Dani Pattrey: Blind Spot

By Kelly Bridgewater

FBI agent Declan Grey is in the chase of his life--but isn't sure exactly what he's chasing after. Threatened by a terrorist that "the wrath is coming," Grey fears something horrible is about to be unleashed on American soil. When his investigation leads him to a closed immigrant community, he turns to Tanner Shaw to help him. She's sought justice for refugees and the hurting around the world, and if there's anyone who can help him, it's Tanner.

Tanner Shaw has joined the FBI as a crisis counselor . . . meaning she now has more opportunity to butt heads with Declan. But that tension also includes a spark she can't deny, and she's pretty sure Declan feels the same. But before anything can develop between them, they discover evidence of a terror cell--and soon are in a race against the clock to stop the coming "wrath" that could cost thousands their lives.

My Thoughts:

In my opinion, nothing is better than a goodromantic suspense with tons of suspense and a hint of romance. Like most people, I was introduced to Dani Pettrey's writing with her Alaskan Courage story. I really enjoyed that series, and I am glad that she has continued writing another series. With the third addition to the Chesapeake Valor series, Blind Spot, the story has just what I'm looking for. Plenty of nail-biting moments and characters who have gripped my attention from the first book, Cold Shot, and continue to Blind Spot.

I enjoy Pettrey's writing. She is great at inviting me into the story and capturing my attention from the get go. Right in the first chapter, Pettrey invites me into the tension and sparks my interest with the idea of something sinister. She also is good at making the setting come to life. Also, I enjoy how this series revolves around terrorist attacks and trafficking, which is completely relevant to the news today.

It was nice spending time getting into Declan and Tanner's head this time around. They have been on the fringes in the previous two stories, so it was nice to hear their story from their perspective. It was nice seeing what made them tick and watch their romance develop on a deeper level. Tanner is a smart, athletic woman who has a number of hidden skills that Declan stands in awe at. While Declan doesn't appear to be such a mean guy when Pettrey allowed me to come close and personal to his personality.

There are two mystery plots in this story. One has to do with a dead man and a "missing" couple. The other subplot has to do with a terrorist plot that I believe has been carried over from the previous novel. I enjoyed both stories and couldn't wait to see justice served. There were moments where I held my breath, waiting to see what danger the characters would end up in. Pettrey does a great job at actually leaving the end as a cliff-hanger, which I didn't see coming, but I can tell you I'm really happy she did. Makes me want to return for the next installment.

Overall, Dani Pettrey's Blind Spot is a thrill-ride of a tale with two different stories fighting for the central story with fascinating characters that kept me glued to the page. I highly recommend this novel for fans of Brandilyn Collins, Lynette Eason, and Carrie Stuart Parks. I really can't wait for the next book.

I received a complimentary copy of Blind Spot from Bethany House Publishers, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
