When a beautiful woman walks into his diner asking for a job, Joel Ash can't bring himself to say no. The more he gets to know Anna, the more he's convinced she's hiding something. Intrigued and drawn to protect her, he prays he can ensure her safety and guard her heart. Even if it means risking his own in the process.
Anna Henderson is on the run. In a new town, she wants nothing more than to trust Joel and the family offering her a fresh beginning. She's secured vital evidence that could put her obsessive ex behind bars and out of her life. But without the ability to access it, she'll always be looking over her shoulder.
Worried her past will catch up with her, can Anna ever feel safe in Joel's arms?
Safe in His Arms is a great romantic suspense story. Anastasia is running from a controlling and abusive ex-boyfriend (there are no details – this is not a violent story). Thinking she covered her tracks, she ends up in a small town looking for work in Joel’s diner. Joel is an orphan who lived in foster homes a good portion of his life.
The balance between romance and suspense was very well done. The pace of the story was steady and appropriate. And the characters were endearing, especially Epic, Anna’s Grand Pyrenees.
There are references to God and prayer in this story, so if you are offended by the least mention, this isn’t a story for you, but it is not preachy nor are the mentions prevalent.
