“The Escape” is the first book in the US Marshals series by Lisa Harris. The suspense starts from almost the beginning of the book which made this book really easy to get into reading and made it hard to put down. The main characters, US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn, really play well off of each other. The romance to me does not start from the very beginning like the suspense does, but instead it slowly builds which makes it more believable and realistic especially given both of the characters’ backgrounds. There are curve balls thrown your way throughout the novel that make it even more intriguing. If you like suspenseful books with a twist and some romance thrown in, then this book is definitely for you. This was an excellent start to a series.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in order to give an honest review.
This book contains “The Doctor’s Christmas” by Marta Perry and “The Twins’ Family Christmas by Lee Tobin McClain. Both of these stories have similar themes of forgiveness and redemption. In “The Doctor’s Christmas”, Maggie Davis has issues trusting people because of her past and Dr. Grant Hardesty is having a problem letting go of his past as well. Throughout this story, you find yourself rooting for both of them and wishing they would realize they should be together. In “The Twins’ Family Christmas”, Lily Watkins comes to stay at the ranch her aunt owns in order to check on her former roommate’s kids. She is having a hard time not blaming herself for that same roommate’s death. While Pastor Carson Blair who is the late husband of Lily’s former roommate is trying to come to terms with the death of his wife and also give his twins the best Christmas. If you like uplifting Christmas books, then you’ll enjoy both stories that are included in this book.
