Two DEA agents.
One undercover mission.
Lives changed forever.
The DEA sends two of its best agents, Kara Nelson and Jeff Clark, to Central Oregon, to shut down a major drug ring. Kara and Jeff usually work alone, but Operation Trail Ride throws them undercover together in a way neither of them expected.
A notorious Miami drug lord wants Kara dead. Can these agents pull off the greatest acting job of their lives—and manage the sparks flying between them?
Or will they die trying?
Edge of Truth is the first book in the Law Enforcement Heroes series. A romantic suspense series with nail biting suspense and a splash of romance. If you like engaging characters, small-town antics, and page turning suspense, then you’ll love Kimberly Rose Johnson’s Law Enforcement Heroes series.
I would like to thank Kimberly Rose Johnson for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
As I read the methods used in the rescue, I marveled at how the author came up with them! Her detailed descriptions enabled me to envision exactly what was happening. I never would have been able to come up with all the things they did, though! Perhaps it’s good I didn’t go into a career with the FBI. . .
Edge of Truth is filled with intense, action-filled suspense as Jeff and Kara attempt to stop a drug trafficking ring in Central Oregon. To complicate matters, they are undercover investigating Jeff’s stepbrother, Eric! The tension between Eric and his family being so likable and me wanting justice to prevail was great! I kept trying to come up with feasible ways Eric could be innocent despite the evidence that appeared to be mounting.
Filled with a rich cast of characters, this first book of the Law Enforcement Heroes series kept me guessing with its many twists and turns. The budding romance between Kara and Jeff was believable. The fact that neither felt it appropriate to fall in love with their partner complicated matters in a delightful way.
The spiritual battle waged in Kara’s heart was one seeking to understand how a good God could allow her to be harmed if He really loved her. She was also very angry at the evil things the drug lord had done; the lives harmed. She truly wanted revenge. Finding the truth in all this was a genuine struggle for her.
Lovers of suspenseful fiction with a touch of romance will enjoy Edge of Truth!
