Kariss meets Dr. Amy Garrett, who survived a brutal childhood attack in which the assailant was never found. Now Dr. Garrett wants her story written in a novel. Kariss wishes she could seek the advice of Special Agent Tigo Harris, but she broke off the relationship a few months prior and seeing him again would be too painful. She interviews Amy and conducts her own research, stepping unaware into a viper's pit of danger. Tigo misses Kariss and wants her back, but he understands why she broke off their relationship. Instead, he concentrates on solving a car bombing and bringing the killer to justice. As Kariss's new story attracts an onslaught of danger that she never expected, can Tigo save the woman he loves and find who wants her dead for writing about an unsolved cold-case?

If you would like to read the first chapter of The Survivor, go HERE.

The Survivor is a book that is full of action, at times, brutal and yet, there was a soft side as well.  As you read you can feel the love and tenderness that Kariss has inside, yet, she is tough, and stands up for what she believes in.  God and her family are most definitely at the top of her list, and Tigo, well, he'd like to be up there, and she'd like him there, BUT.....

When Kariss meets Amy, things in her life get a little crazy, dangerous really, I'm not sure that she makes the connection right away though. 

There is plenty of action in this book, and I found myself eager to get to bed so I could read, I have to limit reading to bed time or I'd have my nose in a book all day long!

I did not read the previous book in this series, but it really didn't matter, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from the action to the romance, and straight through to the very last page.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from CFBA
