Elizabeth Goddard has become one of my go to suspense authors because of her books like Deadly Target. Not only is her writing beautifully descriptive but her plots pull me in quickly and hold my attention to the very end.

Deadly Target is pretty much a suspense masterpiece.  With one seemingly unconnected deadly event after another and long buried secrets that are eventually revealed, I found it difficult to guess who was responsible and how the victims were chosen.

Another second chance romance trope features Erin and Nathan whose previous relationship ended badly. As they work together to stop the threats against the lives of family members and even themselves, can their past love be reignited? Action, danger, and suspense abound as Nathan and Erin must depend on each other and the Lord to stay alive long enough to put the responsible person behind bars. Several suspects surface during the many twists and turns in the plot along with a surprise or two.

I thoroughly enjoyed Deadly Target and look forward to the final book of the series.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


This cold case has suddenly warmed up.
She only hopes they won’t get burned.

Criminal psychologist Erin Larson’s dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her life in a boating accident and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job to care for her mother in Montana. At least there Erin is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.

Nathan Campbell’s father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin’s help to solve the case. She’s certainly good at what she does. The only problem? She’s his ex.

As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted–and the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.
