Book Review: Breach of Honor

28 Jun

My book club read Breach of Honor, a suspense novel by Janice Cantore. An ex-police officer herself, Cantore provides a unique perspective to her law enforcement characters. The result is a very believable scenario. I anticipate a good discussion tonight.

As a police officer in Table Rock, Oregon, Leah Radcliff puts her life on the line to help others every day. But at home, Leah’s battling her own personal nightmare: Brad, her abusive husband, a fellow officer, celebrated hero, and beloved son of a powerful prominent family. Brad’s violent outbursts and suspicious activities have left Leah physically and emotionally scarred, until one desperate action to put a stop to his abuse results in deadly consequences.

Though public opinion seems ready to convict Leah, Officer Clint Tanner is one of the few to believe she acted in self-defense. As he works with Leah’s attorney to produce the evidence they need, new truths about Brad’s dark side come to light—and reveal a deep-rooted problem in Table Rock. There are some who have breached their sworn duty to serve and protect . . . and they’ll do anything to keep their secret safe.

A former Long Beach, California, police officer of twenty-two years, Janice Cantore worked a variety of assignments, including patrol, administration, juvenile investigations, and training. She’s always enjoyed writing and published two short articles on faith at work for Cop and Christ and Today’s Christian Woman before tackling novels. She now lives in a small town in southern Oregon, where she enjoys exploring the forests, rivers, and lakes with her Labrador retrievers, Abbie and Tilly.

Janice writes suspense novels designed to keep readers engrossed and leave them inspired.

My Impressions:

Breach of Honor was a good reading choice for a number of reasons. It is a credible look at how a woman who kills in self-defense is then convicted and sent to prison. There are a lot of things going on in the novel besides that — criminal activity, corruption at various levels of government — but Leah’s journey from good cop to inmate was what intrigued me the most. Cantore does a great job of exploring domestic abuse. It’s easy to say the victim should walk away from her abuser, but this novel shows how just how complex the issue is. Leah’s spiritual journey is interesting as well. The novel’s timeline is years, not days or months — that really made me think. Leah spent years in prison waiting for her day in court. While most don’t hit bottom in prison, her rejection and then acceptance of God rang true. For those who like twists and turns in their suspense, there are plenty. No one in this book is above suspicion! A romantic thread plays a small part of the novel.

I anticipate a lot of discussion at my book club. There really is a lot to talk about in this recommended read.

Recommended.

Audience: adults.

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Her Darkest Secret by Jessica R. Patch, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Her Darkest Secret Title: Her Darkest Secret
Author: Jessica R. Patch
Publisher: Harlequin Love Inspired TRADE
Release Date: June 28, 2022
Genre: Christian, Psychological Thriller with a romance thread

When a cold-case serial killer returns, FBI special agent Fiona Kelly has one last chance to stop him before he claims the prize he’s always wanted—her.

The sight of a goose feather at a murder scene modeled after a children’s poem is enough to make FBI special agent Fiona Kelly’s blood turn to ice. Almost two decades ago, a feather was left with her sister’s body—and with every subsequent victim of the Nursery Rhyme Killer. Now he’s back. Only this time, his latest gruesome murder is a message to the only one who ever got away: Fiona.

Finding “Rhyme” is an obsession that’s fueled Fiona’s career—and destroyed her marriage to fellow FBI agent Asa Kodiak. Now Fiona and Asa have to put their past tensions aside and work together one last time. But Rhyme is watching, and catching this killer may force Fiona to reveal her biggest, darkest secret…the one only he knows.

EXCERPT

Ty reentered. “It’s done. Death investigator is on her way. Apparently she’s been busy this morning. You want me to come with to interview the husband? You know it’s always the husband.”

“How could it be this time? The feather in her hand.”

Ty shrugged. “I just think you spend that much time with someone…you wanna kill ’em.”

Asa snorted.

“Asa, you don’t have to enlist Fiona’s help, but you owe her a courtesy call.”

Ty was right. But it would ignite a different set of fireworks. The kind that didn’t light up the night sky, but set emotional fires and burned everything to ash. “It’ll put her on a plane out here. Give me some time. It won’t hurt anything.” Asa could move past the Fourth of July, then call and inform her that he was handling things and would keep her updated.

