I love how this author shows the progressive steps of Christianity with the story she brings of those who know the Savior and those who don't.

Airport Ranger volunteer Stacy Broussard expected a peaceful Saturday morning ride around the perimeter of Houston's airport. What she encounters instead is a brutal homicide and a baffling mystery. Next to the body is an injured dog, the dead man's motorcycle, and a drone armed with a laser capable of taking down a 747. Though FBI Special Agent Alex LeBlanc sees a clear-cut case of terrorism, his past has taught him to be suspicious of everyone, even witnesses. Even bleeding-heart veterinarians like Stacy.

When Deputy Sheriff Royce McCall responds to a break-in at his family's cabin, he doesn't expect the intruder to be beautiful Sophie Conway - in her nightgown! The last time he saw her, she wasn't wearing much else, although the details of their New Year's Eve encounter are sketchy at best. Then she admits that not only has she become a killer's target, but she also lied about carrying Royce's baby in order to escape an arranged marriage. With too many unanswered questions surrounding this woman he barely knows, Royce still vows to protect Sophie when the bullets start flying.

What would have made Standoff at Mustang Ridge better?

If the same thing did not happen over again and again. the same wording and the same sequence of events.are repeated through out the book and in other books I have tried. It is like a form for the book is provided and the writer just changes a few word every few sentences. There are different plots but character reactions are the same and there is always something said or happening that they did not want to hear. The same phrase is used repeatedly through out all the books that I sampled

Has Standoff at Mustang Ridge turned you off from other books in this genre?

from this Author

How could the performance have been better?

try and have more original action and content

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Sorry no

Any additional comments?

I will never purchase material from this Author
