Review: Missions of Mercy series by Susan May Warren

I have to confess I can be a bit snobby at times.  Harlequin books are one of those things I've been snobby about.  But, they've begun to publish the Love Inspired Christian paperbacks, including Love Inspired Suspense books.  Now here's the real BIG confession.  I actually like the Love Inspired Suspense books.  Okay, it's not "great literature" but it is a fun, safe, romantic, suspenseful fluff book for when I just want a quick escape.  The romance is clean and the suspense keeps me glued to the book without giving me nightmares.  Although it probably isn't good that I was in the final chapter before I realized my husband had gone to bed without me.

Susan May Warren is an accomplished author, whose books I've enjoyed before.  The Missions of Mercy series wasn't a disappointment.  To be honest, given my little confession above, I have to admit they were actually a nice surprise!  I was drawn into each story from page one, and I didn't want to put the book down until I'd read the last page.   Unfortunately, life as a Mom of 8 doesn't let me do that without staying up very, very late ... but I couldn't resist doing so with this series.  A little extra coffee the next day was worth it, so I could read without interruptions and without neglecting my family.

(Disclaimer: These books were offered to me free from Litfuse, in exchange for an honest review.)

About The Missions of Mercy series:

Three heroes, all on missions of mercy, who discover that God not only saves us from evil, but from the darkness inside.

Point of No Return: An American boy and a warlord's engaged daughter have disappeared-together-in an Eastern European border country. Only one man can find them in time to prevent an international meltdown-Chet Stryker. But Chet is taken aback when he realizes the boy is the nephew of Mae Lund, Chet's former flame. When Mae insists on rescuing her relative herself, Chet knows he has to protect her from the enemy on their trail. Yet can he protect himself from falling for Mae again?

Mission: Out of Control: Brody "Wick" Wickham is a former Green Beret turned security agent-with a 100 percent mission success rate. No way is his new assignment changing that. Even if it's protecting a diva American rock star while she's on tour in Europe. Except Veronica "Vonya" Wagner isn't just a beautiful celebrity used to having her way-she's the daughter of a U.S. Senator. And she's hiding a dangerous secret. When Wick discovers what's at stake, how far over the line will he go to keep them both alive?

Undercover Pursuit: The only way to get security agent Luke Dekker to a wedding? An undercover mission as groomsman. He'll bust the groom, a drug cartel heir, before anyone can say "I do." Then Luke can escape all this love and romance nonsense-and the too pretty bridesmaid/agent assigned as his "fiancée" for the weekend. Until Luke discovers that sweet, vulnerable Scarlett Hanson isn't his contact.  Isn't an agent.  Isn't trained for the high-stakes mission now trapping them both. And worse, Luke's falling for her-which is not part of the assignment.

  1. I entered 3 times! I love a mystery, and there's nothing wrong with a "quick read"! Thanks for the review. I'm going to try a few of these!

  2. When I read "Harlequin Books", I cringed at first. (I'm OK now) LOL It's nice to know that they're publishing Christian paperbacks though, and I appreciate the info about the giveaway.


I love to hear from you. Thanks for your comment!
