I have really enjoyed the Cold Case series by Janice Cantore and now she brings us Crisis Shot about Tess O’Rourke, whose career is on the line after shooting a teenager in the city where she is a commander. Even though the Grand Jury found there was no wrongdoing, the press coverage makes it impossible for her to continue on the force so she accepts the position of Police Chief in a small rural town in Oregon. What she thought would be a very laid back job turns out to be full of policy activity including a murder and a kidnapping.
I love this author’s books and this one is just as wonderful as the rest. I can’t wait to get the next one! I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for a fair and honest review.
This book is the second in the Harbinger series. The book is divided into four sections, one by each author. Each author makes a different character the focus of their piece of the story, but all the characters appear in all the sections.
The characters are all drawn into supernatural / paranormal activity and see first hand the work of Satan and his minions on earth. The first book in the series was an introduction of the characters and the genre. I found it very interesting. This second book got even deeper into the paranormal and I found it odd and hard to follow at times. I still have the greatest respect for these authors and read their works avidly, I may just have to reread this one later and maybe digest a little more of it. It is just out of my ordinary range.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a fair and honest review.
This book came to me at a very propitious time. My 12-year-old granddaughter is just at the age where she is experiencing a lot of angst about her place in life and in her family. She is a younger sister, a middle sister, and the sister of adopted younger siblings. Often, this causes a lot of conflict and and lot of soul searching for her. This book explores the mystery that is family and helps young girls see how God wants them to fit into theirs.
She has enjoyed exploring this subject and seems a lot more comfortable in her own skin after discussing some of the issues that are covered in this book. I highly recommend it to others. We are using it in our homeschool as a part of our Bible curriculum.
I received this book from Tyndale (NavPress) in exchange for a fair and honest review. I am so grateful for the opportunity.
