ABOUT THE BOOK
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-The Survivor is the second book in the Crime Scene: Houston series and we are once again thrown into the world of Kariss and Tigo. In this one Kariss is contacted by Dr Amy Garrett who was attacked as a child but lived to help others through their abuse. Now she wants Kariss to write her story but someone doesn't want it told. At the same time she is dealing with her attraction to Agent Tigo who doesn't share her faith and never told her things. Don't want to give anything away but you will be immersed in a story full of adventure, deceit, fighting for the right, doubts about God, and family troubles. I totally enjoyed this book but I will say, this is for an adult reader. Definitely not one for teens.
