Title: Deadly Intentions
Author: Lisa Harris
“But I believe that all three were working on the same project in the same lab. I believe their deaths are connected,” Caitlyn explains to Josh in Lisa Harris’s novel, Deadly Intentions.
~ What ~
This three-hundred-and-twenty-page paperback targets those who enjoy crime suspense with Christian undertones and light romance. Containing no profanity, the topics of alcohol, physical abuse, and murder may not be appropriate for immature readers. The book ends with the first chapter of the writer’s next novel, acknowledgments, author’s biography, and advertisements for other Revell books.
Set in Houston, Texas, Caitlyn Lindsey has been a research scientist for two years at her job and wonders if there is a connection between three people who have recently died. With the help of Josh Solomon, the husband of one of the deceased employees and a police officer, they try to uncover what was the link that caused all of them to die. As they learn about a potentially dangerous threat to the city, they begin to develop feelings for each other.
~ Why ~
This is a fast read that packs plenty of action and twists and turns as Caitlyn and Josh try to stay one step ahead of a cat-and-mouse game, trying to figure out who is after them and why people are being murdered. I liked learning the scientific background of the research lab and how a police department tries to follow protocol to protect their citizens.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may not like the inserted prayers to God or calling on His name for protection. Others may not like a story of a woman who is being tracked down and a cop being set up.
~ Wish ~
While I liked the tale’s fast pace and protectiveness of the protagonists, I felt some of the scenarios were minorly far-fetched in how the two were continually being monitored.
~ Want ~
If you are into cop stories with suspense and a touch of romance, this may be a good weekend read that occupies your mind.
