Breach Of Trust by DiAnn Mills

Call of Duty Series, Book 1

Paige Rogers is a former CIA agent who lost all she treasured seven years ago when her entire team was killed in a covert mission. She blames their leader—Daniel Keary—whom Paige believes betrayed them. Disillusioned and afraid for her life, she disappeared and started a new life as a small-town librarian.

But when Keary announces his candidacy for governor of her state, he comes after Paige to ensure that she won't ruin his bid for office. He threatens everything she holds dear, and Paige must choose between the life of hiding that has become her refuge or risking everything in one last, desperate attempt to right old wrongs.

My Review:
Because of DiAnn Mills, I need botox! Almost every chapter had me raising my eyebrows, causing my forehead to wrinkle. This is one Christian fiction I enjoyed reading page after page.

The characters are believable, the plot is fast paced, and the ending ties up neatly. There's plenty of suspense with the protagonist, Paige Rogers, a CIA operative in hiding and a campaign for governor taking place. Thrown into the mix is high school football coach, Miles Laird, who plays a wanna-be lover.

However, I find fault when Ty Dalton, a man with only one redeeming quality--that of pride in his son--does not bother to go to the hospital to visit that injured son. That move is out of character for Ty, making his character flatter than necessary.

Written in third person narrative, the reader easily follows the thought process of each character. To heighten the drama, antagonist chapters are written in first person narrative and printed with a different font. Even though this is book one in a series, it is a stand-alone novel. I say, well done! Discussion questions are included.

Dianne Mills sure writes a variety of styles. I reviewed one early in blogging and didn't like it. But this one....this is great! She should stick with the suspense genre in her romance!

Thanks for popping over to my Window!

I need to READ more and spend less time on the computer! I want to join a reading challenge in 2009!

Maybe if I started a book would encourage me...hmm... thinking....

I love to read but have a major problem...NOT able to put a book down once I start!

I like mysteries and crime best..but have a couple of Gollums to read and a Curtiss Ann Matlock ... maybe I should make a list...
