Exposing a gang’s leader… 

is the only way out of danger

While flying above the Texas border, helicopter pilot Tara Jean “TJ” Baskins witnesses a brutal murder. Now a deadly arms-smuggling gang wants her out of the way. To stay alive, TJ must work with border patrol officer Trace Leyton—her old friend and the man who once betrayed her—to catch the ringleader. But when the search leads to Trace’s family, can TJ trust him to save her?  
 
From Love Inspired Suspense: Courage. Danger. Faith.
 
EXCERPT:

TJ swallowed. “What did the Leytons do to you? You've worked for them most of your adult life.”

“Yeah, I have, and all that time they treated me like I was just another ranch hand. I worked my fingers to the bone for them and once in a while, if I was good, they’d toss me a bone like a dog.”

His jaw tightened. “When I turn you three over, Denby is gonna pay me enough to buy my own horse ranch, far from here and the Leytons. All Bill wanted was his nephew. Now that I got him a bona fide pilot, I'm gonna ask for a bigger cut. You’re a bonus he won't be expecting, and I'll make sure he pays for it.”

MY REVIEW:

An action-packed story of resolving misunderstandings, renewing faith, and finding love where it's least expected . . .

This is the first book I've read by Tanya Stowe, and I was impressed with her excellent character and scene development. There is nothing one-dimensional about this plot! 

Tara Jean Baskins, called 'TJ' by just about everyone, is a skilled pilot who is doing contract work for the Border Patrol Service in Texas. She is not happy when she is paired up with a childhood friend and neighbor, Trace Leyton, to investigate a case involving illegal trade of goods over the border. She has awful memories of how she was treated by Trace's brother, Chad, and Chad's friend, Bill Denby.

Trace wants to diffuse the tension that fills the air whenever he is around TJ, whom he calls Tara Jean. Unfortunately for him, his attempts to discuss the past with her are unsuccessful. She is resistant to forgiving him and refuses to believe that he is remorseful about his behavior back then.

The author has included a strong group of supporting characters who add meaning and depth to the plot. In particular, TJ's widowed mother, Eva Baskins, is a wonderful addition to the story. Eva is the spiritual stronghold for the entire group of struggling younger adults and children who are having difficulty grasping the Lord's purpose and meaning for their lives. Eva became my favorite character in the story because of her sound advice.

The young foster teen, Squirt, and the younger boy, Bobby, are spirited and add some whimsy and levity to an otherwise tense story. The rapport that quickly develops between these two 'misfits' is realistic and sweet.

The final few chapters are literally a wild ride filled with action, red herrings, and danger. I enjoyed what you might call an unconventional type of romance between the two lead characters.

This book is completely clean in language and content.

I received a copy of this book from the author through JustRead Publicity Tours. All of my thoughts and opinions shared here are solely my own.
