From the Publisher:

How can she expect anyone to believe her--when she can hardly believe it herself?

FBI special agent Nick Bradley has seen his share of kooks during his fifteen years with the Bureau. But Rachel Sutton is an enigma. She seems normal when she shows up at his office--until she produces a tattered Raggedy Ann doll and tells him about a strange feeling of terror it gives her when she touches it. Nick dismisses her, only to stumble across a link between the doll and an abducted child, setting in motion a chain of events that uncovers startling connections--and puts Rachel's life on the line.

Filled with palpable suspense and heartwarming romance, In Harm's Way is the final installment of the thrilling Heroes of Quantico series.

My Thoughts:

As many of you know, I do not read series books out of order--it is a major pet peeve of mine.  Well, this book ended up being an exception to that rule.  As I am still trying to catch up on reading review books (due to lots of reading time being lost while helping my sister with her wedding), I was not able to read the first two books in Irene Hannon's Heroes of Quantico series before starting In Harm's Way.  That being said--I will most definitely be borrowing them from my sister (newly married!) as soon as I get caught up, so I can see what I missed.

In Harm's Way was my first time sampling Irene Hannon's Romantic Suspense...and...I'm happy to say that I absolutely loved it!  I thought the entire book was fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat, what's gonna happen next entertainment.  I grumbled and groaned every time I had put it down!  Yes, it's that good...at least in my opinion.

As I always say, it's more difficult for me to review suspense/mystery books as I don't want to give away any surprises/twists--trust me, this book has plenty.  =)  If you haven't read it yet, and you enjoy a good mystery, you are in for a treat!

Rachel and Nick will quickly make a place for themselves deep in your heart.  I really enjoyed getting to know them, and watching them discover one another's secrets.  Rachel loves music and art; while Nick's job allows him to be somewhat more adventurous.  Nick lives his life with Christ at the center, but Rachel isn't sure what she believes as far as religion goes.  When they realize they had similar childhoods, their blossoming relationship moves to an even deeper level.  Prepare yourself for lots of twists and turns, all of which will eventually lead you to a very exciting ending!

Great review!! Love that the heroine is wearing glasses on the cover!! :)

Hi Carrie ~

That's something else I meant to mention in my review! I love the fact that you can actually see the characters faces on the cover. I think they fit perfectly with their descriptions. So many covers no longer show faces, and it annoys me to no end! ;)

Thank you for the great review, Lori! I'm glad you enjoyed "In Harm's Way." Since the stories in my three Heroes of Quantico books stand alone (no hanging plot threads from book to book, which drive me crazy as a reader!), you don't have to read the previous two books to enjoy this one. But I hope you go back and read them, too! And please watch for my next book, "Fatal Judgment," coming in January. Irene Hannon

I know it's great that she's wearing glasses...maybe that means I'll be on a romance cover one day...LOL totally kidding! :-P

I loved this book too! I'm glad I downloaded the first one from Amazon...just gotta find the time to read it!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts once again! :-)

XOXO~ Renee

WOW! Hello, Ms. Hannon--I'm honored that you dropped by. :)

It's great to know that I can read this series out of order, because I'm really looking forward to reading the first 2 as soon as I have a chance.

Thank you for the heads up on your upcoming release! I've added it to my list of books to watch for. ;)

Hey Renee! *waving*

It's great that you can see Rachel's face (and her glasses) on the cover--in a way, I felt that they were a significant part of the story.

You would look great as a "cover" girl! ;)
