Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
What Detective Brady St. John really needs is a relaxing vacation. Unfortunately, just as the sun is setting on his second day at a friend's cabin on Lake Henley, he hears a scream and races to rescue a woman from her would-be killer. When the killer escapes only to return to finish the job, Brady vows to utilize all of his many resources to keep her safe--and catch those who would see her dead.

Financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain doesn't trust many people. And even though she let the detective who saved her life in on a few pertinent facts about why she was being attacked, there are some things you just don't share with a stranger. Little does she suspect that the secret she is keeping just might get them both killed.

My Review:
Code of Valor is a Christian romantic suspense. Emily is repeatedly kidnapped and shot at, but she keeps her wits about her and leaves clues about where she is so that it's easier to find and rescue her. Several people have been hired to come after her, and some seem intent on killing her while the others want information from her. Unfortunately, she doesn't know the information that they want. In addition to surviving, she needs to uncover the information that her friend risked her life to obtain.

The main characters acted realistically and were kind people that I cared about. Emily's past includes an abusive father, running away, and an addiction to pain medication that she has overcome. Emily believes in God even though she's had a hard past, and her faith draws Brady closer to God. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this exciting story.
