In fact, the first all by itself would put most people out of commission for a time, yet Nikki just keeps on going.
She has to. After her sister's disappearance, still unresolved, she is determined to help others not experience the loss, confusion, and lack of closure that she has known. She has devoted her life to finding missing people, and Erika Hamilton is missing. Nikki is determined to solve the mystery no matter what.
I enjoyed reading this third book in the Nikki Boyd Files series and love where Harris is taking her readers as Nikki not only works to solve mysteries, but to discover her true niche in life. Work, family, romance, and health: all have blessings to enjoy and challenges to meet. Nikki is learning how to balance everything God's way, pursuing her calling while contemplating dreams.
I recommend this book to fans of Christian fiction, action-adventure, and mystery. Thank you, Revell, for sending me a complimentary copy in exchange for this review.
Deana5 Stars Out Of 5Action PackedApril 22, 2017DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book starts out with terror in the skies and doesn't let up as Nikki is on the case of a missing woman. What would you do if you were sitting on a plane talking to someone and there is no record of them being on the flight? Nikki knows the missing woman was there and will not stop till the mystery is solved. Who is the man sitting next to him on the plane? I love this character because she is determined, smart , relies on God and is resilient. I loved how the author allows Nikki to be vulnerable at times and allows readers to see in her weakest moments she calls out to God.
I really am not a big fan of flying and the opening scene was so well written I felt like I was on the plane waiting for the crash to happen. The author writes such explosive scenes that pop off the page with heart pounding speed. Nikki has been assigned the case for the missing woman on the plane and gets deeper into a story that had my adrenaline pumping . Nikki and her partner Jack seem to find danger as each turn they take in the case . I began to wonder just how much Nikki was going to be able to endure when she encounters life threatening injuries . The story is a web of deceit, secrets and twists that keep readers on the edge of your seat.
I enjoyed the interactions between Nikki and Tyler. After being apart due to work, they finally hope to spend some much needed time together. Will Nikki's job leave Tyler second guessing their relationship? Can Nikki and her team find the missing woman before disaster strikes? Get ready for action at full throttle in this installment of The Nikki Boyd Files.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Books and Librarything Early Readers Program. The review is my honest opinion.
Hookmeinabook5 Stars Out Of 5Another Intriguing story in the Nikki Boyd files...April 22, 2017HookmeinabookQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Pursued by Lisa Harris is the continuing story of Special Agent Nikki Boyd whose sister was abducted about 10 years before. The book starts as Nikki is on a flight home excited to see her best friend ( and almost boyfriend) Tyler who has been away for months. She imagines how amazing the reunion is going to be and can barely sit still. The lady in the seat beside Nikki saw the picture of Tyler that she was holding and asks about it. Nikki thought that the lady seemed a bit anxious and could tell that she did not like to fly, So Nikki decided to have a small conversation with her to try and distract her from the flight but as they are talking they hear a huge explosion and Nikki discovers the plane is free-falling to the ground. She hears the Pilot say that they will have to make an emergency landing at the airport and as Nikki looks out the window, she notices that the ground is getting closer at an alarming rate. Within seconds the plane crashes and thankfully not many people are fatally hurt. Nikki finds out that the lady's name is Erika and Erika was freaking out because the man next to her died. Erika panics and rushes off the plane and Nikki notices that Erika forgot her watch (which was a family heirloom) so she tries to find Erika among the passengers from the plane but cannot find her anywhere. Nikki asks one of the Airline employees if Erika was reported as seriously hurt and was informed that there was no one on board the plane named Erika and that the seat next to Nikki was empty. Nikki is sure that Erika was real but everyone she asks seems to think Nikki has a concussion and imagined Erika. As Nikki is continuing to search for Erika she finds Tyler waiting for her. As Tyler and Nikki are leaving, Nikki is approached by two FBI agents who inform her that Erika Hamilton was the key witness in an upcoming trial and she was being protected by a US Marshall on the plane. Nikki tells them that the US Marshall is dead and that Erika is missing, so they assign Nikki and her team the task of finding Erika before her ex-boyfriend does because if he found out that she was testifying against him, he would have her killed. The team is racing against the clock because they only have 48 hours to find her. As they follow her trail they discover that anyone she runs into is killed, Is Erika still alive? Then they discover a huge twist that the FBI conveniently forgot to mention... Erika has a daughter and her Ex-boyfriend wants the little girl and is not afraid to kill anyone to get her.
