Christmas on the Run (Mission Rescue)


Title:  Christmas on the Run (Mission Rescue)

Author:  Shirlee McCoy

Pages:  217

Year:  2017

Publisher:  Love Inspired Suspense

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

Carly Kelley is on the run…literally.  She is begin chased by a man while out on her morning jog.  She has kept to her normal routine recently, even though she has felt like she is being watched.  Just as her text warned, she has not talked to the police or told anyone about the threats issued to her, her young son and her best friend via text.  She is a restorer and designer of antique jewelry and her skills are in demand for an unknown criminal to be put to illegal use.  Carly is desperate for help and discovers her deceased husband’s brother lives nearby.  She decides to risk contacting him for help.

Dallas Morgan has watched the female jogger who has run by his house for the last few mornings and is curious why she comes up to his porch, but doesn’t knock.  He soon finds out and it is a lot more than he could imagine.  He quickly realizes Carly needs his help as well as the nephew he has never met.  Carly is a strong, attractive and smart woman who Dallas is drawn to immediately, even while still grieving a loss from the past.  Dallas and Carly work together to protect her son, who seems to be the target.  As they get to know each other, the attraction is obviously mutual.  They each have pasts that make them leery of getting involved in a relationship, but they rely on God to guide them.

These short books are gems to read in one sitting and are filled with lots of action, suspense and intrigue.  The books I have read contain a faith message that is consistent and upbeat.  This story will grab readers from page one with a chase scene and keep them captivated until the last page.  The strength of the two lead characters was a draw for me, as well as their active faith despite their terrible childhoods.  Zane was an adorable supporting cast member.  I hope to read more of this author’s books as they are well worth the time spent engrossed in the pages!

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…
