Life Flight by Lynette Eason


I know I can always expect a page turner when I pick up one of Lynette Eason’s books. Life Flight did not disappoint. In fact the action and suspense were practically in overdrive for much of the book.

The story revolves around Penny, an EMS helicopter pilot whose copter is forced down during a storm. With her cell service inoperable, Penny leaves the rest of her team to tend to the patient and sets out to find a phone to get some help. That’s when the story begins to get really interesting! Penny encounters a serial killer on the run from the law and lives to tell about it with the help of Holt, an FBI special agent. From that point, the story takes quite a few unexpected turns and things are not always what they seem.   No spoilers here – you MUST read this one for yourself.

Life Flight is one great book and I am looking forward to the next installment of this series. It is definitely on my TBR list.

EMS helicopter pilot Penny Carlton is used to high-stress situations, but being forced to land on a mountain in a raging storm with a critical patient–and a serial killer on the loose–tests her skills and her nerve to the limit. She survives with FBI Special Agent Holt Satterfield’s help. But she’s not out of the woods yet.

In the ensuing days, Penny finds herself under attack. And when news reaches Holt that he may not have gotten his man after all, it will take all he and Penny have to catch a killer–before the killer catches one of them.

The Chase by Lisa Harris


Book 2 in The U.S. Marshalls series, The Chase takes up a few months after the previous book ends. Madison James is ready to get back to work after her recovery from a serious injury.  Her boss would like for her to ease her way back into action but when a bank robbery takes place on her first day back on the job, Madison convinces her partner Jonas to allow her to work the case with him.

As Madison and Jonas investigate the latest of a series of crimes, it soon becomes apparent that the perpetrators seem to be playing a dangerous game. Each clue brings more questions and the team finds themselves working against time as they attempt to stop the suspects before someone else gets hurt or dies.

The Chase is an action filled tale with danger around every corner.  The suspense laced with a developing romance keeps the characters on their toes as they learn they will have to depend on each other and the Lord to survive. Although Lucas makes his feelings for Madison quite clear, Madison is fearful of the pain that caring for another man could bring her.

As is often the case with series, the reader is left with a story that is not entirely resolved so they should be prepared to wait for the next book in the series to learn what happens to Lucas and Madison. I am looking forward to it myself.

Failure isn’t an option

US Marshal Madison James may not be sure who shot her three months ago, but she does know one thing–it’s time to get back out into the field. When her partner, Jonas Quinn, receives a message that a federal warrant just came in on a man connected to a string of bank robberies, Madison jumps at the chance to get back to work. What she and Jonas find is a bank robbery gone wrong–and things are about to get complicated.

For these bank robbers, it’s never been about the money. It’s about taking risks and adrenaline rushes, and getting caught is not part of the game. When the suspects escape, Madison and Jonas must hunt them down and bring them to justice before someone else–someone close to them–gets hurt . . . or worse.

No Unturned Stone by David James Warren

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for No Unturned Stone by David James Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


No Unturned Stone is the second book in a series of six co-written by a collaboration of three authors, two of them very well known for their own books. I agreed to review this book without having read the first one in the series and that was a mistake. For the first several chapters I was lost as the proverbial goose so please start with book one if you read this series. Fortunately as the narrative moved ahead there was enough background information for me to discern most of what was going on.

Those who love time travel, law enforcement, and suspense novels should love No Unturned Stone. Rembrandt Stone is an admirable character who has received a mysterious watch from his former boss and finds himself taken back in time where he has a chance to solve cold cases. Unfortunately everything he does in the past affects the future and he is clueless about what he should and shouldn’t do to prevent the lives of those he cares about from being irrevocably changed.

Despite not having read the first book I was soon caught up in Rembrandt’s story and did not want to put the book down until I reached its end. As can be expected with such talented authors the novel is very well written and engaging with a unique plot, excellent character development, plenty of action and suspense, and multiple surprises. The ending left me eager to know what would happen next so I can assure you that I plan to read the rest of this fun series but only after I go back and read book number one.

Network of Deceit by Tom Threadgill


Although I have never read a novel by Tom Threadgill before Network of Deceit, by its end I am confident that it won’t be my last one. In fact, if my TBR stack were already not so tall, I would be picking up a copy of Collision of Lies immediately. It is definitely on my future reads list.

Although considered Christian fiction, Network of Deceit is not overtly so but it is what most would consider a clean read. This book would probably be a good one to share with non-Christian friends who enjoy a good detective tale.

It is rare to read a novel with a female protagonist that is written by a male author but Mr. Threadgill managed to present Amara’s viewpoint quite well. Her love for her family and her tendency to get too involved in her cases made her come to life on the pages. Strong and mostly likeable characters and a steady plot provided a backbone for the story that held my interest all the way through. Several plot twists and surprises kept me guessing  and one final surprise came out of the blue.

I thoroughly enjoyed following Amara’s steps as she gathered clues for a suspicious death that “might” be a homicide. Her interactions with her fellow detective and possible love interest Starsky often added welcome humor to the story. I learned a few interesting things I didn’t know concerning gaming, hackers, and ransomware.

She’s following her instincts. They’re following her every move.

After her rescue of nearly fifty kidnapped children made international headlines, Amara Alvarez gets what she’s worked for: a transfer to San Antonio’s Homicide Division. But reality sets in quickly when her first case, the suspicious death of a teenager at a crowded local water park, plunges her life into chaos.

As the investigation moves forward, Amara finds herself stalked online by cybercriminals who uncover her personal life in frightening detail. With few leads, she’s forced to resort to unconventional methods to find the killer and prevent her first murder investigation from ending up in the cold case files.

Tom Threadgill is back with another riveting page-turner featuring the detective who is willing to put everything on the line to see justice served and lives protected.

