Review- Defending Glory by Anne K. Albert
Julia Dixon reviewed Defending Glory by Anne K. Albert:
You can visit the author's website at www.annekalbert.com
Mac McKeown is the cutest darn contractor that Piedmont Island has ever seen! At least that’s how I see it! Mac is a former FBI agent who was injured in the line of duty and recovering physically as well as mentally from an ambush that sent him out the bureau doors and left his partner dead.
Glory Palmer is a sweet little thing straight from California. She’s wanted for nothing in her life and has recently developed a relationship with the Lord. She is coming to Piedmont Island to build a retreat.
Fate pulls these two together in this quaint little town in what would seem like a classic love story until a man is found dead and floating tied to the dock of Glory’s property. To make matters worse, Mac knows who the dead man is.. The possible scenarios are endless and puts each character on guard with the other.
Between dead bodies, spiritual differences and threats, Mac and Glory try to stay on target with her construction goal. Each have their own struggles personally in this story to go along with the struggle against the flame of desire that neither of them want for the other.
Will Glory be able to keep her head straight despite her natural tendency to run home when the going gets tough? Can Mac face his demons? What about his love for his former life with the FBI? Can the two become one or would going their separate ways be a happier ending?
