Guardian Angel

by Becky Harmon

Newly appointed US ambassador Elizabeth Turner is still getting used to her post in Mauritania, Africa. She has lots of plans for her time in office, but those plans are forgotten when a crowd of angry protestors start to gather outside the embassy—bringing both sporadic gunfire and concern for the Ambassador’s safety.

Flagler security agent Angel McTaggart will never understand why an intelligent woman would choose to come to a country where women are devalued. Not that her opinion matters, she knows, because she’s here to do one job and one job only—keep the ambassador safe at all costs.

Angel needs to get the situation under control quickly before an attempt to storm the embassy becomes an option for the rioters. Elizabeth Turner isn’t uncooperative, she reasons, just headstrong and opinionated. Angel knows she’s worked with worse, but no one that’s had the effect on her that the ambassador seems to be having now.

Focusing on her job might be harder than she thinks…

Michelle P. - Becky Harmon is becoming one of my favorite authors and this book just ensures that. What I loved about this book is that you could tell it was well researched by how she described the countryside and the issues, especially regarding women and slavery. I just didn’t want this book to end…

Cathie W. - Guardian Angel is one of those books that I crave. Two strong women with very different backgrounds and a bit of thrilling suspense. The author is adept at building chemistry between the two leads while weaving in a thread of danger while living abroad. Honestly, I wish this book was longer.

Ginger O. - Well written story that teases the two characters towards a budding romance. I highly recommend this book.

Bethany’s Reviews - There's a lot to like about this story. Harmon does a superb job of describing the setting, a US embassy in the middle of a charged Mauritania society. I loved the disparity between cultures and really enjoyed reading about a country that wouldn't normally fall on my personal radar. Having this story be between an ambassador and her security agent perfectly fell in the beloved "protector" trope, but it was also fresh enough to be new based on the setting. Truly, the international setting and the action/adventure in this story is really what sold it for me.

Orlando J. - One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was the novel setting and plot. We have the American ambassador to Mauritania dealing with a crowd of protesters barricading herself and her staff inside the embassy walls and the private security agent who is sent to protect her. What was really interesting were the extensive descriptions of Mauritania and the local people. It's not a country I knew a lot about before and was fascinated by the journey we were taken on through the desert and some of the towns, also meeting (and being helped by) some of the nomadic tribeswomen. An enjoyable read from an author I suspect we'll be reading more books by.
