The Traitor's Pawn by Lisa Harris

My thoughts:  This is an interesting romantic suspense story in that it involves family relationships and hurts inflicted from a father abandoning family to pursue his own interests.

Convoluted emotions are frequently addressed in thoughts and conversations of primary characters, Jack Shannon and Aubrey Grayson, as they work through their own past friendship and how to relate to each other currently. In addition, Aubrey's childhood abandonment creates underlying insecurities.

As agents of law enforcement involved in national security Jack and Aubrey maneuver through these suspense moments and find it highly entangled with Aubrey's father.

The romance is a bit predictable but the suspense is battered back and forth with various endings running through the reader's mind as it races to a conclusion at the end of the book.

A not-to-heavy read that provides a level of entertainment that provides a bit of insight into the workings of torn emotions and faithfulness to one's calling.

About the book: When FBI agent Jack Shannon arrives in Corpus Christi, Texas, he is focused on one thing: find the man who has been selling encrypted government secrets to the Chinese through online birding chat rooms. But when a senator is shot during a hunting trip and the woman he was with is abducted, Jack agrees to join the search--especially when he discovers that the kidnapping victim is Aubrey Grayson, a woman he was once in love with.

As the search continues, it becomes clear the senator may not have been the intended victim--and Aubrey may be connected to the other case Jack is supposed to be working on. Can Jack untangle the knots before it's too late? And when he learns the truth, will it be too painful to get past?

Join the hunt for the truth--and a traitor--in this tension-laden story of secrets, betrayal, and second chances.
