Wren Cooke has everything she's ever wanted--a thriving career as one of LA's top interior designers and a home she loves. Business trips, mockups, and her demanding clientele keep her busy, almost too busy to notice Ethan Cooke Security's gorgeous Close Protection Agent, Tucker Campbell.
Jaded by love and relationships in general, Wren wants nothing to do with the hazel-eyed stunner and his heart-stopping grins, but Tucker is always in her way. When Wren suddenly finds herself bombarded by a mysterious man's unwanted affections, she's forced to turn to Tucker for help.
As Wren's case turns from disturbing to deadly, Tucker whisks her away to his mountain home in Utah. Haunted by memories and long-ago tragedies, Tucker soon realizes his past and Wren's present are colliding. With a killer on the loose and time running out, Tucker must discover a madman's motives before Wren becomes his next victim.

Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite Waiting for Wren by Cate Beauman is the fifth book in The Bodyguards of L.A. County Series. Wren Cooke, sister to Ethan Cooke, the man in charge of Ethan Cooke Security, is a headstrong woman, bound and determined to stand on her own two feet. Founder of Cooke Interiors, the designer is taken aback when she finds herself dealing with a mysterious stalker. Enter Tucker Campbell, a former police detective and bodyguard for her brother’s security company. Assigned to protect Wren, they end up in the mountains of Utah, hiding from Wren’s stalker. Desperately attracted to his boss’s sister, Tucker fights old memories as they stay in his family’s vacation home. As they do, sparks begin to fly between the pair, Wren fighting the attraction, but unable to resist Tucker. But with an escalating madman on the loose, will Tucker and Wren manage to make it out alive? Cate Beauman certainly has an amazing way of weaving romance in with suspense. Waiting for Wren was not about a woman falling into a man’s arms, but a battle of wills between two people unwilling to admit their feelings for each other and to let down those walls. Tucker was charming, but had depth as a character. Having to go to a place that caused him great pain in the past and facing his demons must have been very difficult for him. I liked that Wren was headstrong, putting the needs of others first, but not without her own workaholic flaws. Even though this is part of a series, it stands on its own, only proving to enhance the depth of the supporting characters. Like Miss Beauman’s other novels, I simply devoured Waiting for Wren, and will be seeking out the first books in the series to get the entire background on the characters.
Another great book by Cate Beauman. Waiting for Wren was the perfect rainy day read, enjoyable from beginning to end. The author writes with such ease, grabbing your interest from the very first page. The book has it all...drama, romance, suspence and humor. I hope there will be a book six in the series!
