Book Summary

Brilliant, electronic warfare engineer, Drina Gallagher is riddled by guilt and determined to create a weapon to protect American soldiers. Caleb Norwood is a CIA agent working undercover. For two years he’s been trying to infiltrate a highly organized group selling secret plans on the black market. He’s scheduled to connect with operatives at a wind farm in the middle of the desert where he’ll be taken by helicopter to meet with the leader. He arrives at the meeting place only to discover the men have kidnapped Drina and plan to kill her. Cal must make an instant choice, keep his cover and stop the organization or save Drina. Cal chooses Drina. They race across the Mojave Desert to escape the killers and Drina discovers that Cal is a man of action grounded in unbreakable faith. His personal walk gives Drina the confidence she needs to confront the guilt of her past. Can He possibly forgive her and allow her and Cal to escape their pursuers? Or will all her hopes and dreams die in the desert?

Book Review by Bree Herron

Fast paced, unique suspense and a hunk to save the day. All in a day of reading this wonderful book. It was a page turner that I didn’t put down!


Drina and Cal are our duo for this love inspired suspense story. Drina is fierce and I mean this in she is smart, strong and just wonderful. I really loved her brilliance ( I could never do her job) she has a mind and I really love that the author showed that. Cal is tough, and hidden (but because of his job). Together these two are a force.

Enjoyable Moments

Favorite part, that will be tough with this book. I really loved when Cal and Drina met. First encounters are tough to sometimes write but I felt the author did a great job with these two. I also love when the climax of the suspense hits!


Overall, this book gives readers a reason to watch for this author. It was tidy in the details, great in the characters and the suspense is some of the best I have read. I love that we had smart characters, faith and a unique area to have it all take place. I got to do plenty day tripping in my mind through this book, and I didn’t want it  to end.

    I love strong female characters because they break the stereotypical mold of damsel in distress who can’t help themselves. 🙂 Not that there is anything wrong with damsel in distress, but let’s make them with a little more backbone while they are waiting for the hero to rescue them! I also love Love Inspired Suspense and with all the reviews I’ve read for this one have been very complimentary! I haven’t met one I haven’t enjoyed yet. Thank you for the review, interview and giveaway chance!

  2. Becky Smith

    I enjoy strong females characters when their faith & trust is in the Lord, when He is the source of their strength and they realize that. I love that this review said this book “was tidy in the details, great in the characters and the suspense is some of the best…” Sounds like a great book!

  3. Amy

    We need more stories like this, especially for thisbyounger generation. Strong characters whose strength comes from the Lord.

  4. Perrianne Askew

    I think it takes a strong female character to hold up a suspense novel. A shrinking violet would make a poor lead in suspense. Thank you formthe review & giveaway opportunity.

  5. Kay Garrett

    A strong woman character doesn’t have to be domineering but she won’t stand being walked over either. I like a woman (as with a man) that will stand up for what’s right or to right an injustice, fight for what they think is worth fighting over and one that is willing to help the underdog. Call it spunk if you will but it adds to a story – one that I love to read.

    Thanks for the information on “Mojave Rescue” and your great review which reaffirms to be that this is bound to be a wonderful book to read.

    I like strong female characters that use both their brain and physical strength.

  7. Paula Shreckhise

    I like strong female characters because a woman should be complete in herself first and then she can be a strong partner. Everyone needs to learn to be independent. Then you can CHOOSE to be a partner, to compliment your mate.

  8. JoAn V.

    I like that a female lead character can be smart as well as strong and committed to doing the right thing even when it’s difficult. The woman doesn’t have to “kick butt” but I admire them when they can at least defend themselves.

    Thanks for the information on Mojave Rescue. Best wishes as it reaches a broad audience.
