A Need to Protect by Susanne Dietze.

Their peaceful life is about to be shaken up

Protecting them is her priority

Is there room for love?

A safe, quiet life—that’s what shepherdess Clementine Simon wants for her niece and nephew. There’s nothing safe or quiet about globe-trotting cameraman Liam Murphy. It’s only right that life pulled them in separate directions. But when he returns—temporarily—old feelings resurface. Can she take the biggest risk of all…falling in love?

My Review

I purchased a copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


A Need to Protect by Susanne Dietze is book four in her Love Inspired sweet romance series, Widow’s Peak Creek.

I’m loving this series! It has a wonderful mix of unique vocations, history, and romance. A Need to Protect is about a video journalist and a soap-maker who owns sheep. Add in two adorable children and a matchmaking grandma and it’s a wonderful read!

I also love how the story is set around a historical festival celebrating the town’s Gold Rush history. The town’s beautiful setting shine’s through, too. The spiritual side of the story explores anxiety and risk and is beautifully handled. Liam is so sweet in his attempts to help Clementine.

This is such a lovely story in all the ways. I highly recommend it! Now I can’t wait for the next book in the Widow’s Peak Creek series. It releases soon!

  1. Happy Friday!
    I’m just starting Hope Between the Pages by Pepper Basham, so I’ll share a line from there.
    “For the entire afternoon, I waited for a summons to meet with Mrs. Vanderbilt, but the fateful moment never came.”
    I hope you have a good weekend!

  2. I just read the last of Susie’s series. Boo hoo, I want to visit Widow’s Peak Creek again!

    My first line comes from Heirlooms by Sandra Byrd:
    March 1958
    Helen Devries carefully removed her nurse’s cap, fluffing her platinum , back combed bouffant, crackling the Aqua Net laquering it in place.
