Guest reviewer:  Tim Johnson
The story starts out with this girl and her father driving home from grocery shopping. The girl is 16-year-old Glenna Rider.  She and her brother Gregg and their family have adopted an old dog named Blaze.  They soon discover that he’s a retired search dog for Homeland Security; trained to smell out money being smuggled for drug cartels and other crime or terrorist organizations. When Blaze sniffs out illegal money in a warehouse, the Rider kids alert authorities, who then arrest the criminals.  As the trial is being scheduled, the Rider family visits Florida to spend Christmas with Glenna and Gregg’s grandparents.  While they are there, a friend named Mason develops a type of cancer called leukemia and needs a bone transplant at a cost of $200,000.  In order to raise the money, Glenna, Gregg, and Blaze work together to catch criminals to receive rewards and fund Mason’s surgery.  Many interesting things happen during their adventures such as meeting a homeless girl named Krystal whose mother is suspected of being kidnapped and sold off to Columbians.  Glenna and the Rider family are praying for God to help Mason and Krystal. Will God answer their prayers?  Will the Rider kids learn what type of work their father does?
Rating:  4 out of 5 stars.
Main characters:  Glenna Rider, 16-year-old girl learning how to drive.  She gets anxious unless Blaze is with her.  She likes having adventures and has great faith in God, always praying to Him and thanking Him for His blessings.
Gregg Rider, 13-year-old boy whose hobby is to look for valuable metal objects with a metal detector he named Klondike.  Like his sister, he likes having adventures. He runs like crazy when really mean people threaten him.  He believes in God, but doesn’t pray to Him much.
Julia Rider, mother of Glenna and Gregg.  She worries a lot about her kids and husband getting into dangerous situations, but she loves them very much.
Bo Rider, father of Glenna and Gregg Rider and husband to Julia Rider.  He’s away from his family a lot in the story, working a mysterious job that takes him to places far from home.  His kids suspect he is a spy working for the government.
Sheryl and “Buck”, aka Grandma and Grandpa, are grandparents to Glenna and Gregg and mother and father to Julia.  They love their family very much and like to spend a lot of time with them.
Mason Lockridge, the friend who develops leukemia.  He’s a football player and surfs a lot on the internet.
Eva Montanna, ICE agent and mother of two kids, Kaley and Andy. She is a friend to the Riders and arrests criminals printing illegal money.
Krystal, homeless child abandoned by her mother who is addicted to cocaine and crack (illegal drugs).  She’s brought in to live with the Riders temporarily, and she helps them catch the criminals she believes are responsible for selling her mother to Columbians and selling drugs.
The authors:
Diane and David Munson are a married, Ex-Fed team who have written several adult, family, and suspense thriller books that are pretty much based on the type of work that they did when they were federal agents.  David worked for the NCIS and DEA, and Diane worked as an attorney and Federal prosecutor as well as serving in the U. S. Department of Justice.  They currently travel a lot and write stories as well as thank God for the many blessings of family and friends He has given them.
I liked the story and highly recommend it because it shows what people do when working for Federal agencies such as the FBI to protect our country and its citizens.  I liked the story also because it shows, in my opinion, what God can do for Federal agents like the authors who put great faith in Him like when they ask Him to bring them home to their families and keep their country safe.  Of course, not everyone comes home like that; many have paid the ultimate price for our country’s freedom.  Because of that, I’m proud of them and I thank God for giving them the courage and dedication to make such sacrifices for our country and their loved ones.  My thanks also goes to the operatives currently working for the CIA, FBI, DEA, and all other crime and terrorist-fighting organizations.  Amen and may God keep you safe.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
