Defender for Hire (Love Inspired Suspense) by Shirlee McCoy

Reviewed by Nancy Crocker

Defender for Hire (Heroes for Hire, #9)

Five years ago Tessa Camry was on a mission with her husband Daniel when an insurgent group attacked wounding or killing 20 people including Daniel. Each year since someone has been leaving a black rose for Tessa on the anniversary of the massacre. And each time she moves to a  new place. But Pine Bluff feels like home and she is tired of moving.

Seth Sinclair works private security and has been put on desk duty until his shoulder heals. Sent to Centennial physical therapy he meets Tessa and he knows a woman in trouble when he sees one. Seth is strong, smart and more than able to kick some butt when needed.

No longer content with sending black roses. The mystery person has now sent a package with a live animal in it. And Tessa has been attacked while jogging. Seth has made it a point to keep Tessa safe and he will do whatever it takes.

I really enjoyed both of the main characters. I thought this was the perfect match of two people who have both loved and lost loved ones. I loved that they got their second chance at love. I also thought the author did a really good job of keeping me guessing on this one. It is filled with mystery, suspense and is action packed.

This is the second novel by Shirlee McCoy that I have read and I have really enjoyed both books now. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

5/5 stars

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
