Garrison's Law begins. A family of alpha Texas lawmen (and women) bring their own brand of justice to law and order in Texas.
Trudy Jennings is a college professor with a string of bestselling pop psychology books about answering all of life's troubles with love.
Ben Garrison is her student. He's a hardened cop who needs this class to get his degree, but he can't keep a straight face. He tells her she's right, as long as she lives in her cushioned, safe life. But for him, using her philosophy, he'll be dead by the weekend.
A stalker is coming after kindhearted Trudy, and Ben is there to protect her. Trudy faces her first true challenge to turning the other cheek. Her stalker keeps coming despite her kindness and she feels like a failure that she can't help the confused and frightening man.
Ben has to keep Trudy safe until the escalating stalker can be stopped. As Ben gets to know Trudy better, he recognizes his own callus behavior at the same time he finds out everyone in Trudy's life takes advantage of her.
She's got to get tough.
He's got to find a kinder way.
Together they have to take down a wealthy, obsessed man who knows how to play the system, because he's done all this before.
My Thoughts: For romantic suspense, Loving the Texas Lawman by Mary Connealy, is one of the funniest this reviewer has ever read. What a hoot!
Set in an affluent area in Texas, a very rich villain stalks a very rich victim who happens to be a writer of self-help books that promote "turn the other cheek" and "a soft answer turns away wrath". Trudy Jennings totally practices what she teaches.
Hard nosed cop, Ben Garrison, needs her class to get his degree, but he's not buying what she's selling. Stalker Ralph Watson has more than a few screws loose and he's fixated on Trudy.
Oh my! Will Trudy stick to her beliefs and risk becoming a victim or will she abandon them to save her skin? I'll never tell. You'll have to buy the book to find out.
