Faith and fiction is a great way to describe Kimberly Rose Johnson’s stories, whether they are romance, cozy mystery, or suspense. Or, what I have officially dubbed today as “Sweet Suspense” to distinguish it from the kind that is more edge-of-your-seat.
I enjoyed reading more about Frank in Certain Threat. This is his story and it starts with him making a blunder that had quite an interesting result. Frank has been such a solid rock through this series and has the kind of strong faith that overflows into the lives of those around him and helps him to stand firm when things around him appear to be falling apart. And, it was quite funny to see his house. If that wasn’t a true bachelor/workaholic pad, I don’t know what would qualify as one!
Katrina, through her uncertainty and fear, had the opportunity to observe Frank’s faith in action. I love the way it called to her, having her seek to know more about how to have a relationship with God without making it feel preachy.
The story is fast-paced, taking place over a very short period. While the action is not described in detail, there is enough that it is clear what is happening. The unknown person who is after Katrina continues to keep them all on their toes.
Certain Threat is part of the Protection Inc. series. While it could stand alone, reading it that way would leave you wanting to know more about the characters. So, if you haven’t read the others in the series, be sure to read them first.
