Olivia (Cold Case Murder Mystery #4) by Brooke Ramsey
ABOUT THE BOOK
Days missing: 1,345 days.
Anna has spent the last three years infiltrating the gang of Diaz Smith–the man responsible for her sister’s disappearance. She’s close to getting the answers she has sacrificed so much for when a newly recruited FBI agent threatens to blow her cover.
Jackson joined the FBI’s narcotics team so that he could put people like Diaz Smith behind bars. When a raid ends with a pistol pointed at his chest, Jackson realizes that the fierce beauty holding the weapon will either be the key to his success or his demise.
Refusing to fail, he devises a plan to recruit Anna as his informant while ensuring she doesn’t end up dead at the hands of Diaz. Everything is going to plan but Jackson didn’t foresee one problem: falling in love with his informant.
The stakes are high and Diaz is watching Anna’s every move. One wrong step could end with another body stuffed in a barrel.
This book is touted as a Christan romance, but I’ve never read one like it. Ms. Ramsey’s character development and riveting suspense is dramatic and gripping at the same time. The Christian theme is minuscule compared to the action in this book.
Anna is out to avenge her missing sister, Olivia. She has sacrificed everything for the last three years to find her sister by infiltrating Diaz Smith’s circle and pretending to be his girlfriend. However, Jackson the head FBI agent of the narcotics team is about to break this case wide open and he wants to use her to bring down Diaz. Should she trust him or will he throw her under the bus?
Anna is a true badass. She’s extremely smart and focused, savvy with a gun, and she will not stop her mission to destroy Diaz until justice is served. She’s come this far alone, and she’ll finish this alone until Jackson with his self-confidence and faith in God convinces her to partner with him and defeat Diaz’s organization. Jackson also has a personal interest in this assignment because Diaz supplied drugs to his dead brother. He is professional, motivated, has good instincts, and believes he can trust Anna. She has had several opportunities to rat him out to Diaz, but she has kept quiet.
The attraction is subtle between these two as they focus their efforts on keeping alive and getting their target. As the action ramps up more secrets are revealed in Diaz’s operation, and Anna’s life is in jeopardy. It’s just a matter of time before she is exposed and Jackson’s promise to help her may not be in time. I loved the buildup to the finale which is very exciting.
If you love captivating characters and compelling action and adventure, give this book a try. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series.
Thank you to Ms. Ramsey for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
