About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

Expecting Danger (Small Town Guardians, Book 2) by Jennifer Pierce: Review Tour with JustRead Tours


Kate has been on the run from the men who killed her husband and left her for dead—which isn’t easy considering she’s eight months pregnant—but now they’ve found her. Again. Still reeling from her late husband’s betrayal, the last thing Kate wants is the help of a handsome stranger.

Security expert, Jacob Jones, is still grieving the loss of his pregnant wife, and he’s not ready to move on. But when he thwarts an attempted abduction of the beautiful Kate, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to her. Despite her reluctance, he’s determined to do whatever it takes to save her, including giving up his own life.

Kate’s only option is to take a leap of faith and allow Jacob to help her. But can she trust him to keep her and her unborn baby alive? Or will he fail her like everyone else in her life?


"The hair on the back of Kate's neck stood on end, and the feeling of being watched crawled along her skin in goose bumps. She was supposed to be at home, savoring the last month of her pregnancy.....Instead, her husband was buried in a cold dark grave, and she was running for her life."

Expecting Danger begins with a rush and the thrills never let up, as Kate runs from the person or persons chasing her, while working to discover why she is their target. Thankfully, she is joined by Jacob "Jake" Jones, who happens into her life and attempts to keep her safe until she can deliver her baby. As they try to escape, Jake finds that he is facing another risk because Kate's pregnancy constantly reminds him of the wife and baby that he's lost. Emotional anguish can be as harmful as physical danger and Jake finds himself experiencing both! Will Kate and Jake find the answers they need to end this nightmare? Can Jake overcome his grief and let go of the past? Is there a future for Kate and her baby with this wonderful, caring man?

Author Jennifer Pierce grabbed my attention from the very beginning and I felt as if I was there as Kate and Jake continually faced perils and danger in their race to find the truth. I enjoyed seeing how the hurts from their pasts were slowly healed as they learned to trust each other and I loved the strong faith element that is at the core of this story. If you enjoy Christian romantic suspense, you will certainly find it in Expecting Danger!

I voluntarily received a copy of this book from JustRead Tours. A positive review was never required. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
