Fleeing with her four-year-old daughter Sammy after a heated custody battle, Meredith Kenyon moves into a run-down house in Oregon and right next-door to the county sheriff. She hopes that her disguise and a low-profile will keep her off of her father-in-law's radar. Sheriff Heath Masters knows his new neighbor is keeping secrets. Both she and her young daughter seem to be afraid of men. The only male they seem to love is his Rottweiler, Goliath. Heath is drawn to his vulnerable neighbor and hopes she will soon begin to trust him.

This is a contemporary romance featuring a tormented heroine and the sheriff who helps her. But the biggest star of this book is the sheriff's dog, Goliath, who sometimes is much smarter than his human counterparts. He knows young Sammy needs a friend. And he somehow knows she needs protection. He's much quicker at figuring things out than the sheriff.

I liked the story, but thought it was buried in a book with too much inner thought. There was pages and pages of Meredith worrying about being caught. More pages of Heath thinking about what kind of secrets his neighbor is keeping. A little editing could have made a world of difference. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

This is the 16th book I've read by Catherine Anderson; she is one of my favorite authors. However, this book isn't one of them. Although Sammy was the plot point upon which much of the story rested, I didn't like having her in it. Usually, I like kids in a book but Sammy seemed more important than the hero and heroine.

The story plodded along; the inclusion of organized crime and washing out mouths seemed ridiculous. I skip-read hunks of the book because some of it seemed implausible. The story just took too long. However, one stinker won't turn me off of reading Anderson's work. Most of her books are on my favorites shelf.

A woman on the run ..... Meredith Kenyon has no choice but to escape the clutches of her abusive late husband's manipulative father. She transforms herself into a small-town mom and, together with her young daughter, settles in rural Oregon ...right next door to the town sheriff. And from the moment he sees her, he realizes she's running from the past and must prove he can protect her .... now and forever.

I love the interaction between the daughter and the sheriff's dog. Excellent book .... real life characters ..... excitement .... and several tears.
