ARC Review: Witness Pursuit by Joanne Wadsworth

What they say: 

One witness...one bodyguard...one life.

Twenty-one-year-old New Zealander Lydia Sands witnessed the hit-and-run of a powerful man’s son. Her bodyguard is shot when the killer returns to dispose of her and The Program puts her in hiding. A year later, the case remains unsolved and her handler needs to get her further from the killer’s reach. Lydia detests the thought of being close enough to endanger the man who nearly died protecting her, even if it’s aboard a super-yacht traveling the south Pacific.

Tyler Whitehall’s shooting stole weeks from his memory. Physically recovered, he oversees security for Whitehall Shipping. While on a family holiday, Tyler is suspicious of the woman accompanying them without notice or security clearance, as his nephew’s caregiver. Stronger than suspicion is his incomprehensible attraction to her, and his instinct to protect her.

Once sensitive information is leaked, Lydia undergoes re-identification to evade a killer and protect the man who’d die to save her. Her bodyguard has just begun his pursuit, and she may have underestimated his abilities.

  • A Lyrical Press Contemporary Romance (published 1st Dec 2013).

What I Say (review): Witness Pursuit focuses on Lydia as she struggles to cope with life in witness protection. Not only does she have horrible memories from witnessing a murder, she's also dealing with the guilt of her former bodyguard Tyler being shot whilst trying to protect her.

Lydia's handler Ben sends her to hide out/work for Tyler's family as a nanny for Tyler's 4-year-old nephew. Tyler has lost his memories of the shooting and doesn't remember Lydia, but he's instantly drawn to her and actively pursues her. 

The story follows Lydia as she reconnects with Tyler and tries to move on from the past. The killer wants Lydia silenced and Tyler, Ben and the team will do anything to protect her.

I enjoyed the family dynamics between Tyler and his brother's, I'm hoping the  next book will focus on one of them. Witness Pursuit is a sweet romance with a hint of drama to keep things interesting.

3.5 Stars in my Sky!
