Lights Out (The SNAP Agency #1) by Natalie Walters | Romantic Suspense Review

Lights Out
The SNAP Agency #1

Romantic Suspense

CIA analyst Brynn Taylor developed a new program to combat terrorism, and she invited members of foreign intelligence agencies to America to foster cooperation between countries. Now one of them, Egyptian spy Remon Riad, is missing.

Jack Hudson has been working for the Strategic Neutralization and Protection Agency for almost nine years and takes the lead in hunting down the missing spy. But he isn't at all pleased to find out Brynn is involved. It's hard to trust a woman who's already betrayed you.

Every lead they follow draws them dangerously deeper into an international plot. Kidnapping, murder, explosions, poisoning--the terrorists will do anything to accomplish their goal of causing a digital blackout that will blind a strategic US military communications center and throw the world into chaos.

Can Brynn surrender control to a man who doesn't trust her? And can Jack ever get over what she did to him? The fate of the world--and their hearts--hangs in the balance.

My Notes

After finishing up October 31st by Blackbird Designs I had leftover fabric and threads so I decided to whip up this beauty. The called for fabric is 32 ct. American Chestnut by R&R Reproductions and the thread is GA Dark Chocolate. But as I said I had leftovers so I used that instead.

Barb includes an alphabet to personalize the piece so I took advantage of that and used my initials instead of hers.

I finished it in the same way that I finished Spell of the Moon by Blackbird Designs. I used leftover fabric for the backing and some mystery yarn for the trim that I just whip stitched on. I'm very happy with how it turned out.



 

Deadly Target (Rocky Mountain Courage #2) by Elizabeth Goddard | Romantic Suspense Review

Deadly Target
Rocky Mountain Courage #2

Romantic Suspense

This cold case has suddenly warmed up.
She only hopes they won't get burned.


Criminal psychologist Erin Larson's dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her life in a boating accident and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job to care for her mother in Montana. At least there Erin is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.

Nathan Campbell's father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin's help to solve the case. She's certainly good at what she does. The only problem? She's his ex.

As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted--and the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.
