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.
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).
