Standoff by Patricia Bradley ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

A heart-pounding suspense, with high stakes and plenty of heart.

The death of Brooke Danver's father leaves her determined to find out who betrayed him. An old flame from her past reappears, but can she trust him?

A fast-paced, engaging adventure, filled with suspense and questions that kept me guessing. I loved the complexity of the plot, and how there were logical reasons for the secrets that were kept. Luke's grandmother is a wonderfully sweet and faithful woman, and I love her relationship with her grandson.

Brooke is just starting out her career in law enforcement, working with the National Parks system in the Natchez Trace. I admired her strong faith throughout the trials that she faces with all the unknowns and not knowing where to turn and who to trust.

Luke is a man of many secrets and responsibilities, he feel compelled to help Brooke, but he doesn't want to get too close. He has a strong sense of duty that weighs on him, and I liked how he tries to be there for Brooke when she needs him.

Overall, a thrilling plot driven read, with great tension and character interaction. I loved the high stakes and beautiful setting, there are many surprise twists and turns along the way. A well written start to what is sure to be a fantastic new series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
