About the book:
Title: Deadly Intentions
Author: Lisa Harris
Genre: Christian Mystery and Suspense
Release Date: August 6, 2019
Research scientist Caitlyn Lindsey is convinced that someone is taking out her team one by one. First, a friend and research partner was killed in a home invasion. Three months ago, her boss died in a suspicious car accident. Four days ago, another partner supposedly committed suicide. And now Caitlyn herself has miraculously survived a hit-and-run. Afraid for her life with nowhere to turn, she reaches out to one of the victim’s husbands, Detective Josh Solomon.
Though initially skeptical about Caitlyn’s theory, Josh soon realizes that the attack that took his wife’s life was anything but random. Now the two of them must discover the truth about who is after Caitlyn’s team–and what their end game is–before it’s too late.
In this nail-biting thriller, award-winning author Lisa Harris will have you believing that there’s no such thing as random.
Josh has suffered terrible loss and heartache. The last thing Caitlyn wants is to force Josh to relive the pain of the last year. But she has no choice. With no one else she can trust, Caitlyn pulls Josh into a deadly game.
There was so much action within the pages of Deadly Intentions I don’t quite know where to start. First off, you’ll be sucked in straight from chapter one. I ‘one more chapter’ed my way through the entire book in a single sitting. I could not put it down.
Josh and Caitlyn make a perfect team. Times when they could have doubted one another, their trust made the reading that much better.
Neither is safe, and someone wants them silenced at all costs. Normally, I don’t care for books with bad cops, but Deadly Intentions is the exception. The intrigue and subterfuge woven throughout the novel keep you twisting every which way as you try and figure out who is good and who is bad.
While the romance remained low-key, the final pages felt just a teeny bit over-the-top. But I’ll let that slide. The adrenaline rush I experienced more than made up for the suddenness.
Caitlyn’s emotional insecurities brought up some valid relationship quibbles and her conversation with Josh toward the end was both heartfelt and tear-worthy.
If you enjoy fast-paced action with a hint of romance, you should pick up this book.
