NIGHTFALL by Lisa Phillips, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

(Benson First Responders Book 6)

"Success or failure is totally up to you. Don't make the wrong choice."

Violet Anderson was a sight to behold . . . lovely in face and form, fierce when it came to facing down angry wanna-be-adults and challenging their wrong behaviors. Her dual lifestyle as a paramedic and dedicated volunteer at a local teen center apparently left her little time to socialize. But didn't explain how Detective Blake Reed had somehow missed meeting the infamous "Lettie" whom his younger sisters had raved about. Until now. . . their paths crossing along a dangerous trajectory . . . especially for her. Drug gangs in Benson were fighting a turf war and someone wasn't playing fair.
Fast and furious . . . might best describe this book, but the author also managed to cover quite a bit of relational mine fields in the process, making the end result quite impressive! The power of prayer can never be underestimated.

"Lord . . . There were so many lives at stake." 
*I purchased this book and was under no obligation to provide a positive review. 3.5 stars

BackCover Blurb:

A woman determined to save lives.
Violet Anderson fights for survival every day, as an EMT and volunteering at a center for teens. But nothing will erase the fallout of hitting rock bottom. Determined to keep going, Lettie has to juggle her callings and pray nothing falls out of her grasp. When her personal and professional lives crash into each other, she lands in the middle of a police investigation. Her carefully constructed boundaries are about to fall. But facing the path God puts in front of her head on means she could gain everything she’s ever wanted.

A cop looking for a place to call home.
Detective Blake Reed might be new to Intelligence, but he’s spent years training for this. All his skills will be put to the test when he’s given an assignment to sniff out drug deals at the Benson Teen Center. When he realizes who Lettie really is, the flimsy foundation of his career is shaken. Will the past come back to bite him and destroy the good he’s been able to do?
With a dangerous bomber on the loose, Violet and Blake have to figure out how to keep it all from burning down. This time the entire first responder community is on the line.

Each Benson First Responders story is a stand-alone Christian romantic suspense.
