Kathy Harris writes an amazing page turner in Deadly Commitment. The story is exciting and kept me at the edge of my seat as I devoured this story in one sitting. There is just the right amount of romance with layers of deceit and deception. The story is written with beautiful character building in the setting of beautiful Nashville. From the start I was gripped into the story by Harris’ gifted storytelling and takes me through a satisfying ending that have me believing in hope especially for th ...more

Wow, this is an awesome Romantic Suspense!!! I literally could not put it down. I read it in less than a day. Then I went back and skimmed through it and read the best parts over again! This is only the second fiction book for Kathy Harris and she very quickly moved to my very favorites list!

I couldn’t figure out what Danni could see in Robert Evan’s, the man just acted fake. And being on the road all of the time, it wasn’t really that hard to fig

"Why was it suddenly so hard to breathe? Because more than the weather had changed in the last three hours?"

Unsure of anything anymore, Danni Kemp is trying to make sense of it all. The man that she had dated for years and would presumably marry, is being accused of keeping dangerous secrets. Conversely, the man whom she thought was a dangerous intruder, is in fact someone who had her protection in mind. Is she in that much danger? She cannot imagine why.

While Deadly commitment is a romantic suspense, the story does not proceed at the breakneck pace other books in the genre do with little room to breathe. There are plenty of intense moments but there is also solid character development in this new release from Kathy Harris.

Early on, readers are made aware of at least one of the criminals. Yet, the questions continue to pile up as we try to unravel how everything connects.

With an emotionally packed opening scene, Deadly Commitment by Kathy Harris immediately has readers invested in what happens next. As a young child, Danielle Kemp was a witness to the trauma and pain of drug addiction, but she refuses to allow her past experiences write her future. Now, in present day Nashville, Danni, at least on paper, appears to have everything going for her: a successful and handsome music manager boyfriend, a rising career doing what she loves, a loyal canine companion, and ...more

There is nothing I enjoy reading more than a romantic suspense novel and this first book of Kathy Harris' new The Deadly Secrets series did not disappoint in the slightest. I was drawn into this story right from the start, and couldn't put it down until the very end. Now, unlike some stories in this genre that keep you on the edge of your seat with nonstop action and unanswered questions, this one was a bit different. There wasn't really much of a whodunnit to figure out, so much as just waiting ...more

'Deadly Commitment' begins with an intrigue nonstop page turning twist and edge of your seat action message...that touches on controversial issues bringing a new perspective of redemption and hope! It echoes grace through struggle, healing through heartache, forgiveness through redemption and how God can be seen at work in the lives of ordinary people. Set in Nashville Tennessee it offers both big city and Southern charm reaching back to Danni Kemp's first encounter of betrayal in her early chil ...more

The author blew my mind.
I loved the pace of the story, the author's writing style and use of words. It wasn't fast paced that gets you panting but it was steady, pulling you in little by little. I'd definitely read more books by this author.

Danni was calm, collected and a successful young woman. I loved how she carried herself through the book, even when things started to fall apart with her fiance and her life she was still calm and seeking ways to make things better. I loved how she didn't a

This story sucked me in from the start, with it's prologue about Danni's past and then her future colliding with the past. When she gets the sense that she is being stalked by the homeless man outside her place, she begins to take more notice of her surrounding and realizes that things are not as they seem.
While this is a suspense title, it isn't an incredibly fast paced one, which I liked. I enjoyed getting to know Danni and her friend/coworker Jaycee (who I hope is the heroine in the nex

What happens when the man you most trust becomes the man you should trust least—and when the man you thought dangerous becomes the one to save you?

Danni Kemp has everything going for her, including a terrific job and a handsome almost-fiancée. But when she’s suddenly thrown into the world of drugs, lies, and murder she must choose between pretending everything is still okay and facing the evil that has entered her life.

Kathy Harris does a wonderful job of creating believa

Deadly Commitments – book one in the new The Deadly Secrets series. A fantastic and suspense filled romantic suspense that will leave you questioning everyone.

This story highlights on some touchy subjects (like illegal drugs), but it does so honest and emotional way. Bringing a bit of redemption, hope, and grace with it. The chemistry between the two love interests really helped bring this story to life.

This page turner, happens at a bit of a slower pace then the usual story in this genre, sti

“Life had no do-overs. Only course corrections. Mistakes with fatal consequences can’t be taken back. Life lost is gone forever. But life that remains can be redeemed.”

3.5 stars for this first book in the Deadly Secrets series and the first book by Kathy Harris for me. The premise and the way the author approaches the drug world are enlightening. The cruel destructive aftermath of addiction and the hope/grace offered to those struggling for recovery are well-portrayed, personal and r

Deadly Commitment is the kind of book where you get lost in the story from the first page until the last. Just when you think the characters are going to get out unscathed, Harris tosses another problem, another obstacle in their path. The ending is satisfying, and the relationships between the characters is deep and complex. Highly recommended. Leeann Betts, author of “By the Numbers” cozy mystery series.

Thank you in advance to JustRead Publicity Tours, New Hope Publishers, and author Kathy Harris for providing a review copy. A positive review was not required, all words and thoughts are my own.

“Deadly Commitment”, a Christian Suspense/Christian Fiction novel, is the first in the “Deadly Secrets” series by author Kathy Harris. The novel is set in the author’s home town of Nashville, Tennessee which is also known as Music City.

This was a suspenseful story with some unexpected exciting moments! I had a hard time connecting with Danielle as she was dating a guy she couldn't seem to make up her mind about. One minute she was going to break up with him, the next she's making a lifelong commitment. There were so many red flags about him, yet she kept making excuses. She didn't really know if he was a believer but then she seemed like she'd strayed far from her faith, too. I did enjoy seeing her making her way back with the ...more

I never really read mystery/suspense books because I just felt like it would be something I would like, but this book was awesome. I really enjoyed unraveling this story and watch the characters change with the story line. Danni was a very brave character I thought because I personally would be terrified to go through what she did. It was also encouraging to see Danni return to her faith in Jesus. She had went through a lot losing her mom that way and it was nice to see her helping other girls s ...more
