Review: Witness Protection Widow by Debra Webb (Blog Tour)

About the Book

Can the witness protection program keep her identity secret?

After Allison James finally escapes her marriage to a monster, she becomes the star witness in the case against her deceased husband’s powerful crime family. Now it’s up to US Marshal Jaxson Stevens, Ali’s ex-boyfriend, to keep the WITSEC widow safe. But as the danger escalates and sparks fly, will Jax be able to help Ali escape her ruthless in-laws?

My Review

Allison James is in serious trouble. Her abusive husband is dead, but his mobster family is still controlling her. She plans to see that come to an end when she testifies against them. However, to get to that point, she must be protected at all costs. She enters the witness protection program and is shocked when her old flame, Jaxson Stevens is the US Marshal assigned to her case.

Their old feelings resurface, but there’s no way Allison was going to let Jaxson get caught up in her mess. She doesn’t care that it’s his job to protect her, she is determined to protect him against her evil in-laws.

For Jaxson, his old feelings for Allison are still very much alive, but he can’t help wondering how she could marry into a crime family. He never stopped loving her and he vows to make sure she survives her testimony.

The sparks fly right off the pages in this one. Allison and Jaxson have many demons in their past.  They try and put it all behind them, but it's not easy.

It’s been awhile since I read a Harlequin Intrigue, but this was a great way to get back into the line. Debra Webb did a great job of bringing romantic suspense alive. Witness Protection Widow is #5 in her Winchester, Tennessee series.  It's the first and only book I’ve read in this series.   I didn’t feel as if I was missing anything. The book mainly features Allison and Jaxson. There are no cliff hangers and the storyline is all wrapped up by the end of this book.

The story is fast-paced and felt like a roller coaster ride. My heart was in my mouth as they tried to get away from the bad guys. It was hard to know who was trustworthy and who wasn’t.

This book is filled with romance, suspense and a little mystery. I’m definitely going to be checking out this author’s backlist.
