Headline Murder by Maggie K. Black

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Headline Murder.  Don't you just love Maggie's books? This one (like all of her others) is well written, fast paced, and full of adventure. ( you just can't put it down) She also weaves her faith through her stories like a tapestry, I love that. Her characters are complex and well developed. You will enjoy meeting them. Her work is exceptional.

Reporter Olivia Brant is trying to get a great story to save her job. She goes to the courthouse armed with a camera to watch the end of the trial of a controversial business man. The man is acquitted and a riot breaks out in the courtroom. Olivia sneaks out to the parking garage to try to get an interview. She starts the camera; walks towards him, asks him a question, and sees three faceless men enter the garage. Gunfire breaks out and the car blows up. Olivia runs from the explosion but collapses. Someone picks her up in his arms and rescued her.

Ex-bodyguard Daniel Ash is in the parking garage hoping to talk to his ex-brother-in-law. He is sitting in his truck praying for him when he witnesses an attack on the man and a young woman. Daniel picks Olivia up, scoops up her things, and drives out of the garage. He hopes someone called 911 but he has to get her to the hospital. Daniel is chased through out the streets of town. His back window is shot out and bullets riddle his truck but makes it to the hospital. He explains things to them and then leaves.

Olivia wakes alone but can't forget the man she knows only by Daniel. Two days later Daniel calls to meet her for coffee. She takes a young cameraman with her to meet him. Thus starts a journey of two broken people trying to survive their past and find away out of the terrors that are going on round about them. Both learn they must trust God and each other. God always has a plan for us and it is always much greater than we have imagined. Just turn your life over to Jesus and watch what He will do for you.