The Escape by Lisa Harris


I have read several books by Lisa Harris and have found them all to be very compelling. Her latest suspense, The Escape is definitely a nail-chewing suspense filled tale that literally hit the ground running. My attention was held captive until the very end.

With an action filled plot that involved a plane crash, a dangerous escaped prisoner, and a cross-country chase after a fugitive who seems to stay two steps ahead, the narrative held multiple plot twists and surprises. Two strong principal characters with tragic pasts, U.S. Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn were a strong team who worked together well. Their backgrounds influenced their work and personal lives to the exclusion of any relationships with the opposite gender yet working together helped begin a healing process.

Although a thread of faith runs throughout the story, it is subtle and enhances their personal stories. In addition to the pursuit of the escaped prisoner, another more personal and sinister mystery also lurks in Madison’s life. Unfortunately I reached the end of The Escape with that mystery unsolved as well as questions about how a relationship between Madison and Jonas will develop. I’m hooked so I will try to be patient and wait for the next installment of this series because I need to know!

How do you catch a fugitive who has nothing to lose?

US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn have orders to transport two high-profile prisoners across the country on a private plane. But when the plane experiences engine trouble en route from the Pacific Northwest to Colorado, the pilots crash-land the aircraft deep in the heart of the sprawling Salmon-Challis National Forest. 

With both pilots and one prisoner dead–and one fugitive on the run–Madison and Jonas must negotiate the rugged and remote backcountry as they track a murderer who is desperate to disappear . . . and will do anything to stop them.

Texas Holiday Hideout by Virginia Vaughan


Texas Holiday Hideout is a good example of why I enjoy Love Inspired Suspense. Due to its short mass market format, the reader jumps into the story feet first and only slows down for an occasional breath or two before the action picks up again. I also love that I can usually get through the entire novel in an evening so I don’t expect a long commitment to it, especially when I’m having a busy week. I am constantly amazed at how the Love Inspired authors are able to condense a story into a limited amount of pages without leaving me feeling deprived. In my opinion that takes true talent.

The story itself is somewhat unique. The heroine finds herself in need of witness protection after her mother’s murder only to discover that she has already been in the program unknowingly most of her life. Now that would do a real number on most people’s trust factor. Her own mother lied to her! Now to stay safe herself, she is forced to lie again and she doesn’t like it one bit. But she would do almost anything to protect her precious young son. U.S. Marshall Miles Avery is doing everything he can to keep Melissa and her son safe and his family has taken them both into their hearts. Can he continue to protect his own heart?

Lots of danger, action, suspense, and romance are in store for readers of Texas Holiday Hideout. Filled with multiple twists, turns, and surprises it is a tale that kept me turning the pages until the very end. Its emphasis on faith and trust was strong but subtle. Another winner from Virginia Vaughan and Love Inspired Suspense.

When her identity’s exposed, hiding on a lawman’s family ranch is her last hope.

After her mother is killed, Melissa Morgan’s shocked to learn she’s spent her life in witness protection. Now it’s US marshal Miles Avery’s job to keep her and her little boy safe. And with a mole in his agency, the only way to evade the killer is to hide Melissa on Miles’s family ranch…and pretend she’s his wife for the holidays.


Virginia Vaughan is a multi-published author of inspirational romantic suspense. Blessed to come from a large, southern family, her fondest memories include listening to stories recounted by family and friends around the large dinner table. She was a lover of books even from a young age, devouring gothic romance novels and stories of romance, danger, and love. She soon started writing them herself. A former investigator for the State of Mississippi, Virginia utilizes her criminal justice background with her love of writing to transform words into powerful stories of romance and danger.


What if one day you discovered you were in the Witness Protection Program and didn’t know it?

This is the premise for my October book, TEXAS HOLIDAY HIDEOUT, which releases this month. My heroine, Melissa Morgan, learns she and her mother entered the program when Melissa was a child. Her mother never told her and, when Melissa witnesses her mother being murdered, she becomes the assassin’s next target. US Marshal Miles Avery steps in to protect the single mom and her son from a killer, but a leak in WITSEC leaves him with little options except to take his witnesses to his family’s ranch…and pretend she’s his wife for the holidays.

So, in celebration of TEXAS HOLIDAY HIDEOUT releasing this month, here are 10 things about the Witness Protection Security Program (or WITSEC) I learned during my research for this book.

  1. The program is voluntary. No one can be forced to enter.
  2. You can leave the program at any time—although it is not recommended.
  3. No person in the program, who follows the rules, has ever been killed.
  4. People entering WITSEC sometimes keep their same first name and/or initials so that if they mess up and start to sign their name, they have time to correct.
  5. Since WITSEC is a federal program, many states have their own programs to protect witnesses of gang or street-level crimes.
  6. If you get married while in WITSEC, you must lie to your new spouse to protect your true identity in the event the relationship doesn’t last.
  7. Protected witnesses are mostly criminals. Only about 5% are innocents despite the popular trope in movies and fiction.
  8. Local law enforcement may or may not be notified when a protected witness is relocated to their jurisdiction.
  9. Divorced, non-custodial parents have had their children hidden from them and now must agree to allow their children to enter the program.
  10. WITSEC protected witnesses are expected to eventually become self-sufficient. They do not get to live off the government for the rest of their lives.

Did any of these facts about WITSEC surprise you? I’d love to hear which ones. I had a lot of fun researching WITSEC for TEXAS HOLIDAY HIDEOUT. I hope you enjoy Miles and Melissa’s story! Look out for the next book in the series—middle brother Navy SEAL Paul Avery’s story—coming in TEXAS TARGET STANDOFF in March of 2021.
