Hidden (Jacobs Family Series) by Vannetta Chapman - Contemporary Romantic Suspense (Review & Giveaway)

Favorite author, Vannetta Chapman, has now dipped her pen in the inkwell of contemporary fiction. Leaving Amish buggies behind in a cloud of New Mexico dust, she has woven a tale that moves with fascinating speed and intrigue in the dangerous world of Homeland Security.

A deranged man who has brooded for decades over a perceived wrong done his family when he was a teen has created a target that has eluded the team of professionals who secure our land. Dana is the female protagonist and is supervisor of a team of 30 Homeland Security personnel. Newcomer to the team, Ben Marshall, is an army veteran trained and experienced in explosives. Those talents and his experience become invaluable in the hunt for this desperado.

Got to factor in a teenage boy who has gotten in deeper with evil than he ever thought possible and all in the hopes he could help his Mom and two younger brothers. (The youngest brother is a real charmer that will capture the reader’s heart!)

The pace of Hidden is constant and fast. The dialogue and word pictures enrich the story and again reveal the talents that Vannetta Chapman brings to her writing.

This time Chapman has chosen to self-publish, but I foresee publishers clamoring for rights to publish subsequent books along this line.
