    "Dangerous Passage "exposes a fully-realized and frightening world where every layer peeled back reveals more challenges ahead. Romantic suspense fans will be hooked from the start by Lisa Harris's first installment of the new Southern Crimes series.

    My Review:

    I thought this was an okay Christian romantic suspense book. It did not have enough development in the characters or plot. I did not feel involved. It did not feel like a first book in a series but like a second. When the book begins it felt like I was supposed to already know what's going on. Even when Jackson came into the picture it felt like we were missing some details.  It had a lot of potential as far as characters and plot. The faith element was ok. I want to read the next book in the series to see if it gets better. This is my favorite genre. Not recommended unless you want an okay read.
