Pursued (Nikki Boyd #3) by Lisa Harris

My Review

Nikki Boyd is back and what an entrance she makes!

From the first pages, I was drawn into this story. At the end of Missing, readers were left with the question of what would happen between Nikki and Tyler. And we’re still wondering about it as Nikki’s plane heads toward Nashville—and Tyler. But what is supposed to be a tender homecoming quickly turns into a case when the woman who was sitting next to Nikki on the plane disappears.

My Review

In a story that is not only relevant to the dangers facing travels in foreign countries today, Lisa Harris allows readers to experience both the beauty and the dangers of the Africa in Desert Secrets.

I loved both of these characters so much. While Lexi Shannon is put in a position that leaves her vulnerable over and over again, she is also tenacious and brave. She has a good heart and that shows through over and over again. And Colton Landry…let’s just sigh here at this hero. A man who is determined to not only to keep his brother-in-law safe but also who refuses to leave Lexi behind.

Nikki Boyd Files Book #2

While I realize I could never be a police investigator or detective, I am fascinated by the process. Romantic Suspense books with strong female law enforcement officials are usually an engaging and fast read for me. Lisa Harris’s Nikki Boyd series has become a fast favorite.

Missing (book 2 in The Nikki Boyd Files) find Nikki and her crew at the scene of a double homicide. They’ve been called in because two people are missing and as Nikki, Jack, and Gwen are well-aware, the first 48 hours are crucial in any missing persons investigation. And, I have to admit, I love that this book is set in Nashville (my city)

But Nikki is also human, dealing with her growing feelings for her best friend’s widow, a brother who has a knack for getting in trouble, and her own guilt over the disappearance of her younger sister over a decade ago, this woman is someone I feel compassion toward. And someone I’m cheering to find her happy endings—in both love and in closure for her sister.

If you read Vendetta, you will enjoy reconnecting with Nikki, Jack, Gwen, Tyler, and Liam. But if you missed the first book and want to jump right into the second (available everywhere July 5), Harris doesn’t leave her readers feeling like they’re jumping in during the middle of the story. You get just enough background to know what happened in the first book without feeling like you are re-reading the entire book again. Although, I’m sure after reading Missing, you’ll be hooked and want to read book one. I’m already ready for book three (due out Spring 2017).

Hidden Agenda by Lisa Harris

When I was in high school and then again when I was in college I worked in Christian bookstores. I remember the Christian fiction section. It was small (maybe five or six bookshelves with five or six shelves on each side). Thankfully, more authors have chosen this genre over the years. I feel like there are so many authors I have yet to read and then I read a book by a new-to-me author and think Why am I just now learning about this person?. As was the case with Lisa Harris.

hidden agenda lisa harris

Michael Hunt aka Michael Lindley aka Liam Quinn has been deep undercover for eight months. In his quest for justice, he has given up a lot. His family and friends believe he’s dead and the police think he’s a dirty cop. Now his cover has been blown and he is certain he won’t be able to cheat death this time around. And then he is rescued by two people who should be his enemies. Olivia and Ivan Hamilton are the son and daughter of the man Michael is gathering evidence on. As the three of them escape and evade their pursuers, Michael deals with whether his family and friends will forgive him, Olivia tries to come to terms with the fact the people in her life are not who she believed them to be, and they both struggle with the attraction they are feeling for the other. After running from both the law and the drug cartel, is there a possibility a man and woman from two different worlds have a chance at their own happiness?

From the first page, this book was non-stop action. Just when you think the trio is safe, something else happens to bring the action back into full swing. Hidden Agenda is the third book in Harris’s Southern Crimes trilogy but the first one I’ve read. While I wasn’t at all lost reading this book, I do want to read the other two just to get a better understanding of Michael’s sisters (who make an appearance in book three).
