Moving Target by Lynette Eason
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Publication Date: January 31, 2017

Wow! I listened to this one on audio and it was kind of like watching one of those scary movies that you just can’t tear your eyes away from because any second now the bad guy could come out of nowhere to terrorize you further. And this bad guy? He’s not only going for terror, he’s intent on murder, and Elite Guardian Maddy McKay, and Detective Quinn Holcombe are next on his list.

Their friends don’t think much of it when Quinn doesn’t show up to his own birthday party. He didn’t want one, after all, and was pretty vocal about the fact. They were mildly disturbed, though, when Maddy didn’t show up either. Weren’t they supposed to be having supper together to give all of them time to prepare? When they check her house, everything looks as it should, except Maddy is gone. Calls are going directly to voicemail for both Quinn and Maddy. What’s going on?

When Maddy wakes up in a windowless, concrete room, she is petrified. What happened? Why is she here? Then, she realizes there is another body in the room with her. It’s Quinn! What is going on? As he wakes up, it becomes apparent that they were both drugged somehow. Then a voice speaks to them from the walls of their cell, and their consternation turns to terror. They have 24 hours to elude their captor on this private island. If they win, they get to live. If he wins, they die. He has already “won” eight times. Do they even have a chance?

This book was truly terrifying! Maybe I’m just a wimp when it comes to scary stories, but I had to admire Quinn and Maddy’s ability to see the dangers – both the hidden ones and the not so hidden ones. Maddy’s reliance on God gave her an internal fortitude that kept her running even when, physically, she should have just shut down.

This third book in the Elite Guardians series is a thrill ride, wrapped in a twisty tornado, seasoned with good friendships, and a smidgen of romance. I heartily recommend the entire series, although, I will say they don’t HAVE to be read in order. In fact, I read #4 before #3, and lightning didn’t strike. Number 3 was every bit as good as I expected. Loved this boom! Someone, somewhere, needs to make it into a movie!

Rated PG: The suspense and some of the situations are pretty scary. I don’t recommend it for kids!
