Pursued by Lisa Harris

Pursued by Lisa Harris

Nikki Boyd's flight into Nashville was routine--up until the crash landing at the airport. When the dust settles, Nikki discovers that the woman who had been seated next to her on the plane is missing--and no one will admit she was ever there. Erika Hamilton had been flying to Nashville with an air marshal as a key witness in an upcoming grand jury trial. When she flees from the crash, is she running from trouble or straight into it? Before Nikki can even see her family, she and her team are pulled into a missing persons case where the motives are as unclear as the suspects. 

My Thoughts:

Book #3 in The Nikki Boyd Files takes us on another trip with Special Agent Nikki Boyd of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations. Action fills the pages of this book from the start when the plane Nikki is traveling crashes upon landing and the woman sitting next to her mysteriously disappears.

This suspense story certainly delivers. It seemed that every other chapter significant setbacks held the heroine from accomplishing her mission but I have to admit that by the time I got to the last ten chapters I was exhausted. And so I skimmed ... yeah, not entirely proud of that but I really just wanted to see the story end and the good guy win and the bad guy go down. 

The story doesn't slow down much if at all regardless of the interpersonal struggles the heroine is facing. I know this is suspense but I really, really wanted something more to happen between Nikki and beau Tyler. After all, in the last novel they were so close ... and then BAM! I have to wait until next book and yet here I am still wanting some closure or something more ... maybe I've been reading too much romantic suspense 😐.  Regardless of my need for some romance, I did find the heroine's dismissive response to her family and friends post-plane crash (and several other life-threatening moments) a bit too much for me to empathize with. I get being all job-focused and whatever but I would've liked to seen Nikki respond differently--or at the very least a reasonable explanation besides a missing person case to keep her away from them. Even my soldier knows how important familial connection is post-traumatic events. 

The plot is full of crashes, explosions, and near-death experiences that will make suspense fans happy. The faith element isn't preachy but the heroine offers up prayer in her times of need, which at times felt superficial to the plot but authentic to the character. I think fans of Lisa Harris and Nikki Boyd will be satisfied with this new release and anxious for the next.
