ISBN:  978-0373446773
Genre: Romantic Suspense


When a woman drags Blake Harrison out of his wrecked car, he knows the mysterious stranger has saved his life. But more shocking than the hit-and-run is the news that a crime cartel has infiltrated his factory.

There's a fortune to be made by tampering with the factory's products…but only if Blake is out of the way. Undercover FBI agent Heidi Zimmerman has two goals—catch the criminals in the act, and keep Blake alive. Falling for the single dad and his adorable daughter isn't in the plan.

But everything changes when an abduction leaves Heidi face-to-face with a killer, revealing the danger that's been hiding in plain sight all along…

COVERT JUSTICE is Ms. Blackburn’s debut Love Inspired Suspense. I enjoyed reading COVERT JUSTICE and it held  my interest all the way through. There aren’t many LIS books where the heroine is an FBI agent and the hero is the one trying to survive. I also liked how the attack was more subtle…using chemicals to wreck havoc.

The apparent villain is known, but not everything is as it seems. It did keep me guessing how things would end. I was a bit confused how Blake did know the villain though—I missed that connection somewhere. Heidi was definitely brave, but she struggled with real issues most of us would struggle with in her situation.

If you like romantic suspense, give COVERT JUSTICE a try. It is one of the better ones I’ve read.

4.5 stars. Available in ebook and paperback. 224 pages.
