Pamela M. Kelley lives south of Boston in Plymouth, MA. She is an avid reader, writer, and foodie.
Sam “Mozart” Reed’s life changed the day his little sister was found abused and murdered when he was fifteen. He’s spent the past nineteen years looking for the serial killer who took his sister from him and ruined his family. Using his connections, and SEAL training, Mozart believes he’s finally tracked the killer to the town of Big Bear, California.
Summer Pack is working in a crappy motel up at Big Bear Lake until she can find something better, more meaningful, more real. Living in an unhealthy situation, she meets a man who is everything she’s ever dreamed about and who helps her see that there are some people in the world who will actually do what they say they will.
But somewhere in Big Bear a killer is waiting to strike again. Watching for the perfect victim.
**Protecting Summer is the 4th book in the SEAL of Protection Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s recommended you read the books in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series.

Quinn Jacobs hasn't had a serious relationship in a long time. He's too busy running the family business, Bakey's--a nationwide bakery chain. He's only in town to get the newest store up and running. But he has noticed the woman in the cottage next to his.
And Paula O'Neill has noticed him too. It's hard not to. Like her, he leaves for work early, and comes home late. Paula has a busy job at a local marketing agency but her favorite day of the week is Saturday when she works at her aunt's bakery, decorating cakes. When her aunt announces that she is retiring and wants Paula to take over the business, she is thrilled. Everything in her life is going so well. She’s even started spending time with her new neighbor Quinn, who is funny and sweet and says that the area is growing on him.
But there's one big problem, Quinn hasn't exactly shared what his family's business is with Paula, and Bakey's is going to be opening right across the street from her aunt's bakery. When they've opened in other locations, competing businesses haven't always survived. Will this kill their chance at romance too?
