Yuletide Defender by Sandra Robbins
Hi from Sandra Robbins in Tennessee where the temperature has dipped lower than we've experienced in a long time. We even had some snow yesterday which has put me in the Christmas spirit even more.
I love this time of year, and this year I have a special reason to be excited. My Love Inspired Suspense Yuletide Defender released last week. This is my third book with Love Inspired, and I have to admit I still can hardly believe it when I see my book for sale. Saturday when I was in Walmart and spied it among the other December releases, I could only stand and stare at it and thank God for blessing me so much.
As you can probably guess from the title, Yuletide Defender has a Christmas theme. The plot involves an anonymous source who tells Rachel Long, a determined newspaper reporter, he believes a vigilante is responsible for the deaths of gang members in the city. Rachel who needs a big story to advance her career decides to find out the truth. Matt Franklin, a police detective, is worried for the feisty reporter who keeps showing up in the wrong part of town and becomes her protector. The two of them find that a threatening gang war is propelling them to a showdown—just in time for Christmas.
I had a good time writing this book because I got to incorporate the suspenseful plot with the Christmas season. Sometimes the holidays and the suspense overlapped, however, when a rogue Santa Claus brought terror into Rachel's life. But as we know, in the end right has to prevail.
I hope your Christmas is peaceful and happy, and I hope Santa leaves lots of Love Inspired books in your stocking!
