Annie Delacorte's husband was killed and the people responsible now want to keep Annie from testifying against them. Annie and her child go into the witness protection program to keep them safe until the trial. U.S. marshal Hunter Davis is assigned to protect Annie while in the program. He's a pretty straight-forward, by-the-book kinda guy, who never becomes emotionally involved with a case. Annie is different though. No matter how he hard he tries to remain aloof he's drawn to her and her daughter. Annie feels drawn to Hunter as well but knows to him, she's just a job. After the trial, will they go there separate ways or will she remain Safe by the Marshal's Side?

I always enjoy Shirlee McCoy's books and this is no exception. Learning what it would be like to be in the witness protection program was interesting. I'm sure it would be extremely difficult and I think the author did a good job of showing those emotions. Annie was a strong woman for all that happened to her. Her daughter, Sophia, was really cute. Hunter was a great guy who had a tender heart. He was also good at his job. Though this was not an edge of your seat type story, there was some suspense and a mystery that remains open ended, leaving room for the other books in the Witness Protection series. There was some romance but I would say it's on the light side. One thing I really appreciated about Annie was the realization that though she was alone (because of being in the Witness Protection Program) she really wasn't because the Lord had never left her. He was watching over her and her daughter. Overall Safe by the Marshal's Side is a good start to the Witness Protection series.
