Hearts in the Crosshairs
She came for her inaugural address and found herself dodging bullets instead. Newly elected Maine governor Jillian Goff doesn't know why someone wants to kill her. But she knows they came close. Too close. Enter Dave Hutchins, a member of the state's Executive Protection Unit. Dave's mission is to protect the governor and find the would-be assassin. Without getting emotionally involved. Yet the more time Dave spends with Jillian, the less he can imagine ever leaving her side. Not with her life--and his heart--caught in the crosshairs.
Dave and Jillian must overcome a lot of issues in this story. They must daily place all their cares in God's hands--whether it's getting along with prickly people, trying to please the public, or overcoming fear. I hope my readers will apply this in their own lives. No matter what the conflict, God is there to walk through it with you.
Why the author wrote this book:
I love my state, and I wanted to write a story set in the capital, Augusta. We've never had a female governor, and that seemed the ideal character for my heroine. I remember my awe and fascination the first time I toured the Statehouse and the Blaine mansion. The setting was perfect. It only needed a little imagination.
