Standoff (Book Reviews)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          The biggest thing I can say about Patricia Bradley's book, Standoff, is that from start to finish is that it is suspense-filled. If I had to put it in terms of what professional reviewers, as some authors would say about her work, I'd say it this way: "Patricia Bradley has the skills needed to write relevant, life-changing stories; filled with romance, the love of Christ, and enough suspense to keep you wanting to know more throughout this fast-faced read." Normally, I'd stop there, divulge a bit about the book and maybe talk a little about who Patricia Bradley is. But before I even get to the book at hand, let's go through who Patricia Bradley is.

          In all of the books she has written, she does her best to honor the person and lordship of Jesus Christ. The way she describes herself on her site ptbradley.com says, "I am a Romantic Suspense writer...I'm the proud author of nine novels and two novellas." But why stop there about what she's accomplished writing-wise? She has also won an Inspirational Readers Choice Award for her work. She also does workshops on writing as well, and they include online courses: American Christian Fiction Writers, along with workshops at the Mid-South Christian Writer's Conference in Collerville, TN.

          Her writing, in fact, is so good (in my view) that she has started work on the first in the series of Natchez Trace Park Rangers series. I would be more than glad to review the second book in this series as a result. Luke Fereday is a park ranger working undercover, after having left trying Annapolis for a career in the navy. With the help of John Danvers, Luke infiltrates an organization bent on moving drugs into the region and all points between Mexico to Canada. The two things Luke does his best to do are to stay away from John's daughter, so she can have a better shot at having a love life. But he may have to put his own life on the line to save John Danvers' daughter.

          With that said about with my thoughts on this wonderful book, Patricia Bradley, and what the book is about, I say pick up a copy, read it, and re-read it to your heart's content. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review.
