Grant's writing jumps off the page, grabs you, and won't let you go. I loved this novel from start to finish. The rapid-paced story keeps you guessing from beginning to end. Chase Armstrong is dumped in the Maldives to spend a few months with a grandmother she didn't know she had. The stakes climb high when the island is captured by pirates! It's up to Chase to save the day. I loved the main character, she's quirky, smart, brave, and has a tongue like a whip. I can't wait to read her next ...more

I think I might need a holiday after reading this book. There is so much explosive action in it, I'm exhausted. Chase barely has time to snorkel through the coral reef before the modern day pirates attack the beach. Thanks to the super training by her Dad, Chase is ready to deal with what happens next. Alongside Mackenzie's extensive computer knowledge, they pull off some Charlie's Angels style action. Every chapter, you think Chase and Mackenzie

Chase (Charlotte) has been left on a tropical island to stay with a grandmother she has never met. She is hoping her grandma will be kind and welcoming but is disappointed. Chase soon meets Mackenzie, a computer whiz who is just as friendly as her grandmother NOT!

But Chase's navy dad has taught her to be strong, self-sufficient and resourceful, so she tries to make the best of things. These skills are soon needed when the island is invaded by modern day pirates. They are looking for a princess

It's all here: a witty, charming and courageous main character, an exotic location, an intriguing mystery, plenty of thrillingly exciting and adrenalin-filled fight scenes, a super-smart side-kick turned best friend, an enigmatic and glamorous grandmother and a satisfying emotional central story -- what else could you possibly want?! This is a cleverly revamped and modernised twist on Charlie's Angels -- strong young women who confront the dangerous situations they find themselves in with ...more

Super fast paced and lots of fun, CHASING DANGER had me on the edge of my seat guessing how Chase would get out of each tight squeeze. I love a strong young mc and Chase doesn't disappoint. She's funny and sarcastic and smart. And I loved Mackenzie, too. The two of them get into lots of trouble in totally excellent ways. Was glued to the page until the very end!
