    Love this book Then again you can't go wrong because it's a Love Inspired There could have been a little proofreading but it's a great story When your life's in danger and you don't know who's out to get you who can you trust? Have you ever felt like you were suspicious of everybody and didn't feel safe trusting anybody? While reading Yuletide Defender there were a few times I was spooked Right before the bad guy was revealed I was thinking Nah it can't be Why him? You just have to read this one Lots of suspense and some romance a good mix

    Rachel Long's desire to get a better job just may get her killed When she starts writing stories about the truth behind the reason gang members are being killed someone is out to shut her up permanently Detective Matthew Franklin tries to warn her that she's in danger but she refuses to believe she cannot take care of herself So when danger finds her Matt has to step in and be her heroAs the two work together they feel the romantic tension building between them But Rachel has a responsibility to take over the care of her disabled sister and for that she needs a lot money Matt however is tired of women who are after his money Money is evil and he wants nothing to do with itI really liked the community center volunteer in this book He doesn't pity Matt but points out the truth to him I really liked both of these characters and the tension they shared The final blow up was great as well as the aftermathAs for the killerwell I figured out the who and why early in the book but still enjoyed the suspense of wondering if I had it right

    Intrepid is there any other kind? reporter Rachel Long is writing about the recent gang murders when she's given a tip from an anonymous source a vigilante is stalking the city and taking out gang members Matt Franklin a detective wants her out of harm's way but Rachel feels a need to cover the story no matter what the cost This book feels like a retread of other mysteries I've read; the characters aren't that interesting I guessed the vigilante before the end
