A fun romantic suspense read with just the right amount of tension to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Grace Callahan is trying to get her life back on track. After suffering the loss of her daughter and going through a divorce, she has moved back to Dallas and is helping others as a psychologist.  As the anniversary of her daughter’s death approaches, she readies herself for an emotional roller coaster.  Little does she know it is about to get a lot worse.  She is drawn into a major terrorist scheme involving murder, cyber hacking and the reintroduction of an old friend.  Detective Nate Quinn is dealing with his own demons when he lands the case of a murder that leads him to Grace Callahan, someone he hasn’t seen or thought of in years.  Finding out how deeply she is involved in the case, even without her realizing it, and trying to keep them both alive is a bit much for his first case back after being involved in a bombing that killed eighteen, including his partner.  Together, Grace and Nate will have to work together to stop the cyber-attack and keep the country safe.

Lisa Harris’s newest installment is definitely one that will keep readers on the edge of their seats and questioning everything they think they know of the characters until the very end. I love when I read a romantic suspense book that is not filled with sappy romance scenes.  To me, the romance is built by the tension and the way the characters come together by tackling the tough moments and coming out the other side stronger.  Grace was a great character.  She was strong and determined and even though she wanted to give up at times after the struggles she faced, she didn’t.  I also loved that in certain scenes it might have been convenient for a big strong male character to come in and save the day didn’t happen.  Grace was able to pull up her boot straps and do just fine on her own.  The ending felt a little rushed and I was hoping for a little more but still not much to complain about.  I hope that we can see more from these character in the future.  I recommend this to readers that love Lisa Harris and romantic suspense reads.  If you haven’t read anything by Lisa Harris before this would be the perfect book to get you started with her writing.
