Title: Never Miss
Author: Melissa Koslin
“Neither of us can do this alone. I don’t have your knowledge of science, and you don’t know how a terrorist mind works,” Kadance informs Lyndon in Melissa Koslin’s novel, Never Miss.
~ What ~
This three-hundred-and-fifty-two-page paperback is for those who enjoy current-day romantic suspense about trying to stop a dangerous virus from being potentially spread in America. With slang words such as heck and darn, topics of abuse, torture, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The ending includes a chapter of the writer’s next book, acknowledgments, biography, and advertisements.
Set in the United States, former CIA sniper Kadance becomes involved with Lyndon, a smart scientist with a photographic memory, when she saves his life. As they look for the reason for the attempted assassination, not only are they both targeted, but they try to stop the mastermind who wants to emit an Ebola virus at the upcoming State of the Union address. As the two get closer to their goal, they struggle with their paths of loneliness and heartbreak while searching for redemption.
This is a rapid story that zig-zags across America in a race to find who wants to lower worldwide population via releasing a deadly virus. The sharpshooter and geek’s connection is well-tested and tried as they work through their inadequacies and insecurities. I appreciated the scientific input and logical intelligent design discussions regarding a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like Christian suspense will pass on this story about a trained sniper dealing with her skillset and a shy brainy guy who thinks too much. Others may think some of the scenarios were far-fetched, the traveling times incorrect, and the access to secured areas a bit unbelievable. Kadance’s pet cat was a unique addition to the tale but perhaps a bit unrealistic.
~ Wish ~
Although the story has threads of Christianity and praying, it would be thoughtful to include the eternal plan of salvation. I prefer all pronouns of God capitalized for reverence.
~ Want ~
If you like a romantic read involving two hurt and damaged individuals who want to do all in their power to save others, this is a fast read but you may find it a little over the top in some areas.
Thanks to Revell for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
