are into Christian Suspense then you will really enjoy this book. I know I sure did! =)

Adriana and Brent share an action-packed tale that kept me turning the pages in anticipation of what would happen next.

ValriVernonia, ORAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Drug Lord's Sister Escape!January 6, 2018ValriVernonia, ORAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When a book is about a notorious Mexican drug cartel, you know it's going to be action-packed and very fast-paced! Elizabeth Goddard sure knows how to write a book just like that! I had a hard time putting this one down. I actually felt like I was an observer in this story, cheering the "good guys" on and hoping that none of them got killed! Those drug cartels are ruthless and the author does a very good job alluding to that fact without actually describing it so we don't have to go into the gory details of it. I admired Adriana, the main heroine who was the sister of the head of cartel. She didn't want to be involved with the cartel in Mexico so she escaped that life and hid out at a llama farm in the U.S. However, she always had to be on her guard because she knew that her brother could find her at any time. I know this is like real life because you never really get out of a drug cartel - they always find you! Meet Texas Ranger, Brent McCord! He manages to find her through cryptic clues in a letter anonymously sent to him. Together they decide to take a stand against Adriana's brother, Rio. There are other Rangers involved and many cartel members, of course. I really liked how Adriana felt she needed to, at one point, talk to her brother face-to-face just one more time and say some things. That take a lot of bravery. The author included many situations that were realistic and terrifying which made my heart race as if I were truly there!
I definitely recommend this book. Now I want to read the other books in this series!
