Christmas Stalking by Margaret Daley

Book Description:
Bodyguard Ellie St. James has one objective: protect her client…without letting her know. Pretending to be Rachel "Winnie" Winfield's assistant lets Ellie stay close, but there's an unexpected complication—Colt Winfield. Winnie's grandson wasn't in on the plans, and the suspicious marine biologist isn't easy to fool. When the truth comes out, so do more threats to Winnie's life. Trapped on a Colorado mountain, Ellie and Colt must trust each other to guard Winnie and find the stalker. Before this Christmas becomes their last.

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book.  Ellie is Winnie's bodyguard, only the elderly lady doesn't know it.  She's been hired by Winnie's second in command and given specific instructions not to tell her because she couldn't handle the issues involved.  Colt, Winnie's grandson, comes home for a surprise visit and finds more than he imagined when his grandmother's new assistant pulls a weapon on him.  Now to keep Winnie alive, Ellie and Colt have to work together against a very determined person.
I liked Ellie's character.  She was strong, determined, had a history but faith.  Colt had his own issues to deal with but the fact that both of them were focused on keeping Winnie safe was a 'tug at your heart' feeling.  I loved the old lady from the first scene she was in and couldn't wait to find out exactly what happened to her.  Not to mention if anything developed from the chemistry between Colt and Ellie!
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a very good, solid book.
