Fatal Exchange by Lisa Harris

About the Book:

Desperate times create desperate people. And desperate people are dangerous . . .

Though Emily Hunt comes from a family of cops, the relatively quiet life of a high school teacher suits her just fine. She's saving up to buy a house, slowly moving forward after her brother's death, and settling into a life she loves. So the last person she wants to spend time with is Mason Taylor.

An undercover cop, Mason is enemy number one as far as her family is concerned. His involvement in the death of Emily's brother is still up in the air, and now he expects her to help him with a case.

Mason has been working with one of her students, Rafael Cerda, whose brother has been kidnapped by a drug cartel. And with time running out to meet their demands, Rafael is getting desperate.

Emily will have to draw on all of her strength to handle what happens next . . .

Fatal Exchange
will draw you into a complex matrix of intertwining lives, unraveling secrets, and unexpected love.

My Thoughts:

Wow.  Talk about a ripped from the headlines kind of story!  "Fatal Exchange" is not for the faint of heart reader...Lisa is tackling some issues that are close to home: gang violence, classroom shootings and hostage situations, just to name a few.

Her writing is crisp and bold, and her choices are daring and never designed to just please the reader.  The intense scenes are perfectly paced, with just the right touch of humor and romance to keep things interesting!

Emily has nerves of steel, and Mason is the ideal law enforcement hero.  Rafael is easy to cheer for, despite what he ends up doing (note to readers: don't try to be a hero when in these situations!), and the conclusion, while not neat and tidy, is completely satisfying.

"Fatal Exchange" is published by Revell Publishing (my thanks to them for my complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review), and is available now!

Happy Reading!
