Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan from Bethany House Publishing

My thoughts:  Author Rachel Dylan takes the reader behind the scenes of two trials totally unconnected. The witness for one is a member of the Atlanta legal prosecutory team and who is concurrently prosecuting another banking case. Her roll in both cases the one for which she is the Lone Witness and the other for which she is the lead prosecutor will keep the reader on the edge of his or her seat as they read.

As events unfold, it becomes startlingly clear that Sophie's life is in danger. There is not just a threat with which to be concerned there are actual moves against her that drastically endanger her very being.

Sophie's father secures a body guard to protect her - one of the perks of coming from a monied family; but even though he is a top notch protector, danger still finds Sophie.

The dramatic conclusion of this story had me totally surprised. The story has a sweet romance. This work of fiction sits squarely in the Christian fiction world yet doesn't "preach" to the reader. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more of Rachel Dylan's work.

About the book: When prosecutor Sophie Dawson is the lone witness to a gang-related double homicide, her world is turned upside down. Private security guard Cooper Knight is hired to protect Sophie from the gang, but she's more concerned about prosecuting her latest case than the threat to her life. Sophie wants to stand for what's right, but can Cooper keep her safe?
