Since her husband's tragic death fours years before, 29-year-old Julie Barenson had been reluctant to date, but now feels ready to test the waters. Soon, she is being wined and dined by Richard Franklin, a handsome and sophisticated engineer who treats her like a queen. She also suddenly finds herself entertaining romantic thoughts about Mike Harris, her best friend in the world. Mike is nowhere near as debonair as Richard and has permanent grease stains on his hands from his work as an auto mechanic, but he's funny, loyal, and a great favourite with Julie's beloved dog Singer. When Julie innocently chooses between the two men, she has no idea that she will set off a chain of events at once terrifying, dangerous and, ultimately, deadly. A riveting tale of love, jealousy and obsession, THE GUARDIAN has all the romance that Nicholas Sparks' fans have come to expect as well as a new element of suspense that will keep them turning the pages late into the night.
I love robyn carr's books but this was one of her best. It made me cry but in a happy way. I recomend this book to all Robyn Carr readers. Happy reading Sharon Mendheim

One of His Best
This book was by far one of the best Nicholas Sparks books I've read, and I've read most of them! It was a nice change from his usual love story template novels. ((You know, two people who would never be together fall in love)). This story has added suspense and keeps you "turning the page" as cliche as it sounds. It was great. The themes were more than love and trust, they were also, more specifically, about the DANGERS of love and too much trust. Excellent ending as well.

A MUST READ FOR ALL NICHOLAS SPARKS FANS. IT IS DIFFERENT FROM HIS USUAL LOVE STORIES BUT IS STILL JUST AS SUSPENSEFULL.

Different Approach By Sparks
Instead of the usual love story by Sparks, this one is a love story combined with a stalker thriller. Whereas I enjoy Sparks usual love stories I also enjoyed this. I wouldn't be surprised if this Nicholas Sparks' book becomes a movie too. Quick read, I would recommend it.

Sparks proves he can write thrillers as easily as he writes love stories. This combination love story/thriller about a stalker is well done. You get an inside look into the mind of the stalker, although your intuition sends up red flags long before you can read his thoughts. The love story that develops between Julie and Mike shows the emotional struggles involved in moving a relationship from a solid friendship to something more serious, especially when he had been her late husband's best friend. Again, likeable main characters, witty dialogue, and plenty of action. A twisted psychopath who at first seems too good to be true, and a family pet who has great intuition, as well.
