This is a very, very good book. The book deserves 5 stars but I am just tired of this first book of the series being free, then having to pay so much for each sequel. By the time you pay at least $4.99 for each sequel, you have a small fortune invested in the series. I loved this book, great story, no profanity, no sex, it kept my attention all the way through, it is a very well written book. But as much as I would love to continue reading this storyline, I have drawn the line at paying at least $4.99 for about 250 pages for each sequel.

Do you like suspense novels? Clean romance? Then this is the book for you. This is my first time reading anything by Lisa Harris and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to read, and enjoy. From the very beginning of the book, I was hooked, and until the suspect was revealed, I was clueless.  Kudos to Ms. Harris. I look forward to more titles from her in the future.

The heroine comes across as whiney and just a bit preachy...otherwise a good story

Fatal Exchange is Book 2 in the Southern Crime series. It can definitely be read alone but is much better understood and appreciated if read as a series in order. This book deals with a school teacher who comes from a family of policeman. She has a student who is having family problems and has been coming to talk to her about them. The book deals with kidnapping, hostages, faith and trust. This book contains mystery, suspense, and romance. It deals with the life of being a teacher and law-enforcement agent in today's world. I can't wait to read the next in the series.I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

An incredible crime story! Avery North is a wonderful character. She has a huge conflict going on inside trying to balance her job as a police detective and her family commitments. This whole conflict is very well presented as she works her way through leading the team trying to solve the murders of 2 Jane Does. Along with this inner conflict she is dealing with personal heartache from losses in the past that keep coming to her mind as the case progresses. She is a very realistic character that has been developed with incredible thought to detail. She is surrounded by a number of other well written characters both in her family and on her team. I really enjoyed getting to know each of them. I hope that I learn more about them in future books in this series. The plot leaves nothing to be desired. It is very intricately woven and proceeds to build throughout the novel. It is very nicely interspersed with sections that work to develop the characters and their relationships. This novel has a very nice balance between the two. I was kept guessing throughout the story as to exactly how the murders were committed and how they tied in with other criminal activity that was going on.

I had already read Lisa Harris’ book, Fatal Exchange, in her Southern Crime series, and loved it, so when this book became available, I jumped at the chance to read it and was not disappointed! Once again, I enjoyed Ms. Harris’ method of weaving several plots together to draw the reader into the lives of her characters. Avery North, a homicide detective, comes from a long line of family police officers. Her father is retired, but both her husband and brother have been killed in the line of duty. This makes Avery a determined “cop” seeking to put the “bad guys away”. In this story, she joins forces with the handsome medical examiner, Jackson Bryant, to solve the deaths of two Jane Does. They soon find themselves in the dangerous, criminal world of human trafficking. This novel is filled with intrigue, tragedy, bone-chilling suspense, and a good dose of romance. Having worked with several police departments for many years, I was amazed at the great amount of research that went into the writing of this story. I highly recommend this book to both male and female readers. There’s something there for everyone. I received this free book from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

Complex Characters with story that will keep you guessing Unlike a simple romance, the characters in Dangerous Passage are not young and flighty. Widowed, with a teenage daughter, Detective North deals with her grief, teen angst, and a new relationship. These relationships make the story more complex and interesting, then the murder mystery becomes more than a simple murder mystery. The suspense level is low, but the mystery complexity is high enough to make up for it. The focus of the book is on a crime that is growing across the world, human trafficking. This book has a strong Christian aspect.  I recommend this book to lovers of good clean police mysteries, with a nice romance along side.

Dangerous Passage deals with the horrendous activity of human trafficking. I love that it is set here in the U.S. because it is a very real problem that many still think is only abroad. The book grabbed me from the beginning and I only put it down at night when I was too tired to read any longer. Lisa Harris does a great job of describing the characters and what they are going through. It is an easy read, a little light on suspense once you know what the book is dealing with, but overall a great read

DANGEROUS PASSAGE by Lisa Harris book 1 " Southern Crimes " Avery looks at the root cause the motivation behind the killings.Jackson, wants a third date, someone like her to come home to. To feel again wasn't easy for Avery and the risk was even harder, but she did want to explore. The case, a second Asian girl with a tattoo, constant dead ends. The rich neighbor were they using illegal immigrants. A good plot that catches from the first when a young girl is murder. Good detailed of what they were doing The love interest with Avery and Jackson, as well as the home situation all added to a good story. All of Lisa Harris books are good, readers will enjoy this series.

What is this? A book for a Psychology class? It does ontain some Christian teachings - although, forgiveness as Christ taught is based upon a decision, not feelings. The book was very repetitive in introspections, words and actions. That became tedious at times. Also, the relationship with Mason suddenly changed at the end with no explanation. The book is worth reading. We really do need to do something about slavery. There are groups in the US that are working on it

Tangled plots make this a good mystery. While it was a bit slow at times, the character development was good, and the character interactions well done. Harris usually tells a good story, and this book did not disappoint. The whodoneit part was pretty much resolved about half way in, but I liked the work the police were required to do in order for them to figure it out, and round up the bad guys. I thought the heroic ending was a little too easy. I would have preferred a little more action. All in all, a solid read, and left me ready for the next installment in the series to see how the unresolved side plots might be worked out.
