Caller ID is great romantic suspense. The story-line was fast paced and kept me guessing. We find out who is behind the kidnapping fairly early on but I wasn't expecting it to be who it was. Even though we know who the bad guy is there are still lots of twists and turns in the story right up until the end.

Caller ID stands alone but one of the main characters Jason Edwards was in Rachelle's first book Wrong Number. I enjoyed Caller ID enough that I decided I wanted to see what happened to Jason i

Caller ID had me on the edge of my seat. Courtney is the only child of a millionaire developer. When she stumbles onto a secret, she is kidnapped and held for ransom. Secrets and startling discoveries unfold and throw Courtney straight into the path of danger and lies. FBI agent, Jason Edwards, feels that they're missing something and investigates a hunch a little further, only to find himself in danger as well.

I enjoyed the setting (near my home) and the characters were great. I loved the chem

I totally knew I was in for a good ride when I signed on to be a part of this blog tour for Caller ID. I read Wrong Number, also by Rachelle Christensen, and enjoyed it so I knew this would be good.

The story starts off by telling us how someone had been murdered in the woods the previous year. Courtney's dad is always telling her to stay out of the woods so when she decides to take a ride into the woods on her horse, my heart started anticipating. I tried to tell Courtney, "Do NOT go into those

When I started this I didn’t realize that there had been a previous book, Wrong Number. I don’t think it’s necessary to read them in order, but it probably would have been nice. Anyway, I really enjoyed Caller ID. It kept me guessing and there was enough excitement to keep things interesting. I liked Courtney, she is smart and savvy. She doesn’t give up and is a lot stronger than she thinks. There is also a touch of romance in the story, which I always appreciate. One thing that kinda bothered m ...more

My second suspense novel follows up on a favorite character from Wrong Number. Agent Jason Edwards has a tough case to solve when Courtney Beckham is kidnapped. This book is a spin-off, so it's a stand-alone but those who've read Wrong Number will recognize Jason.

Minor Spoilers

This was my first Rachelle Christensen book, but I could instantly see why her books have been a hit. She really knows how to pull the reader in emotionally and she understands how to write flawed characters. Some of these flawed characters are noticeable and some are instantly forgotten, but the reader is captivated by the story either way. In Caller ID, the story revolves around Courtney “Court” Beckham and I was eager to see h

Rachelle Christensen is a fairly new author since her first book, Wrong Number really burst onto the suspense scene two years ago. Rachelle had a way of ratcheting up the tension a little higher with each page in that book and I really enjoyed the sprint to the final scene. I couldn't seem to read Wrong Number fast enough, so I was pretty excited to get my hands on her new book, Caller ID.

At a time when Courtney is re-evaluating her life, all hell breaks loose--lies, betrayal, beat-up, etc. But, she surprises herself with how brave she can be. Jason Edwards not only helps "save the day", but he's also someone Courtney can be honest with. The story had me hooked from the beginning.

I love a good suspense book and this one fit the bill! Courtney Beckham is twenty-three, comes from a wealthy family and lives a charmed life. She's beautiful and has lots of guys after her, but due to a bad experience in her past, it's hard for her to get close to any of them. She's finishing college and works for her father, a developer, whenever he needs her help.

I read Caller ID by Rachelle J. Christensen. It takes place in the Utah mountains, Wasatch front. The main characters are Courtney and Jason. Courtney loved the mountains, she missed riding her horse in the canyon and meadows. She can't anymore because a runner got murdered up there and her dad won't let her. One day she sees that the police think they have the murder, so she goes for a ride just before a date with her friend Cobra. She goes up and finds marijuana plants and she gets kidnapped. ...more

Exciting Action + Unpredictable Mystery + Hint of Romance = Caller ID!

One of my favorite parts of this book were the unexpected twists and turns. I loved that it kept me guessing and managed to take me by surprise (which I have to admit is very hard to do after reading so many gazillions of books!) It was a fast-paced and suspenseful and I could hardly put it down!

Despite all the thrilling adventure, I also loved the sweet romance that was brewing just under the surface. Even though most of the

I love a good suspense book, and when you add some romance in for good measure you have a very happy Michelle. Caller ID is intense and zips right along, and keeps you guessing! Any suspense/thriller book that can actually keep me guessing is an A in my book. There is nothing worse than an overly predictable mystery. It takes all the fun out of it. But Caller ID is full of twists and turns!

On top of the awesome mystery, there is a sweet romance. I loved the dynamic between Courtney and Jason. I

Kidnapping books are a bit too realistic for me. Courtney, isn't injured too badly, but the story still made me think of all the ways she could have been. (Shiver) The writing was great, it was a good mystery with a surprise ending. Courtney was strong during the whole ordeal and FBI Agent Jason Edwards made yet another appearance in trying to free a young lady from her captors. I enjoyed reading his thoughts and seeing his personal involvement in the case. As the book came to an end, I wanted t ...more

Caller ID has a great storyline with a strong female protagonist. Also, one of my favorite characters from Rachelle's book, Wrong Number, is back in this book, FBI agent Jason Edwards. This book will keep you reading and gripping the cover. There are also some wicked twists and turns that will leave you shaking your head. Rachelle is a talented writer and has a great handle on the craft of writing a good mystery/suspense novel. There is also a little bit of romance included that is always nice!

This one was a real page-turner with lots of adventure, intrigue and a little romance thrown in. I always like books with strong female characters, and Courtney was no exception. She wasn't so strong that she was unbelieveable, but used her head and resources at hand to be admirable in the way she handled her kidnapping ordeal.