Will the team be able to find Erika and her daughter in time?
After all, The first 48 hours are the most critical...
So I have had the pleasure of reading the first two books of the Nikki Boyd files and this book did not disappoint me at all. The story picked up right where the second book left off and the plot is so good that you do not want to put the book down until the very last page. Though this book is part of a series, It could also be read as a standalone. I loved that even though Sarah's ( Nikki's sister) abduction is always on her mind, it was not the most prominent part of the story. Oh, do not get me wrong, I want to find out what happened to Sarah but with Erika's plight it would have been hard to follow both story lines. I thought that it was interesting that Nikki also has to deal with something in her personal life while on this case, showing us readers that even though someone is in Law Enforcement and they are working to protect us, their lives still go on. They do not get to "pause" it so that they can help us.
The one thing that I did not like was that the body count seemed a bit high but I guess that is something that is a part of any "Criminal/FBI Fiction" plot ( it is technically called Suspense). Though there was a lot of action in the story, it was not gruesome or overly descriptive. Overall, I loved the book and I rate it 5 out of 5 stars! *****
I would like to thank Revell , A division of Baker Publishing Group for allowing me to review this book in exchange for a free copy, I was not required to write a favorable review, just an honest one.
Kara LynnWVAge: 18-24Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5For Anyone Who Enjoys Slower Paced SuspenseApril 22, 2017Kara LynnWVAge: 18-24Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I have read Lisa Harris' previous books in this little series and enjoyed every one. Each book can be read as a stand-alone without missing too much. There's little romance so you don't have to pick up on too much from the other books either, and every mystery is unique and paced to leave you wondering what will happen next. However, this isn't anywhere near high-suspense and isn't quite like Terri Blackstock's fast-paced books, but I think by the last page any reader will be satisfied with the beautiful ending and Tyler and Nicki's sweet and at times subtle romance.
This was a very good conclusion to the Nicki Boyd files and I highly enjoyed each of them and learning more about the same characters and finding depth to their relationships. I kinda consider them a little bit of Nancy Drew for adults which I find highly neat, and I think this book is for anyone looking for a slower paced romantic suspense.
I got this book free from Revell in exchange for my honest review
JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Filled with Twists and Turns!April 21, 2017JoyONew HampshireAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Lisa Harris gives us a story with more twists than O. Henry! Don't bother trying to guess. Just allow yourself to be swept up in this thrilling ride!
I do just want to note that there are some hard deaths in this story. Nothing extremely graphic, but that doesn't make it any less difficult.
The story starts with an airplane crash that makes me seriously reconsider ever flying again! Once Nikki is pulled into the missing person case for her fellow passenger, her life is put on the line again and again. This case is personal is so many ways. Even though Nikki is a seasoned agent, she's a human being, so seeing her struggle with her near death and the hard-hitting angles of the case proved to be realistic. In the midst of Nikki's desperate search, she learns to let go of the plans she has for the future with Tyler...and trust God. In case I've worried anyone, Nikki and Tyler sitting in a tree... ; )
Four Stars! Action packed!! This might be my favorite book in the series. If you like a suspenseful story with a little romance, then you must read this story. Each story is its own separate mystery, however, since there are elements in the backstory and romance that build in each book, I recommend reading Vendetta and Missing first. To my knowledge, this is the last novel in The Nikki Boyd Files. HOWEVER, Vanishing Point: A Nikki Boyd Novel, releases November 7th, 2017. The story is told from a different perspective. Also, rumor has it that we will finally learn what happened to Nikki's sister, Sarah.
I. Can't. Wait.
