The Traitor's Pawn by Lisa Harris



When FBI agent Jack Shannon arrives in Corpus Christi, Texas, he is focused on one thing: find the man who has been selling encrypted government secrets to the Chinese through online birding chat rooms. But when a senator is shot during a hunting trip and the woman he was with is abducted, Jack agrees to join the search--especially when he discovers that the kidnapping victim is Aubrey Grayson, a woman he was once in love with.

As the search continues, it becomes clear the senator may not have been the intended victim--and Aubrey may be connected to the other case Jack is supposed to be working on. Can Jack untangle the knots before it's too late? And when he learns the truth, will it be too painful to get past?

Join the hunt for the truth--and a traitor--in this tension-laden story of secrets, betrayal, and second chances. 


This book was just so awesome and it's a great start to a new series! 
 I finished it late into the night last night and this morning I had a book hangover. But so worth the read! I even tried to put it down to go to bed and I couldn't make my eyes close because I kept thinking about Aubrey, Jack and Adam but mostly Aubrey.
This story is about finding the truth. Sometmes the truth ends up hurting but in the end it can also give us peace if we can come to accept it. It can make us or break us this is where forgiveness comes in. 
This is one of my favorite quotes because it's what I've been trying to say all along in my other reviews Jack tells Aubrey this because she's waring within herself on her feelings about her father. 
"I can't make that decision for you, but I do know that sometimes forgiveness is more for the person who needs to forgive than the person who need to receive it. Even if that's all that's left to be said."
Folks, this is so very true even if it's only for yourself. At least you can be in peace. Life is too short.
 I've been there and done that. It isn't easy to forgive someone who's done you wrong or whatever the case is. I had to learn along the way with Jesus. I've had to ask Jesus to help me and you know what He did! 
This book has so many twists and turns that will make you eager to turn the pages to see what is happening next! It did me! And I loved every minute of it!
I thought Jack was just the best! I loved his kind and caring ways and oh my he can be by my side any time he wants. I felt that he was the best listener! His support for Aubrey meant a lot to me as a woman because not many men are like that. 
Aubrey is my heroine. Why you ask? Because she wants to see this thing through and that my friends takes Jesus and a whole lot of determination not to give up.  I love her personality because it's  a lot like mine. She can be my friend and sister any time! I loved getting to know her. 
I enjoyed in getting to know the supporting characters too. Like Adam. I thought he was the best friend anyone could have.
I liked how Harris added the theme Trust. because I couldn't have said it better myself. Trust is the most important thing other than Forgiveness. 
Here's another favorite quote " Sometimes, all we can do is trust" in God to do what is right and doing what's right isn't always easy. Especially when we don't things are fair in life and it tends to make us angry. I know it does me. It makes me angry because there are rules that are "supposed to be for certain people" and the rest well you get my drift.  I don't like that. It's not fair. 
It's great to have friends in Christ around you who can give you a gentle reminder every now and then when we need it. 

Join the hunt for the truth--and a traitor--in this tension-laden story of secrets, betrayal, and second chances. 
This book was so very good that I can't express it enough.  I highly recommend it. 
My thanks to Revell and the author with NO compensations received. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
