"Lethal Target" a book review

Jenny/ October 1, 2018/ Homeschool Reviews


So, I have to say one of my favorite things about blogging is the ability to try new things and one of those is being a reviewer for Tyndale House Publishing.  And when I get the chance to review a good suspenseful Christian mystery, can we say this is right up my alley!  I was given the book “Lethal Target” by Janice Cantore to review this month and honestly, I picked it up and couldn’t put it down!


I actually read this 392 page book in one evening and a bit of the next morning.  It was that good 🙂  Yes, my children still got fed 😉  This book follows the Police Chief Tess O’Rourke through a small-town mystery that begins with an unusual teenaged boy’s death to the exciting conclusion (which I won’t tell you).  In it we get to glimpse how trauma can negatively impact a young person’s faith and how a steadfast Christian can have such an impact on someone who is hurting and searching deep down inside.


This book really has it all.  A bit of romance, deadly situations and doesn’t leave you wondering why exactly they ended it that way (that annoys me to pieces in a book).  Its actually the second book in Janice Cantore’s Line of Duty series.  Which of course makes me HAVE to get the first one.  She also has a Cold Case Justice series and the Pacific Coast Justice series.


I absolutely loved this book!  And surprisingly I hadn’t read any of her stuff before (a problem I will definitely remedy).  I think one of the reasons its such a well-written book is she knows exactly what she’s talking about (she’s a retired Long-Beach police officer).  Anyway, if you love mysteries and Christian fiction I highly recommend you pick this up and read it.  Of course, make sure your kids still get fed (because you probably won’t be able to put it down either!).


disclaimer:  I received this book for review for free from Tyndale House Publishing.  I was not compensated or required to write a positive review.
