Wow -- my head's still spinning. What an incredible debut novel. Really unique opening. Loved the role reversal with Heidi being the professional and all about the protection detail. And the suspense? Oy, I couldn't figure it out. But I didn't feel so bad because neither could Heidi and Blake. I mean we know it involves a crime cartel but we don't know what they're up to...or why. And the author plays her cards close to her chest right to the very end. Heidi and her team kept looking for motive ...more

This is the 1st book I read by Lynn Huggins Blackburn. I'm sorry I stopped reading this story at chapter 3 because it didn't grab my interest.

A heart pounding, heart stopping, suspense book!The fact that this is a debut novel makes it even better. I look forward to reading more from this great author. There is an adorable five year old in this book that I absolutely fell in love with. Here is a quote from this character that tells just how precocious she is. "I think you're wrong about her hair. I don't think her hair got curly because she put her finger om a socket. I think she was born with it." I can so relate to this quote since I ...more

Pretty good for a debut novel. Enjoyed the fast paced opening & the book kept going at a fairly good clip. The characters were mostly believable & I liked the cast. Will definitely read more of her books!

I had wanted to read Lynn Blackburn's LI for a while, because her Dive Team books are so brilliant. I was not disappointed. Grabbed from the opening scene, the pages kept turning all the way to "The End." Excited to read Hidden Legacy, next.

This story captured my attention from the beginning and held it to the end. Entertaining & heart warming! I highly recommend it!

Absolutely loved this book! Action packed chapters from beginning to end. Loved the main characters and their faith that was shown through out the story, especially during trials. I loved Blake's family and their closeness to each other and Heidi's determination to keep them alive and bring the mob family to justice. Lots of action, drama and romance. Highly recommend!!!

What a great book. I really enjoyed it. The first chapter draws you into the story.

It was wonderful to have the roles reversed in this book. The female is the professional in law enforcement. Right from the beginning she, Heidi, is there to protect and save Blake. Blake doesn't seem to understand why someone is trying to kill him. Blake and his family owns a factory and a crime cartel is trying to take it over for their needs.

I liked both main characters-they were both strong and believable. Ev

I just finished Covert Justice. Kudos to Lynn Huggins Blackburn on her first novel. It was interesting with unique twists and a "satisfying-without-being-too-predictable" plot line. The author also seasoned the story with a nice mix of believable faith elements. I was a little slow to engage with the book initially, but as the chapters went on, I felt the author found her stride, rhythm and character development. I recommend it as a story with a unique spin that separates it from what a reader m ...more

I received this book free as an ARC. Heidi Zimmerman is an undercover FBI agent trying to bring down a mobster. Blake Harrison gets in the way and she has to protect him. She goes to work as quality control. After a lot of mystery and a few injuries Heidi starts to see who is responsible.

3.5 stars.

Blackburn packed a lot into this short contemporary. So much, in fact, that I'm still catching my breath days later - one reason I don't as a rule read suspense.

But I'm glad I picked up her debut, if only for the chance to meet Blake and Maggie! :)

Fast read and fun story . . .

This was a book club assignment that I knew I would finish quickly once I gave it the time. I got half way and then finished it in one night. ;)

The most powerful sections included quotes like this, "He knew deep in His soul God had not dropped the ball. He needed to wait. And trust". (p146)

Another one is here, "Trust that God already had all the information and He'd share it [with me] when [I] needed to know." (p175)

So, at a time in my life when I need to trust God
