JOURNEY'S END by Dora Hiers
Chelsea Hammond's world was turned upside down when her husband was murdered. After deciding never to love again, especially a lawman, she pours herself into creating a place where troubled teens can go. When a teen shows up in her barn, she finds out he's the son of the man who killed her husband and is suppose to testify against his father. She decides to call the sheriff. Deputy Marshal Trey Colten is assigned to protect Chelsea. He knows who she is and he knows the truth about what happened to husband. Trey wants to protect Chelsea but the feisty woman doesn't think she needs protecting. Trey and Chelsea both begin to have strong feelings for one another but Trey needs to tell Chelsea the truth and Chelsea is determined not to fall for another lawman. When danger knocks on their door it just might put things into a new perspective.
I really like the way Dora Hiers writes. This tale kept me fully engaged from beginning to end with touching moments, tense moments and several parts that just made me laugh. The whole cast of characters were very well drawn and believable. I especially liked our lead couple and enjoyed cheering them on as they worked their way through love, faith and fear. I loved the Romantic tension between Trey and Chelsea. You could just 'feel' it. If you like romantic suspense then you won't want to pass this up. I recommend Journey's End and look forward to other works by this author.
