Audiobook Mini-Review — The Chase

13 Mar

I am so behind on my reading, especially when it comes to series I have begun. I read The Escape by Lisa Harris several years ago with my book club. I had all intentions of finishing off the next 2 books in that series as they were released. That was a big fat fail. LOL! So I decided to download the audiobook of The Chase a few weeks ago as I had resumed my walking routine. The romantic suspense featuring two US Marshalls was an easy listen that could be picked up for an hour or so every day. While the novel does continue a thread begun in the first book, The Chase mainly focused on a bank robbery and subsequent fugitive hunt. It was generally entertaining with lots of action. However, I found some of the things the Marshalls did hard to believe. They get themselves in several sticky situations that would have been prevented with proper backup. I am not in law enforcement, but having read and watched numerous police novels and TV programs, I am kind of an expert. 😉 Seriously, I think going into a situation without adequate communication or without someone knowing what you were doing seemed farfetched. Will this keep me from reading the next book in the series? Nope, I am committed to the conclusion of the continuing thread begun in book 1 and explored in this book. I just have to know what’s going on and whodunit! I also am eager to get the two main characters into a romantic relationship!

The Chase was an okay read for me, but I like this author and the characters too much to give up now!

Audience: Adults.

(I purchased the audiobook from Audible. All opinions expressed are mine alone.)

US Marshal Madison James may not be sure who shot her three months ago, but she does know one thing–it’s time to get back out into the field. When her partner, Jonas Quinn, receives a message that a federal warrant just came in on a man connected to a string of bank robberies, Madison jumps at the chance to get back to work. What she and Jonas find is a bank robbery in progress that’s gone wrong–and things are about to get worse.

For these bank robbers, it’s never been just about the money. It’s about taking risks and adrenaline rushes, and getting caught is not part of the game. When the suspects escape, Madison and Jonas must hunt them down and bring them to justice before someone else–someone close to them–gets hurt . . . or worse.

From Seattle to the San Juan Islands, bestselling author Lisa Harris takes you on a nonstop chase where feelings are complicated and failure isn’t an option.

USA Today and CBA bestselling author LISA HARRIS is a Christy Award finalist for Blood Ransom, Port of Origin, and Vendetta, Christy Award winner for Dangerous Passage, and the winner of the Best Inspirational Suspense Novel for 2011 (Blood Covenant) and 2015 (Vendetta) from Romantic Times. She has sold over half a million books.

    I can’t listen to suspense on audio, it is SO much harder for me to follow. I read this one and enjoyed it.
