The Chase by DiAnn Mills

Here is the first review for today!

The Chase might had had a stronger title if it were named Cherished Doe, even though I can see why it isn't named that. Why you asked?  Well New York Times best seller Kariss Walker has decided to stop writing romance novels, and break into a new field of writing - suspense. To do this she has to get out of the "box" she is in and team up with an FBI agent to get enough of the day to day working and case solving skills to be able to make this book realistic. This pairs Kariss up with FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris. He isn't her type, but she is drawn to him, and he too her. As a former news anchor, she has skills, guts and she thinks well on her feet.

Kariss is completely dedicated to solving the Cherished Doe case, which is a very cold 5 year old murder mystery. This little girl starved to death, and her body was dumped and no one knows anything at all. But that is never the case, so Tigo and Kariss keep searching for answers. This is not Tigo's only case, but will his new "sidekick" get killed in the process, or just get them both killed? Kariss must find where she left God out of her life before it is too late to do so. How far will one woman go to fulfill her dreams, and what cost will be the ultimate price?

To the FBI it's a cold case. To Kariss Walker it's a hot idea that could either reshape or ruin her writing career. And it's a burning mission to revisit an event she can never forget. Five years ago, an unidentified little girl was found starved to death in the woods behind a Houston apartment complex. A TV news anchor at the time, Kariss reported on the terrifying case. Today, as a New York Times bestselling author, Kariss intends to turn the unsolved mystery into a suspense novel. Enlisting the help of FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris, Kariss succeeds in getting the case reopened. But the search for the dead girl's missing mother yields a discovery that plunges the partners into a witch's brew of danger. The old crime lives on in more ways than either of them could ever imagine. Will Kariss's pursuit of her dream as a writer carry a deadly price tag? Drawing from a real-life cold case, bestselling novelist DiAnn Mills presents a taut collage of suspense, faith, and romance in The Chase.
