I bought this one a while ago and I’ve been meaning to read it as I’m a big fan of Siegrist. So I’m glad I could carve some time to read some of her earlier work that I hadn’t yet read.
Ava is a supervisor for the crime lab in NYC, and she considers herself one of the best crime scene investigators. Even if her meticulousness causes anxiety in some of the detectives, but not her best friend Jimmy. Ava was the one who showed him the ropes when he first made his dream of becoming a cop in NYC come true.
But when tragedy happens, Ava finds herself among Jimmy’s brothers, Austin and Zane. Zane never wanted his brother working in NYC, and because of an argument, neither had talked to the other for 6 months. Zane blamed Ava for a lot of things that he shouldn’t have. He’s known as a bit of a grouch, settled in his life on the farm Jimmy left behind.
Here we have two strong-willed characters in Zane and Ava, and they were bound to butt heads…spectacularly. I loved the characters in Protecting You, and I loved how Amanda brought them together. I went through a lot of tissues in the first quarter of the book, so have them ready, you will need them.
This was a heartwarming read. From the characters to the storyline, you find yourself drawn in from the start. I’m so glad I read this and I cannot wait to continue with the McCord storyline and see who else has love in their future.
Protecting You is available on Amazon for free (nice!).
