The Christmas Witness…… by Susan Sleeman
First of all, don’t let the title keep you from reading this book now. I plan to read it again very soon, because it is just that good! And this is a Christmas book that anyone can enjoy anytime during the year.
This was my first book by Susan Sleeman, and I’m now hooked! When Megan Cash finds out the man she testifies against has been released from prison, she not only fears for her own life, but her young daughter Ella who is suffering with cancer. And the last person Megan wants working her case is former FBI agent, Reid Morgan, because she just couldn’t handle being around him after he broke her heart. But Reid had different thoughts and was determined to protect Megan and her daughter, whatever it took because he didn’t want to let her down again.
My heart was breaking and I was also scared right along with Megan as threats were made on her life as well as Ella’s. And just when you think the situation is bad enough, it only gets worse. Susan Sleeman writes an awesome suspense story that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book. I think I put the book down only once when reading it. I just kept wondering if there were ever going to catch the bad guy! The characters created by Susan for this story were unique and believable, characters that I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know, that is except for the ex-con. And the romance added in with the suspense just made the book that much more enjoyable. The tension and then attraction between Reid and Megan was just fun and interesting written in with all of the horrible problems Megan was having!
This is truly a book that I would read a second and probably a third time. It is just that good. And I will be adding it to my personal library, along with more books by Susan Sleeman. I highly encourage you to grab a copy of this book to read and enjoy. You will NOT be disappointed at all!
I rec’d a copy of this book from the author, Susan Sleeman. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine alone.

Imagine being the hostage in a robbery, and then enduring the long trial process until the person who did this harm is placed in prison. Now imagine getting on with your life, thinking you have accomplished than, until one day, pumping gas you think you see him.
Thus begins the suspense in Susan Sleeman’s latest story, and it doesn’t let up. Just when you think you might breathe again, something else happens, which makes it a fast read.
Add a jilted romance and renewed acquaintance which brings out the characterization complementing the suspense.

This fast-paced suspense novel sometimes triggers tears as well as adrenaline. Megan Cash had been held hostage during a bank robbery 10 years prior. Now the robber is out of prison and threatening her and her daughter, Ella, who has cancer. The situations may strain belief but certainly increase the tension. Reid Morgan, the former FBI agent who had helped Megan through the trial, just happens to be at the hospital when the robber tries to get to Ella the first time. Can Megan depend on his assistance after he dumped her in favor of his job once the robber was convicted?
Both had married since they were involved long ago. Reid’s wife had died of cancer, making it doubly hard to watch Ella suffer. Megan’s husband had left her after Ella’s diagnosis. Now Megan and Reid are drawn together again. The book is as much about their relationship as about the danger to Megan and Ella. I have to state I disagree with the author’s premise that God’s plans would include a divorced woman remarrying while her husband is alive. His Word makes it clear that marriage is a lifelong covenant and if one spouse leaves the other should remain unmarried. Otherwise, the book is well-written.

In The Christmas Witness, Megan Cash is in for the fight of her life when the man she testified against decides to seek revenge by threatening her daughter.
Former FBI agent, Reid Morgan, the man who worked her case when she was a witness and subsequently broke her heart when he choose his career over her, is determined to protect Megan at any cost.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The characters were believable and the story moved along at a good pace.
