When army journalist Casey Jordan's attacked, she's convinced it's a random mugging—until a killer comes after the military team she's interviewing. But who's the real target: Casey or her ex—staff sergeant Travis Heath? Despite an attraction that still lingers, Travis pushed Casey away months ago, convinced military life leaves no room for attachments. But when the attacks grow increasingly personal, Travis begins to question his chosen path. As the targets of a killer's vendetta, though, it could be too late to make up for lost time…because he and Casey may not have a future to share.

Jodie Bailey just keeps writing great mysteries! The book continues the story of the soldiers of Ft. Bragg which Ms Bailey started in her book "Dead Run". In this book we learn the story of Travis and Casey who were introduced in "Dead Run". Great plot, but unlike her earlier books, I was able to figure out who the bad person was about half way through. That's not a criticism, just an observation. I liked the characters, and thought their relationship was credible. I loved the great respect they had for each other. It was nice to have the main characters from "Dead Run" return in this book. It's like reacquainting with old friends. Kudos to Ms Bailey for continuing to show mastery of her craft.

CALCULATED VENDETTA is the second book by Ms. Bailey that I read and I enjoyed it, though I think I should've read the back cover blurb before I started the book because it took me the longest time to figure out what Casey did for a living (journalism was a given, but how did it tie into the military) and how she was so involved with all these military types. The attacks did seem random, but I've been around Love Inspired Suspense long enough to know there is no such thing as random. They are planned down to a science and it will all pan out in the end. Who-dun-it, why, how, when, what for, you know the basic five questions that must be answered. I liked Casey and Travis and felt for these characters. If you are looking for a good suspense to read, don't miss CALCULATED VENDETTA. Available at your favorite retailers online. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

Buckle your seatbelts and get ready for another wild ride with this latest from Jodie Bailey. This is another edge of the seat suspense story with twists and turns that had me hooked from the first pages and kept me reading because I had to see what was going to happen next. I thoroughly enjoyed following the relationship develop between Casey and Travis as they tried to work through their past to see if they could built a future together all while trying to evade a killer. I was given a copy of this book, but a positive review was not required. The opinions expressed are my own. This is one that the reader who enjoys really good Christian romance and suspense will definitely want to add to their reading list.

When Army journalist Casey Jordan & Staff sergeant Travis Health met again, it's under dire circumstances! A killer is after one of them and will stop at nothing to silence them. Can they figure out the mystery before it's too late? Edge-of-your-seat-suspense will keep you invested in the story, underlying romance between Casey & Travis will keep your heart pumping, and a mystery to solve will keep you guessing. It seems Casey's story she is writing has triggered something the killer doesn't want out. Danger lurks at every turn, nowhere is safe and it has them trying to figure out who is friend and who is foe. These two have a history together and it sizzles just under the surface. Can they get past the hurt to start over, or will it end with Travis leaving again? Then there's the faith element I so love to read. The author seamlessly weaves it throughout the story to make it feel a natural part. There were many twists and turns to keep me on my toes and unanswered questions to keep me turning pages to find out the answers. Riveting suspense, elements of faith, threads of romance and heart-stopping scenes make for a thrill ride with this one! * I received a complimentary copy from the author. I was under no obligation to post a review & all opinions expressed here are my own. *

I'll admit it: I've been a fan of Jodie Bailey's books from the beginning. This book is no different from her others: there's fast-paced suspense, well-developed characters, and hope in the face of fear. What more could you want? I couldn't help but root for Travis and Casey throughout the story. What I couldn't figure out is were the bad guys after Travis or Casey? That's part of what made this story so much fun to read till the end. And that end came way too soon! I would've loved to keep reading about these characters well beyond the confines of this story. But, I know I'll have her future books to look forward to! You should read this one if you want a good story and a new author to follow! I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