Unfortunately, that wouldn’t be enough for Fiona.

Asa was going to have to pin Scripture verses all over his town house, car and office to keep his temper in check and his heart guarded.

First Line Friday — The Deadly Shallows

24 Jun

Happy Friday! I just finished an early copy of The Deadly Shallows by Dani Pettrey and I just had to share! This breath-holding romantic suspense will be a great addition to your beach bag. It releases on July 5 — you can pre-order now.

Here’s the first line:

Crisp night air slapped his cheeks, but he’d long since learned to endure the elements.

A deadly attack.
A stolen weapon capable of immense destruction.
A painful secret that threatens to tear two hearts apart.

CGIS Agent Noah Rowley is rocked to the core when several of his valued team members come under fire on his Coast Guard base. He and his remaining team race to the scene and end the attack, but not before innocent lives are lost. Furious and grief-stricken, he vows to do whatever is needed to bring the mastermind behind the attack to justice.

Stunned by the ambush, Coast Guard flight medic Brooke Kesler evacuates in a helicopter carrying the only surviving gunman. The gravely wounded man whispers mysterious information to Brooke that immediately paints a target on her back.

As Brooke and Noah race to uncover answers, emotions between them ignite. Noah struggles to protect Brooke at all costs and to conceal the secret that prevents him from becoming what he longs to be–the right man for her.

Everything is at stake as a horrifying truth emerges. . . .

The attack wasn’t the end game. It was only the beginning.

With their very survival at stake, can the four teens work together, or will Lexi’s dream of a “forever family” end in tragedy?

EXCERPT

Ahead of us, the terrain broke away into a deep gorge. If Levi hadn’t stopped, we’d likely have raced right over the edge. And unlike the crevice I’d been so terrified of earlier, this one was far too wide to jump—at least twenty feet across—while the tangle of green vegetation I could see at the bottom was a sheer drop a good fifty feet straight down.

I could feel the usual panic and dizziness sweeping over me as I stared into the awful depth. I could also hear the shouts of the kidnappers, closer than they’d been. We were trapped!

Then Levi grabbed my hand. “Come on!”

He was tugging me to the right along the gorge rim. From the corner of my eye, I saw Jen and Chad keeping pace beside us before I realized where Levi was pulling me and yanked to a stop again. A few more yards ahead, a dirt-like bridge, no more than a yard wide and covered in mossy vegetation, spanned the gorge. Stalactites overgrown with vines hung from the bottom.

“Are you kidding me?” I exclaimed. “The thing’s made of dirt! We can’t cross!”

Chad was now passing us, Jen on his heels. “Yes, we can!” he shot at me over his shoulder. “If it is dirt, it would have collapsed under its own weight. And we don’t have a choice—unless you see any other way to cross!”

As Chad headed out onto the bridge, Levi grabbed my hand again. “Come on! We’ll go together!”

Chad was already halfway across with Jen right behind him. I glanced back. The kidnappers were now in sight, running full-out toward us, no more than a hundred yards away. I could either cross the bridge now or be recaptured. Worse, I would be getting Levi recaptured too.

As though taking for granted I would follow, Levi stepped out onto the bridge. I kept my eyes on his back as I stepped out after him. Chad and Jen had now reached the other side.

If Jen can, so can I! I told myself fiercely. Levi took another step, and I did too. Then another. Behind us, renewed shouts told me the kidnappers had seen what we were doing and were gaining on our lead.

“Hurry!” I told Levi. He quickened his pace, and so did I.

We were almost to the far side when I felt a slight tremor shake the bridge. I screamed and fell to my knees. My gaze dropped to the terrifying drop below us.

“Go!” Jen screamed from the bank. “Get out of there now!”

Levi turned back. “Grab my hand!”

Even as he yanked me to my feet, I could feel the bridge disintegrating beneath my feet.

“Run! Run!” Jen shouted. “The bridge is going!”

As though we weren’t aware! Levi practically dragged me the last few feet. No sooner had we cleared the bridge than the dirt, moss, stone, and whatever else spilled into the gorge below. As I realized how close we’d come to joining the rubble at the bottom of the gorge, a shudder passed through me, and I began to tremble.

