A Secret to Die ForA Secret to Die For by Lisa Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is only the second book that I've read by Lisa Harris but she is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. The heart-pounding action in "A Secret To Die For" begins immediately and it doesn't let up. The murder of a computer security specialist and his suspected connection to a possible cyberterrorist attack on the United States powergrid creates a story filled with adventure,intrigue and danger. Psychologist Grace Callahan and police detective Nate Quinn are old college friends who find themselves caught up in the race to prevent computer hackers from destroying life as we know it and they soon realize that their college friendship could possibly turn into something deeper if they can only overcome the extreme hurts that they have endured in the past. Three years ago Grace lost her young daughter to cancer and her marriage ended in divorce and Nate is still suffering from PTSD due to witnessing a bombing that recently took the lives of his police partner and many other innocent victims. Grace has found strength in her faith in God but we see Nate floundering in his. As his feelings for Grace deepen we watch his spiritual struggle during his efforts to protect her. In one moving excerpt, as he rushs to find Grace alive, Nate begins to pray.

'God, I can't go through this again. Please.' He'd shoved God into a box. Used him when he needed him or wanted something. And now that he needed him, he was ready to bargain, or beg, or whatever it took to get what he wanted. Except that wasn't how things worked. Not in this life. He knew that. Prayers went unanswered. People died."

This book is filled with intense action and suspense from the very first page and I found myself wondering if the author could sustain her momentum throughout the entire story. The answer is a definite yes; the mystery and suspense remain to the end! There are also two very believable characters who are struggling to overcome deep personal suffering as they turn to each other and attempt to completely rely on their faith in God. I truly enjoyed "A Secret to Die For" and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian romantic suspense fiction.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and publisher but my review is voluntary and these are my honest opinions.
