    This review was written for Dangerous Passage, Southern Crimes Series #1.
    Avery North is a wonderful character. She has a huge conflict going on inside trying to balance her job as a police detective and her family commitments. This whole conflict is very well presented as she works her way through leading the team trying to solve the murders of 2 Jane Does. Along with this inner conflict she is dealing with personal heartache from losses in the past that keep coming to her mind as the case progresses. She is a very realistic character that has been developed with incredible thought to detail.

    She is surrounded by a number of other well written characters both in her family and on her team. I really enjoyed getting to know each of them. I hope that I learn more about them in future books in this series.

    The plot leaves nothing to be desired. It is very intricately woven and proceeds to build throughout the novel. It is very nicely interspersed with sections that work to develop the characters and their relationships. This novel has a very nice balance between the two. I was kept guessing throughout the story as to exactly how the murders were committed and how they tied in with other criminal activity that was going on.

    I like a good police mystery and this is a good one. The heroine is Avery North, Atlanta detective. She is on the case of the death of two young Asian women, each with a specific tattoo. Also involved is medical examiner Jackson Bryant. With support from Jackson, Avery pursues clues that take her to the terrifying world of human trafficking.

    I really like Avery as a character. She is tough and a strong protagonist. She is also a widow and mom of a tween, trying to juggle all of her responsibilities. Coming into the picture is Jackson. It looks like romance may be on the horizon.

    I liked the police work. The case Avery is working on is complex. She also has to deal with her own emotional issues as she pursues the murderer. Her brother had been murdered in a police operation that went bad and she is determined to find out who was responsible for it. That distracts her at times.

    I really enjoyed the novel. At the end, we are left hanging with a clue from her brother's death. I will certainly read the sequel.

    Unlike a simple romance, the characters in Dangerous Passage are not young and flighty. Widowed, with a teenage daughter, Detective North deals with her grief, teen angst, and a new relationship. These relationships make the story more complex and interesting, then the murder mystery becomes more than a simple murder mystery. The suspense level is low, but the mystery complexity is high enough to make up for it. The focus of the book is on a crime that is growing across the world, human trafficking. This book has a strong Christian aspect.

    I recommend this book to lovers of good clean police mysteries, with a nice romance along side.

    Atlanta Detective Avery North has just been called in from her day off to investigate a murder. The victim was a young Asian female with a magnolia tattoo, similar to a recent unsolved crime, and Avery is motivated to solve this murder before another girl suffers the same fate.

    She is assisted by her partner, Mitch, and by Jackson Bryant, the associate medical examiner for the force. Avery and Jackson have recently started dating— he's the first man she's had more than one date with since her husband died three years ago, leaving her with a daughter. Avery also has family issues. Her father has recently retired from the police force, her brother was murdered on the job four months earlier, and his killer is still at large. She struggles to balance the competing demands of God, family, a full-time job and now dating, and this felt very real.

    This is the first book in the new Southern Crimes series, and I'll certainly be keen to read more in the series. It's got everything I look for in Christian romantic suspense: intelligent and likeable yet imperfect characters, a strong plot with plenty of suspense and a developing romantic subplot, good writing, and an underlying Christian theme. It's dealing with some big issues—modern slavery—but manages to do it without getting too graphic. Recommended.

    Thanks to Revell and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

    Do you like suspense novels? Clean romance? Then this is the book for you. This is my first time reading anything by Lisa Harris and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to read, and enjoy. From the very beginning of the book, I was hooked, and until the suspect was revealed, I was clueless.

    Kudos to Ms. Harris. I look forward to more titles from her in the future.

    ***I received this book from the author/publisher for purposes of review. The above is my honest opinion.***
