Detective Luke Carter, new to the St. Louis PD, wants to know why. Before he can answer that question, however, the FBI weighs in and Kristin suddenly finds herself in the middle of international intrigue--and in the sights of the ruthless mastermind behind an ingenious and deadly, scheme. Can this cold-blooded killer be stopped before more people die . . . including Kristin?
Three-time RITA Award-winner and "queen of inspirational romantic suspense" (Library Journal) Irene Hannon doesn't disappoint in this edge-of-your-seat thriller that will have readers up late as they rush toward the explosive conclusion.
I'll admit that I've never read anything in this genre before! It's never really appealed to me but I still asked for a copy when the Revell email showed up in my inbox. AND BOY AM I GLAD THAT I SAID YES. The plot of this story was spot on! All the small details made it really believable and gave it a really authentic feel.
The characters were all very well done! I loved the "Treehouse Gang"'s camaraderie. I love it when childhood friends banter. The protectiveness Rick and Colin had for Kristen is addooorabbllle. And then Luke's sister was amazing. The rest of the characters, main characters included, were very realistic and fleshed out.
I love mystery and this one was no exception! I was not expecting the bad guy to be who it was. It was very elaborate and I applaud Hannon from making this such a complex mystery!
Very well, fine, yes, I loved the romance (don't I always?). It takes a while for it to get off the floor and then they have to wait a while because of stuff (#spoilers). But when it gets off, it's going.
The only thing I could have done without is a few things I'll mention in the content section. But they weren't so bad that they ruined the book for me.
There are a few kisses towards the end (this is not the problem part) and there are a few comments that I really could have done without. But the comments are somewhat vague.
Yet another enjoyable read from Revell!
Just a warning, I'm going to have a few book reviews this month along with the Shared WIP Tag xD Have you read A Hidden Peril? Do you want to? What was the last thing you read?
I received a free copy of this book from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest opinion.
