Samantha Cain is the widow of a policeman trying to raise her son. In order to support them she works the night shift at a trucking company that sits across from the river. One night while working she hears a scream. After calling 911 she races toward where she saw the woman struggling against a large man. She knows she can only help by distracting him until help arrives. When help does finally arrive it's in the form of Detective Matthew Jefferies, her dead husband's partner. He's been looking for this twisted killer for sometime but now he has a witness. When attempts are made on Samantha's life, Matthew takes her into hiding. Neither one expected to find a growing attraction between them. Matthew's job is not really good on a relationship and Samantha wants nothing to do with another policeman after what Martin put her through. What will happen when they are thrown together and begin to realize that neither one of them are what they expected?
This was a good story. It kept me wanting to find out what would happen next or wondering when the villain would strike next. I liked Matthew. His character came across as realistic to me. His thinking seemed to be very logical. I had a little trouble liking Samantha. I understood some of her thinking, considering her dead husband's behavior, but sometimes I felt like she was acting like a child in an adult body. Toward the end of the book I liked her a little better. Be Not Afraid had some suspense, some mystery and some romance. All in all it was a good read.
I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
Please feel free to contact me if you have a question, a comment or are interested in having me review a book for you. (I review Inspirational/Christian Fiction).
