Start your review of Pursued (The Nikki Boyd Files, #3)
Another excellent installment in the Nikki Boyd series. These books are so addictive! I love Lisa Harris's writing, and it's great that the stories are squeaky clean, too. Plenty of thrills and danger without sensuality or curses. Happy face!

Do yourself a favor: when you start book one, have two and three all lined up behind them. Definitely recommended.

Nikki has a lot to deal with in this story. The main suspect appears to have his finger in every pie, yet is so charming and innocent in person

This third novel from the Nikki Boyd Files was action packed! The action begins on page one and doesn't let up until the final few pages.

Nikki is traveling on a commercial flight from Houston to Nashville when there is an explosion downing the plane. She is looking forward to seeing Tyler after his return from the Middle East. Instead of spending time with Tyler, she finds herself on a 48 hour ride to find a missing passenger from the plane.

First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, PURSUED is, I think, the first book I've read by Lisa Harris, but I am greatly impressed. This suspense grabbed hold and held on through-out the entire book.

Yes, I knew who the bad guy was. I knew why. But the suspense was in Nikki trying to find the missing key witness before the villain did. How did the witness disappear so fast? Even more scary is airline officials denied that anyone was eve

Fans of police dramas will enjoy this fast moving story! From the first exciting scene to the end, it all takes place in just a few action-packed days.
Nikki leads an exciting life as a missing persons investigator in Nashville. She is a good character, tough and smart, but compassionate when needed. Plenty of action and suspense with some gritty scenes, yet also some touching moments squeezed in that add inspiration and a little bit of a romantic interest carried over from the other books. Not

I didn't think I could love another series by Lisa Harris as much as I loved her Southern Crimes series, but the Nikki Boyd files definitely give it a run for its money. "Pursued" is the third book in the series and although you'd get more enjoyment out of reading the entire series, you don't have to in order to enjoy this one. The book takes off with a bang, literally, as the flight Nikki is on crash lands and the woman in the seat next to her vanishes, seemingly into thin air. In the midst of ...more

Book #3 in The Nikki Boyd Files takes us on another trip with Special Agent Nikki Boyd of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations. Action fills the pages of this book from the start when the plane Nikki is traveling crashes upon landing and the woman sitting next to her mysteriously disappears.

This suspense story certainly delivers. It seemed that every other chapter significant setbacks held the heroine from accomplishing her mission but I have to admit that by the time I got to the last ten cha

Enter another fast-paced race against time. I love the way that this series is an adrenaline charged adventure. The romance takes a back-seat, yet moves a step forward sweetly toward what I hope is a forever for the characters. The twists and turns kept the pages flying for me. A perfect read for those who love romantic suspense where the suspense takes center stage.

I think Pursued is my favorite book in the series so far. After being slightly disappointed in the previous book, I was a little nervous that this book would also let me down...but it didn't and instead I was hooked and really enjoyed the story.

I loved how the romance that had been teased about in the first two books, finally ended up being a part of the story. I really like both of those characters and seeing them in a relationship is great and makes me happy for them. :)

Can you imagine sitting next to someone on a plane and having the plane crash, you survive, but they tell you that no one was in the seat next to you? Must have a concussion, but you have something in your possession that proves you are right, will they believe you? This is basically what happens to Nikki, and what it leads to is unimaginable.

When the woman who was seated next to her disappears, the FBI ask Nikki to help. But it's a race against time, and the FBI won't share all of the details.

This book has one of the best opening scenes with the plane crash. I really felt sucked in. The first half I was completely wrapped up. Then as the second half went on and more murders, while not graphic, I started feeling it was too much. I think I'm more used to love inspired suspense books which are much tamer. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't too descriptive, it's totally a personal thing. If I were in a different mood I maybe would have even been less bothered. Since it's all mood & preference ...more

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review. In order to prepare to read this book, I did read the first two books in the series as I wanted to know what happened previously. The book does a great job in explaining what has happened in the past but I just like to read series in order. I'm glad that I did because I got to see how Nikki and Tyler's relationship grew over these books.

There was plenty of action and excitement, but I wasn't wild about the ending. It seemed a little too easy.

I was surprised there wasn't more revealed about Nikki's sister in this one. In both of the previous books, she has gotten more information, and there wasn't much learned in this one.

