ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Deadly Connection
Author: Jennifer Pierce
Publisher: Anaiah Press
Release Date: October 20, 2020
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense
Private Investigator, Reid Lucas, and his mentor, Joe Lockhart, haven’t spoken in years, but when Joe wants to meet in a small-town diner, Reid’s interest is piqued. Without explanation, Joe calls and tells Reid he has five minutes to get waitress, Quinn Matthews, and her son out of the diner before they’re kidnapped by the group of thugs about to walk through the diner’s front door.
Quinn Matthews’ life is simple and safe, exactly how she likes it—until Reid Lucas walks into the diner. Now, she and her son are running for their lives, and she has no idea why. But when the father of her son shows up and dies saving them, she realizes they all have one deadly connection: Joe Lockhart. Now, she’ll have to trust the mysterious private investigator to not only save their lives but connect her past to her present so they can figure out who is after them. And why.
As the danger escalates, unexpected feelings arise. Reid doesn’t believe he’s worthy of Quinn’s love–or God’s. And Quinn is too worried about having her heart broken again and the effect of having a new man in her son’s life. Can they let go of their preconceived notions of love and relationships, or are they doomed to just let go of each other?
IN MY OPINION
In Deadly Connection, Jennifer Pierce keeps readers engaged with high-stakes action, sweet moments of connection, and a suspense that carries its weight throughout the book.
Where Reid is competent and a protector, Quinn stands strong in her faith and the belief that even in these dangerous times, God is in control. Her love for her son is fierce, and Reid admires that in her.
I appreciated that Pierce didn’t make her characters invincible or her bad guys incompetent. Quinn and Reid get hurt (and even land in the hospital a couple times). And even though I had an inkling of who the culprit of the attempted kidnappings was, the ride to get to where I could confirm my suspicions was white-knuckled and entertaining.
One thing I would have liked at the end was some sort of explanation or apology from Joe, but it’s such a small want, I still recommend this book to fans of fast-paced romantic suspense you can read in one sitting.
