Freefall by Traci Hunter Abramson

Free Fall by Traci Hunter Abramson

“Lieutenant Brent Miller arrived in the Middle East with one objective — get seven hostages out of a hostile country. The plan almost worked. But now he has been left behind — with one of the hostages. It's up to Brent to get Amy Whitmore, an LDS Senator's daughter, across miles of desert to safety. What he doesn't know is that to survive, he needs her as much as she needs him.”*

So, I had mixed feelings about this book. Loads of people really love Traci’s suspense novels so I expected the quality to be a little better. The big peeve with the book came with the romance. It was so predictable, and therefore a little boring to me, and also cliché. I did like other aspects of the book. I really liked how the author showed Amy Whitmore becoming an excellent intelligent officer, and found that part of the book really interesting. While Brent and Amy run around in the desert they find out that a terrorist organization is most likely planning attacks in the D.C. area, and they have to work together to find out when, and where. So, they the instant they get safely out of the desert they set up an intel crew to save the lives of thousands of Americans.

This is the first novel that I read of Traci’s and apparently it is a spin off of books she has written before, because characters kept appearing that obviously had a huge back story that I was supposed to relate to. I got the gist of the backstory and so wasn’t confused, but they were a bit annoying at the beginning. So, when the chips all fall, this book was interesting, and an entertaining read, but not one of my favorites.
