"It was a pathogen. A virus that kills plants. It had multiplied with nothing to feed on.... Airborne, it could travel the world and kill every living plant in its path."

Not long ago a book about bio-terrorism might have seemed unrealistic but this new book by Tanya Stowe seems very plausible in today's society. Biologist Sassa Nilsson and a Border Patrol Agent find themselves in a deadly race to stop a crop virus that would destroy the world's food chain and they are involved in intrigue and extreme danger all of the way. Sassa is a brilliant scientist and a divorced mother who has learned to stand on her own but she may have to accept protection for her and her little girl. Can Jared De Luca keep them safe as he and Sassa try to discover the terrorist's identity? is it possible for two deeply scarred people to find happiness again? Will Sassa's deep faith prove a beacon for Jared's faltering belief?

Author Tanya Stowe kept me guessing as I joined Sassa and Jared in their non-stop efforts to identity the bad guys....and I do mean bad! If you enjoy romantic suspense and faith-based fiction, you will certainly enjoy Killer Harvest!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via Celebrate Lit. A positive review was not required and I am voluntarily sharing my honest thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

More from Tanya

As a teenager, I spent my summers water-skiing on the King’s River in Central California. Even though we lived on the coast and the ocean, we traveled inland to the smooth river waters every other weekend for our sport. We camped on a sandy beach, skimmed over the water all day long and at night sat under a sky full of brilliant stars and listened to the sound of the water rippling past. Since we lived on the coast with a heavy marine layer, the amazing sky always fascinated me. Surrounded by massive cottonwood trees, with the smell of ripe fruit drifting toward us, my river experiences were different from home and more than memorable. On some nights we’d hear the splash and laughter as teenagers, somewhere across the river, came down to swim. I always wondered what it would be like to live in the nearby small, neat-as-a-pin town, to know the same people all of my life and to be able to drive down to the river with my friends on any given night. I envied those teenagers and always knew I’d someday write a story about central California. I didn’t know it would involve biological warfare and crazed killers…but that transition is another story all its own! I’ll stop here and hope you enjoy Killer Harvest!

    Unilateral marriages in the Old Testament, (bride price) transfers authority from the father of the bride to the groom, preventing the wife from being able to divorce her husband and allowing the man to marry in polygamy. Bilateral marriages under Greco-Roman law, (like we have today) creates an egalitarian society where either spouse can initiate the divorce, and polygamy is not allowed. These two ideals were at war in the first century church. The Law of Moses allowed man to put away his wife for uncleanness. The Law of Ezra commanded the circumcised men of Israel to put away their pagan wives and children born unto them. Was the woman given the equal right to put away her husband in the New Testament? And why does Paul seem to talk about men and women differently regarding divorce and remarriage in his letter to Corinth? This short-book explores marriage, divorce, and remarriage in ways you have never heard before.
