[Kindle] ⚔ Expert Witness ♗ Fobi-lieser.de

An exciting and suspenseful plot with fast paced action until the very end I enjoyed the fact that there were multiple motives provided and kept me guessing about who was doing what and why. Non stop action kept me reading to find out what would happen next Max and Sydney had to move quickly to stay ahead of the various assassins sent after her The Christian element was strong, with Sydney not shy about sharing her reliance on God, although I felt that Max s quick about face with his spirituality didn t quite fit his character.The romance definitely took a back seat to the plot with several twists and turns leading to an exciting climax, but the attraction and admiration between Max and Sydney simmers throughout the book Highly recommend to fans of Christian suspense Thank you to the author for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review [Kindle] ♽ Expert Witness ☩ DANGEROUS TESTIMONY Minutes After Testifying In A Murder Trial, Sketch Artist Sydney Berry Is

such a strong character who learns to fight back after being in an abusive relationship and escaping from it She is determined not to join witness protection after working so hard to have the life she has At times in the story, that decision seems reckless, but at other moments it made perfect sense.Max is FBI turned Marshal agent and his first assignment is protecting Sydney He doesn t realize what risks this assignment will put him in, but he NEVER backs down and gets frustrated when Sydney insists on helping setting the bad guys up to be caught It was also sweet that Sydney has learned to depend on her faith to get her through stress and traumatic moments in her life while Max grew up going to church but turned his back on God after a sour experience Yet as hard hearted as Max has made himself, Sydney s faith inspires him and affects him deeper than the danger they are in together Dylan does a stand up job of getting the reader not only to care about Sydney and Max but also the minor characters in the story You can tangibly feel the tension as Max desperately tries to figure out who the bad guys are and how they are all connected One of my favorite scenes is when Sydney faces her abusive ex boyfriend in the story and THIS time, she is NOT the victim Even so, she only fights back to protect herself and not for revenge which made me like her evenThere s also one scene where Sydney has to testify in court and loved how it was written.This is Dylan s second book and I do hope there will be MANYThanks to the author for the review copy Title Expert WitnessAuthor Rachel DylanPages 219Year 2015Publisher Love Inspired SuspenseMy rating is 4 stars.My two favorite things about the Love Inspired Suspense stories is that they get the story going quickly and readers get to see faith in action not just in word This book is no exception It takes place in Atlanta, Georgia The two main characters are Max Preston, a U.S Marshal and Sydney Berry, a forensic artist and expert witness.Sydney has given part of her testimony on opening day in the trial of a prominent businessman s murder trial She is set to give the bulk of her testimony tomorrow Due to suspected ties to a local drug gang by the defendant, Sydney is assigned a protective agent from the U.S Marshal s Office in the person of Max Preston Upon leaving the courthouse, she is in immediate need of his protection as she is the target of a drive by shooting She is uninjured, but she has been put on notice that she is not safe to go home She and Max head to a safe house, but soon after arrival their

hat Sydney s strong faith will be put into action as she must run for her life Max revisits his past and why he veered from his faith after he sees Sydney s dependence on God This is a good story for a rainy afternoon or anytime readers have a few hours It won t take long to read as the pages will flip quickly I liked this book a lot I loved how strong Sydney the heroine is mentally and physically in quest to testify against a killer Even though there were many attempts on her life to prevent Sydney from testifying , she never gave up That s what impressed U.S Marshal Max Preston the most and he vows to make sure she s alive to make to the trial Took me a while to finish this book, but it was worth reading for, good pace of action and suspense added with touching part about faith and belief in prayers and God.Intrigued immediately with the character of Sydney Berry, a court sketch artist who was in the wrong place and time at first initial thought, but as the story progresses, there was a dark secret, a disgruntled ex boyfriend, Rick Ward, based on his character name, already sounded creepy and scary that he can do anything to hurt Sydney, from injuring her self confidence, beauty and willing to kill her to completely eliminate her.Then there was Max Preston, a US Marshal who was amazed with Sydney s determination and stubbornness for not allowing what happened to her in the past to change her to become little and small, but to make her even stronger, physically, emotionally and even best, in her faith to God.And how her belief in faith that kept her strong and going, her kindness, determination and stubbornness able to change Max s heart to start believing again in his faith to God.And actually loving the ending, never thought it was one of the good guys who end up being the really bad guy, Tom Hilton who was Max s most trusted colleague I hope the writer will write a good story about Brian, the survivor in this story, who was also Max s colleague who got hurt to find the truth, in how he survived the attack and start his healing process to get back on his feet. First of all I would like to thank the author for giving me a copy of this fantastic book to read and review.Sydney Berry is a forensic artist who is to testify in a murder trial She is determined to testify and put a killer away but when she is almost killed in a drive by shooting everything changes Since her testimony is so important she is being protected by U.S Marshal Max Preston After the shooting and another attempt on her life, Max basically kidnaps Sydney, hiding her away and not even telling his boss about it He is determined to keep her safe but doesn t know who he can trust after suspecting a leak in the police department.The character development was excellent allowing me to really get to know and understand this pair I liked that Sydney was a strong, determined woman who wasn t scared off just because someone was trying to kill her Max s dedication to protect her and his skills to get the job done just made me love him.I loved this book and didn t want to put it down Unfortunately, my work frowns upon me phoning in reading otherwise I would have read it right through But when I had to stop reading, I couldn t stop thinking about it. Expert Witness is a great choice for fans of romantic suspense It is full of interesting characters, lots of action, and a sweet romance.I really liked learning about the back stories for both Sydney and Max The traumatic past that Sydney had to overcome molded her into a very different person than she used to be, and opened her up to learning about God Max was just the opposite He allowed his past to turn him away from God and he became closed off emotionally Seeing these two characters connecting, while trying to stay alive, kept the story moving along at a nice pace.Expert Witness is full of side characters who will keep you guessing It is hard to know who can be trusted As one thing after another seems to go wrong for Sydney and Max, finding honorable people to help them is a must, but is easier said than done.I enjoyed reading this exciting suspense novel and look forward to manyfrom this author.I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.You can read this review on my blog at EXPERT WITNESS is a fast paced romantic suspense that keeps the pages turning I enjoyed getting to know Sydney and Max Sydney is stronger than most heroines in romantic suspense books Coming from an abusive relationship, she learned how to fight back She is not content to sit in the sidelines, but she doesn t make stupid mistakes like most heroines in these books in an effort to be independent She is smart enough to know when to set tight Max is on his first assignment as a U.S Marshal and he s already breaking the rules He stepping solo, disobeying his boss, kidnapping the witness, and thumbing his fingers at the rules in an effort to keep her safe But now he s a wanted man and will he even have a career in law enforcement when it all ends A great story Recommended.
