Welcome to the Blog Tour for Deadly Connection by Kathy Harris, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Deadly Connection is a fast paced, suspense filled novel that should keep most readers on the edge of their seats. It is the story of a young woman in the wrong place at the wrong time who barely escapes abduction, but witnesses the abduction and murder of another young woman and finds her life in danger from that moment on. FBI agent Jake Matheson arrives on the scene just moments later and quickly becomes involved in the case as well as the life of Hannah Cassidy.

Not only did I enjoy the action, suspense, and romance that were all blended together with just the right amount of faith, but I also loved visiting Nashville through the eyes of the author. It was also interesting to learn a bit of behind-the-scenes of the music business there from the perspective of a song writer. Nashville is only about three hours away but I have not visited there very often. After reading Deadly Connection I would love to visit a few of the places mentioned – as long as I can avoid the dangerous aspects that were experienced by Jake and Hannah.

The book was well written and easy to follow with several twists and surprises that kept me engaged the entire time I read. I did suspect the right person early on but not everything that was behind it. Deadly Connection is yet another Christian book that focuses on human trafficking and hopefully will being more attention to this dangerous practice.

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

Will they uncover the secrets between them before it becomes deadly?

After fending off a would-be abductor, 27-year-old singer-songwriter Hannah Cassidy hides behind a car in the half-empty parking lot behind Pancake Pantry in Nashville. From there, she watches in horror as her attacker grabs another woman and pushes her into a nearby car. Within seconds, the vehicle speeds away.

TBI Special Agent Jake Matheson may have planned a quiet day off and a date with Shannon?the only name her online profile revealed?for an introductory lunch, but after pulling into a parking space on 21st Avenue South, he hears a scream. He races to the back of the building and finds a frightened young woman bent forward and gasping for breath.

Thrown together by uncanny circumstances and driven by the whys and what-ifs of secrets yet to be revealed, Hannah and Jake set out to find the connection between them before it becomes deadly.
