Guarding the Witness by Margaret Daley

Guarding the WitnessBook Description:
After two months of protective custody, bodyguard Arianna Jackson is days away from testifying at a murder trial when the unthinkable happens. Her Alaska safe house is attacked, and Arianna is forced to go on the run with U.S. Marshal Brody Callahan. Arianna is used to issuing orders, not taking them, but now, out in the wild, with a bounty on her head and a killer on her heels, she has only one hope of making it to testify-the handsome protector at her side.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this one.  Arianna is a bodyguard, or she was until she witnessed a murder while on a job.  She is taken into US Marshal custody because of WHO she saw commit the murder.  Now the big job is to keep her alive and Brody, a US Marshal, is determined to do that no matter what the cost.  The two of them survive an attack and are in a race against time to get Arianna to court to testify before they are either killed or the murderer walks.
Arianna was a wonderful character.  She was strong, capable and fiercely independant.  Yet she knew exactly when she needed help and how capable Brody was.  Brody himself was a great character.  The two of them together were a great team and I really did enjoy their story.  The element of faith that she managed to portray was very low key but also important to the characters and portrayed wonderfully.  The only downside was I knew how it was going to end, but it was still good!
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a good, enjoyable book.
