Review 'Answers For Julie' by Cate Beauman 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.

My Review:

‘Answers For Julie’ is the ninth book in the Bodyguards of L.A. County series. In the last year I’ve read the first books in this series and totally fell in love with Cate Beauman’s characters and her writing. So since it had been a while since I read the previous book in the series, it was definitely time to read ‘Answers For Julie’.

Maybe it was because I haven’t read a Cate Beauman book for a while, or maybe this book was just very good, which is the right answer I think, but ‘Anwers For Julie’ really blew my mind. I loved this book! And I just didn’t want to stop reading! I read all 562 pages in only one day and I read till late at night. It really was just so good.

Julie Keller lives a nice and quiet life in the town she grew up in and has so many beautiful memories. What she didn’t expect was to see her best friend, and once love of her life, to walk back into her little hometown after ten years.
Bodyguard Chase Rider has come back to the little town of Bakersfield to sell his grandma’s house. But when he sees Julie, a lot of painful memories come back. Julie and Chase try to ignore each other. But the chemistry and connection they shared all those years ago is still there. And when Julie’s life suddenly turns upside down, Chase can’t help but try to help her out.

Julie and Chase were two amazing characters I loved reading about. From the very first page their chemistry was coming out of the pages. And I just didn’t want to stop reading about them. I loved how ‘Answers For Julie’ was just as great a romance story, as a mystery and a thriller. Just like the characters I was dying to know what was the deal with Julie’s past. And it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.

Although ‘Answers For Julie’ is already the ninth book in this series, I still can’t get enough of this amazing series. Each book is filled with romance and mystery and I just love getting to know all these characters.

‘Anwers For Julie’ is definitely my new favorite Cate Beauman book. And if you haven’t started this series yet, I suggest you’ll start ASAP!
