Review of SHELTERED BY THE SOLDIER by Lisa Harris

This is a clean Christian read with a lot of suspense! Gabby Kensington has just lost her beloved military husband and is still grieving his loss when suddenly her life is endangered. Apparently, her husband Will had discovered some kind of illegal dealing and was about to reveal it when he was killed on the battlefield. Now, those he was going to expose are threatening Gabby and her infant daughter Mia. Gabby is invited to stay with the family of Will’s best friend, Liam O’Callaghan. The O’Callaghans are a generous, warm and loving family who accept Gabby as one of their own. But they end up having to protect her from the evil that is determined to destroy her. Drawn irrevocably into the conflict is Liam, Will’s best friend who was on the battlefield with Will when he was killed. Liam continues to feel guilty about Will’s death and he is determined to protect Gabby at all costs. The characters were realistically portrayed with a lot of detail about the military and the physical and emotional toll that it puts on the military member as well as the spouse. As a wife of a retired military member, I thoroughly enjoyed the empathy for Gabby and the hardships she has faced as the spouse of an active duty member of the armed services. I also can attest to the accuracy of the portrayal of Gabby’s love for her husband and difficulty moving on to a new relationship. I enjoyed the suspense that built up at the end of each chapter, keeping me reading to the next chapter and the next and the next. This book was really hard for me to put down because of the military backstory and the rolling action that was like a stone with moss…it just kept me reading and loving it! I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy romantic suspense, particularly romance that is a clean read.
