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.

It was a real pleasure to be first introduced to Jonas and Madison in a scene that highlighted how comfortable they are with each other and the fact that their friendship runs deep. The fact that Jonas has come every day since she was shot to help her spoke volumes about how much he cares, and the respect they have for personal and professional boundaries is also very telling. The reader knows from the beginning that there will be more happening between these two than friendship and their partnership on the job. But that takes second-stage to the job they have to do in catching the bank robbers, so that is where their primary focus lies.

While the reader does get glimpses of the physical attraction between these two, the comfortableness they have with each other and their humor is showcased in the book a lot more than the physical attraction. This is something that appeals to me as a reader because I’ve tired of reading stories that have the focus on sex. Partners who have chemistry between them then fall into bed is an overused trope in my estimation. While I don’t discount the importance of sexual intimacy in a relationship, that is not all there is to a strong bond between two people, and I loved the bond between Madison and Jonas. Since this is a continuing series, who knows what will happen romantically between these two in the future, but the fact that he might be willing to give up a job in D.C. to stay in Seattle and continue to be her partner speaks volumes about what kind of man he is. 

Madison is also a wonderful character. She’s strong woman who holds her own with the big boys, and she doesn’t back down from any of the challenges that come her way. I found her a truly enjoyable and believable character, and all through the book I cheered for her as she and Jonas traveled far and wide to track the bank robbers and bring them to justice.

The pacing of the novel is fast, and the reader hardly takes a breath before The Chase is on again, and the author is adept at keeping the reader guessing, wondering what could possibly happen next. The religious elements came through naturally, in most cases, and were definitely organic to the story, not tacked on because this is billed as Christian suspense. That was also another element that I appreciated. It makes for very awkward reading when something in a story is forced, and nothing was forced about this well written story. I highly recommend it to readers. But plan to spend time reading, as it is hard to stop in the wee hours of the night when one should be sleeping.

    1. Happy to share in the tour with the review, Kristine. I read normally at mealtimes and often had a two-hour lunch. LOL
