love it I was hooked from the very beginning I found Miles to be a very complex character since he was introduced in Shielding His Christmas Witness Being able to find out what made him tick was great I also loved Paige and Abby One of my favorite parts of any book I read is when the heroine of the story is a single mother Paige is used to doing things for Abby on her own, but when hers and Abby s lives are threatened, she must rely on Detective Miles Callaghan to keep them safe I loved how Laura Scott kept the action coming Just when you thought they were safe, they d be found and forced to flee My jaw literally dropped when the killer was revealed Usually I m pretty good at guessing who the culprit is, but I didn t see it coming this time.

5 stars for an okay read.
The focus was on the characters than the mystery, and I do like a good clue driven mystery After the first intro, I felt like the story fell flat, and I put it aside for a couple weeks without having much urge to return and read Also, the big reveal was an info dump, which was a major stretch I understand that this publisher sets strict limits on space, and I felt that space could have been used much better to build a exciting mystery A whole lot of words went to the repeated oh, if she will only talk and oh, she needs a counselor stat while they are on the run for their lives.
I will be checking out books by this author, though I own several and probably should have started with book one to get a better feel for the hero and his family.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free review copy.
The Only Witness starts off very good and I liked the characters I wasn t a huge fan of the mystery, but I can t really explain why.
I liked the romance and I also liked how the child played a key role in the storyalthough I did feel bad for her and what she witnessed The way they comforted her while still trying to find out what she saw, was nice All in all, a good book I enjoyed it and recommend it if you like LIS books I received a complimentary eBook copy for my honest review As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
I love the Callahan family Although it s also the name of my kids school principal, so that sometimes takes my mind off the story This is the second book in the Callahan Confidential series Abby witnesses something and now she won t talk People are after her and her mom Miles is at the right place at the right time.
I like all three of these characters They are well thought out Rating 5Content Clean, violenceSource Netgalley this review is based on my unbiased opinion.

These are my favorite travel books I keep one in my car or purse, so if I have some spare time waiting on someone, I can pick up a book and read a few chapters The action begins on page one and entices the reader to continue on until the last page Even in the midst of being shot at, Paige is praying She also prays before eating in front of Miles, who has put a distance between himself and God She lives out her faith for anyone to see, and I like that.
