About the Author
An Army brat turned Floridian, Hallee finally settled in central Kentucky with her family so she could enjoy the beautiful changing seasons. She enjoys the roller- coaster ride thrills that life with a National Guard husband, a teenage daughter, and two elementary age sons delivers.
When not penning novels, she blogs about all things cooking and homemaking at Hallee the Homemaker™ dot com (www.halleethehomemaker.com). Her passion for cooking spurred her to launch a whole food, real food ""Parody"" cookbook series. In addition to nutritious, Biblically grounded recipes, readers will find that each cookbook also confronts some controversial aspect of secular pop culture.
Hallee loves coffee, campy action movies, and regular date nights with her husband. Above all else, she loves God with all her heart, soul, mind, and strength; has been redeemed by the blood of Christ; and relies on the presence of the Holy Spirit.

I had never read anything by this author, but really enjoyed this book. Doctor Ruth Burnette has been dating boxer Victor Kovalev and one night witnesses Victor’s father commit murder. The father knows that Ruth is a possible witness and in trying to remove her from the scene, has Ruth’s twin sister killed instead. Ruth had already gone to the police and is transferred to WITSEC until the trial. Ruth is dealing with grief and guilt over the death of her sister and unsure of Victor’s part in her sister’s death. While trying to stay hidden, Ruth uses her medical skills to save a boy’s life and suddenly she is on the run again. With her German Shepherd, Major, Ruth will do her best to make it to the trial. Ruth has such courage to face off against the father’s criminal organization to gain justice for her sister as well as get her life back. (by paytonpuppy)
On the Ropes by Hallee Bridgeman is a page turner, fast-paced action, suspense and longer than most novellas (thank goodness). Twins that are both doctors (residents), one is murdered, a fiance who is a professional boxer and the son of a crime boss. What did one of the twins witness? Murder, witness protection, non-stop suspense. The author will snag your attention right away and not let go. I don't normally like novellas (just not long enough & they leave too much unsaid) but not in this book. I honestly can say "This is the best novella I've read". I've read other books by Halle and she doesn't disappoint, no matter the genre'. She has become one of my favorite authors. I highly recommend anything by Hallee Bridgeman. No one asked me to leave this review and all opinions are my own.
On the Ropes by Hallee Bridgeman is a romantic suspense novella. I have read many of this author’s novels, and this one is as intriguing as the others. The plots are always engaging, and the characters are very appealing and developed. This story alternates between the past and the present so that the reader learns what has happened to the main character. Dr. Ruth Burnette is a surgical resident who enjoys her career and her life. She and her twin sister are very close and adopt a dog that her sister finds. Victor Kovalev, a successful Russian professional boxer has ties to the mafia through his father and his father’s business. Through injuries that he sustains, he meets Dr. Ruth Burnette. She is a strong Christian so she invites him to church where his life is changed. Soon after they become engaged, Ruth is in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses a mafia killing. She flees for her life when tragedy strikes her personally. She must relocate to preserve her life. The story is very suspenseful and has many twists and surprises. I recommend this page-turner that will not disappoint. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
This was a very enjoyable quick read. The charactets were surprisingly well-developed for a novella, and the storyline was interesting.
