Christian Romantic Suspense is my favourite genre, and The Chase ticks all the boxes - likeable and intelligent heroine, hardworking and heroic hero, with a lot of action, some humour, a growing relationship, a strong cast of supporting characters and an underlying Christian theme.
FBI Special Agent Santiago Harris (Tigo) is the classic rogue player who will if necessary barge headlong into situations that could easily take him down. Successful author of women's fiction and former news anchor Kariss Walker has pursued the case of a young Hispanic girl coined "Cherished Doe" found starved to death near a Houston low-rent apartment district for several years. A now cold-case, she wants to write a novel about the girl, making it a suspense, and her uppity New York literary agent refuses to back her new effort. In order to re-investigate the case and do the proper research, Kariss engages her old friend in the FBI. He assigns her to the reluctant agent Tigo who's way deep in an investigation of gun running by a powerful Houston gang. Trying to figure out all the players through his informant turns out badly. When Kariss is inadvertently involved in a gang shooting at the hospital, Tigo now has to figure out how to protect her along with everything else.
A mutual admiration develops between the two with each one recognizing certain likable qualities in each other while respect forms. It isn't heavy-handed or silly attraction but it's there for both of them to fight off and deny.Read more ›
What I did like about this book was that the author was not afraid to imbue her characters with some values. Kariss is unembarrassed by her christianity and Tigo assumes responsibility for his ailing mother without whining or resentment. Both characters demonstrated restraint in their budding romance. Many romantic suspense novels read more like soft core porn and I, for one, prefer the less is more approach.
Unfortuantely, the rest of the novel is just dudmb. Kariss is one of the stupidest heroines in recent memory. She drives into a crime ridden ghetto with a new jaguar and then gets out of the safety of her car. Is it any surprise she is accosted and mugged? Stupidity is not an attractive feminine characteristic. She sticks her nose in where it doesn't belong and inteferes with Tigo's more dangerous investigations. Moreover, her problems are unbelievable. Few agents and publishers would drop a bestselling author because they want to try something new. It is far more likely that they would capitalize on it.Read more ›
