Review: Fatal Mistake, Shadow of Suspicion, and Time Search

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.

Review: As always, Susan writes an excellent story. Lots of suspense and danger, hints of attraction, and a wonderful happily-ever-after. Twists and turns kept me reading long past my bedtime and anticipating the moment when I could pick up the book again.

First, computer specialist Laney Ryan’s accused of kidnapping her neighbor’s daughter—and now someone’s trying to kill her. The police don’t believe Laney’s story…except for Detective Mark James, whose instincts say Laney isn’t guilty. Together, Mark and Laney must figure out who really abducted the teen and uncover why they’re framing Laney. But when their search for the truth turns deadly, Mark realizes his feelings for Laney aren’t strictly professional and that he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe. With a dangerous suspect swiftly closing in, can they find the missing girl and clear Laney’s name…before their possible future together is fatally cut short?

Review: I love Christy Barritt books. And this one is no different. Laney’s life turns upside down, and she reacts the way most of us would–for a minute, and then she pull up her big-girl pants and fights back. Thankfully, she has someone on her side. They figure it out, but a few twists and turns in the middle, and a touch of attraction, took hold of me and wouldn’t let go until I finished the story.

This is, of course, another novel ending with a happily-ever-after, ‘cuz if it’s romance, I want happy in the end stories.

In the wake of a recent wave of violence, TEMCO employees are left reeling. While some of the staff are put into hiding, others are left behind to discover the true identity of the mysterious nemesis who is determined to destroy them all. While Crystal, Marc, and Zeke search for clues to unravel the mystery of his real name, their enemy is lurking in the shadows searching for TEMCO’s missing leaders. It’s a race against the clock! And as the hours and seconds tick away, it’s anyone’s guess whose search will be completed first. It’s a classic battle of good versus evil, and the stakes couldn’t be higher!

Review: This is a new author for me. I enjoyed the story a great deal, but because it is part of a series, I was often confused as to the dynamics of character relationships (of which there are many). And while it ends with a satisfying discovery, it was NOT the end of the story, which sort of bummed me out.

It took me several chapters to get into the story, probably because of jumping in mid-stream of the series. I highly recommend getting the first two books before trying to delve into this one.

If you like sci-fi/fantasy/time travel stories, I do recommend this series (though I’ve only read the one book). It is clean and well-written.
