bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Relevant plot, great charactersJuly 11, 2019bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I really liked this novel. I don't know which was better, the plot or the characters. The plot could be out of today's newspaper. The FBI is investigating a man trafficking young women and desires to shelter their star witness in a safe place. Chief Tess O'Rourke is unsure her remote Oregon town is the right place. She finds out all too soon that her instincts about a dangerous situation were all too true.
And the characters. I really liked Tess, chief of police. She is dedicated to her job of protecting others. Her responsibility weighs heavy on her. She will not let a crime go until she has given it all she can. She's been hurt in the past and has issues about trusting God.
Oliver is such a great pastor, comforting the devastated and faithfully vising a prisoner. He knows no one of beyond redemption and sees hope when others only see hopelessness. What faith he has in God's redeeming grace and love.
I like that the hint of romance in the novel is subtle and takes a back seat to the danger and suspense permeating the novel. There is a strong spiritual aspect to the novel, fitting well into the progressive action.
A relevant plot, great characters, a good deal of intrigue and suspense, an unexpected twist at the end, all the elements of a good romantic suspense.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
MarilynCoral Springs, FLAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great seriesJuly 11, 2019MarilynCoral Springs, FLAge: 35-44Gender: femaleThis is book three in the Line of Duty series, even though this is a stand alone book, books one and two (Crisis Shot and Lethal Target) gives you lots of history into the characters in this book and they are both good reads.
All three books focus on Police Chief Tess O'Rourke. This one she must help protect not only her town but a high-profile human trafficking witness, whom is not the easiest person to protect. When her weak faith is put to the test will Tess learn to rely on God or turn from him? Tess and the handsome pastor Oliver, sometimes balance each other and sometimes they appear to clash.
Janice Cantore does an amazing job at putting you in the mind and heart of the police. Her books are full of suspense, problem solving and more. There is a touch of romance in this one but it is by far not the main focus. If you like contemporary police suspense type books you will like this one. There are many twist and turns in this book.
