Targeted by Becky Avella

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Targeted. This is the first book I have read by Becky but I really liked it. I'm sure I'll be reading a lot more of her work. The story was well written, full of action, and fast paced. Her characters were regular flawed people just trying to survive until God's plan took over. I like that!

Seattle Police K-9 officer Rick Powell and his partner, Axle are chasing a serial killer. When they break into the killer's house they find two boards one with his victims pictures, three of whom they hadn't known about. What shattered Rick's heart was the pictures on the other board, a picture of his next victim, a woman he recognized and knew well. He tried to get a hold of her and then rushed to the school. Horrified when the man was in the room with her.

Stephanie O`Brien is a teacher at the Lincoln Elementary School. She had won a grant and received new computers and equipment for her fifth grade class. One Saturday, while Stephanie reviews her lesson plan and dreams of the time she can return to Africa as a missionary.  There is a noise as someone unlocked her class room door, her IT guy has shown up. He points to the new boxes in the corner full of more equipment. As she moved around the table she notices Rick standing outside her window with a gun pointing at her, no not her.

These two take the journey of a lifetime as they try to stay on step ahead of the killer. God has a plan and leads them in the way they should go. A great story that you don't want to miss.
