Deadly Encounter, by Diann Mills, is another excellent novel from this author. It tells the story of a woman, going through her normal routine, who encounters a situation that throws her life into total chaos. Set in Houston, Texas, this book illustrates the fragility of our daily lives and brings to light the types of people that work daily to prevent such occurrences.
Stacy Broussard takes what she expects to be a peaceful ride on her horse one Saturday morning. Instead, she finds a dead body, a dog, and a powerful drone. Stacy, a veterinarian, takes the dog back to her clinic and begins working with the FBI’s Alex LeBlanc to solve the case. In the days that follow, Stacy soon realizes that not only is her life in danger, but also that of Whitt, the boy she is hoping to adopt, and her entire community. The dog she found carries a deadly disease with no cure, and Stacy and her community members are at risk of sickness and death.
I loved this book. It was difficult to put it down. My heart especially went out to Whitt, who was attempting to make the most of his life in spite of his difficult circumstances. I also liked the fact that many of the characters in the story had difficult things happened in their pasts but found a way to move on and succeed in their lives.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
