Rising Danger Review

An environmental terrorist is planting explosives on dams in the Twin Cities, and Bristol Bachmann and her bomb-sniffing dog must hurry to find them before everything ends up underwater. That means teaming up with the dams’ supervisor—an ex-boyfriend she never thought she’d see again. When the bomber sets his sights on Bristol and her K-9, it becomes a lethal game of cat and mouse.

I appreciated that Rising Danger is set in the Twin Cities where I have lived my whole life. Reading about familiar places is always fun. The author did a good job setting the stage, and she certainly knows a thing or two about dogs! The plot of this work of Christian romantic suspense was good, the pace was fast and explosive, and I enjoyed the faith elements she used to tell the story, but if overt Christian messages make you feel uncomfortable, this one might not be for you. As I was reading, it felt like I was watching a Hallmark movie, however, which is something I avoid. Bristol’s constant worrying about falling for Remington (these types of names are always used in romance novels) became tiresome. I still enjoyed reading it, but it only earned 3 stars from me.
