Publisher's Description

An FBI agent must protect the woman who can identify a terrorist bomber in bestselling author Susan Sleeman's riveting romantic suspense novel.

Each day could be her last...but not if he can help it.

Tara Parrish is the only person ever to survive an attack by the Lone Wolf bomber. Scared and emotionally scarred by her near death, she goes into hiding with only one plan--to stay alive for another day. She knows he's coming after her, and if he finds her, he will finish what he started.

Agent Cal Riggins has had only one goal for the past six months--to save lives by ending the Lone Wolf's bombing spree. To succeed, he needs the help of Tara Parrish, the one person who can lead them to the bomber. Cal puts his all into finding Tara, but once he locates her, he realizes if he can find her, the Lone Wolf can, too. He must protect Tara at all costs, and they'll both need to resist the mutual attraction growing between them to focus on hunting down the bomber, because one wrong move could be fatal.

    The suspense in Book one of this new series by Susan Sleeman is off the charts. You won't want to put this book down. The romance between the two main characters was wonderful and believeable. This book is a keeper. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    We interrupt our regularly scheduled Saturday Retro Read for a stellar new release because...well, just because.

    I love the way Susan Sleeman spins a romantic suspense! I think I fell truly, deeply in love with her writing style after reading her First Responders series (Love Inspired Suspense) so I was thrilled to discover this new series which has a similar set up. Over the moon giddy, actually. And with good reason.

    Two words. Romantic tension. Oh la la -- you can cut it with a knife. Taut and toe curling all the way through the read. So many reasons why Tara and Cal shouldn't acknowledge that attraction -- and they do make a valiant effort -- which just builds up the tension even more. Delicious.

    And the stalkerish suspense is compelling. A truly sinister bad guy -- brilliantly fleshed out -- not quite to the point where a reader can sympathize with him, but enough that she can understand his insanely flawed logic. The Lone Wolf is a force to be reckoned with which really ups the suspense to a nail-biting thrill.

    And one of the things that Sleeman does best is create a memorable team with lots of camaraderie and purpose. She introduces all the White Knights, an FBI Critical Incident Response Team, in this first book -- and takes enough time to give us a good sense of their personalities and relationships. I'm excited to continue getting to know them all in future books as they each (hopefully) get a chance to star in their own riveting suspense story.

    Fatal Mistake has it all -- intriguing suspense, hair-raising danger and the lure of forbidden love. The only thing keeping me from falling into the woe-is-me-it's-all-over-boohoo blues is the sweet anticipation that comes from knowing Book Two, Kill Shot will be releasing in February.

    As always, Susan Sleeman keeps her readers in the palm of her hand as she moves them along through a story line filled with suspense. In Fatal Mistake we learn right away who is behind the terror plot; it is the motivation that is slowly revealed. As both main and secondary characters find themselves in extreme danger, readers may find themselves tensing up and holding their breath as tension mounts. There is a bit of romance in the book, but it definitely plays second to the suspense.

    The overarching theme of this book deals with taking on responsibility and guilt for things that are out of ones control. Doing so not only robs one of joy, but will likely have a negative impact on the choices one makes. Readers see this play out in the lives of Tara Parrish and Cal Riggins. Tara accidentally stumbles upon the identity of a terrorist bomber, quickly becoming his target. For a while she alludes both him and her would-be protectors, a special FBI unit known as the White Knights. She does not want to be responsible for more lost lives. Cal, a member of the White Knights, is driven by his need to make things right by compensating for lives lost with more lives saved, hoping to quench the guilt that hounds him. As readers will anticipate it is between these two that the romantic tension exists, but will this tension lead to a fatal mistake?

    I thank NetGalley and Faith Words for providing a copy of Fatal Mistake in exchange for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation for providing this review.

    He was coming for her, and he was close.

    Great opening line. Tara Parrish is visiting her aunt, and checks the outbuilding Aunt June rents to Oren Keeler, Taras childhood friend. Only the building is full of bomb-making materials and plans. Oren is the Lone Wolf Bomber the FBI are chasing. And shes just heard his car pull up

    The front of the book had glowing endorsements from several of my favourite authors. Unfortunately, I didnt like it as much as they did. The first chapter promised non-stop thrills from Tara, a translator with the State Department, and Cal Riggins, an FBI agent on the team tracking the Lone Wolf bomber. Her occupation interested me, but it was barely mentioned.

    The opening chapter also promised Tara was a Christianand she was, but her faith seemed to be more of a foxhole faithshe called out to God when trapped and said she trusted Him, but spent most of the novel trying to survive on her own strength. It was as though the spiritual thread was more of an afterthought. Based on the opening chapter, Id expected it to be woven in more organically.

    Once the opening sequence ended, the plot jumped three months into the future. That took something away from the suspense. What followed was a cat-and-mouse chase of Cal trying to protect Tara from Oren. It was solid. It just didnt live up to the level of suspense promised in the opening chapter. I also found the writing a little simplistic. There were no wow linesmy only highlights are things that came across as plot glitches (can an FBI agent really afford tailormade business shirts? Its more common to read novels where money is a problem for the characters.)

    Oren was a great characterdriven and talented, the evildoer who is the hero in his own eyes. His character was revealed layer by layer as the novel progressed, and we were able to unpeel his particular brand of mental instability. I liked that the author didnt try and manipulate my emotions to paint Oren as some kind of victim (other than as a victim of his own misguided thinking). He was evil, pure and simple, but didnt see that himself.

    Overall, Fatal Mistake was a miss for me because it didnt deliver on the outstanding opening. Thanks to Faithwords and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
