2010 Christy Award winner! 2010 Inspirational Readers Choice Award winner!Paige Rogers is a former CIA agent who lost all she treasured seven years ago when her entire team was killed in a covert mission. She blames their leader--Daniel Keary--whom Paige believes betrayed them. Disillusioned and afraid for her life, she disappeared and started a new life as a small-town librarian. But when Keary announces his candidacy for governor of her state, he comes after Paige to ensure that she won't ruin his bid for office. He threatens everything she holds dear, and Paige must choose between the life of hiding that has become her refuge . . . Or risking everything in one last, desperate attempt to right old wrongs.
The story's heroine, Paige Rogers, is an ex-CIA operative, who has gone into hiding in a small town in Oklahoma. To protect her family and loved ones, she has even faked her
As the town's librarian, she thinks she has the perfect cover, until her former boss, Daniel Keary, finds her and threatens her if she doesn't cooperate with him. To make matters worse, he's on track to become the next governor of Oklahoma.
The hero of the story is Miles Laird, the high school football coach. He doesn't hide his interest in Paige, but she keeps him at a distance because of her hidden past and threatening future. Dangerous circumstances bring them together in a breathless race to save the life of a child.
This wonderful story is one you won't want to miss. Here a few things I particularly enjoyed about Breach of Trust:
~Believable Characters - The author made a pistol-packing librarian seem like she lived next door. Paige Davis is realistically portrayed as both a professional secret agent and a small-town bookworm. Miles Laird is a godly man who cares about Paige and his students, and will do what is necessary to protect them all. The character of Daniel Keary is extremely well-drawn, and the reader is actually pulled inside his thoughts by a point-of-view technique (see the next point).
~POV Technique - DiAnn Mills made a brilliant move by writing most of the story in traditional third-person, but using first-person for the character of Daniel Keary. This technique lets us inside the twisted mind of the antagonist. Fascinating!
~Plot Twists Galore! - The making of a great suspense read is found in plot points that the reader doesn't expect. Mills pulls this off with superb mastery.
If you're on the lookout for the unexpected, the dangerous, and the suspenseful, don't miss out on reading Breach of Trust by DiAnn Mills!
The characters are believable, the plot is fast paced, and the ending ties up neatly. There's plenty of suspense
However, I find fault when Ty Dalton, a man with only one redeeming quality--that of pride in his son--does not bother to go to the hospital to visit that injured son. That move is out of character for Ty, making his character flatter than necessary.
Written in third person narrative, the reader easily follows the thought process of each character. To heighten the drama, antagonist chapters are written in first person narrative and printed with a different font. Even though this is book one in a series, it is a stand-alone novel. I say, well done! Discussion questions are included.
