ABOUT THE BOOK:

This cold case has suddenly warmed up.
She only hopes they won't get burned.


Criminal psychologist Erin Larson's dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her life in a boating accident and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job to care for her mother in Montana. At least there Erin is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.

Nathan Campbell's father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin's help to solve the case. She's certainly good at what she does. The only problem? She's his ex.

As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted--and the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.

"Thrilling."--Publishers Weekly

"The pacing is perfect; continuous, mind-boggling action, with plenty of time for unfinished business."--Interviews and Reviews

"Present Danger starts with a bang and never lets up."--Rachel Dylan, bestselling author of the Capital Intrigue series

MY REVIEW:

 

If I were asked to use only one word to describe this book, I would use the word, 'complicated'.
 
The characters are complicated, and the relationships between the characters are complicated. The settings are complicated, and the plot is very complicated. All of these complex elements add up to give readers a suspenseful, enjoyable thrill ride from page one to the final sentence.
 
The lead woman in this story, Erin Larson, and her mother, Celia, are harboring secrets from their respective pasts. Deep, dark secrets which are agonizingly exposed as the story moves on from one stressful event to another. 

Nathan Campbell is a stand-up guy who works as a police detective in a small-town in Montana. He is loyal, dedicated, and determined in his search to figure out who and what are behind the traumas which seem to be befalling everyone around him . . . 

Through the support and encouragement of a few good friends, Erin and Nathan unravel the whole hidden story reaching back to events from years ago and leading up to the present.

The faith element in this novel was strong with examples of prayer and spiritual thoughts of the characters sprinkled throughout the story. The book is completely clean in language and content.

Highly-recommended to fans of Christian/clean romantic suspense, Christian/clean thrillers, Christian/clean romance, and Christian/clean psychological thrillers.

I received a paperback copy of this book from the publisher through the Revell Reads Blogger Program. All of my comments and opinions shared here are solely my own.