I also found it a little hard to believe that the book takes place over only 2 days. It's a little hard to believe that Nikki could have had that much happen to her in 48 hours.

Overall a good suspens

I love mysteries and suspense that keep me hopping and begging me not to put the book down. With Lisa Harris's The Nikki Boyd Files, I have felt like that completely. With this series, I have returned to Nikki Boyd and her best friend, Tyler, and watched her interact with the mysteries that come across her lap.

The writing is clear and concise. I can completely see the setting. I could feel the airplane turbulence in the first couple of chapters and held my breath as they crashed to the earth. H

Pursued was a roller coaster of a suspense novel! It was absolutely packed with action. The main character, Nikki Boyd, was plunged into danger time and again as she desperately tried to solve her latest case.

Pursued is the third book in the Nikki Boyd Files series. The main storyline in this novel, which is one of a missing woman, could stand alone. Yet I believe that the underlying character and relationship growth between Nikki and Tyler would be better understood by reading all of the books

The woman in the seat next to Nikki strikes up a conversation and tells Nikki she is afraid. Before they can continue their conversation, more turbulence strikes and it is discovered that the man next to this woman is dead, then the plane takes a nose dive.

Lisa Harris gives us a story with more twists than O. Henry! Don't bother trying to guess. Just allow yourself to be swept up in this thrilling ride!

I do just want to note that there are some hard deaths in this story. Nothing extremely graphic, but that doesn't make it any less difficult.

The story starts with an airplane crash that makes me seriously reconsider ever flying again! Once Nikki is pulled into the missing person case for her fellow passenger, her life is put on the line again and ag

At the recommendation of a Goodreads friend I decided to try out my first Lisa Harris book. I was not disappointed! Despite the fact that it was the third in the series (what is with that? This is now the third book in a row that I’ve read that was the third in a series. I guess they do say ‘three’s a charm’ but seriously! Okay anyway…), it worked pretty good as a stand-alone.

I have been looking forward to Pursued since I read its excerpt last year at the end of Missing. This story was an adrenaline rush. Starting with the crashed airplane that Nikki was on; her day goes from pretty bad to worst. And then some more bad happens, a lot. I actually felt really bad for her and if it were me I would have went off with new hunky boyfriend/ best friend Tyler for the rest of the day. But no, Nikki becomes a key witness and the best possible hope in a missing person’s case of ...more

I have really enjoyed this series, and am hoping there is at least one more. It was not obvious by the way the book ended if the series is over or not.

This book had far more mystery, suspense, and action than the previous two books. I actually feared the book was going to be slow and boring, and how wrong I was. It took a while for the action and suspense to start, but the book really took off when it did start. I found myself reading as fast as I could to see what would happen next. Bodies we

This is the third in the Nikki Boyd series. She is an agent with the missing persons division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. While this book reads well on its own, I suggest reading the earlier books in the series to understand Nikki's passion for finding missing persons.

This novel has a good combination of action and investigative techniques. Nikki is a capable investigator but she is plagued with disrupting thoughts. I did get a bit tired of Nikki thinking of something in the past,

If you love a good law enforcement suspense read, look no further. This book is action from the first chapter to the last—the kind of action that has the good guys on the back foot from the get-go, scrambling to find the person they’re supposed to be protecting, let alone trying to get to the bottom of what’s really going on.

Nikki’s arrival in Nashville also coincides with Tyler’s return from a three month posting in Liberia, and she’s anticipating their reunion as the plane comes in to land, bu

With the entire book taking place in little over 48 hours, it is comprised of non-stop action and danger. After all that Nikki goes through in the first 24 hours (never mind the second), it's amazing she can function at all. I just can't believe, after all the physical and psychological trauma she goes through, that her superiors would allow her to remain on the case, not with the FBI and the rest of the missing persons task force on the case. Even if she is great at her job, she's not the only ...more

God, sometimes I feel so . . . weak. I can't do this on my own. I'm too tired, too scared, and yet for some reason you put me here to fight this battle.

It was a fight for those who couldn't fight for themselves. A fight for justice and all that should be right in the world when it wasn't. It was all she really wanted to do. Make a difference. Whether she was a schoolteacher or working beside the FBI to save a young girl.”
