Book Description: DANGEROUS TESTIMONY
Minutes after testifying in a murder trial, sketch artist Sydney Berry is almost killed in a drive-by shooting. United States Marshal Max Preston saves her life then whisks her away to safety. She's his first protected witness, and he'll do everything in his power to keep her safe. But Sydney doesn't want to hide from danger. She is determined to finish her testimony and put a killer away. With potential suspects coming from all corners, Sydney will have to trust Max with her deepest secrets—and her life.
My thoughts: Syndey is an expert sketch artist who is set to testify in a murder trial. She is really good at what she does.
Max is a member of the US Marshall's. His job is to protect Sydney because she has become a target from a gang that has ties to the murder suspect.
This book has a lot of suspense. Max and Sydney are continually on the run as their position is compromised again and again. Somehow the bad guys seems to know where to look for them. It looks as if there is someone who is supposed to be a good guy helping out the bad guys.
This book has a lot of Christian talk and themes. Max is not religious, but Syndey is. They spend a lot of time together and have many religious conversations. It seemed to be a dominant factor of the book. At times it overshadowed some of the suspense for me. I enjoy Christian fiction, this book bordered on preachy to me.
The book has a sweet romance. Sydney and Max are a great couple of people who both really needed to find some happiness and trust.
Overall, this was an enjoyable book.
