Book Review and Giveaway: Mistaken Reality

I had Traci Hunter Abramson as our guest author a couple of months ago and I was looking forward to reading her new book, Mistaken Reality. Suspense fans will definitely love this one!

Hadley Baker finds herself in the middle of a bombing, barely escaping with her life. Handsome FBI agent JD Byers manages to save her, but then has to protect her when Hadley realizes that the man she once thought of marrying wasn't who he said he was and her life could be in danger. JD takes her in and together they try to unravel the mystery of Hadley's former boyfriend and the underworld he seemed to be involved in. The story also includes characters from previous Abramson books, though I admit, I was a little confused because I didn't recognize some of them. The story still stands well alone, but I think the reading experience would have been richer for me if I'd known who they were.

Ms. Abramson deftly handles the multiple threads in the story, from Hadley's job as a schoolteacher and the challenges her students face all the way to Kelsey's emotional mission to "Abolstan." There were a lot of characters to keep track of, which can be challenging, but they all kept the action moving with just the right pacing. This book deals with human trafficking and does a believable job in shining a light on an ever-growing problem. Plenty of twists and turns in this exciting story of rescuing souls and healing hearts.

Here's the back copy:

Hadley Baker can't believe her boyfriend finally invited her on a fancy hotel dinner date only to break up with her in public. Even more unbelievable is the moment FBI Agent JD Byers finds her crying in the women's restroom and demands she evacuate. Seconds after JD ushers Hadley outside, an explosion shatters the building. Could her life be any more disastrous?

JD didn't anticipate seeing Hadley, the beautiful schoolteacher, again after he saved her from the hotel attack. But soon after her ex-boyfriend became a lead suspect in the hotel bombing case, the man turned up dead—and now it seems that Hadley herself is a target. Determined to keep her safe, JD shelters Hadley as they join forces to put together the pieces of the perplexing case. When they discover the horrifying truth behind her exboyfriend's nefarious work, Hadley realizes her life is far from the only one being threatened. Countless others are in danger, and she and JD might hold the key to saving them.
