Alright here is the actual Book Report...
“What if she couldn’t figure out what happened?
What if she physically could not bring the person responsible for Kit’s death to justice?
Latham had leaned back into his chair, his gaze thoughtful, arms folded across his chest. His eyes seemed to look right through her, focused on an unseen target. Heather recognized the look on his face. He was solving a case deep in the recesses of his mind.
And with a bum leg and strict orders to steer clear of the investigation, she’d never crack the case before he did. At least with him, she’d have access to all of his connections, research and mobility.
Suddenly she wanted to tell Latham everything she knew. Tell him about the crash and Kit’s worries. Tell him that she knew this wasn’t an accident. But what if he wasn’t willing to help her? She had to get his word, had to get him to agree.
Swallowing thickly, she closed her eyes for a moment. “There’s more,” she said.” Taken from the inside cover of the book.
I have read Liz Johnson before so I jumped at the chance to review this book for her and put it on my blog…HOWEVER I’m pretty sure if she was my teacher she would FAIL me for being late. REALLY LATE! I simply love the way that Liz dives down into the characters, telling me simple characters at first and slowly diving into their past and diving hard into the story line.
The simple part of the book is about a sister (Kit) who dies in a plane crash and the other sister (Heather) figures out who ended up responsible for the death. It has twists and turns as the “bad guys” try to kill Heather. Even though Heather is an FBI agent she is NOT allowed on the case until she meet Latham the Sheriff’s deputy in charge of the case. (Which he has a past all of his own)So what ends up happening? I know but I think it would be more fun for you to find out and read it on your own.
But I will end up answering some of the discussion questions in the back for possibly more glimpses into the plot and characters of this Love Inspired Suspense.
“Heather misses out on the opportunity to go to Kit’s funeral. How do you think that affects Heather’s drive to find the man responsible for Kit’s death?” – I actually think it helps the drive for Heather to find the man responsible. Most people think of a person’s funeral as a place to say “good bye” or some sort of closure for them.
“Heather and Kit shared a special bond as sisters. Do you have a sibling with whom you are very close? What makes your relationship special?” – I actually have 1 younger brother and 2 younger sisters…I would say growing up I wasn’t really close to any of them specially (there were big age spans between us. But now that we are older and mostly adults we get along better. We might not have a lot of similar things to talk about on the phone…BUT we ALWAYS have laughs and good times when are together.
