BOOK REVIEW: OBSESSION (NATCHEZ TRACE RANGERS #2)

BOOK BY: Patricia Bradley

Patricia Bradley does it again – she creates an exciting read full of suspense, action and a bit of romance. This book requires lots of time to read in one sitting because once you start – you won’t want to put it down.

Honestly, this book is full of unique connections and twists and turns that it left my head spinning. Who wants Emma dead? Or is it Sam who is the intended target? Is this character or that one behind the shootings and digging historical sites? No – it’s got to be this other guy, because he’s just not likeable. Is Emma’s brother really alive or is he dead? Who really killed that girl ten years ago? Add in an unsolved murder and a missing brother, this novel has all the makings for an exciting action movie.

Obsession is a fast-paced read dealing with Erotomania (believing that there is that one special person who is deeply in love with them). The connection male characters have with the heroine leaves each one highly suspect as the real culprit behind the attacks that occur throughout the book. And each one is intimately connected with the ten year old disappearance of Emma’s twin brother – including the man she trusts with her protection.

If you’re going to read a CF suspense novel, you won’t be disappointed with Obsession, book two in the Natchez Trace Park Rangers series by Patricia Bradley.

Standoff (Natchez Chase Rangers #1)

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK BY: Patricia Bradley

A fast-paced, sit on the edge of your seat kind of read that will leave readers guessing “who done it” until the end.

This first installment of The Natchez Trace Park Rangers starts off with a bang, and leaves our heroine whirling through an emotional minefield. Freshly graduated Law Enforcement Ranger Brooke Danvers is driven to find her father’s killer and what she stumbles into is something sinister, something that goes all the way to the top of the government.

No one can be trusted and every character is a suspect.

Even undercover National Park Ranger, Luke Fereday – neighbour and friend.

The first couple of chapters are peppered with characters and snippets of backstory while the action speeds by. It took me a few pages to figure out who was who and their connections to each other. I don’t think more backstory would have helped, perhaps a bit slower with the action, but then again, I’m not complaining.

There is plenty of everything in this novel – action, secrets, shocking reveals and no want of reader surprises. The author did a fabulous job of developing motives (and characters) that I had a hard time guessing who the killer was.

The only downside to the story, was that the spiritual thread is very, very subtle. It’s not until the second half of the book we’re introduced to our heroine’s faith side. Her older neighbour Daisy, provides the majority of the spiritual thread for this Christian Fiction novel.

I quite enjoyed the story and look forward to the second book in the series.
