LONE DEFENDER (4) by Shirlee McCoy: Someone tried to kill Skylar Grady by drugging her and leaving her in the Arizona desert. Jonas Sampson finds her after six days. Her job as a P.I. was to find a deadbeat dad, and she’s determined to find out how her search for him made her a target of killers. Jonas, who was with the border patrol until his pregnant wife was murdered, is determined to keep Skylar safe. As two stubborn people find love once again, killers seek to stop them from finding anything at all. Plenty of suspense, a fine mystery and sympathetic main characters, as well as intriguing secondary ones, make this a page-turning read.
