ABOUT THE BOOK
Series: The Night Guardians, Book 1
Author: Sara Davison
Publisher: Mountain Brook Ink
Release Date: June 1, 2019
Genre: Inspirational Romantic Suspense
She must choose between the man who represents the law and the one who may have taken it into his own hands.
Neglected by her parents for most of her life, Nicole Hunter keeps everyone, especially men, at arms’ length. So when Attorney Gage Kelly walks into the diner where she is waiting tables one evening, she fights her attraction to him with everything she has.
Gage and his brother Holden grew up in an abusive home, and Gage has baggage of his own. But the connection between him and Nicole is too strong to ignore, and Gage manages to convince them both that their relationship is worth the risk.
Then children begin disappearing in the night.
When Detective Daniel Grey starts to close in on the child snatcher, and enlists Nicole’s help, she faces her deepest fear. Everything and everyone she has clung to so tightly could be ripped from her, leaving her completely alone.
Except for one.

IN MY OPINION
Sara Davison’s latest release walks some lines that will be hard to stomach for some readers, but it will make you think and consider where the line is that might make you do something that, while it’s not right by society’s standards or those of the law, doing nothing just isn’t an option.
In Vigilant, that line is drawn in situations where children are being abused but not taken from the homes where the abuse is occurring. Daniel Grey is the detective investigating the abductions and thinking outside the box leads him to two possible suspects. I will say, Davison did an excellent job of keeping me guessing which of the two was truly responsible until three-quarters of the way through the book when she reveals it to the reader.
There is a love triangle plot in this as well, which didn’t quite work for me. Everything happened too fast, and if Nicole was uncertain about her relationship with Gage after her time with Daniel, her solution to that was completely not the right one. Really, there was only one way that resolution could go to semi-satisfy readers.
If you’re looking for a read that will make you examine your convictions, Vigilant delivers. I’m very interested to see where Davison takes us in book two of the series.
