Expert Witness by Rachel Dylan

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Expert Witness. Rachel is a new author for LIS but I really enjoy her work. This book is well written, fast paced and full of adventure. This story is filled with faith, hope and love. I know you will enjoy it.

Sydney Berry is a victim of abuse. She managed to leave her abuser and took self-defense classes to overcome her fear. Not satisfied with just the simple course she worked with an ex-military man to become an expert. Little did she know she would need these skills as her life becomes threatened. As an expert witness in a court case she testifies in a preliminary hearing but when it comes time for her to testify in court she is almost killed in a drive-by shooting. She is saved at the last moment by a marshal.

US Marshall Max Preston is a former FBI agent and had dealings with the East River Gang. Convinced that Sydney is in danger he follows her and is able to rescue her from being shot. Sydney is his first case in witness protection and he is bound to protect her even from herself when she insists on testifying. He must prove some connection between the East River Gang and the man on trial. How high up does this gang go? Clearly there is a mole somewhere in the marshal program.

This is a journey between two people that are struggling to do their jobs in the face of great trials. Both of them have been hurt and have no desire to have a relationship. Max is awed by the strength of this woman and seeks to understand that her faith in Christ is what has brought her to this place. I  think as Christian we all want to live our faith in a way that will lead others to our Lord. Most of us fall short and are overcome by the cares of this world but God has a plan for us that will enable each of us to be the overcomer. He can make a way where there is no way if you can just believe. God wants that not one shall perish but have ever lasting life.
