Review: Stolen Secrets by Sherri Shackelford

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


When a software engineer’s identity is stolen, the security breach leads to a deadly game of cat and mouse in this inspirational romantic suspense novel.

Someone has been impersonating software engineer Lucy Sutton to steal classified technology secrets. Now it’s up to Lucy to figure out who. Though she prays for guidance, the only thing she knows for sure is that anyone could be the enemy.

National Security Agent Jordan Harris is the only person she trusts to help her set a trap. But with an unknown enemy watching Lucy’s every move—and threatening her life—capturing the culprit becomes an even deadlier task than they expected.

My Review

Reading this book felt like watching a TV episode with spies and secret agents. Not quite long enough for a full movie, but resolved in about an hour ;) It's no wonder I liked it since two of my favorite shows are The Mentalist and Burn Notice. The element that made this book different is the theme of faith as Lucy and Jordan work together to solve the mystery. The reason Lucy trusts Jordan is that he was the best friend and coworker of her fiance who was killed in an explosion. Jordan struggles with survivor's guilt, especially when he develops deeper feelings for Lucy. There is romantic tension and plenty of suspense to keep the pace of the book moving forward to the climax and resolution.
