For what it's worth, if I had the ability to give Peril 3 1/2 stars, I would...

Debut author, Suzanne Hartman, brings a little bit of romance, a little bit of suspense, a little bit NASCAR and a little bit of sci-fi to play in her new book, Peril. But what could be a tale unsure of what it wants to be, brings the different elements together in one cohesive piece. The author does very well at this as well as piecing together the scenes between the three different lives in the tale.

The best way to describe this tale though is to label it as a softer version of the American techno-thriller. The entire plot is dependent upon the technological (or sci-fi) aspect, yet the tale is mercifully never encumbered by over-explanation of the technology itself. And despite the importance of the technology, it is really only the frame that supports the character relationships.

The relationship between Lady Anne and NASCAR champion, Stuart Jackson proved to be the most interesting of the lot, and is the thing that kept me reading at times when I had other things that needed to be done. But turn the pages I did. Their last scene really does tie things up on a nice note, *spoiler alert* leaving lots of room for development in book two when it releases next year. It really is done very well and it is difficult not to like Stuart and feel for him just a bit (And let me say I hope things work out for the two of them by the end of the series... morbid, I admit).

There is an issue in this though, or rather, a potential one for some readers. I found myself wholly reading for the Stuart/LA relationship and little interested in the actual terrorist danger which is supposed to be the ticking time bomb of the tale. There just wasn't a lot of suspense in that aspect.

Joanne's husband is losing a battle with cancer. Joanne herself has recovered from paralysis, because of an adult-stem-cell treatment. She tries to trust God in the uncertainty.

Superwoman Lady Anne works as a secret service bodyguard. She has amazing strength but keeps her life private, showing up only once in a long while to special assignments. She saves the day for the king of a tiny Muslim country visiting America, not once but twice.

Stuart Jackson is a successful NASCAR champion who takes a shine to Lady Anne. But he can't find her.

Meanwhile, the Muslim extremists decide they want to kill Lady Anne too. But where is she?

I especially liked the unpredictability of this story and its believable characters.

Not being a NASCAR follower, I was pleasently entertained by this novel. It was hard to put down. All of the character's details create an engaging and interesting reading experience. In the beginning, I thought it would be a typical fast-read novel, but as I read further, I realized that there were more layers to the character's lives and individual stories. It really covers so many interest areas such as NASCAR, special agent and security forces, and family life.

I would recommend it for teens through adults.

Format: Paperback
Peril combined two of my favorite things suspense and NASCAR and Ms. Hartmann did it in such a way that I was enthralled from the first page until the very last. But it wasn't just the suspense and the racing that hooked me on this book, it was the characters as well. I was drawn to Lady Anne and Stuart and the rest of the cast of characters.

Ms. Hartmann did great research on NASCAR and combined it with the story in a way to keep it as a sideline to the story and make it interesting. For those of you not into racing, don't worry, this story is for you as well. The racing is really a sideline. It's Stuart's career and factors into the story from time-to-time but is not the focus of the book. I loved it though and thought the author did a great job incorporating it into the story.
The characters were amazing. I really liked Lady Anne, Stuart, Joanne, Neil and the children. Each character had something to add to the story and each character was really well defined. I felt I got to know each one and I liked that. I loved the faith that Joanne and Neil shared. It was amazing to see. I won't give away too much because this really is a book you need to read for yourself, but the characters really shine in Peril and I hope to see more of them in the next book.

The plot was great as well. It kept the book moving. I loved how Ms. Hartmann let the reader learn something a little bit at a time. It was really great. There was suspense through the whole book and just when you thought you knew what was going to happen, something else would happen. The author definitely kept me guessing and that was great. The book held my interest the whole time I read it and I had a hard time putting it down.

Over all I found this to be a very entertaining book.

Love this book! The author kept me guessing the entire way through. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, some new surprise would pop up. Lots of action and suspense in this novel intertwined with NASCAR, religion and terrorism. I can't wait for her next novel!
