Monday's Child must Hide for Protection... This was not the assignment Luke Nemec expected when he came to the UK—babysitting a beautiful widow. It wouldn't be so bad if Sara wasn't such a hostile witness. Despite her complaints and continued jibes, Luke finds himself falling for her. When, Sara Barnes is thrown into the witness protection program, she becomes the 'wife' of Lt. Luke Nemec, an American cop on temporary assignment with the British police. Despite Luke's American bravado, she finds he's kind and considerate in ways her late husband never was. But things aren't always what they seem, and Luke soon realizes he's fighting a battle of two fronts to keep Sara safe. Loyalties are called into question, and he's no longer certain who he can trust. Luke is way out of his depth. As the threats against Sara escalate, it's a race against time to find her husband's killer before Sara is silenced forever.

Romantic suspense with some action and a little faith! A Brit and an American paired together out of necessity make for an interesting romance. Enjoyed their banter at times, comparing British sayings versus American terms. The story had a lot of potential, starting out strong and ending well, but lost my interest in between with too much he said-she said dialogue. Sara made so many bad choices that it was difficult to like her. Felt like the romance was a bit forced at times and unrealistic. The plot twists and action saved the whole book. Made it worth finishing. Readers who enjoy romance with some action-suspense may like this book. 3.5 stars

This book is darling yet daring and very elaborate. The author has come up with such a concept of quite a series using the children's poem. The exciting bullet ride starts right off in the beginning when the main character Sara was with her husband and he is murdered and she was a witness to it but she wasn't suppose to be - but GOD saved her. She had to go into WItSEC. in Scotland. The cover story was she was married to Luke - an American detective - now Sara was not very pleasant and not a rule follower and that causes a lot of problems for Luke to keep her safe from the men who wanted to finish killing her when her husband was killed - or was her - hmmm - I shall never tell - so with GODs help Luke show compassion to Sara and then you wont believe what happens - Sara.........I can't tell you what happens that will spoil the book for you - you have to go and buy the book because it is an incredible rollercoaster ride of twist and turns - guesses and answers. You fall in love and you cry with the characters - you feel the pain - and you feel the love of GOD healing the heart. isn't HE so good?

Monday’s Child by Clare Revell Pelican Book Group White Rose Publishing Christian Pub Date 27 Apr 2012 I was given a copy of Monday’s Child through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows: It began as a perfect June day, newlywed Sara is enjoying the company of her until a thief snatches Saras purse and Jamie tries to stop him. Unfortunately the thief has a gun and fatally shoots Jamie, he dies in his new brides arms. Three weeks after they were shot hobbling around for crutches after the doctors had to perform three surgeries to put her leg back together a heartbroken Sara finds herself attending her husbands funeral. A few months later Sara is taken away from danger as the man who everyone believes is her husband takes her to Scotland to keep her away from danger, the man who killed her husband is still after her. But soon it is clear that nothing is it as seems, including the death of her husband, is he the one pulling the strings wanting to kill her because she witnessed something she was not supposed to. I give Monday’s Child five out of five stars. Happy Reading

Monday's child is an exciting, suspenseful, and romantic book all mixed up into one. It holds your attention from the beginning and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last page. Sara is on her honeymoon with her new husband when he is killed. She is a witness to the murder, but is also shot. She is taken into protective custody so that she can be a witness against the shooter. Sara is not at all excited to be in protective custody and cut off from her social network and her family. Luke Nemec is a police officer who is assigned to protect her. Luke finds himself beginning to have feelings for Sara and tries to ease her frustration about being in protective custody by showing her compassion. Sara begins to have feelings for Luke as well. Soon the investigation into Sara's husband's murder begins to get complicated. I won't spoil it by telling you all that happens but it is intense. The book is filled with suspense and action. I also love the romance that develops between Sara and Luke. The underlying thread of faith that is in this book really sets it apart. The book is very well written. I look forward to reading more from Clare Revell.

Oh, my goodness, Clare Revell, you are responsible for the dark circles under my eyes today, because I just had to stay awake last night until I knew how the conflict would be resolved! Sara and Nick are two of the most adorable people. The tension and sarcasm between them was so cute as there was obviously instant attraction between them. But Sara is grieving, hiding from her husband's killer, and in witness protection and NICK is assigned to be her guard 24 hours a day. She feels like a prisoner. She feels alone. Who wouldn't feel these emotions under the circumstances? I imagine it would be incredibly difficult to go through the Witness Protection program. It would also be unthinkably horrific to witness your husband's murder and suffer injury from gunfire yourself. This novel was full of suspense, romance, and humor! I would definitely recommend this novel to readers. My Star Rating: (1 being poorly written and 5 being excellent book) 5 Stars! ***** I received a copy of this book from netgalley and the publishers . I was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are my own.