Angry shouts brought me out of my fear. The kidnappers had reached the other side and were screaming with fury at the sight of the collapsed bridge. And with a sheer rock face below them, they now had no way to cross. At least some good had come from our close call.

As though with one mind, we all hurried away from the gorge until we could no longer see the kidnappers. A well-trodden path led through the brush and trees, probably trampled down by animals or even people crossing the bridge.

We heard no sound from our pursuers. They must be searching for a way across the gorge. The relief allowed us to slow down. Once I’d recovered my breath from the desperate race, I looked over at Chad. “That bridge could just as easily have fallen with you and Jen. We could have all died back there. And you wonder why I don’t like heights!”

Protecting him just might cost her everything…

Elite Guardian Charlie Lee knows that there is no future with the woman he loves—fellow Guardian Lizzie Tremaine. And, he gets it—as a single mom, Lizzie has to protect her daughter. But more than anything, he wants the chance to prove himself.

Then, the unthinkable happens—while working undercover, Charlie is seriously injured…and his memory of the past four years is lost. Could it be the fresh start that he didn’t realize he longed for?

Despite a friendship that’s turned flirtatious at times, Lizzie Tremaine has held Charlie at arms’ length. She’s lost all the men she’s ever loved, and is unwilling to risk her heart again. Still, she’s glad to keep an eye on him—as his bodyguard—and while she’s at it, help him put the pieces of his past together, including discovering who attacked him, and why.

But Charlie seems to have forgotten their agreed-upon professional distance—and suddenly, all the rules are off the table. She’s seeing a side of Charlie she could possibly let into her heart. Problem is, the closer he gets to uncovering his memories, the closer he gets to trouble.

EXCERPT

A black haze filled the room at an alarming rate. “Charlie!” Lizzie coughed and covered her nose and mouth with the neck of her shirt. She couldn’t see beyond a couple of feet in front of her. “Charlie!”

She lifted her arm to shield her face. The heat rolled off the flames like waves tumbling toward her. She grabbed a kitchen towel, poured the remaining water from her bottle on it, and covered her nose and mouth. She had to find Charlie and get them out before they both died of smoke inhalation or worse—burned to death.

Audiobook Mini-Review — Shiloh

21 Jun

Shiloh, the second book in Lori Benton’s Kindred series, has long been on my TBR list. A long hold from Libby was finally available, and I have to say the wait was certainly worth it. Picking up where Mountain Laurel leaves off, Shiloh completes the story of Seona and Ian. The historical detail of this book is great. I especially liked the references to the origins of Cooperstown, NY. The book explores the experiences of people of color in the newly formed US. Former slaves, Native Americans, and those of mixed races are all important characters in the story. Identity and purpose are strong themes, especially as those things relate to God’s perspective. I found traces of the prodigal son, Joseph, and Jacob’s stories woven throughout the narrative. There’s romance, adventure, and suspense as well. And those of you who loved Burning Sky, Benton’s debut novel, are in for a treat!

Shiloh is another recommended read from Benton. However, this book is not a standalone — you must read Mountain Laurel first.

Recommended.

Audience: Adults.

(I borrowed the audiobook from my library. All opinions expressed are mine alone.)

December 1795
A year has passed since Ian Cameron reluctantly sent his uncle’s former slave Seona and their son, Gabriel, north to his kin in Boston. Determined to fully release them, Ian strives to make a life at Mountain Laurel, his inherited plantation, along with Judith, the wife he’s vowed to love and cherish. But when tragedy leaves him alone with his daughter, Mandy, and his three remaining slaves, he decides to return north. An act of kindness on the journey provides Ian the chance to obtain land near the frontier settlement of Shiloh, New York. Perhaps even the hope for a new life with those he still holds dear.

In Boston, Seona has taken her first tentative steps as a free woman, while trying to banish Ian from her heart. The Cameron family thinks she and Gabriel should remain under their protection. Seona’s mother, Lily, thinks it’s time they strike out on their own. Then Ian arrives, offering a second chance Seona hadn’t dared imagine. But the wide-open frontier of Shiloh feels as boundless and terrifying as her newfound freedom—a place of new friends and new enemies, where deep bonds are renewed but old hurts stand ready to rear their heads. It will take every ounce of faith and courage Ian and Seona can muster to fight for their family and their future . . . together.

