Steeple Hill Books Betrayal on the Border

Former army communications specialist Maddie Jameson may not remember the details of the deadly mission on the Texas-Mexico border, but she knows one thing. She's not responsible for the massive ambush that left only her and investigative journalist Chris Mason alive. Yet with suspicion-and danger-targeting Maddie and Chris, and a killer on their trail, partnering up is the only solution. But as Maddie and Chris get closer to uncovering the truth, they'll have to trust each other to make it through alive.

Betrayal on the Border pulled me in right from the beginning and just didn't let up! This is one action packed book!
Maddie Jerrard and Chris Mason are on the run. They survived an attack a year earlier, but can they survive the next few days as they try to discover who was behind the attack? Maddie must also contend with memory loss from the event. She really does not know who to trust. She longs to trust Chris with all of her heart, but fears that he was behind the betrayal a year earlier.
Betrayal on the Border is full of action, political intrigue and lots of romance. The author did an amazing job creating tension and attraction between Maddie and Chris.
I received a free copy of the book through a contest on Suspense Sisters. I was not required to write a review, but happily do so.

I love when the main character is a strong woman who knows how to handle herself. This is a great mystery story with a hint of Christianity in it. I liked how the author kept the main characters true to their character. You believe the actions they take are really ones they have thought about and would take if they were real people! I liked how the romance developed over the story and thought the story ended well. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a Christian fiction book with mystery and romance. This was a great read!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

A year ago, communications specialist Madeline Jerrard was one of two surviving witnesses of a compromised mission in the Rio Grande. She has no memories of the event, but that hasn't stopped those who want to kill her. Now her temporary cover as apartment janitor Madison Jameson is about to be blown, the other witness is dead, and she is on the run again.
Love Inspired Suspense is a Harlequin imprint, publishing relatively short novels, not known for their deep spiritual themes or writing of outstanding literary merit. Some are good, others struggle to achieve mediocre. The lower word count can make it difficult for authors to properly develop their plots, characters and particularly their spiritual themes. I don’t tend to read a lot of them, but picked this one up because I’ve read other suspense novels by Jill Elizabeth Nelson and really enjoyed them. I’ve also read her non-fiction title about writing with Deep Point of View – so was interested in reading this to see if she practices what she preaches! (She does.)
While the plot of Betrayal on the Border was somewhat predictable (which is par for the course for Love Inspired), the characters were interesting and the writing was excellent. It even manages to get in a subtle dig about the dangers of self-publishing through a vanity press. Better than most.
Thanks to Love Inspired and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
