    Excellent

    After being banished by her father shortly after her mothers death Katelyn returns to Evers, TX to care for her ailing father. To make matters worse, she must deal with John Davies, the man she resents for taking her father's affections. Too bad she is wildly attracted to the town sheriff and must come to terms with the hurts suffered over the years. This is a very emotional story as Katelyn deals with the loss of her father as well as uncovering the events that lead to her mother's death. During all this John stands by her, providing much needed support. But can she let go of the past and accept John. A wonderfully written story that is a great addition to the Heroes of Evers series. Highly recommend this one to everyone.

    Romantic mystery with lots of suspense.

    Promise and Protect. Book Two in the Heroes of Evers Texas. Lori Ryan This is a romantic mystery with a lot of suspense and surprises. Katelyn Bowden was returning to Evers, Texas after being away most of her life. Her mother was brutally murdered when she was four, and her dad sent her to live with her aunt in Austin. He came frequently to visit, but always discouraged her return. She now had two reasons to return. Her father had recently been hospitalized for end stage liver disease and she was escaping a humiliating and heartbreaking betrayal by a man she thought she loved. She was coming home to Evers for good. Sheriff John Davies considered Alan Bowden, then sheriff, his mentor. John moved to Evers from New York City two years ago after a tragic end to undercover work he was doing. Alan accepted him and made him part of the family. Katelyn resented the relationship, feeling her father had replaced her with John, his Golden Boy. John was working constantly on the cold case of Caroline Bowden, Alan's wife, Katelyn's mother. He wanted to be able to solve the case before Alan passed away. He was attracted to Kate, and didn't understand her coldness to him. Realizing her Dad was having bouts of dementia, and John was always there supporting her, her feelings slowly changed. Word spreads that Kate is back in town for good. She starts having vague feelings of a memory trying to return, and is nearly run down by a truck. John suspects there is a lot more to Kate's mom's murder, and vowed to protect her for him and her Dad. A very enjoyable read. The romance between John and Kate gradually grows very hot. The twist and turns will keep you guessing. This can be read as a stand alone, but the first in the series, Love and Protect, was an exciting read also. I received this ARC from the publisher for an honest review. Pat Fordyce

    Great Read

    I received Promise and Protect as an ARC for an honest review, and I'm happy to say I really enjoyed the book. Katelyn and John are a great hero and heroine. Their characters are very well developed and they keep you interested in their story, drawing you in more and to see what is going to happen. John is loved by everyone in town and Katelyn is the girl that comes back after her dad sent her away. They save each other in every sense of the word when things start to go wrong. The book is fun of twists and turns that keep you guessing. Lori Ryan did an amazing job keeping the story flowing and the reader coming back for more.

    Wanted: Sexy, kind, protective man in uniform.

    Give me a sexy, kindhearted, protective man in uniform! Check! Another visit to Evers, TX and it was just as hard to leave as the first time. This endearing, heartwarming community wraps you up in a blanket of love that makes you want to snuggle up with a special someone and stay indefinitely. Hopefully, if you're as lucky as these two and find that special someone closer than you thought (under your own nose for years) it might just get as hot and steamy under that blanket (or on top of it) as it did for John and Katelyn. I dare any single woman to try to hold out against a sexy man in uniform with a good heart that just wants to help and give her a shoulder to lean on...especially when the sparks start flying. Katelyn never stood a chance. ;) I was lucky enough to get an all expense paid trip to Evers when I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review, but the trip is so worth the cost of a full price ticket ;)

    Wonderful read

    You have a mystery that goes back 20 some years all around a little girl who was sent away by her father in hopes to protect her. A father giving up years missed to keep his little girl safe for reason that surprised most. This was a very emotional touching read so many people lost so much that can’t be given back. One little girl not understanding why her father didn’t want her, wasn’t she good enough or maybe he just wanted a son. All she knows is the day her mother was killed she lost everything her family, her home and the love she thought she had. So many years she can’t get back nor could she forgive. The jealousy she holds for one man who took her place in her father’s heart. Things are never as we see them sometimes a much deeper look must be taken as Katelyn will come to find as she comes home to make her father’s last day the best she can. Katelyn is a wonderful character with so much pain and misunderstanding. So much she doesn’t understand. Someone is out to get her but who and why, why did her father send her away all those years. Why doesn’t he love her, can she make things right before he dies? So many questions with so few answers that no one is willing to give up. You could feel her pain as the author takes you though her life and brings her home to a father who is dying. She is confused why would someone be out to hurt her when she has never been around town. John is running from a past he has tried to put behind him, only one man believed in him all those years ago. Katelyn’s father was like his own father he grown to love and respect him. There is so much he doesn’t understand, he will find the answers to help his friend, mentor and father as he tries to bring them close again before her father dies. Maybe some answers can be given to put some peace into an old man’s last breath. I thought he was a wonderful outstanding character he had such compassion and is so giving. With things turning from bad to worse he is falling for Kate and must keep her safe. The author gives you a wonderful small town with great characters who are so loving and giving. The story is full of mystery, suspense, love, pain and sorrow. This was a very touching read as the author gives you a story that will touch your heart. I did listen to this on audio and found the narrator to be very good as I lost myself in her smooth easy flowing voice. The plot was outstanding as the author takes you on a fast pace read of who, what and why. Two people brought together who need to heal from a past that holds them. Can they get over their past, and help each other work out the mystery of a town going crazy. You might be surprise at the outcome, you will change your mind on the killer as the author gives you a few twist to keep you guessing. I totally loved this story from a very talented author.
