I 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
Lisa 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.
I received a copy of Pursued by Lisa Harris from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. All opinions expressed are my own.
Lisa Harris returns with another fast-paced, high stakes case for her heroine Nikki Boyd. Anticipation pulses through Nikki as her flight nears the Nashville airport. Excitement over her reunion with Tyler instantly turns to fear when an explosion sends her plane plummeting to the ground. In the aftermath, Nikki searches for the woman who had been sitting next to her on the plane, only to find to discover the airlines has no record of Erika. Thats when the FBI steps in
If youve read the other books in this series, you know how driven Nikki is to find these missing persons. 10 years after her sisters abduction, these cases continue to be personal vice dutytheyre her obsession. Either fearless or foolhardy, she presses forward; determined to beat Erikas pursuer to his mark.
Up to this point, Ive enjoyed the pace of Nikki and Tylers relationship, expecting Pursued to be a turning point for them. Those whove been hanging on for the romance will find love deferred once again. However, suspense junkies will thrill over how much action Harris packs into 48 hours!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, a favorable review was not required of me. All opinions expressed are my own.
I survived a plane crash. The turbulence was terrible on this flight. I was seated on Row 29 on a flight into Nashville when the plane dipped, and a deafening explosion rocked the back of the Airbus. My shoulder slammed against the seat as the plane skidded for several seconds as the pilot tried to save us. Baggage tumbled, the air smelled like smoke and burning plastic. The woman in the middle seat clutched my forearm. "I think he is dead. The man next to me. He's dead" she said.
Lisa Harris is an amazing writer, and this is the first book written by her that I have read. I felt that I was her, Nikki Boyd, the main character in this fast action book filled with twists and turns. I love a book that opens up my imagination and allows me to close my eyes and picture myself as that character, this book did just that. I felt her every move, her every thought, and even her pain and frustration. Ms. Harris is a great story teller, every word on every page was easily absorbed, creating a picture in my mind of each place, person and situation Nikki Boyd found herself in. I couldn't put this book down.
Nikki Boydis sitting next to a woman on this plane that holds the key to this entire mystery. Only she disappears right after the plane crash leaving behind a broken bracelet that Nikki finds. This bracelet is the first in a mystery that even the FBI can't figure out. Nikki also has a personal love story, a missing sister, and and a determination that is unmatched. Just as I thought I had the answer, a new twist, including a prison kidnapping would change my mind, I would find myself starting over trying to help Nikki solve this case and find this woman. So many times, I felt like I was there beside her and as determined as she was. I don't want to go into detail about this story, because unraveling this story is the real pleasure of this book. It is fast, as this story takes place in only 48 hours.
Pursued - The Nikki Boyd Files is the third book in the Nikki Boyd Files series.It is published by Revelle, a division of Baker Publishing so I knew it would be a well made book, one that I would enjoy holding in my hands, feeling every page. Revelle is a great publisher and I am a big fan of their books. This book is categorized as Fiction, Romantic Suspense. You will find no bad words, no vulgarity. Another reason why I am a fan of Revelle.
The type is larger than most and the spacing is wide enough that it is a very good quality book, even though it is a paper book, the cover is embossed, sturdy and beautiful. The quality of paper and binding makes this book a great gift.You can learn more about Lisa Harris, the author on her website www.lisaharriswrites.com.Her books are available in ebooks, bookstores and on-line. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
I really didnt think this series could get any better, but it did. Pursued was a fantastic suspense novel from start to finish. Before I get into all the ins and outs, let me tell you a little of what its all about.
Nikki Boyd is ready to pursue a long-term relationship with the man of her dreams. Tyler is finally back from his three-month work trip to Liberia and shes on her way to meet him back home in Nashville when suddenly her plane crash-lands. Understandably shaken from the traumatizing event, things go from bad to worse when the police tell her that the woman who was sitting next to her doesnt exist. Worried she might literally be losing her mind, she dives head-first into finding the missing woman. Thus begins an action-packed case involving a prison riot, murder, and a kidnapped child that leaves Nikki exhausted but resolute in pursuing justice to the best of her ability.
Lisa Harris never disappoints. Every time one of her suspense novels release, I feel like a kid in a candy store. If youve read my previous reviews for Vendetta and Missing, you know how much I adore this seriesand how much I ship Nikki and Tyler. Meaning the excitement level was especially high when this book came out. Although we didnt get a lot of Nikki/Tyler time, this thrill ride of a story was enough to keep me plenty engaged. I loved exploring more of what was going on in Nikkis head, like her fears, hopes, and desires. The characters in this series have always felt incredibly genuine and emotion-driven, adding greatly to an already killer story. The whole book takes place in a matter of a couple days and the non-stop action is enough to leave you breathless!
Pursued is a brilliantly executed romantic thriller filled with intense action and clean romance. If youre a fan of the genre, you wont want to miss the Nikki Boyd Files. I am highly anticipating the next in this nail-biting series, Vanishing Point.
