Fatal Mistake by Susan Sleeman

An FBI agent must protect the woman who can identify a terrorist bomber in bestselling author Susan Sleeman's riveting romantic suspense novel. 

Each day could be her last...but not if he can help it.

Tara Parrish is the only person ever to survive an attack by the Lone Wolf bomber. Scared and emotionally scarred by her near death, she goes into hiding with only one plan--to stay alive for another day. She knows he's coming after her, and if he finds her, he will finish what he started.

Agent Cal Riggins has had only one goal for the past six months--to save lives by ending the Lone Wolf's bombing spree. To succeed, he needs the help of Tara Parrish, the one person who can lead them to the bomber. Cal puts his all into finding Tara, but once he locates her, he realizes if he can find her, the Lone Wolf can, too. He must protect Tara at all costs, and they'll both need to resist the mutual attraction growing between them to focus on hunting down the bomber, because one wrong move could be fatal.

My review:

  I have read a couple of books by Susan Sleeman, and liked what I read. This is her first trade paperback full length novel, her others being mass market paperbacks. I was happy to see she was coming out with a full length trade paperback novel, and I was not disappointed.

 What I liked about the book:

The plot; It fit with the modern day ISIS acts of terror. It was different enough of a plot that it didn't sound juts like other books or other plots by terrorists.

The suspense: This was a very suspenseful read. You knew who the bad guy was from the start of the book...everyone knew, but the attempts to catch him while protecting the woman he was trying to kill kept me turning pages to find out what was going to happen next.

The characters: I liked the whole FBI team. They all had unique personalities that Sleeman took time to cultivate and describe. I liked the main two characters the best of course, and was rooting for their romance. I am guessing there will be other books centering around the other FBI agents....I am hoping so. :)

 I even liked the bad guy...... not in an admire sort of way, he was just a great bad guy.

The faith aspect: Both main characters had trust issues with God, something I and many others can relate to. I appreciated that part of the story and it added a lot to the plot.

  Sleeman tied all of these things together to make a pulse pounding novel of suspense that I thoroughly enjoyed, and it had a great ending worthy of such a great book.
