I have never been disappointed in a Lisa Harris book and Sheltered by the Soldier is no exception. This was an edge of your seat page turner from the very beginning. Gabby, the main character, is in a race against time searching for the information that very well may have gotten her husband killed. Someone is working very hard to keep her from finding the answers to her questions. She turns to her husbands best friend for help. Will this friendship develop into something more? You will have to read it to find out. I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

When Gabby Kensington discovers that her husband's death overseas may not have been the accident it was portrayed as, she begins investigating on her own. Her phone calls place her squarely in a killer's sight, and there is no one in the military that she trusts to keep her safe, except her husband's best friend, Liam O'Callaghan. Injured in the same blast that killed her husband, Liam has been on medical leave, healing from the wounds he received. Will he believe her when she tells him someone is after her? For Liam O'Callaghan, getting a call from Gabby Kensington brought back memories he had no desire to revisit. However, he can't leave his best friend's wife without protection, especially when her baby daughter is also threatened. Sheltering them at his family's ranch, where law enforcement abounds - his brother is the sheriff, and his father is the retired sheriff - seems like the best bet, especially since her stalker seems to find her wherever he hides her. When Gabby's baby is taken from his parents' house, it becomes apparent that they are up against someone with some pretty advanced technology on their side. Can they find the baby girl before the killers decide she isn't valuable as a hostage anymore? Can they figure out who has the most to gain from silencing Gabby, even if she hasn't found the actual evidence her husband had? Lisa Harris is a rock star with romantic suspense, in my opinion. I had no idea who the antagonist in this story was until Gabby and Liam found her husband's evidence near the end. The roller coaster of "she's safe", "No, she isn't" was played out several times, and just when I relaxed, Boom, the baby disappeared. I've read some of Harris' longer books, and a few of her LIS novels in the past, and this one is another winner. I highly recommend pretty much anything she's written.

I loved the book, and I highly recommend it. It started out fast, and didn't stop!

If you're into this genre -- clean, romantic suspense -- this is a book for you. The dashing hero and the strong, devoted mom female protagonist, both very introspective and tortured by past events. Cue the unseen sinister forces, prototypical evil characters, friends and family rallying to the rescue, all with no sex or profanity, Harris's writing is admirably neat, clean and efficient as well, making this an effortless read. My single-star deduction is for a bit of a formulaic and predictable plot. Harris's inclusion of Christian elements is not a detraction or star deduction, but at times it seems bolted on at the end of a conversation when it could have been more convincingly woven in and out of the plot. Full disclosure: this review is based on a book I received as a gift from the author.

Thrills and adventure begin on the very first page of this book and they never let up. Gabriella Kensington is shocked to arrive home to find her house broken into and her living room trashed and from that point on her life becomes like a dangerous roller coaster ride. She has reasons to believe that her soldier husband had discovered proof of illegal military transactions and that his death wasn't really an accident. This break-in and a late night car chase convinces her that she and her 17 month old daughter are now in danger also. What follows is a tale of threats, attempted murder and the realization that very few people can be trusted. Gabriella finds friendship and protection from her late husband's best friend and soon they both are caught up in an intense search to solve a military conspiracy and avoid being killed themselves. Liam O'Gallighan proves that that he can be trusted for the long haul but Gabriella resists his attentions because she doubts that her heart can survive loving (and perhaps losing) another soldier. Sheltered by the Soldier is an exciting Christian fiction novel filled with intrigue and suspense and it also touches on the unsettled lives that military families must endure. Lisa Harris has created some very realistic characters in Gabriella and Liam. Gabriella is the perfect example of a military wife who feels great pride in her husband's dedication to serving his country but fears each and every day that his service may cause him harm. Liam O'Gallighan exemplifies the man that most parents hope their daughters will marry: he is trustworthy, honest and loyal. And most of all, Gabriella and Liam both share a common faith and trust in God. Sheltered by the Soldier is a story of love, faith and the hope of second chances and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense novels. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and was under no obligation to post a review.

Oh so many romantic-happy-sigh moments mixed with RUN-AWAY suspense moments that I just couldn’t put it down! Perfect sparks and chemistry between Gabby and Liam in a setting that makes sense. The history between and the mental and emotional blocks they both fight are also well-written in this suspenseful page turner. I was so suspicious of everyone! Such great mystery! Definitely a bookshelf keeper for me!

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 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.

Ooh, Lisa Harris writes such non-stop, action-filled suspense that will take your heart and mind on a roller coaster ride! The writing is easy to follow, plot is fast-paced and intense, and the characters are amazing and so easy to love. If you’re a romantic suspense fan, you won’t want to miss this book! Gabby is a young widow with a baby girl and still grieving the death of her soldier husband. She’s gentle, tender, loving but persistent in trying to find out the circumstances of her husband’s death, even in face of danger. Liam is her deceased husband’s best friend and fellow solider who was there when he was killed. Liam has a strong sense of justice and a huge protective nature but is also tender and thoughtful. As they dodge threats and attempts on their lives while trying to piece together the puzzle of the death, they reconnect and their friendship blossoms. I loved meeting Liam’s older brothers and can’t wait for their stories to unfold as the series continues.
