"The Survivor" by DiAnn Mills
Kariss meets Dr. Amy Garrett, who survived a brutal childhood attack in which the assailant was never found. Now Dr. Garrett wants her story written in a novel. Kariss wishes she could seek the advice of Special Agent Tigo Harris, but she broke off the relationship a few months prior and seeing him again would be too painful. She interviews Amy and conducts her own research, stepping unaware into danger. Tigo misses Kariss and wants her back, but he understands why she broke off their relationship. Instead, he concentrates on solving a car bombing and bringing the killer to justice. As Kariss's new story attracts an onslaught of danger that she never expected, can Tigo save the woman he loves and find out who wants her dead for writing about an unsolved cold case? (from book cover)
REVIEW: I did not enjoy this book, primarily because it dealt with a very brutal crime against a child. There were some good characters in the book that you could easily identify with and I did like the thread that the author wove throughout the book of God’s presence being with us and his guiding hand. If you enjoy crime shows such as CSI or Law & Order, then you may enjoy this book. Because of the subject matter, however, I don’t think it’s appropriate for young readers at all.
