Special Assignment truly conveys reliance on God for all things, unlike many "Christian" books that offhandedly mention God (you know what I am talking about?). I think Melissa and Scott's story is a very good mystery, with a hint of romance, and quite a dash of adventure. I give this story a five out of five stars for the unique story plot, the great mystery that kept me guessing, and the characters who were not wishy-washy but stood up for what they believed in. This is my first time reading a ...more

I stayed up all night last night to finish this book!!
A new to me author with her fabulous writing took me on an adventure I'll never forget!! With awesome characters like Melissa and Scott Joe, Kyle and Heather and a few other friends as well!!
Melissa with her vivacious spirit and love for her family and friends and I'd like to think her adventurous side along with Scott's side for fun and serious side.
I admire anyone who has the ability and talent for flying those kinds of planes.

Wow! This book grabbed my attention and pulled me in. The main characters, Scott (a navy pilot) and Melissa (a vice president of operations at a defense contractor), are likable and very well-developed. Scott's close relationship with his childhood friends is one of loyalty and understanding. Scott's prayer--"God, why? Why haven't you healed me yet?...I just don't understand. I know you are good, but right now, I'm having a hard time seeing it." -- is one that most readers can easily relate to. ...more

I very much enjoyed this clean romantic suspense, the characters were very likeable, and while it can be read as a stand alone, it was fun meeting up with old friends from the earlier books. I always love reading books that involve the military, and I really liked the personal perspective of the accident investigation given that Scott himself was the injured naval aviator which really made him personally invested in finding the answers to prove the accident wasn’t caused by pilot error.

This is the first book by this author I've read and it will not be the last. I realized after I read this book that this is the third book in the series. I believe this book can stand alone. "Special Assignment" was one amazing book! I normally don't read suspense book, but I fell in love with this book. It was filled with a ton of suspense and adventure. You are caught in the story from page one.

Now he's worrying not only about his own recovery, but how to clear himself of pilot error that the Navy says caused the loss of the multimillion-dollar jet and the death of his EWO. He has time to reconnect to his childhood friends Joe and Kyle, a firefighter and a policeman, whose circle of church-going friends includes Melissa, COO of a defense contractor.

Special assignment

Melissa is trying to figure out what is going on at her office. She is finding out it is dangerous to do so.

The story has me interested from start to finish. Very suspenseful. Very entertaining. Loved the characters, especially Melissa and Scott. He is trying to recover from an injury. His accident is connected with the company she works at. Will she figure it out before it is too late.

I definitely recommend reading this book.

Special Assignment is the third installment from J L Crosswhite’s series, Hometown Heroes. Even though it is part of a series, I believe it can be read as a stand alone. I enjoyed Melissa’s story. Especially, when she teams up with Scott. I loved those two together. I could not predict what would happen to them next.
I recommend Special Assignment for readers who enjoy clean romantic suspense. I am giving it four and a half stars.
I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to

WOW!! If you are looking for a well written christian romantic suspense book , this is the book for you. This is an awesome book, once you start reading it you can't stop! It is full of action, suspense and romance. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. Even though this is book 3 of Hometown Heroes I had no problem knowing what was going on. But now I'm going to read the other two books in the series.

While Melissa tries to find out where the missing money is for her company, she uncovers some dirty dealings. She involves a grounded Air Force pilot and his brother to see what’s going on. Scott is blamed for the death of his friend because of pilot error. However, that may not be the case. Melissa is also investigating computer malfunctions that could have caused the crash.
Interesting storyline and interesting discovery of who is behind everything going on.

Ever read a book that pulls you in from the start and takes you on a thrilling adventure leaving you satisfied in the end? That's what Special Assignment did for me. With the perfect blend of suspense and romance, you're not disappointed. I enjoyed every part of the story and appreciated how the author was really descriptive without losing me or the story. Scott and Melinda too real, vulnerable characters wanting to find the as guys. I enjoyed their relationship.
A truly great book.

If you are looking for a clean Christian suspense romance, this one is the book for you. I have to add that it’s also the first book I read by this author, and I have to say I am hooked .
The story centers around Scott Blake and Melissa Ellis.
Scott is a Navy pilot, recently injured in an accident that caused the death of a friend, and has left him with a serious brain injury as well as questions about what caused the accident. Was is pilot error or computer malfunction?
Melissa is head of operatio

This is my first foray into the writings of JL Crosswhite, and I am hooked. This book had all of my favorite things: mystery, military, romance, and Jesus. It did have some predictability, but I loved reading it. I struggled to put it down. After reading this, I will definitely be checking out the rest of this series.

I was given an ARC to read and review. All opinions expressed are my own.
