Through Love's Trials

About the book: Kenneth King, a successful Arizona attorney, finds himself facing the most difficult trial of his life—and it’s not in a courtroom. He’s asked to deliver a mysterious disk to Emma James an attorney in Utah, but as soon as Kenneth agrees to it, his life is turned upside down. His home is broken into, he’s shot at, and an attorney at his firm is murdered. Is he next?

Kenneth contacts Emma, and is drawn to her immediately, but she is a strong-willed single mother who doesn’t want anything to do with the disk—or with him. However, when Emma suffers a brutal assault that is possibly linked to the disk, Emma’s father, an agent in the Canadian Security Intelligence Service steps in to help Kenneth protect her and find out who wants them dead.

The tension builds as Kenneth and Emma find themselves in a race against time to stop an attack on North America’s defenses. Will the Canadian government be able to help them before the United States is attacked? Will Kenneth and Emma let down their defenses enough to make it through love’s trials?

My Review: Kenneth can't believe his good luck when he's told by his boss, Paul James, that he's going to be made partner in his law firm after only a year of working there. But Paul seems to be worried about something, and he asks Kenneth to do him a favor, deliver a disk to his ex-wife when he's on his vacation to Utah. Kenneth thinks that is really strange, but he's willing to help out. Things get even weirder the next morning when Kenneth goes into the office for just a minute and finds Paul dead in Kenneth's office, shot execution style, but he doesn't worry too greatly about it until he goes home. There Kenneth is attacked by a man with a gun. This can't be just a coincidence, can it? When he tries to deliver the disk to Emma, he finds a single mother who really wants to not have anything to do with her ex-husband, even to look at the disk, but when she keeps running into Kenneth she changes her mind. But bad things seem to follow the disk, can Kenneth and Emma keep each other and Emma's young daughter safe?

This is an action filled story. I really liked that there was always something to try to figure out, and I really liked that I was completely unable to get the suspects right. I liked Emma and Kenneth, although Emma's dad really bugged me. I liked that it was a clean, suspenseful book with a touch of romance. Can't wait to read more books in this series!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
