ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Explosive Christmas Showdown
A bomber brings terror to Christmasas the presents go tick…tick…boom.
“We need to search the rest of the floor, just in case—” Their chiming cell phones interrupted Zac’s words.
Olive’s senses heightened at what she guessed was about to happen. She read the text.
The game isn’t over.
She glanced at Zac.
His eyes widened as he checked the joint text.
There were more bombs in the building, and it was up to them to find them.
This is the first book I have written by this skilled suspense author, but it definitely will not be the last!
From the first sentence in the story to the last, this book keeps readers on their toes and actively engaged. The action is almost nonstop, and there is an edgy atmosphere around everything that happens in the story because of the creepy villain—the Jingle Bell Bomber.
The main characters, criminal investigative analyst Olive Wells and Constable Zac Turner, are three-dimensional characters intent on finding 'JB', as the bomber likes to be called, no matter what it takes. And it takes a lot of backbreaking detective work, patience, and courage to track down the killer before he kills anyone else. Olive is required to overcome many fears in this story, and she grows a lot as an individual as time progresses.
Zac's K-9 detector dog, Ziva, is my favorite character in this story. This well-trained canine officer is a highly-qualified bomb detector as well as a search and rescue veteran. She is highly-intelligent, intuitive, and loving. She senses when her human friends are in need of some comfort or assistance, and I felt her presence in the story took the emotional side of the story to a higher level.
The faith element in the story is strong and positive. Christians who are struggling with their faith find support and encouragement from those surrounding them. The rekindled romance between the two lead characters is realistic and filled with ups and downs. The story is completely clean in language and content.
I received a copy of this book from the author through JustRead Publicity Tours. All of my opinions and thoughts shared here are solely my own.
