Bodyguard Sally Wilson has become the target. Can she save her own life as well as her daughter’s?
Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, but when Sally’s young daughter, Emma, becomes the target of child traffickers, and the little girl’s biological father wants Sally dead, the Christmas season takes a dark turn.
Police officer, Dillon Brady, responds to a call for help at the home of his friend and Protection Inc. bodyguard, Sally Wilson. When their relationship tips beyond friendship, Dillon is determined no one will hurt Sally or her daughter again. Will his resolve be enough?
Sally is drawn to Dillon. He’s a natural with Emma and appears to care about both of them. Sally’s been fooled before by a man she believed loved her, but what if it’s an act? Can Sally learn to trust again and follow her heart, or will Dillon get relegated to the friend zone?
Who doesn’t love a good book set during Christmas? Admittedly, I am one of those Hallmark Christmas movie people. A book with Christmas in October? Hmm, was it really worth the read? I checked out the cover, which I loved! The colors Kimberly used are some of my favorites. I was then drawn to the categories associated with the book. The book is categorized as a Christian romantic suspense novella. All things I love. My interest was officially piqued.
Truthfully, I wasn’t sure what to expect with the book. Personal Threat is book five in the series, so I wondered if it would make sense. The book turned out to be a bit different than I expected. It served as a great standalone book and was definitely a page-turner. I read the book in one day; I could not put it down.
As shared by the author, “Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, but when Sally’s young daughter, Emma, becomes the target of child traffickers, and the little girl’s biological father wants Sally dead, the Christmas season takes a dark turn.” Boy did it ever! Although a novella, the book had plenty of great surprises around each corner. Without skipping ahead in the book, I found myself wondering what would happen. I love being drawn into a good book!
My plan now is to go back and read the rest of the books in this series. Kimberly has a fantastic way with words and delivers a story that keeps you captivated the entire time.
If you are interested in a good romantic suspense book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, speculating what else could possibly occur, then this book is for you!
I highly recommend Personal Threat. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

More from Kimberly
Every year since I signed the contract for my debut novel, a book set at Christmastime, I have made it a goal to write a Christmas book, usually a novella. This year, Personal Threat is that book.
I wrapped up the series with Personal Threat. My husband came up with the title for this one because the threat in this book is very personal for one of the Protection Inc. team members.
We first met Sally in book two of the series and it seemed only fitting she starred in a book of her own. We also get to know Dillon better in this book which for me was super fun to write. He’s played an important and growing role as the series has progressed and is one of my favorite characters in the series.
