"....but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."

"The Defender's Duty" by Shirlee McCoy

I bought a bunch of these Christian "dime novels" at a library sale years ago.  Picked up this one to read and it is the 3rd or 4th book in a series of "The Sinclair Brothers"  That's okay though, it was still a pretty good book.
The only message in the book is that you should follow God, but it was not a very deep message.  The book was pretty shallow but well written.  Had a good plot line and a surprise ending.  It is about a cop who was almost killed by a hit and run and someone is still trying to kill him so he is pushing his friends and family away from him to keep them safe.  He almost lost his legs and is in a lot of pain when he walks or stands for too long.  His brother hires a home health nurse to take care of him.  He doesn't want her hurt so tries to get rid of her.
The book has the typical love at first sight scenario most dime novels have.  They are so short there is not time to develop a relationship.  Most of the book occurs within one week.  These books are great when you don't have time to get sucked into a long novel.
Happy Reading!
