Next of Kin by Sharon Sala

Book Description:Beth Venable has seen too much. Witness to a major mob hit, she's placed in protective custody until the trial. But after her third safe house is riddled with bullets, she goes off-grid to save herself. What the FBI can't do, her kinfolk will.

The beautiful but forbidding Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky welcome Beth back, dirt roads and rustic shacks a world apart from L.A. But her homecoming—even her blissful reunion with strong, silent Ryal Walker—is made bittersweet by the fight she's brought to the clan's doorstep. Hidden in a remote cabin with the man she's always wanted, Beth begins to dream of a new life: her old one. But after so long, with such dangers stalking her…impossible.
But love can distill life down to its essence: an elixir of pure hope, nerve—and the will to survive.

My Thoughts:
This was a good book.  Beth's life is uprooted because her parents choose to move.  She left her whole family and the love of her life.  Now, her parents are dead and she needs protection.  The FBI can't keep her safe but she knows the family she left behind can.  Now she just has to make it to them and the man she never forgot...
Beth was a strong woman.  I loved how tough and resourceful she was, she didn't wait on someone to save her but takes care of herself.  Ryal, the man she left behind, was selfless in putting his hurt and pride aside to help her.  He is strong and caring.  The family was awesome and I love how they take care of their own!!
I rate this a 5/5.  I'm ready for the next one!
