A PROMISE TO PROTECT by Patricia Bradley

Patricia Bradley lives in North Mississippi and is a former
abstinence educator and co-author of RISE To Your Dreams, an abstinence curriculum. But her heart is tuned to suspense. Patricia’s romantic suspense books include the Logan Point series—Shadows of the Past and A Promise to Protectand Matthew’s Choice a Heartwarming romance. Her workshops on writing include an online course with American Christian Fiction Writers and workshops at the Midsouth Christian Writer’s Conference in Collierville, TN. When she’s not writing, she likes to throw mud on a wheel and see what happens.

Welcome, Patricia. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be?
I would love to talk to Lazarus. Can you imagine the stories he could tell? And I’d like to know what happened to him after the resurrection. The Pharisees wanted to kill him and I wonder how long he lived before he went home for good. 

Please tell us a little about your novel, A Promise to Protect.
This is Ben Logan’s story. He was the sheriff in the first book, Shadows of the Past. 

Here’s the back cover blurb:
Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn’t heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn’t mean he can get her—or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago—out of his head. When she calls out of the blue it is with a strange request to protect her brother, Tony. But when Tony dies just days later, Ben is charged with a different task—protecting Leigh and her nine-year-old son, TJ, from the killers. But how can Ben keep an eye on Leigh if she’s doing everything in her power to avoid him? And could the secret that Leigh is keeping change Ben’s life forever? 
Suspense, intrigue, and a touch of romance make A Promise to Protect perfect for readers who like their stories with a hearty dose of mystery.

What takeaway value do you want your readers to have?
A Promise to Protect is a story about forgiveness. Ben has to learn to forgive himself and Leigh needs to forgive others as well as receive forgiveness.

Any parting comment?
First of all, thank you so much for having me on your blog, Jo. I’ve been a follower for a while now and love your posts. And I want to encourage any unpublished writer out there to not give up. Learn the craft of writing and hangth thou in there. If God has called you to write, He will get you published…in His timing, not yours. Which is a good thing. If I’d been published any earlier, I would have been so embarrassed by the book. I had more to learn.

Patricia, thank you for visiting with my readers and me. One of the commenters on this post will be randomly selected to win a copy of A Promise to Protect, which you have offered.

The winner of last Thursday’s blog post for a copy of The Yuletide Angel by Sandy Ardoid is Carol H. I’ll email you. Thanks all for commenting. Watch for more book giveaways.

Till next time…keep on smiling.
