Deadly Target - Book Review


Criminal psychologist Erin Larson's dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her own life in a boating accident on Puget Sound and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job as a criminal psychologist to care for her mother in Montana. At least she is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.


Nathan Campbell's father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin's help to solve the case. She's good at what she does. The only problem? She's his ex.


As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted--and that the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.


The race is on for the truth in this gripping and complex tale of suspense, intrigue, and murder from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard.



My Review


This roller coaster ride of twists and turns was absolutely fantastic. The suspense grabbed you from the first chapter and didn't let go until the very end. I did not see all that coming and loved the little bit of second chance romance that was interwoven into the book.


Erin is a criminal psychologist and cold case podcaster and Nathan is a local sheriff's deputy in her home town. From the beginning it is clear they have a past but part of the mystery is what broke them up in the first place.


I love the side characters of Terra and Jack.


This book really doesn't give you a chance to catch your breath before the next twist. If you like a good suspense, I highly recommend this one. I am also a big fan of the way the characters lean into their faith and how that piece is truly important to them. It does not feel forced and is totally organic.


I received an eArc from the publisher through NetGalley and this is my honest review.
