Book description from Amazon:
“Reeling from a negotiation gone wrong, FBI Special Agent April Ramos is caught off guard when a frazzled young woman shoves a crying baby into her arms, then disappears. Worry for the child’s safety quickly turns to fear when a man claiming to be the girl’s father abducts them at gunpoint. April puts her hostage negotiation skills to use to learn more about who she’s dealing with: Jason Snyder, a fugitive accused of murder.
As Jason spins a tall tale about being framed for the killing of his business partner, April must sort through his claims to find the truth. A truth that becomes all the more evident after April overhears a conversation between Jason and the local sheriff and realizes something more sinister may be happening in their small town of Sweet Briar, Texas. But aligning herself with a known fugitive to uncover the burden of proof could cost April her job . . . or worse, her life and the lives of other innocent people.”
Readers who love DiAnn Mills’ books will love this one! This is quite a unique storyline for an action/suspense novel. The first chapter of the book has at least two surprising twists. At one point, I wasn’t quite sure who was the “bad guy” or the “good guy”, and could hardly put the book down. I gave up sleep to finish the story. Action, suspense, romance—this story has it all. Adding in great characters and dialogue make this a well-written, exciting story.
It’s always a pleasure to read a Christian suspense novel with no foul language or embarrassing scenes. If you’ve never read one of DiAnn Mills’ books, begin with this one. You’ll soon become one of her faithful readers.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
