Stranded

GIVEAWAY
GIUSTI, DEBBY
STRANDED

Amish Country refuge

Colleen Brennan has one goal—take down her sister's killer. But chasing after evidence leaves her in the path of a tornado and stranded in an Amish community. With the killer nearby, Colleen must depend on the kindness of Special Agent Frank Gallagher. Although the army officer is recuperating from a battlefield injury, he wants to help the beautiful woman he rescued from the tornado's fury. He can tell she's hiding something important. But getting her to reveal her secrets may be his most dangerous mission ever.

Military Investigations: Serving their country and solving crimes

My Review:

A complicated suspense sharpens the plot in this page-turning read. Colleen's single-mindedness is going to get her killed. I kept telling her she could trust Frank completely, but she just wouldn't listen. So frustrating. On the other hand, Frank's issues with trust -- both in himself and with Colleen -- were just as frustrating. I told him to give Colleen the benefit of the doubt but, guess what? He didn't listen to me either. I was so wrapped up in the dynamics between those two I could barely concentrate on imminent danger hiding just a page away. And just when I thought things were getting better...they weren't. The kind of read that will keep you on your toes right to the very last page.

    1. I know -- those characters' lives would be so much easier if they listened to the reader which, I guess, would defeat the fun of reading their story. Such a dilemma. Good luck, Merry.

  10. What a great review Kav! Two stubborn and headstrong characters, an amish community and a tornado, what a combination for suspenseful reading! (I have lived through a tornado - it was very scary!)

    1. Yikes, Maryann, I can only imagine how scary that would be. I prefer reading about them in books, I think. Good luck.
