Holiday on the Run (Love Inspired Suspense)

Title:  Holiday on the Run (SWAT: Top Cops)
Author:  Laura Scott
Pages:  224
Year:  December 2015
Publisher:  Love Inspired Suspense
My rating is 5 stars.
One of the reasons I read these books is because the stories are rich, faith is a component of the book and there definitely is suspense.  Secondly, no two books are the same!  In the novel, we meet Melissa who disappeared shortly after high school graduation because she witnessed a murder.  Her father would never divulge her whereabouts or request she come see him until he is days from dying due to cancer.  Her father wanted to see his daughter one more time along with the grandchild he has never laid eyes on!
When Melissa dares to go to the hospital, her life and the life of her daughter is in constant jeopardy.  Nate who is an off duty officer is entering a mall to purchase Christmas gifts when he spots Melissa someone he knew in high school. Nate calls out to Melissa who begins running.  Nate is attempting to catch up with her until he realizes two other men  are closing in to catch Melissa.
The novel was really high-tension reading from start to finish.  Melissa is constantly on the run and she thinks she can take care of herself and her daughter as she has for five years.  How the plot brings the high school sweethearts together after ten years has passed was spell-binding.  
I hope you enjoy the surprise suspects and those who should have been arrested years ago as much as I did.  As the past comes into the present for both of the two main characters, Melissa and Nate, so too does the danger increase exponentially!

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…
