ABOUT THE BOOK
Heather Jensen is just trying to survive after her husband’s death. Widowed with two young children, Heather struggles to make ends meet. But when she receives a storage unit key for a locker in Hawaii, things go from desperate to dangerous. With nowhere to turn, she enlists the help of her brother’s former best friend, Mark Hawkins. FBI Special Agent Mark Hawkins is on the trail of counterfeiters, and he’s traced the laundered money to Heather. In his gut, he knows that his former best friend, Heather’s brother, is responsible, but everything points to Heather and her deceased husband. When events turn deadly, it’s a race against time. But a greater danger awaits them in the exotic paradise of Hawaii. No stranger to dangerous situations, Mark has faced death before. But this time, the danger is personal. Can he protect Heather and her children without losing his heart in the process?
I really enjoyed this book! It is a well-written story with likable characters, family drama, and an inspiring faith message woven into its plot. I was kept totally engaged by the constant danger and unanswered questions, and I couldn't wait to learn more about Heather and Mark. Would their tantalizing attraction for each other turn into something more?
Lethal Pursuit is the first book that I've read by Jennifer Chastain but it certainly won't be my last! I recommend it to all who enjoy romantic Christian suspense.
