Avon, Nov 2001, 5.99, 384 pp.
In 1898 Cheyenne, Wyoming a frantic Eileen Caroni dispatches a telegram to her best friend Eliza Lowe back in Chicago pleading for help. The pregnant Eileen informs Eliza that the law is going to arrest her husband Francis for murder. Eliza wires back that she is on her way to provide comfort and aid to Eileen.
However, Eliza's Aunt Vi arranges, over her niece's objections, to have a Pinkerton Agent accompany her. Though Case Brogan originally wanted to tell his boss Assistant Chief Riley no but he quickly jumps on escort duty when he learns the identity of the accused male in Wyoming. Francis Caroni killed Case's father. As both have their own agenda in wanting to find Caroni, Case and Eliza fall in love, but relationships require trust and neither established that key element from the start.
BELOVED PROTECTOR is an exciting western detective romance that readers who enjoy historical tales will relish. The story line expertly merges the two genres into a taut plot in which the lead characters and several secondary cast members enhance the flow of the tale with their actions. Readers will enjoy this Americana sleuthing romance and seek previous works by talented Linda O'Brien.
