A lot of the Christian Fiction Suspense books that I’ve read have the hero as the government agent and the heroine as the one that needs protected. It’s normal, expected even. I have no problem with it. That is not the case in Breach of Trust by DiAnn Mills.
Paige Rogers carries her Smith 9mm automatic in her shoulder bag and keeps her Beretta Px4 in the cabinet above the fridge. She also bakes great pies for the town’s citizens. She drops them off on her way to opening the library and helping the football team research their school papers. When her work is done she goes home and checks to make sure no one has been in her house in scenes that remind me of James Bond wrapping a hair around the closet door knobs. Once she even had to disarm a bomb under the hood of her car.
The hero in this book is no slouch either. Although Miles Laird is a successful football coach in a small town he once owned a computer security company, and he still has connections. I liked the way Miles conducted himself in this story. Not a pushover and not a push forward either.
Here’s the back cover blurb:
Paige Rogers survived every CIA operative’s worst nightmare.
A covert mission gone terribly wrong.
A betrayal by the one man she thought she could trust.
Forced to disappear to protect the lives of her loved ones, Paige has spent the last several years building a quiet life as a small-town librarian. But the day a stranger comes to town and starts asking questions, Paige knows her careful existence has been shattered.
He is coming after her again. And this time, he intends to silence her for good…
Paige Rogers is a former CIA agent who lost all she treasured seven years ago when her entire team was killed in a covert mission. She blames their leader—Daniel Keary—whom Paige believes betrayed them. Disillusioned and afraid for her life, she disappeared and started a new life as a librarian in small town Split Creek, Oklahoma.
But her growing relationship with high school football coach Miles Laird and the political ambitions of her former boss threaten to unmask her. When Keary announces his candidacy for governor of her state, he comes after Paige to ensure that she won’t ruin his bid for office by revealing his past misdeeds. He threatens everything she holds dear, and Paige must choose between the life of hiding that has become her refuge . . . or risking everything in one last, desperate attempt to right old wrongs.
