Sworn to Protect by Diann Mills

It's been said that if you love Dee Henderson, you'll adore Diann Mills. I must say I heartily agree with that statement. While her second novel in the Call of Duty series doesn't top her first, it's still an excellent reading experience.

"Sworn To Protect" tackles the unique topic of border patrol agents, most likely an area of law enforcement we all give little thought to in spite of our increased need for these men and women. Danika Morales puts flesh and bone in that uniform, and gives the office heart and humanity.

She's sworn to protect our borders, and her oath has cost her dearly. First, her husband is murdered, with the perpetrators still at large years later. Now someone wants her dead as well, and will stop at nothing to see it happen.

McAllen, Texas is a hotbed of illegal immigration, a subject that cost Toby Morales his life. Is Danika's brother-in-law helping with illegal border crossings? Is there truly a rogue border patrol agent, or is something even more sinister taking place?

Diann represents both sides of the immigration debate equally, and with passion. Her characters are vivid and the storyline is fresh and engaging. I had trouble connecting with Danika, but the pages flew as I had to know what would happen next.

And the ending was easy to spot, yet unfolded in a surprising fashion. I still prefer "Breach of Trust", but found this new edition in the series an enjoyable book. That's why I'm giving "Sworn to Protect" four out of five bookmarks, with a cactus as a charm.

Thanks to my friends at Tyndale for my advance reader edition! Watch for "Sworn To Protect" to release in April.

Happy Reading!
