Julie Keller relishes the simple things: hot chocolate on winter nights, good friends she calls her family, and her laid-back career as a massage therapist and yoga instructor. Julie is content with her life until Chase Rider returns to Bakersfield.
Bodyguard Chase Rider isn’t thrilled to be back in the town where he spent his childhood summers. His beloved grandmother passed away, leaving him a house in need of major repairs. With a three-week timetable and a lot to do, he doesn’t have time for distractions. Then he bumps into Julie, the one woman he hoped never to see again. Chase tries to pretend Julie doesn’t exist, but ten years hasn’t diminished his attraction to the hazel-eyed stunner.
When a stranger grabs Julie’s arm at the grocery store—a woman who insists Julie’s life isn’t what it seems, Chase can’t help but get involved. Julie and Chase dig into a twenty-five-year-old mystery, unearthing more questions than answers. But the past is closer than they realize, and the consequences of the truth have the potential to be deadly.

Very well written
Loved the story! I would have enjoyed Neves point of view included in the story. I often wondered what her thoughts were.
Answers for Julie (Book 9 in the Bodyguards of L.A. Cty.)
Just received this enthralling ebook through Amazon last night. I got so wrapped up in just going to read a few chapters, that the next thing that I knew it was 5:30 a.m. I picked it up again tonight at 9:15 and was finished by 10 p.m. I must say the the reading was easy, suspenseful, had a fast moving plot that had lots of turns and twist. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries.
Mystery, romance, second chance
First book I've read by Ms. Beaumont. Great plot, second chance romance with an original twist and enough detail and buildup to distinguish it from others of the genre. A little slow to start with the character buildup of the second chance aspect of the story and then the mystery just comes roaring in. I have to check out books one thru eight now!
