Reviews A Secret to Die For

  • Sarah Grace
    Wow! Another wild ride from Lisa Harris. As soon as I saw that this book features a character dealing with PTSD, I knew I wanted to read it. Detective Nate Quinn is still dealing with the psychological aftereffects of a bombing that killed 18 people, including his partner. From the first chapter, I loved reading Nate's story and his struggles with faith following such a traumatic event. Harris did a great job depicting this subject in a way that ...

    A Secret to Die For has a lot of action, a whole lot of action in the first half of the novel. While the action continues in the second half, there is a bit more focus on the blooming romance between Grace and Nate in the latter half.I liked that Grace wasn't a widow, but rather divorced after a tragic event rocked her marriage. Young widows are used rather frequently by authors. I found the premise of a group trying to take down a power grid in ...

    Once I turned the first page I was gone, be ready for a fast-paced action packed read. You will never see most of what happens coming, and yet it is one of those being at the right place at the right time happenings.The author does a wonderful job of keeping your attention, from beginning to end, and the title sure pulled me in, and you will quickly know how the title applies, and when you learn what is happening it could be so true.There is a bi...

    Lisa Harris certainly knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat! From the very first sentence to the very last I was completely sucked into this story! It almost felt like an episode of a crime show (which I love) but with a deeper look into everything.Grace and Nate had a bit of a unique relationship. They had known each other in college when Nate’s best friend was dating Grace but they’d lost touch. Now they meet again under very crazy...

    A sharp clatter jerked Grace Callahan out of the novel she was reading. She dropped the paperback onto the empty side of the queen-sized bed, then sat up, trying to determine if the noise had come from inside the house, or outside. More than likely it was her neighbor’s dog again, knocking something over. Or maybe she’d simply imagined it. She glanced at the book’s ominous cover. Next time she should stick to reading something less…intens...
  • Joan
    I have mixed feelings about this novel of romantic suspense. Harris is a capable author and the novel has good scenes of suspense and romantic tension. I did have some issues with the way the plot developed.One thing I can't tolerate is suspense due to poor police procedure. It happened twice in this novel. An attempt had been made on Gracie and she is obviously a target of the bad guys. Shortly afterward, police detective Nate takes her to a loc...

  • Debbie
    "A Secret to Die For" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. Detective Nate recently lost his partner and several friends in a bombing incident. He had survivor's guilt and was determined to keep his old friend, Grace, safe. Grace recently lost her child and then her marriage and still struggled with the loss. When she discovers that a murdered client left her clues to stopping a terrorist attack, she's determined to feel useful by helping, even...
  • Amanda
    This story was full of action and adventure. The characters are in a race against time as they try to save themselves and the country from being destroyed.The action scenes were interesting but I found them to be a bit too much after a while. At times the situations seemed unrealistic. I also found (in this book and many other romantic suspense Christian fiction books) that even when their lives are in danger and they are running from people who ...
  • Linda
    Lisa Harris is on my short list of must-read suspense authors, and she nails it again with her newest release. Beginning with the heart-in-the-throat opening and continuing through the final sentence, A Secret to Die For riveted my attention. High stakes and non-stop action make the pages fairly crackle with tension, and the plot is all too believable in today's high-tech world. Harris adds the perfect touch of romance, upping the angst and weavi...
  • Karen
    Another suspenseful crime drama full of action! A psychologist becomes a target when one of her clients ends up murdered. A former friend whose first day back on the job becomes her ally as they chase the clues and the plot expands to an FBI investigation. This book was a real page turner, with an interesting, relevant plot involving cyber crimes. The action and police investigation pauses to allow for spiritual discussions, but in a realistic wa...

Each has experienced heartache and are trying to find their way back to normal. They re-connect after many years on a case that Nate is working.

A Secret to Die For is no exception.Grace Callahan is finding her footing again after a tragedy and the subsequent fallout. Nick Quinn is back at work after surviving a hotel bombing in Dallas.

  • Melissa
    This book is a solid 4 & 1/2 stars for me. I enjoyed getting to know Grace and Nate and their struggles and heartaches. Their losses and how they dealt with them spoke to me on a personal level as I have dealt with the deaths of two of my best friends, so that was an aspect of the book that I liked a lot. The premise of the book and what Grace and Nate are rushing to stop was more than a little scary to picture happening in reality but made for a...
  • Amanda (Books, Life and Everything Nice)
    Thank you to NetGalley, Revell and Lisa Harris for an ARC ebook copy to review. As always, an honest review from me.My rating is actually 3.5 stars, but since there aren't half stars I always round up.Another good novel from Lisa Harris. Not my all time favorite from her, but still a good solid suspenseful mystery. It was nice to get back into the world of police detectives solving mysteries in Christian fiction.I enjoyed the world of conspiracy ...
  • Cheryl
    I was in the mood for a romantic suspense. Which this book is one. Yet, I thought the chemistry that Grace and Nate had was "medium". There is nothing wrong with "medium" but I was looking and hoping for "spicy". However, as this book is published by a Christian publisher, I can understand the heat level. On the bright side, this book is not preachy in regards to the word of God. The story started out good. It had a intense scene. From there the ...

  • Dana Michael
    Lisa Harris has written a book that is a little scary if you think about it. If this story line was to be true and it happened we would be in quite a pickle. What if someone had the hacking skills to take down the computer grid? No banking, electricity, water, food. It would be chaos for sure. This romantic suspense explores this and it is up to our heroine and hero to help stop it. The problem? She doesn't know the secret that her dead patient l...

It took no time to have the whole book read in a few hours.A Secret to Die for gets four stars from me. I recommend it for readers who love good mystery and suspense filled books, with an element of faith.
  • Better Read than Dead
    A Secret to Die For? Maybe NotStrap in folks, it’s time to spill the tea. This novel reads like an episode of Criminal Minds, or any cop show really. By that we mean that if you watch enough of them, it kinda seems like it’s the same episode over and over again with slightly different characters and situations. This book felt done before, it wasn’t new and groundbreaking. It’s kinda just the same old cop story we’ve heard a million tim...

    This is only the second book that I've read by Lisa Harris but she is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.

The murder of a computer security specialist and his suspected connection to a possible cyberterrorist attack on the United States powergrid creates a story filled with adventure,intrigue and danger. Psychologist Grace Callahan and police detect...
  • Kelly Bridgewater
    Lisa Harris writes romantic suspense, and I have read a couple of them. I really enjoyed her Nikki Boyd's series. With plenty of action, I had a hard time putting the first three down. With romantic suspense, the story can go three ways: fifty percent romance and fifty percent suspense, mostly suspense and little romance, or mostly romance with little suspense. I prefer my romantic suspense to be the first two. If it is the last one, then I'm rea...

I don't remember the title, but I do remember thinking it was "just OK". She has gone from being just OK to one of my favorite suspense authors whose books I look forward to reading. This book is her first after her awes...
