Thursday Thoughts on Reading and Writing

When you leave a comment on THIS post by 6 p.m. CT Sunday, April 15, 2012 you'll be entered in the drawing for a copy of the book I review below. You must be eighteen, a U.S. resident, void where prohibited.

The Last Target by Christy Barritt

Christy Barritt is an award-winning author, freelance writer, and speaker. The second book in the Squeaky Clean series, Suspicious Minds, won the 2009 Daphne de Maurier award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense. Christy lives in Virginia with her husband and two sons. For more information about Christy's other books and projects, visit her on her Facebook page here.
  
From the book’s back cover

The paper found in a terrorist’s pocket holds six names—and single mom Rachel Reynolds is the only one on the list who’s still alive. Private security contractor Jack Sergeant wants to ensure she stays that way, but first he must convince Rachel the danger is real.

Rachel can’t believe that someone’s after her…until she’s grazed by a shooter’s bullet. She won’t take chances with her son’s life—but she doesn’t want Jack getting too close. Yet as Jack comes to care for both mother and son, the target he’s after is a family to love and protect for a lifetime.


From Jo

Rachel Reynolds, who owns a non-profit, turns up on a terrorist’s hit list. A young widow with a small child goes on the run, protected by a former FBI, Jack. Again Barritt writes excellent suspense and well rounded characters. One thing after another prevents Rachel from overcoming her fear. There’s a surprise in practically every chapter. Keeps you guessing till the end.

  1. Jo,

    Thanks for the review! The Last Target sounds like a great book.

    It's been ages since I read anything from Love Inspired and I have never read a Love Inspired Suspense. I am intrigued.

    By the way, the "Squeaky Clean" series piques my curiosity, as well.
