"Without Warning" by Lynette Eason

About this book:

  “Katie Singleton, a partner with the Elite Guardians Protection Agency, stumbles upon her next assignment quite by accident. Spotting blue lights at a familiar restaurant, she stops to investigate, only to discover that owner Daniel Matthews has become the target of someone who will go to any lengths to put him out of business.
  Daniel might be concerned, but he's not convinced that a bodyguard--and a female one at that--is necessary. A new attack and his niece's urgings are enough to make him reconsider. He and Katie must figure out who's behind the intimidation and threats--before a would-be killer strikes again.”

My personal Rating-
Okay, so I got into this one. Lynette Eason can do some great action scenes and she did many in “Without Warning”. I loved all the mentions of some technical stuff & other, not as well known, law agencies. Katie & Daniel both were great and really cute together. I personally wasn’t shocked at who the baddies were (more on that in the major spoiler below). I’m curious about the next book…it looks like it might be a bit creepier than I would like, but I do plan to try it out since I’ve enjoyed these two previous books in the series.  
*Large Spoiler Discussion question* (What happened with Sarah’s kids? She dies and…? Did she make up the children or was she really a single mom to two? They’re only mentioned once (page 59), but I wish that would have been answered for those who noticed.) *End of Large Spoiler*

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
*I received this book for free from the Publisher (Revell) for this honest review.
