Review: ‘A Need To Protect’ (A Widow’s Peak Creek Book, # 4) by Susanne Dietze

About The Book
Their peaceful life is about to be shaken up

Protecting them is her priority

Is there room for love?

A safe, quiet life—that’s what shepherdess Clementine Simon wants for her niece and nephew. There’s nothing safe or quiet about globe-trotting cameraman Liam Murphy. It’s only right that life pulled them in separate directions. But when he returns—temporarily—old feelings resurface. Can she take the biggest risk of all…falling in love?

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

My Rating: 4 Stars!

Susanne Dietze takes her readers back to the sweet and small town of Widow’s Peak Creek with this story. Clementine has become the guardians of her niece and nephew after their parents are killed in a tragic accident. She has been fearful ever since. When her high school sweetheart comes to town to recover from surgery and stays with his grandmother, Clementine is going to have to come to terms with several things.

This is a wonderful little town and I’ve grown quite fond of its inhabitants. I hope Deitze has more to tell of these folks. This one is precious with two lovely children and a thread spiritually that all believers can identify with. Recommended.

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. The review is my own opinion.
