Crisis Shot (The Line of Duty #1)

Title:  Crisis Shot (The Line of Duty #1)

Author:  Janice Cantore

Pages:  432

Year:  2017

Publisher:  Tyndale

My rating 5 out of 5 stars.

In the first book of a new series for the author, we meet a young policewoman who is a commander working in Long Beach when she becomes involved in a police shooting.  Tess is a second-generation police officer whose father died years prior in the line of duty.  Throughout the novel, what entertained me was reading Tess’s various rules she has collected over the years from her dad’s wisdom and her learning experience.

Now, due to the press and a certain blogger who is out to smear Tess’s reputation, Tess must find a police job elsewhere.  But who would hire someone with all the bad press and think Tess capable of doing a good job?  When Tess relocates reluctantly to what seems like a peaceful and low-key town without problems, quickly morphs into something totally different than Tess expected!

I have read most of Janice’s books over the years and each one is not just entertaining, but also a journey in faith for the characters in law enforcement.  In this story, there is a pastor who is a humble man who even when suffering terrible heartache who is right there ministering to people he knows.  I fell in love with this character as he faces some heart-rending trials, and though he hurts like any other human being he still reaches out.  When others in the town learn of how he is hurting, they come from everywhere to support him in his time of need.  A true picture of people being the hands, heart and feet of the Messiah in action.

I highly recommend if you haven’t read any of Janice’s books that you grab an opportunity to do so and get ready for the next installment in the series coming out probably in 2018!
