A Promise to Protect by Patricia Bradley

Ben Logan, now Sheriff, was just meeting with Tony because he was asked to do so. Tony, his ex-girlfriend's brother, just died in his arms. In the process, he left clues, and a mystery, and extracted a promise from Ben. A promise to protect his sister Leigh, Ben's ex-girlfriend. One large glitch. Protect her from who, and what, and why? Most of all, how to convince Leigh that she needs protection and so does her son TJ.

This is just the very start of mysteries and secrets that are unraveling faster than you can turn pages. One secret leads to another and another and the truth has to start coming out before it's too late for what could have been, what should have been, and what ought to be.

A pretty good paced story that reaches out with a deeper message of forgiveness and healing. Some mystery solving and a good bit of action included with some romance.

In a steamy small town riddled with broken promises, one woman's secret could change everything.
Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn't heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn't mean he can get her--or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago--out of his head. When she calls out of the blue, it is with a strange request to protect her brother, Tony. But all too soon, Ben is charged with a different task--protecting Leigh from the people after her brother. With Leigh doing everything in her power to avoid Ben, it's no easy task. And the secret she is keeping just may change their lives forever.
