Her Every Move by Kelly Irvin

 




ABOUT THE BOOK

He’s a cop trying to stop a serial bomber. And she’ll stop at nothing to clear her own name. 

When a deadly bomb goes off during a climate change debate, librarian and event coordinator Jackie Santoro becomes the prime suspect. Her motive, according to Detective Avery Wick: to avenge the suicide of her prominent father, who was accused of crimes by a city councilman attending the event. 

Though Avery has doubts about Jackie’s guilt, he can’t exonerate her even after an extremist group takes responsibility for the bombing and continues to attack San Antonio’s treasured public spaces. 

As Jackie tries to hold her shattered family together, she has no choice but to proceed with plans for the Caterina Ball, the library system’s biggest annual fundraiser. But she also fears the event provides the perfect opportunity for the bomber to strike again. 

Despite their mistrust, Jackie and Avery join forces to unmask the truth—before the death toll mounts even higher. 

Bestseller Kelly Irvin is back with a nail-biting romantic suspense where nothing is certain until the very last page. 


MY REVIEW

Loved this fast paced sit on the edge of your seat thriller!
I think in my opinion this is the best one yet!
Irvin has added the right amount of faith elements and I really enjoyed watching God at work here.
I loved that the characters were realistic and flawed. No one isn't perfect. Not even cops but I know that most do their best.
I think that my favorite thing was the guessing as to who dun it. I thought I had guessed correctly but even I was surprised at the end. It wasn't who I thought it was.
Lots of twists and turns that will have Irvin's fans screaming and shouting at Jackie and Wick (and a few others as well)./as they try to find out the reason behind the bombings.
Some of this story will have you sighing in relief too.
I have a few favorite scenes in this book as well but I won't say because I don't want to spoil the book.
Overall, a great book! I finished just a little while ago around 2:30 am. I was sad to see the book end.
I highly recommend!
My thanks to Thomas Nelson publishers for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
