About the Book
Nikki Wright is desperate to help her brother, Bobby, who hasn’t been the same since escaping from a detainment camp run by terrorists in Colombia. Rumor has it that he betrayed his navy brothers and conspired with those who held him hostage, and both the press and the military are hounding him for answers. All Nikki wants is to shield her brother so he has time to recover and heal.
But soon they realize the paparazzi are the least of their worries. When a group of men try to abduct Nikki and her brother, Bobby insists that Kade Wheaton, another former SEAL, can keep them out of harm’s way. But can Nikki trust Kade? After all, the man who broke her heart eight years ago is anything but safe…
Hiding out in a farmhouse on the Chesapeake Bay, Nikki finds her loyalties—and the remnants of her long-held faith—tested as she and Kade put aside their differences to keep Bobby’s increasingly erratic behavior under wraps. But when Bobby disappears, Nikki will have to trust Kade completely if she wants to uncover the truth about a rumored conspiracy. Nikki’s life—and the fate of the nation—depends on it.
From the moment I started this book I did not want to put it down. Each and every page had me sitting on the edge of my seat wondering where the story was going to take me next. Disillusioned is full of suspense, twist and turns, nail-biting scenes, adventure and even a little love. Having not read a book by Christy before I was unsure of what to expect. It takes a lot of hard work from the author to get me to really enjoy a thriller and Christy certainly grabbed my attention!
I love thrillers that don’t have a predictable ending and I do not feel this one did. In fact, at one point I thought I had it figured out, but different elements came into play drawing me to another direction, only to find out in the end I was right from the beginning. I enjoy finding out the answers as the characters do and I found myself doing just that while reading this. Christy’s writing abilities are outstanding. She is descriptive enough to allow me to imagine the scene, but not so much that I am bored and cannot wait to turn the page. She kept the storyline moving at just the right pace which kept me on my toes and never losing interest.
I loved Nikki’s character. She was so protective of her brother, and unwilling to let any leads they found make her change her stance on his innocence. I feel if I was in that position I would feel the same. She was a strong woman, although away from her faith. I appreciated Christy’s willingness to include Nikki’s spiritual troubles and growth throughout such a gripping story. I think it give hope to those of us who are enduring a trial in our life that it is never too late to turn back to the Lord. He’s there waiting with open arms.
If you are looking for a good, clean thriller then this book is a must read! Just be prepared to sit and read for long periods of time because you will NOT want to put it down!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review which I have given.
