The Chase - A Book Review and GIVEAWAY!

About The Book:


Based on a real-life cold case, The Chase, by bestselling author DiAnn Mills, teams novelist and former news-anchor Kariss Walker with FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris as they reopen an unsolved crime case and discover more than they bargained for. Will Kariss’s pursuit of her dream as a suspense writer come at a deadly cost? Join in The Chase and find out.


To the FBI it’s a cold case. To Kariss Walker it’s a hot idea that could either reshape or ruin her writing career. And it’s a burning mission to revisit an event she can never forget. Five years ago, an unidentified little girl was found starved to death in the woods behind a Houston apartment complex. A TV news anchor at the time, Kariss reported on the terrifying case. Today, as a New York Times bestselling author, Kariss intends to turn the unsolved mystery into a suspense novel. Enlisting the help of FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris, Kariss succeeds in getting the case reopened. But the search for the dead girl’s missing mother yields a discovery that plunges the partners into a witch’s brew of danger. The old crime lives on in more ways than either of them could ever imagine. Will Kariss’s pursuit of her dream as a writer carry a deadly price tag? Drawing from a real-life cold case, bestselling novelist DiAnn Mills presents a taut collage of suspense, faith, and romance in The Chase.

My Review:


One of my favorite genres of literature to read is crime/mystery/suspense, and I have been very impressed with the variety of novels coming out in recent years from Christian authors in this genre. Recently, I had the opportunity to review The Chase, by DiAnn Mills, and I absolutely loved it. 


The novel is full of twists, turns, suspense, romance, fantastic writing, and amazing characters. With each page read, I could not wait to see what would happen next and was left on the edge of my seat! I read late into the night to finish this one! I have not read any other books from Mills, but you can be sure that I will be adding her to my TBR list!

 Mills' writing style reminds of some of my favorite Christian Crime writers like Irene Hannon, Dee Henderson and Kathy Herman. And that is a great bunch of writers to be compared to!

If you enjoy Christian crime/suspense novels, I highly recommend The Chase, and give it a huge thumbs up.
