The Survivor by DiAnn Mills

The SurvivorBook Description:
Kariss meets Dr. Amy Garrett, who survived a brutal childhood attack in which the assailant was never found. Now Dr. Garrett wants her story written in a novel. Kariss wishes she could seek the advice of Special Agent Tigo Harris, but she broke off the relationship a few months prior and seeing him again would be too painful. She interviews Amy and conducts her own research, stepping unaware into a viper’s pit of danger.

Tigo misses Kariss and wants her back, but he understands why she broke off their relationship. Instead, he concentrates on solving a car bombing and bringing the killer to justice. As Kariss’s new story attracts an onslaught of danger that she never expected, can Tigo save the woman he loves and find who wants her dead for writing about an unsolved cold-case?

My Thoughts:
I completely loved this book.  Kariss and Tigo are not together for stubbornness and faith issues.  Kariss is speaking to Dr. Amy Garrett about writing a book about Amy's horrible childhood experience.  Tigo is investigating a bombing for Linc that is both personal and tragic.  Writing Amy's story puts Kariss in danger once again, but who is targeting her?  How can Amy's long ago abduction and attempted murder be connected to a car bombing?
I still love Kariss.  She is stubborn, strong and not afraid to champion those who need championed.  Tigo is still wonderful and crazily stubborn!  The story line was great.  I completely disliked Amy's brother and didn't trust her at all.  She had to go through a lot as a child and it definitely shaped her.  The way the separate story lines work together and draw Kariss and Tigo to each other had me hooked from the beginning.
I rate this a 5/5.  I cannot wait for more from this author!
