FOR THE BABY'S SAKE
FOR THE BABY’S SAKE (3) by Beverly Long: Counselor Liz Mayfield is only trying to help the pregnant young woman who comes to her. Detective Sawyer Montgomery wants to put away a crime lord who has been pushing drugs to kids in the neighborhood. When a drive-by shooting tosses Liz and her charge into Sawyer’s path, the detective with the closed-up heart finds himself willing to do anything to keep Liz safe. Then, when the young mom-to-be goes missing, it’s going to take both of their best efforts to make sure she survives. Though the plotting is fine, Long’s characters are hard to warm up to, particularly Sawyer.
