I’ve read – and liked – Susan May Warren’s books before and I like the Love Inspired Suspense books so I signed up for this book tour right away. Because they sent me three books I added my thoughts after each book description. I liked them. They didn’t stand out as awesome or awful; just good stories.
About The Mercy of Missions series:
Three heroes, all on missions of mercy, who discover that God not only saves us from evil, but from the darkness inside.
Point of No Return (Love Inspired Suspense) An American boy and a warlord’s engaged daughter have disappeared-together-in an Eastern European border country. Only one man can find them in time to prevent an international meltdown-Chet Stryker. But Chet is taken aback when he realizes the boy is the nephew of Mae Lund, Chet’s former flame. When Mae insists on rescuing her relative herself, Chet knows he has to protect her from the enemy on their trail. Yet can he protect himself from falling for Mae again?
My thoughts: not sure what to think. A lot of specific details about the Georgian countryside and more. A woman pilot that was kicked out of the army, a special forces soldier that left the army, and American teenager, the CIA, and a terrorist group. I like the religious references. There is definitely more emphasis on the talking than the action.
Mission: Out of Control (Love Inspired Suspense) Brody “Wick” Wickham is a former Green Beret turned security agent-with a 100 percent mission success rate. No way is his new assignment changing that. Even if it’s protecting a diva American rock star while she’s on tour in Europe. Except Veronica “Vonya” Wagner isn’t just a beautiful celebrity used to having her way-she’s the daughter of a U.S. Senator. And she’s hiding a dangerous secret. When Wick discovers what’s at stake, how far over the line will he go to keep them both alive?
My thoughts: Everything from rock concerts to humanitarian aid, from senators to orphans. It is not a continuation, but about another member of the private security group that we learned about in the first book. The team comes together in this story as well. The faith aspect is not as noticeable in this book. The detail comes in during their tour of Prague. I’m not sure what to make of this heroine, but I enjoyed the book.
Undercover Pursuit (Love Inspired Suspense) The only way to get security agent Luke Dekker to a wedding? An undercover mission as groomsman. He’ll bust the groom, a drug cartel heir, before anyone can say “I do.” Then Luke can escape all this love and romance nonsense-and the too pretty bridesmaid/agent assigned as his “fiancée” for the weekend. Until Luke discovers that sweet, vulnerable Scarlett Hanson isn’t his contact. Isn’t an agent. Isn’t trained for the high-stakes mission now trapping them both. And worse, Luke’s falling for her-which is not part of the assignment.
My thoughts: Once again, it’s another team member, but all the team is together in the end. A good mix of mystery, romance, and even a bit of action. I liked this one! Scarlett is a great heroine that is trying, learning, and growing. I love the ending. It turned out just the way I wanted and was still believable. Which I didn’t think would happen at all as I was reading the story.
