About the book:
Title: The Traitor’s Pawn
Author: Lisa Harris
Genre: Christian Suspense
Release Date: March 31, 2020
When FBI agent Jack Shannon arrives in Corpus Christi, Texas, he is focused on one thing: find the man who has been selling encrypted government secrets to the Chinese through online birding chat rooms. But when a senator is shot during a hunting trip and the woman he was with is abducted, Jack agrees to join the search–especially when he discovers that the kidnapping victim is Aubrey Grayson, a woman he was once in love with.
As the search continues, it becomes clear the senator may not have been the intended victim–and Aubrey may be connected to the other case Jack is supposed to be working on. Can Jack untangle the knots before it’s too late? And when he learns the truth, will it be too painful to get past?
Join the hunt for the truth–and a traitor–in this tension-laden story of secrets, betrayal, and second chances.
With the suspense starting out so strong from the first few pages, I wondered how the author would manage to keep the story moving without losing the momentum.
I needn’t have worried. Lisa Harris stayed on top of the game and pushed the suspense all the way till the end. Just when I thought I had a handle on what might happen next, the story turned another direction and kept me on my reading toes.
An excellent depiction of love and the ultimate choice of forgiveness.
I love that Aubrey struggles so much with the idea of forgiveness. It’s not always easy to forgive, and her reluctance helped make her real.
Aubrey and Jack’s friends-to-something-more allowed for a smooth romantic transition as they worked together. Overcoming their own personal obstacles in regards to their potential as a couple felt natural and gave a little something extra to the story.
