A story back with Mark & Kate as the main characters, so I was excited to read it. It wasn't what I hoped for, but I still enjoyed it. The problems were mainly that it seemed very disjointed. Mark is on a mission where he feels like things are being withheld from him by the FBI and he feels like no one really knows what is going on. I felt the same way about the book as a whole. All the supposed "main" bad guys weren't, and the one that was seemed to be sprung on us at the last second in a v ...more

Okay, just skip from Hearts in Hiding to this book in the Haggerty series and don't bother with the rest unless you just need some books to float along with. Here we are back with Mark and Kate, and although I found the wrap-up a little confusing (why didn't the bad guys kill Mark?)and some of the plot elements (especially Frisky) a little too convenient, and the book made the FBI look pretty incompetent, this was an enjoyable read.

I really like Betsy Brannon Green. She does light mysteries that aren't too scary. This one I was not extremely thrilled with. the writing was pretty good, but the female main character was whiny and weak which is not what I remembered her being like. I felt like screaming at her, "Get a grip lady!". It was also a little far-fetched for me.

Anyway, it was still fun to read other than the whiny moments. :)

I really enjoyed the suspense in this book. It wasn't necessarily "on the edge of my seat" suspense, but definitely kept my interest. Title is "Double Cross" so the whole time I'm reading I am wondering who/where the double cross will come from. I have to admit though, if my husband was in Columbia as an undercover FBI agent I would be very frightened too. I look forward to reading the next suspense one that she has written. It was a quick and easy read,

Slowly making my way through the Haggerty Mysteries -- for this one I listened to the audio book. Although parts seemed unrealistic, I liked it better than some of the others in the series. There was more danger and peril and a few surprising twists. I also liked that the main characters focused on in this story were the original characters from the first book.
Nov 08, 2009 Rebecca rated it it was amazing
This book was just as good as the first two in the series. I loved it. I love that this book is about Mark and Kate again. They have been my favorite characters throughout the series. There is a nice change of scenery in this book as well.

i enjoyed once again the characters of Haggerty County. Even though I liked the book,it was not my favorite book of the series; thus, it took me longer to read as I kept putting the book down. It did have several surprises which I enjoyed. Looking forward to her next book in this series.

Mark goes undercover to columbia to help free a drug lord's daughter, but the "job" is not what it seems and he and his family are in more danger than he can imagine. Another good book by this author.

This was a nice story about an LDS bishop/FBI agent sent into Colombia. It's interesting how this particular agent works undercover amid the drug trades of Colombia while maintaining his LDS standards. He makes an unexpected friend. This story makes you think twice about people.

This story started out great. I was pulled in and very interested, but as it went on it just sort of fizzled.
Nov 08, 2009 Shanna rated it it was amazing
A great book! Kept me on the edge of my seat. I did not forsee the end. I usually figure out the end result but did not and was greatly surprised. What a great wholesome book.
Fun, quick read. I thought parts of it were not realistic - like the FBI involving his civilian wife in a mission, but I liked the characters.
Dec 11, 2011 Patricia rated it really liked it
I think this is my favorite book in the Haggerty series so far. I thought the plot was a lot more complex and it still had the characters I liked from the earlier books.
Nov 03, 2009 Samantha rated it liked it
This wasn't her best book in the series. The plot had a few too many random twists that didn't flow together as well as I would have liked. That said it was still a pretty fun read.

I liked trying to figure out who was setting Mark up, while also trying not to read the end like I always want to do.

I thought that the plot was very interesting. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It is a very easy read.

I liked this book, especially the intrigue part. I found myself skipping over the Ms. Eugenia home parts on the latter part of the book

Fun read, I liked how she made the Drug Lord into a real person and some of his points about supply and demand made A Lot of sense. The book didn't flow as well as her others but I still enjoyed it.

Loved this book. I really enjoyed that the characters are already familiar so no time is wasted with character connection you just dive in and this book provides action from beginning to end.
Mar 29, 2010 Erin rated it liked it
The characters still came off the tiniest bit cheesy and 2-dimensional, but based on how much I got done today (not much) it was a pretty good story!

Very good book. If you like books that are intense and mysterious then you would like this book. Couldn't put it down.

If you're not familiar with my books, I write mystery-suspense novels. I am LDS (Mormon) and so are some of my characters, but I have loyal readers from many different faiths. My goal is to engage the reader in my books. I want to make them laugh and cry and worry and dread the end.

Most of my books are set in the fictional town of Haggerty, Georgia - which is loosely based on my grand
