The author blew my mind. I loved the pace of the story, the author's writing style and use of words. It wasn't fast paced that gets you panting but it was steady, pulling you in little by little. I'd definitely read more books by this author. Danni was calm, collected and a successful young woman. I loved how she carried herself through the book, even when things started to fall apart with her fiance and her life she was still calm and seeking ways to make things better. I loved how she didn't allow what happened in her childhood temper with her adulthood. I was glad when she was able to find her way back to God and fellowship with him. My favorite character was her best friend Jaycee. She was a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed immensely reading about the sparks that flew between her and Caleb. Oh my! Caleb had his own issues and was trying to make up for them and a life with Danni wasn't part of the plan until he met and got to know her. Together they brought down some very bad guys and were able to right wrongs. This book deserves more than a 5 star from me. I received a complimentary copy of the book and this is my honest opinion.

Kathy Harris writes an amazing page turner in Deadly Commitment. The story is exciting and kept me at the edge of my seat as I devoured this story in one sitting. There is just the right amount of romance with layers of deceit and deception. The story is written with beautiful character building in the setting of beautiful Nashville. From the start I was gripped into the story by Harris’ gifted storytelling and takes me through a satisfying ending that have me believing in hope especially for those afflicted with issues of drugs and addiction. I highly recommend this book for a fantastic read for fans of the sub-genre romantic suspense, and a fantastic thriller of a read.

“Life had no do-overs. Only course corrections. Mistakes with fatal consequences can’t be taken back. Life lost is gone forever. But life that remains can be redeemed.” 3.5 stars for this first book in the Deadly Secrets series and the first book by Kathy Harris for me. The premise and the way the author approaches the drug world are enlightening. The cruel destructive aftermath of addiction and the hope/grace offered to those struggling for recovery are well-portrayed, personal and realistic. Danni, a driven restaurant manager with childhood insecurities, becomes a target for a drug ring boss and an interest for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation simply by her association with her boyfriend and almost-fiancé Rob. Celeb, an undercover TBI agent with his own past regrets and mistakes, becomes her protector as the issue at hand evolves and becomes bigger than they had imagined. Though well-constructed, the story moved at a slow pace considering it is a romantic suspense and there wasn’t a lot of suspense involved (perhaps I’m quite spoiled and expect non-stop action and suspense in this genre). I unfortunately did not fully connect with the characters though Caleb, with his noble, tender-hearted nature, made for a solid hero. But I’m sure others who enjoy romantic suspense would find this book quite enjoyable. I received a copy of the book from New Hope Publishers via JustRead Publicity Tours and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

Deadly Commitment is the kind of book where you get lost in the story from the first page until the last. Just when you think the characters are going to get out unscathed, Harris tosses another problem, another obstacle in their path. The ending is satisfying, and the relationships between the characters is deep and complex. Highly recommended. Leeann Betts, author of “By the Numbers” cozy mystery series.

There is nothing I enjoy reading more than a romantic suspense novel and this first book of Kathy Harris' new The Deadly Secrets series did not disappoint in the slightest. I was drawn into this story right from the start, and couldn't put it down until the very end. Now, unlike some stories in this genre that keep you on the edge of your seat with nonstop action and unanswered questions, this one was a bit different. There wasn't really much of a whodunnit to figure out, so much as just waiting to see how the story played out. We knew very early on who at least one of the bad guys was. There were certainly some moments of action throughout of course, it just wasn't the back to back moments that we may have come to expect. Though I generally do like a quick paced suspense, I must say it really worked for this story. In many ways it allowed for others aspects of the story to shine through. One of the big topics in this story is illegal drugs. This is such a very real and important topic going on in our world today, one that is all too often glamorized by popular culture. On the flipside, so often those who have struggled with addiction are demonized. This book does a great job of showing those negative effects that drugs can play not just on the addicts, but those around them... but also reminds us that there is hope after them and that's God's grace was stronger than addiction. It was really interesting to see those effects from so many varying points of view. What I really loved in this story was the romance! It was written wonderfully, and I really enjoyed the chemistry between the romantic leads. I could have read more and more between the two of them to be honest. While I admit that I wasn't certain about it at the beginning, the deeper into the story I read, the more I enjoyed it. This is a great introduction to this series, and I personally cannot wait to read more! If you love a good romantic suspense, this is definitely one to check out! ** I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.
