Review: Blind Betrayal by Nancy Mehl

About this Book

Deputy U.S. Marshal Casey Sloane has worked at the St. Louis Marshals office for two years and is given a routine assignment to help transport a reporter to D.C. to testify before a grand jury. Valerie, the reporter, was writing a story about an up-and-coming environmentalist who suddenly disappeared and, she later discovered, whose backers purportedly have ties to a terrorist.

When the seemingly ordinary assignment suddenly takes a shocking turn, Casey is forced to put aside her own feelings about the unexpected reappearance of a man from her past as she and two other Marshals take Valerie on the run. And as it becomes dangerously clear Valerie’s testimony has even bigger implications than they knew, they’ll do whatever it takes to make it out alive.

My Review

This was an enjoyable book from start to finish! I loved Casey: her spunk and her heart. She was not the perfect person. She had some deep seated issues that added a realness to her story. Likewise, I liked E.J. and the chemistry between them was excellent.

I enjoed this story. It paced very well and didn’t drag. I also noticed that this book didn’t follow the pattern of the first two in the series, which I appriecated. This was all in all an excellent story with strong characters.

Definitely look forward to more books by this author.

If. you have never ready Nancy Mehl but enjoy Terri Blackstock, Brandilyn Collins, or Christy Barritt you’ll enjoy Nancy Mehl.

Review: The Kremlin Conspiracy by Joel C. Rosenberg

About this Book

Everything he learned to protect our president, he must use to take out theirs.

With an American president distracted by growing tensions in North Korea and Iran, an ominous new threat is emerging in Moscow. A czar is rising in the Kremlin, a Russian president feverishly consolidating power, silencing his opposition, and plotting a brazen and lightning-fast military strike that could rupture the NATO alliance and bring Washington and Moscow to the brink of nuclear war. But in his blind spot is the former U.S. Secret Service agent, Marcus Ryker, trained to protect but ready to kill to save his country.

My Review

Honestly, this was a hard read for me. Early on in the book the author would jump between characters and timeframes that I found confusing. I struggled keeping track of who was who and their significance. Likewise, the story at times seemed to drag on. Please note I reviewed an unedited advanced reader copy, some of the “slow” parts may have been cleaned up for final publication.

For me, a big problem was I didn’t start caring about the main character until near the end of the story. If I had related to him more earilier maybe I would have enjoyed the story, not sure.

For people who like Jason Bourne type stories you would probably enjoy this book. Lots of action especially in the final section, although in my mind somewhat unrealistic. (Hence the Jason Bourne reference)

Based on the ending, I’m guessing this is a book one, otherwise the author is cruel.

Although, I wasn’t crazy about this book, I might read book two but I would definitely read another book by this author.
