As a native Tennessean I loved the Nashville setting of Deadly Commitment. Although not extremely familiar with the Nashville area, I have visited there several times and recognized many of the places mentioned in the story. Aside from the familiarity of the setting, I also found a riveting plot that held my interest until the very end. Well developed characters carried the story very well and the leads were very easy to like.

I loved how the author used two of the characters to illustrate how easily appearances and even actions can be deceiving with those who may seem trustworthy are actually a danger to us. I did not like Danielle’s fiance Robert who seemed to be a fake and a poser from the very beginning. I wanted to warn her against accepting his proposal. On the other hand I found Caleb to be genuine and protective. You can probably guess who I really wanted Danielle to like.

Deadly Commitment is a fast paced suspense with plenty of action, danger, and unexpected twists and surprises. I appreciated the author’s honesty in writing about the reality of drug use and how it affects not only the user but everyone in their lives. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and look forward to the next book in this series.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by JustRead Publicity Tours. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.

Deadly Secrets is a new fiction series with southern charm and big-city twists. Set in the author’s hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, it is filled not only with intrigue and suspense but subtle glimpses into how God is at work in the lives of ordinary people doing ordinary jobs . . . or maybe they aren’t so ordinary after all
