Hidden Agenda {Lisa Harris}

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Hidden Agenda by Lisa Harris
Michael Hunt is alive--and on the run. Presumed dead by friends and family, the undercover assignment he's been working for the past eight months has just been blown. With a hit out on his life and corruption inside the Atlanta police department, Michael finds himself hunted by both the cartel and the law. His only hope is the daughter of the man who wants him dead.

This nonstop chase from taut suspense writer Lisa Harris will leave readers breathless as they race to connect the dots before it's too late.

My Thoughts:

This book started a little slow for me. The first few chapters were mostly character development, and at times I got confused between the flashbacks and the actual story.

But then the story really started going and I wasn't able to put this book down until I finished the last page. Once Olivia and Ian had Michael in their company and actually began running, things started unfolding quickly. Every time I thought they were safe, something would happen.

At one point I was sure I had the "link" figured out, but then was actually relieved that I was wrong. As the truth started being revealed about all the characters, the connection between everyone was amazing. The relationships, both old and new, grew throughout this book and I enjoyed seeing how Michael's family interacted with Olivia.

The trust that these characters have in God was so great to watch as well. With every little thing that went wrong, God was ever present and watching over everyone. He kept them all safe when they needed it the most, and they were constantly putting their full trust in Him. Each character was such a testament to what God can do for us if we just trust him and ask for his help.

I did enjoy this book very much. It was an edge-of-your-seat-page-turner, and I loved watching everything unfold. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a little action and suspense.
