The author has done an excellent job in creating characters that her reader will connect with, relate to, and truly come to care about.

I am pleased to be able to highly recommend Deceiving Bella: Book Eleven in the Bodyguards of L.A. County Series and look forward to reading more from the very talented author, Cate Beauman, as soon as I possibly can!
