About the Author

Melissa started writing back in the 7th grade as a way to escape and create new worlds where she was in control. If a book or movie didn’t end like she wanted or thought it should, no problem. She just rewrote it. This made for some interesting conversations with teachers when trying to do those dreaded book reports. Suspense and thrillers are her favorites, but she enjoys writing young adult and children’s books for a change of pace. An element of suspense and mystery drive these stories as well.

Born and raised in Texas, she tends to dream big and believes good conquers all. Her husband and three kids mean the world to her and keep her on her toes. When not writing, she loves spending time with her family, camping, skiing, photography, and painting. For more information about Melissa's upcoming releases, please visit **

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers Favorite Suspense, excitement, romance, edge of the seat reading and mystery, “Target of Betrayal” by Melissa Ohnoutka has it all and so much more. Katherine is still trying to get over the death of her husband Nick and caring for and loving her two small children. Five years have now passed and she meets an old school flame. Katherine and Robert plan a dinner date that will change Katherine’s life forever. There is trouble in the restaurant and Robert disappears. Katherine, her children and their home are suddenly in danger from unknown men who appear to be trying to kill them. Katherine is clueless as to why her involvement with Robert would put her in danger. Marshall David Thomas, an ex-FBI agent, is assigned to the case and it becomes his responsibility to protect the family at all cost. Melissa Ohnoutka has given us strong characters that are good and bad, but we are not always sure which is which. We the readers are kept in suspense until the very end of the book. “Target of Betrayal” is a page-turner that will find you emotionally attached and you will be unable to put the book down until you reach the last page. Melissa is a five star writer who has me anxiously awaiting her next book. In my opinion, “Target of Betrayal” deserves a five star rating and is a must for the romantic suspense thriller reader.

This book kept me guessing at who were the good guys and who were the bad guys the entire story! I turned each page to find a thrilling, or chilling, surprise. Kathleen is a doll and David is that male women all love and want in their lives. What a great thriller, with just the right mix of suspense,romance, and humor!
