IN HER DEFENSE
Riverton police officer Pierce McDougal is furious when he suspects victim's advocate A.J. Ferguson of holding up a case by making him wait to interview a child who was a witness to his mother's abuse. But when A.J. is threatened by the violent husband, Pierce is quick to protect her. Romance develops nicely between A.J. and Pierce in Margaret Watson's In Her Defense (3). A.J. and Pierce's desire to do right makes them very likeable characters. A good read.
