RACE AGAINST TIME
The last thing Krista Curry expected to find in a soccer stadium was a time bomb. When she alerts explosives expert Cash Dixon, she becomes a local hero. But the attention could expose her real name—and the infamous past she fought to escape. Cash promises Krista protection from the bomber's retaliation. Yet she hesitates to trust him as she sees his suspicion about her grow with every question she dodges. She can't expect Cash to continue to safeguard her unless she tells him the truth. Now Cash must decide if she's an innocent woman or guilty accomplice. But the clock is ticking down—and the real bomber is still on the loose…
First Responders: Brave men and women alert and ready for danger and love.
Another action packed story from the Love Inspired Suspense line of books. I'm liking this line more and more each month, these stories are full of crime solving heroes and heroines, faith and love.
This story brings the action on from the first page, nothing to bring up the tense mood like a countdown with a bomb. And the intense feeling stays throughout the story, with so twists in the plot, surprises coming up, the tale moves at a fast pace.
There is not only the fear from the bomber, Krista is hiding some major secrets from her past, and the danger of the media outing her past is constantly present in Krista's mind, bring the old nightmares into the present.
While hunting for the truth, the bomber, and keeping Krista and Otto safe, Cash is also faced with his past, the sorrow, pain and failures of it. In the midst of all the chaos, the search for peace, balance, and trust in God is so real, and well set into the story.
This gripping tale is full of life and energy, crime scene after crime scene creating more confusion and tension. The relationship forming between Krista and Cash is delicate and sweet temptation for Cash, who is trying to stay professional, despite his feelings for Krista. This series of the First Responders is one that I will keep an eye on in the future
