Sometimes being a finalist so many times makes me feel like the woman in the movie 27 Dresses who was a perpetual bridesmaid.

Bodyguard for Christmas by Carol J. Post

Bodyguard for Christmas (Murphy, #3)Bodyguard for Christmas by Carol J. Post
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Forget the stereotypes usually found in romance stories. Award-winning Author Carol J. Post breaks through with originality and taut suspense with Bodyguard for Christmas. This page-turner is big on romance, but even bigger in suspense. A District Attorney with a small child is being hunted by thugs and hires a bodyguard. From there the twists and turns take the reader on a thrill ride of action, investigation, and emotional chills from Atlanta to Murphy, North Carolina.
Don’t start this book in the evening because you’ll say, “Just one more chapter. I have to see what’s going to happen next,” all night long.
