HER EVERY MOVE by Kelly Irvin is an edge-of-your-seat Christian romantic suspense by a new to me author that I could not put down.

A bomb goes off at a library sponsored climate change debate in San Antonio.

Jackie Santoro, librarian and event coordinator loses her best friend in the bombing and yet still becomes a prime suspect due to her family’s past. Detective Avery Wick has doubts about Jackie’s guilt, but he also cannot exoner

Did the librarian plant the bomb? You have to read the Irvin's latest suspense novel to find out if Jackie was the one to place this bomb at her own event.
You can never go wrong with Irvin's books she is a master story teller.
This was a 4 star book you can not miss. I recommend it.

Wow! This book made me keep turning to the pages to find out who the bomber is. This is a new author to me and a genre that I don't normally read, but I really enjoyed this book! There was a lot of suspense entwined with a lot of drama! I definitely enjoyed it! I loved that she was a librarian as well. Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for the arc.

Her Every Move kept me up reading way too late! Kelly Irvin has outdone herself in this romantic suspense novel! One thing I loved--Jackie's unwavering faith. Even though she questioned God, she didn't lose her faith. This contrasted with Avery who had seen so much of the bad side of life and struggled with his faith.

Jackie is a strong character and determined to find out who was framing her family in these bombings. Kelly Irvin filled the story with twists and turns the reader doesn't expect. A

** “She refused to let the doubt in. Without faith, she had no weapon big enough to stand against this enemy.” **

Kelly Irvin delivers another incredible romantic thriller with “Her Every Move.”

Jackie Santoro, adult collections and event coordinator at San Antonio’s Central Library, is excited about the climate-control debate she has planned — until a bomb goes off, killing several important people in her life. And when Homicide Detective Avery Wick thinks she might have something to do with it —

Kelly Irvin gives us a fast pace thriller with so many surprises, and yet you wonder whom is going to survive to the end!

We have a young woman Jackie Santoro who work at the San Antonio Central Library, and among other duties is an event planner. Which is what she is doing as the book opens with a blast, yes, a bomb goes off and among the casualties is a life long friend and then she becomes a suspect.

HER EVERY MOVE by Kelly Irvin

A librarian main character? I definitely want to read it. Together with Avery, a homicide detective, they try to uncover the real killer. This book doesn’t waste it’s time. After reading just a few pages, the first bomb explodes. The varying persons of interest have kept me turning page after page. So many unanswered questions. Lots of suspenseful events that made me put it down a couple of times. There are some vivid descriptions too of the explosion aftermath. I fe

Loved this fast paced sit on the edge of your seat thriller!
I think in my opinion this is the best one yet!
Irvin has added the right amount of faith elements and I really enjoyed watching God at work here.
I loved that the characters were realistic and flawed. No one isn't perfect. Not even cops but I know that most do their best.
I think that my favorite thing was the guessing as to who dun it. I thought I had guessed correctly but even I was surprised at the end. It wasn't who I thought it was.

I received a copy of Her Every Move in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Her Every Move is a thrilling mystery written by Kelly Irvin, one that is infused with both romantic suspense and Christian Fiction.

There are times when it feels like the hits just keep on coming. Jackie Santoro is the prime suspect in a bombing – as it's believed she's attempting to avenge the suicide of her father. She knows of her innocence, but it's going to take more work to convince everyone else of that fact.

This is an excellent suspenseful novel about possible domestic terrorism set in San Antonio. Jackie Santoro was so focused on preparations for the library forum that she didn't think about the backpack that she passed on to the caterer. When a bomb exploded, Jackie knew she needed to pass that information on to authorities. Knowing Jackie's family history, Detective Avery Wick knew that she not only was a witness but also a prime suspect with thoughts of revenge. When more bombs go off, Avery do ...more

Review copy was received from NetGalley. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I enjoyed the fast paced action with a slow burn romance in the background. Her Every Move had plenty of mystery with a broad range of investigations at a frantic pace to try to prevent further deaths.  The world is richly built with a large cast of characters.  Our main characters are Jackie and Avery.

Relatable characters, suspenseful story, a developing relationship, family dynamics and a librarian as lead character depending on her faith - what else would you need?

Her Every Move
By Kelly Irvin

For more than a year Jackie Santoro has lived under the cloud of her father's crimes. Crimes that have moved Jackie to the top of the list of suspects when a bomber targets San Antonio and the very people who accused him.

Detective Avery Wick has a feeling about Jackie but he needs evidence not just a gut feeling to remove her from the person of interest list. Though she is on his personal person of interest list. Regardless, someone has San Antonio in their sights.

Reading is a gift. I read when I can’t sleep
I read when I’m sad. I read when I’m happy.
Reading gives me joy,
takes me places I’ve never been,
and I learn things.
What person wouldn’t want that gift?”

Though it opens a bit slowly, Her Every Move becomes a heart stopper as Jackie Santora, San Antonio Public Library librarian, and SAPD Detective Avery Wick stumble among the various suspects who may be placing bombs around the city. They have identified three or four, but could i

This is a must read for Kelly Irvin fans. I would never have figured out the whodunnit in this one. So many twists and I was frustrated right along with Avery, the Detective, at not being able to come up with even a good suspect for the bombings. There was so much loss of loved ones in the book that it was a little heart rending. But I quote Jackie, Remember this life is only a season the good stuff is yet to come.

Kelly Irvin has written an high octane page turner. A dangerous killer is loose in San Antonio, anyone could be the next target and time is running out to figure out who it is. The characters leap off the page, bringing the adrenaline pumping with each new clue they find and risk they take to find the killer. And will they find each other at the same time? A great mix of action, danger, and romance.

This is my first Kelly Irvin book and I enjoyed Her Every Move. I read the book very quickly and could easily have done it over a wintery weekend in front of the fire. The book is set in San Antonio, Texas and begins when an unknown "terrorist group" sets off a bomb during a climate change event and the main suspect is a librarian named Jackie Santoro.

Her Every Move by Kelly Irvin, was a action packed book from the start. This was a new author for me, and I really enjoyed the book and the storyline. This was a hard book to put down once I finally got around to reading it. I will certainly be reading more books from this author. I would certainly recommend this book to others.

Her Every Move is a contemporary suspense novel written by Kelly Irvin.

Summary: Someone just blew up the building Jackie Santoro was in. She survives, but is immediately labeled the prime suspect in the attack.

Detective Avery is determined to find out who committed this horrific crime. Everything points to Jackie-but did she do it? He has to move fast to follow the clues-before more people die.

My Thoughts: If you are looking for action, this book is jam-packed. If you are looking for any type of

I really liked this thriller set in San Antonio about domestic terrorism. It's a romantic suspense in some ways but the romance is light, in my opinion. Jackie is a librarian who likes to push the envelope somewhat and sets up a climate change discussion at the library. A bomb goes off and therein begins a reign of terror as the bomber terrorizes San Antonio until his/her demands are met. Detective Avery Wick and a host of other law enforcement people are going to solve the case but they first f ...more

Loved the fast pace and premise of this novel! The suspense kept me entertained and the plot was great. I found the chemistry lacking for the romance, I had a hard time fitting the two characters together romantically, but enjoyed them individually. Overall, a great read!

4.5 stars for this romantic suspense novel by Kelly Irvin. This book follows Jackie Santoro, a librarian extraordinaire event planner, whose most recent event is bombed, killing her best friend and several others. Avery Wick is the detective on the case and he is taken with Jackie, even though he considers her a person of interest in the case. The plot thickens as the person responsible reaches out to the media and makes threats to bomb again. The police are racing against the clock and Jackie c ...more
