Book Review: The Negotiator

***I apologize for the lack of variety in my posts this week and for not getting any new projects up. My work computer has decided to not let me upload pictures to my blog so it has been hard trying to find time in the evenings to write my posts. I'm hoping that I will get used to this soon and be back to my regularly scheduled programming in no time.***

I'm totally on fire with my book goal this year and I'm almost done with my third book of the year. Pretty impressive don't you think? I mean, we are only on the 18th of the month and I'm almost done my third book! So I figured it was about time I did a small book review for you guys.

The Negotiator by Dee Henderson
"Dave Richman from Danger in the Shadows is back. He is about to meet Kate O’Malley and his life will never be the same. She’s a hostage negotiator. He protects people. He’s about to find out that falling in love with a hostage negotiator is one thing, but keeping her safe is another!" (That is the small summary found on Dee Henderson's website, just to give you a bit of background on the book.)

I really enjoyed this book and devoured it in a few days. I could have gone through it quicker but I still had to work, cook and spend time with Dan. The thing I love about this author and her books is that they cover a lot of things in them, from love stories, family dynamics, murder, suspense and God. This book grabbed my attention and kept me riveted as I learned more about Dave and Kate and got to see their love develop . But it also kept me on my toes as I tried to figure out the mystery behind it and who the guilty party was. The book starts out with just a normal day for Kate as she negotiates a hostage situation and then it escalates to a plane blowing up and someone wanting her dead. Under the stressful situation of trying to figure out who the murderer is, being in a safe house and ghosts from her past coming back to haunt her, a love story unfolds between her and Dave.

There were a few scenes that seemed slightly unrealistic and the conversations just seemed kind of awkward and "fake" but overall the writing is very good. She gets you into the storyline and you almost feel like you are there and a part of the characters' lives. Overall, I loved the the book and would definitely read it again or recommend it to others.
