Stranded with the suspect...
After rescuing a beautiful stranger from a seemingly random rock slide, a snowstorm leaves disabled veteran Adam Calloway no choice but to put her up at his remote mountain getaway. But when he realizes who Karen Smith is and why she's here, all he knows for sure is that he has to get rid of her... and fast. Because Karen wants to find out what really happened to her younger brother, killed in these mountains nine years ago. And if she solves the cold case, she'll destroy Adam's fragile sister whom he's vowed to protect with his life.
As Adam and Karen wait out the storm together, they care for Adam's sister and her child and face mysterious threats from the outside world. Why does Karen keep getting warning texts on her phone? Who would toss a brick through Adam's picture window? And what kind of maniac would try to set fire to a house with four people inside, one of them a vulnerable child?
Working together to keep everyone safe, Adam and Karen come to admire each other's strengths, and the two loners begin to fall in love. But Karen is getting closer to the truth that could put Adam's sister behind bars and leave her son without a mother. The threats keep escalating. And Adam starts to wonder if he can fulfill the vow to serve and protect that he made as a teenager at the Covenant School...and whether he really understands anything at all about what happened all those years ago...

Really enjoyed the read. Kept me interested.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. This is the first Christian suspenseful novel I have read, and I have to admit that I was a little nervous up front. There is some darkness to it and some difficult topics. However I thought the author did a great job of keeping my interest and making sure to include God in the story. Karen is trying to find out what happened to her brother that mysteriously died. The police reports claim it was a hunting accident, but Karen and her dying mother feel otherwise. So Karen travels to the middle of nowhere to find some answers. On her way there a huge rock starts falling straight for her car. It just so happens to man she is going to talk to is at the right place at the right time and rescues her. Although he seems like a knight in shining armor, he is harbor in some secrets. He takes her back to his place where he lives with his sister and nephew. And that's where the story truly begins. This book is full of suspense, love, secrets and surprises. I found myself reading whenever I had a spare moment just to find out what happened next. And just when I thought I had the plot figured out, the author threw in another twist I was not expecting and I loved that!! I think this first book in the Sacred Bond Guardians series has left me hungry for more!
