Deadly Connection

Deadly Connection
The Deadly Secrets #2
Kathy Harris

Hannah Cassidy's day has just gotten so much worse. A  victim of an attack, a narrow escape from a kidnapper, and witnessing an attack on another young woman. Wrong place, wrong time? Or was she the intended target? TBI Special Agent Jake Matheson is going to find out. 

Having been on his way to meet someone Jack happens upon Hannah moments after her attack. Could the three women involved be related or connected somehow? Or was it a random attack in a popular location? Somehow Jack thinks that at least one of the three was the intended target and the intended victim most likely was going to be trafficked. 

When evidence and circumstances point to the potential of danger to Hannah, Jack, the Bureau, and Nashville Metro up their watch. But with few clues and a limited description finding their suspect just might prove more than a little challenging.

Deadly Connection is the second book in Kathy Harris's The Deadly Secrets series and it doesn't disappoint. The action begins from the opening line and mystery just seems to get deeper the further one gets into the book. There are reveals that let the reader into some of the background action but the question of why is not easily or quickly revealed. If you are a fan of contemporary Romantic Suspense with a not-in-your-face-Christian thread this is one you will want to check out. This is not a graphic suspense read but it doesn't shy away from topics that could easily lend themselves to such. Could be a good book for your next book club discussion.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - All thoughts expressed are my own.

Will they uncover the secrets between them before it becomes deadly? 

After fending off a would-be abductor, 27-year-old singer-songwriter Hannah Cassidy hides behind a car in the half-empty parking lot behind Pancake Pantry in Nashville. From there, she watches in horror as her attacker grabs another woman and pushes her into a nearby car. Within seconds, the vehicle speeds away. 

TBI Special Agent Jake Matheson may have planned a quiet day off and a date with Shannon―the only name her online profile revealed―for an introductory lunch, but after pulling into a parking space on 21st Avenue South, he hears a scream. He races to the back of the building and finds a frightened young woman bent forward and gasping for breath. 

Thrown together by uncanny circumstances and driven by the whys and what-ifs of secrets yet to be revealed, Hannah and Jake set out to find the connection between them before it becomes deadly.
