Publisher's Summary

Guarding witnesses? All in a day's work for deputy US marshal Carly Masterson. Protecting the judge who was indirectly responsible for her mentor's death? That's another story.

Still, she won't let harm come to Judge Nicholas Floyd, or the niece and nephew in his care. She's determined to do the job right, and not let her emotions take over - no matter how wonderful it feels to be accepted by the little family.

Can she let go of the past and learn to trust again before danger finds them once more?

great Christian book

Mrs. Eason has written another WINNER. this is a clean mystery book...a bit of romance as marshalls try to keep the judge safe. Check to see if they are able to keep him and his family safe...from folks trying to kill them...you will have to listen to find out for yourself. I highly recommend this book!!!

Unable to finish

I could not get past the first chapter it was so poorly read (based my story 5 stars on what I know of Easton’s other stories). The auditor voice of characters and inflections did not match the story content. I had a really hard time listening to her voice. Sorry but not my opinion her voice is to highly pitched for this type of work. Waste of my money.

Mechanical voice

Sometimes the narrator used a mechanical reading voice. It was very annoying. Story very short.

I should have read the reviews ...

I truly appreciate Lynette Eason's suspenseful stories, with a clean romance thrown in. This was no exception, although somewhat predictable. The narration left a great deal to be desired. Had I read the reviews first, I would have purchased the book in another format.

Appalling robotic narration

I love Lynette Eason's books but several times stopped listening for some time. I could not understand how this narrator was allowed to perform this book. She sounds like a child first learning to read with many jerky and unemotional sentences. If the rest of Lynette's books are read by her then I shall not buy them. .
