Reviews A Secret to Die For

  • Sarah Grace Grzy
    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 ...

    Wow, now this was a fun suspense book! Ive been eagerly waiting for this book and it didnt disappoint.Grace Callahan has a secret to die for, only she doesnt know it. This book immediately starts with action as Grace is trying to get out of her house, realizing that she isnt alone. There is a lot of action and different events that happen throughout the book.

    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...

    This book was fast-paced. I was hooked from the beginning of it. I can tell you it kept me awake many evenings because I didn't want to put it down!Grace is dealing with some of her own issues when she learns one her clients was murdered. I didn't expect this book to have developed the characters so deeply. I also didn't expect the book to show how the characters deal with their traumatic pasts.I really enjoyed this book. I'm hoping it's part of ...
  • Melanie
    I didn't expect A Secret to Die For to have the storyline it did...I was surprised by what was really going on!I found the characters to be very nice. They had difficulties in their lives and things they had to work through which made them feel real. The romance was nice in the fact that they weren't strangers and knew each other in the past.The story was written very well and I enjoyed the suspense aspect. When you find out what is really going ...

    As Reader Friend Trixi so aptly put it -- "A Secret to Die for is to die for!" And while that is definitely true, just make sure you don't expire before you reach the nail-biting conclusion! Because this book is going to plunge you into a suspensey nosedive of aftershocks that will chill and thrill and definitely require a bit of recovery time. :-)And while the suspense is amazing, the in between action and casework bits bring such depth and mean...

    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 Nates best friend was dating Grace but theyd lost touch. Now they meet again under very crazy circu...

  • 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...
  • 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 ...
  • Virginia Winfield
    This is a wonderful book filled with suspense and romance. There are a lot of twists and turns. Grace and Nate become reunited after losing touch after college. Nate must protect Grace after she helps one of her patients. I really love this author and her stories. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
  • Rachel
    This was an interesting Christian "romantic suspense" novel, but I didn't enjoy it as much as other novels I've read in this genre by other authors. There was a good amount of action in the novel, but there was also a great deal of long conversations between the characters and a lot of internal dialogue taking place in the minds of the two main characters, which not only affected the pacing of the novel--making it feel that the intense events hap...

  • 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 ...
  • Hannah
    This one's fast-paced for sure! It kept me on the edge of my seat and wondering what would happen to Grace while the bad guys were trying to get what they think she has. I wasn't feeling great the day I read it, so I probably need to reread it to recall some details, but it kept my attention on a day with a bad headache and helped pass the afternoon. Anyway, so it turns out that Grace may have run across some folks who want to take down the power...
  • Joan Bannan
    I normally stay away from a series, but since this book two in a series was so highly commended by a Goodreads friend, I decided to make an exception. That friend said it wasn't necessary to read book one, but I'm wondering if I may have been more interested in the protagonist and other characters if I had.I didn't dislike this book, but it didn't grab me by the time I was a quarter of the way through so I decided to abandon it. I found the style...
  • Trixi
    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 neighbors dog again, knocking something over. Or maybe shed simply imagined it. She glanced at the books ominous cover. Next time she should stick to reading something lessintense when tryin...

  • 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...
