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!).
