THE CHASE by Lisa Harris, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

 "Local law enforcement is asking the public for help in identifying two suspects - one male and one female - in connection with a recent rash of bank robberies across the state. Another bank was robbed today, leading to a string of events that left two people dead and a chase - "
Federal Marshalls Madison James and Jonas Quinn entered a chase the minute they walked into the bank on the corner of Hillside and Chapel Road; posing as emergency medical technicians they attempted to surreptitiously defuse a very dangerous hostage situation. Instead, they were caught in the crosshairs between four criminals who had turned desperately dangerous. It certainly wasn't how Madison had planned to begin her first day back on the job after recovering from a gunshot wound, but backing down wasn't an option for either of them . . . let the chase begin.

This accelerated suspense begins and ends on very high notes, but personally I wanted the story to dig a little deeper into the psyches of Madison and Jonas through personal conversations rather than internal musings, as they tip-toe around their growing affection for one another. Both are struggling with questions that don't have easy answers. Both have suffered great loss. Both carry a reoccurring burden of guilt. Fortunately, they both have a relationship with the One whose desire is that they "trust Him through the journey, even when it doesn't make sense".

In other words, the author has set up her readers to highly anticipate the next chapter in their story. And it's guaranteed to be a good one!

 BackCover Blurb:

US Marshal Madison James may not be sure who shot her three months ago, but she does know one thing--it's time to get back out into the field. When her partner, Jonas Quinn, receives a message that a federal warrant just came in on a man connected to a string of bank robberies, Madison jumps at the chance to get back to work. What she and Jonas find is a bank robbery in progress that's gone wrong--and things are about to get worse.

For these bank robbers, it's never been just about the money. It's about taking risks and adrenaline rushes, and getting caught is not part of the game. When the suspects escape, Madison and Jonas must hunt them down and bring them to justice before someone else--someone close to them--gets hurt . . . or worse.

From Seattle to the San Juan Islands, bestselling author Lisa Harris takes you on a nonstop chase where feelings are complicated and failure isn't an option.
