PROTECTING HER SON
PROTECTING HER SON (3) by Joan Kilby: Seven years ago, police officer Paula Drummond nearly ended her career after sleeping with a man she was investigating for selling drugs and getting pregnant as a result. Paula bounced around to several police stations before finally ending up in sleepy Summerside, partnered with Riley Henning. Wanting to earn back her detective status, Paula is eager to get to work and determined to rely on no one. But when her young son’s father, Nick Moresco, is released from prison and wants his son, she turns to Riley for help. Kilby’s story is well written, with lively suspense elements, but the plot is just a bit predictable.