Lori Benton was born and raised east of the Appalachian Mountains, surrounded by early American and family history going back to the 1600s. Her novels transport readers to the 18th century, where she brings to life the Colonial and early Federal periods of American history, creating a melting pot of characters drawn from both sides of a turbulent and shifting frontier, brought together in the bonds of God’s transforming grace. 

Lori’s debut novel, Burning Sky, earned the 2014 Christy Award for First Novel, Historical, and Book of the Year.

Top 10 Tuesday — Book Wishes

21 Jun

This week’s TTT topic had me a bit stymied. I couldn’t quite get my thoughts together so I put off this post until the last minute. I headed to Finding Wonderland and found Rissi had captured my thoughts perfectly. I was tempted to just type DITTO and be done 😉 , but decided to list some completely random wishes instead. Many of them go hand in hand. Be sure to head over to Rissi’s blog for a more coherent and insightful post. Other bloggers are also sharing at That Artsy Reader Girl. Be sure to wish Jana a happy birthday while there!

Top Random Book Wishes

I wish reading burned more calories. Here’s an article from Livestrong that discusses just that.

I wish I my library through Libby had more audiobooks from CF in general and more of my favorite authors in particular in their catalog.

I wish I could listen to audiobooks in the car without falling asleep. As a passenger, not the driver, I have this problem. 😉

I wish I could stay awake longer while reading in bed. (I’m sensing a trend.)

I wish I could be less distracted by social media and read more.

I wish I had more self control in bookstores.

I wish I would read more from my shelves.

I wish I could read books in the pool.

I wish my friends’ eyes wouldn’t glass over when I’m talking about books.

I wish there were official book reading holidays.

I am currently reading an advanced copy of Deadly Shallows by Dani Pettrey. It’s really good. Wish I was reading it now!

A deadly attack.
A stolen weapon capable of immense destruction.
A painful secret that threatens to tear two hearts apart.

CGIS Agent Noah Rowley is rocked to the core when several of his valued team members come under fire on his Coast Guard base. He and his remaining team race to the scene and end the attack, but not before innocent lives are lost.

First Line Friday — Miss Austen

17 Jun

I have so much fun exploring independent bookstores! Last week I was in N Georgia and visited Book Bound Bookstore in Blairsville. What a jewel! Of course I had to buy a book, or two, or three . . . . One of those is today’s First Line Friday feature, Miss Austen by Gill Hornby. Along with not being able to pass by a bookstore or new books, I also cannot turn away an Austen knock-off. I can’t wait to read it.

Here’s the first line:

“Let us take that path.”

For fans of Jo Baker’s Longbourn, a witty, wonderfully original novel about Cassandra Austen and her famous sister, Jane.

Whoever looked at an elderly lady and saw the young heroine she once was?

England, 1840. Two decades after the death of her beloved sister, Jane, Cassandra Austen returns to the village of Kintbury and the home of her family friends, the Fowles. In a dusty corner of the vicarage, there is a cache of Jane’s letters that Cassandra is desperate to find. Dodging her hostess and a meddlesome housemaid, Cassandra eventually hunts down the letters and confronts the secrets they hold, secrets not only about Jane but about Cassandra herself. Will Cassandra bare the most private details of her life to the world, or commit her sister’s legacy to the flames? 

Moving back and forth between the vicarage and Cassandra’s vibrant memories of her years with Jane, interwoven with Jane’s brilliantly reimagined lost letters, Miss Austen is the untold story of the most important person in Jane’s life. With extraordinary empathy, emotional complexity, and wit, Gill Hornby finally gives Cassandra her due, bringing to life a woman as captivating as any Austen heroine.

“Look out!” He reached over and jerked the wheel to the right. She whipped her head around in time to see a crop-dusting plane headed in their direction, nearly on top of them.

 “Why is he flying over the road!” Nicole spun the wheel, sending the cruiser off the road and skidding into the grass while the plane passed them. She knew the pilots sometimes flew as low as eight feet above the crops. She’d never seen one up this close before. She hit the gas and her tires spun in the grass and mud before finding traction again on the paved road. 

Her questions were answered when the plane did a staggering loop in the air and roared back toward them. She floored it, trying to outrun this new threat. Bullets rained down on the road from the craft. 

They’d become the killer’s new target.
