When I went to create this review, I came across Diann Mills’ other titles. I’ve read nearly everything, and loved every read. She’s award winning and a master at romantic suspense. The Chase is another notch on her belt.
The writer researching the FBI premise has been done before, and especially with romance, can seem forced. This isn’t the case in The Chase. Like a good relationship Mills weaves a solid foundation around the case, based on true events, and the characters and their friendship are a slow build at the right pace.
The sub plot with Kariss and her sister adds to the suspense. Is an ex-husband also a criminal? I finished this in one read so I could find out.
Diann Mills deserves more recognition than she receives, she’s one of the quiet winners of her genre who keeps typing out page turners.
To the FBI it’s a cold case. To Kariss Walker it’s a hot idea that could either reshape or ruin her writing career. And it’s a burning mission to revisit an event she can never forget. Five years ago, an unidentified little girl was found starved to death in the woods behind a Houston apartment complex. A TV news anchor at the time, Kariss reported on the terrifying case. Today, as a New York Times bestselling author, Kariss intends to turn the unsolved mystery into a suspense novel. Enlisting the help of FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris, Kariss succeeds in getting the case reopened. But the search for the dead girl’s missing mother yields a discovery that plunges the the partners into a witch’s brew of danger. The old crime lives on in more ways than either of them could ever imagine. Will Kariss’s pursuit of her dream as a writer carry a deadly price tag? Drawing from a real-life cold case, bestselling novelist DiAnn Mills presents a taut collage of suspense, faith, and romance in this Zondervan ebook, The Chase.
I received this book, softcover, from the Amazon Vine program.
