More About This Book

Overview

Sara Michaels is the daughter of a prominent senator who has just announced his candidacy for President of the United States--the same senator who has been receiving death threats against his family.

Sara Michaels is also the owner of a self-help clinic and is hell-bent--despite the FBI's warnings--on leading a group of ten women on a two-week sojourn through the Rocky Mountains.

In an effort to protect Sara, the FBI recruits homicide detective Jaime Hutchinson to infiltrate the group and secretly provide the protection they are so certain Sara will need. After some clever maneuvering, Jaime finds herself welcomed by the ten conservative women--who soon begin playing matchmaker with Sara and Jaime.
But then Jaime is reminded of the reason that she has joined this group of women when she's forced to lead them out of the mountains and away from a sniper's bullets.

Will Sara finally figure out who is behind the death threats? And will Jaime realize the truth--and be able to save Sara before it's too late?

    Outstanding romantic mystery

    Gerri Hill has already proven herself to be an accomplished and popular author with several books published; however The Target may rank as her best. She has written a terrific adventure story, full of suspense, intrigue and a romance, that will probably have you reading the book in one sitting, an assumption based on personal experience.

    Detective Jaime Hutchinson is designated by her police department to protect a woman who doesn't think she needs protecting. Sara Michaels is the owner of a self-help clinic for women and the daughter of a senator who has received death threats since announcing his candidacy for the Presidency. Sara is sure the threats can't be aimed at her since she hasn't talked to her ultraconservative father in years, so she intends to take her latest class of women on the traditional culminating activity of their therapy, a two week hiking trek in the wilderness. Jaime manages to infiltrate the group undercover and finds herself in the company of a delightful group of women, including the somewhat uptight Sara. As the trip progresses Jaime finds she is really enjoying the experience and also begins to believe that the threats were unfounded, until someone starts shooting at them. Then a race ensues. No one knows where they are and most of these women have never spent any time in the wild. They need to reach safety in a hurry, but they have limited skills. The trip was intended to show the women that they could be more self-reliant and life has dealt them the ultimate test of their skills. And, if they reach safety, then the problem facing Jaime will be to figure out who is trying to kill Sara and how it might be connected to her father's political aspirations.

    There are numerous positive aspects to this book. The interaction of the characters is superb. The women in the therapy group add a special dimension to what could have been just another romance story. They provide a good lesson in how people can restart their lives no matter what has happened to them previously and their interactions with Jaime provide more than one humorous scene. Jaime and Sara have precisely the correct amount of tension between them and, although a romance does develop, the focus of the story is on their determination to save the women in this group from a tragedy they had no part in creating. The frightening part about the book is that what happens to the women and the reason behind it are plausible. The women in the group could be better defined in their characteristics and histories and the climax of the story is perhaps a little predictable and rushed, but neither one of those detracts from the overall enjoyment of the book.

    Right On Target

    This latest novel by Gerri Hill is exciting and will keep you turning pages. It is a romance/thriller/mystery. It's pure escapism. It's hugely entertaining and holds tension and interest throughout. Sara Michaels is a successful purveyor of the self-help, group counseling, self-empowering type, with a clinic, a book, and a video. Her ten-week course ends with two weeks of hiking in the mountains, camping, celebrating self-reliance and the confidence her clients have gained. Her father, Senator Michaels, is running for president, and he does not approve of his lesbian daughter, nor does she approve of his ultra conservative politics. They haven't spoken in years. Just as a precaution, the FBI asks for a Denver detetcive with hiking experience to trail along with Sara's group. It seems there have been recent death threats directed at the senator's daughter, whose lifestyle many of his supporters hate. Detective Jaime Hutchinson accepts the assignment, thinking vacation, and also that Ms. Michaels is very attractive, which would make keeping an eye on her a pleasant task. If someone really wanted to kill or kidnap a senator's daughter, they wouldn't wait until she was on a hike in the middle of nowhere, they'd simply wait outside her house or office and take her out. Sparks of attraction fly as the two women get to know each other and Jaime inserts herself into the group. But things turn deadly serious, and Jaime is on her own in the Rocky Mountains, trying to protect eleven women and get them to safety. Puzzling is the fact that Sara says she's never met or spoken to Special Agent Ramsey, the FBI liason who told Jaime's captain that he had met with Sara and she had refused FBI protection. So who's shooting at them with a high powered rifle? The women are sitting ducks, and can be picked off one by one unless Jaime can somehow elude the shooter and get them all to safety. Thrilling action, skinny dipping in hot springs, beautiful scenery, enough action for a movie, Hill's tenth novel is well worth reading. Enjoy.

    Fantastic Writing

    Gerri Hill is masterful at creating a suspensful plot. Target is a page turner that held my attention. She also did a fantastic job of building both the relationship between the primary characters as well as creating sexual tension. She made me want to go hiking in the mountains. Nicely Done
