TO PROTECT HIS OWN

Author(s): 
Caitlin Kramer is on her own for the first time since her career as a horse-show jumper was ruined when she was hit by a car. When she meets new neighbor Alex Hunter, she ends up helping him with his daughter, who's suffering some emotional trauma of her own. Brenda Mott's To Protect His Own (2) is a bit problematic. Although the story is interesting and the dialogue good in parts, there is not enough description, no real background on why Alex's wife left, nor any explanation of why Alex, a 30-year-old, has a 13-year-old daughter. This lack of explanation and description makes the novel unsatisfying.
