Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
Okay, so admittedly not Christian Fiction, and if I remember right there were a few scenes that were on the graphic side, but this is one book that has stuck with me for years. When my hubby Nate and I had our engagement pictures done we happened to pop into a library. We were each asked to hold up a book and he didn’t know which one to use so I handed him this one. It was one I’d been telling him he needed to read. (I DID get him to read it but I don’t remember if it was before or after our pics). Witness protection has always fascinated me. I think part of it is that even though I wouldn’t want to witness a crime worthy of placing me in it, I still find the concept of reinventing yourself with a new name and persona intriguing. I remember reading a copy of this one from the library in a single day. When I finished I walked downstairs to my neighbor’s door and told her to “do herself a favor and start it in the morning.” The action and suspense were sooo well done.
What made me think of this one for this week is that I just bought another book by this author that I haven’t read yet. Over the weekend Nate and I went to Canada to visit a huge bookstore I saw while driving to Michigan a few weeks ago. It was only about 40 minutes away so it wasn’t too bad of a drive. And I only came home with 2 books so I behaved haha. But especially if you like action and suspense novels this is one that you simply CAN’T put down. HIGHLY recommend!
About the Book:
From the number one New York Times bestselling coauthor of Judge & Jury and Lifeguard comes this electrifying solo debut, The Blue Zone.
Kate Raab’s life seems almost perfect: her boyfriend, her job, her family . . . until her father runs into trouble with the law. His only recourse is to testify against his former accomplices in exchange for his family’s placement in the Witness Protection Program. But one of them gets cold feet. In a flash, everything Kate can count on is gone.
Now, a year later, her worst fears have happened: Her father has disappeared—into what the WITSEC agency calls “the blue zone”—and someone close to him is found brutally murdered. With her family under surveillance, the FBI untrustworthy, and her father’s menacing “friends” circling with increasing intensity, Kate sets off to find her father—and uncover the secrets someone will kill to keep buried.
