Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite

Reagan’s Redemption by Cate Beauman is the eighth book in the author’s The Bodyguards of L.A. County series. Doctor Reagan Rosner comes to The Gap in the Appalachian Mountains, hoping to move on from the death of one of her pediatric patients. Haunted by the death, she throws herself into getting the federally funded clinic off the ground, but the community is highly suspicious of outsiders and she struggles to win their trust. Shane Harper, a part of Ethan Cooke Security, doesn’t particularly want to be spending a stint in the mountains, but a job’s a job. Although wary of him at first, Reagan begins to warm to Shane after they save the life of teenage mother, Jenny, and her baby, Faith. Taking the pair in, they begin to form a stronger bond. However, with the mining community suffering from an illness, and no one willing to 'fess up to the true causes, will Shane be able to protect Reagan long enough for love to blossom, or will mysterious phone calls and vandalism chase the good doctor away from her mission?

Reagan’s Redemption is the third novel I have reviewed by Miss Beauman. I believe this has to be my favorite one so far. I loved this book so much I read it in a day! I loved Reagan’s headstrong character, and how she cared deeply for the needs of others. Adding Jenny and Faith in was a beautiful touch, especially seeing Shane’s fatherly love for the pair. The romance between Reagan and Shane had just the right amount of build-up before fireworks exploded. I will definitely be following this series for as long as Cate Beauman continues to write it.
