Review: Peril by Suzanne Hartmann

~Review Copy~
Peril (Fast Track Thriller #1) by Suzanne Hartmann
Publisher: OakTara (November 18, 2011)

About the book:

A top-secret agent. A high-profile assignment. Danger at a NASCAR track. Lady Anne, a top operative of the OJL, the American government's most clandestine intelligence organization, is paid to be paranoid, and she's good at her job. So good, in fact, that she singlehandedly stops an assassination attempt at the White House. When newspapers splash her photo over the front page for saving King Ahmad-a Muslim recently converted to the Christian faith-not only is her cover in jeopardy, but the secrets of her enhanced strength and the entire agency.

Then she's given another assignment-to escort King Ahmad to a NASCAR track.... Stuart Jackson, age 33 and at the peak of his career as the reigning Cup Champion of NASCAR, has everything anyone could want-fame, fortune, success. But after he's nearly blown up by a bomb at the White House, his achievements lose their allure. Nor can he forget the mysterious Lady Anne.

My thoughts:

I'm not a NASCAR fan, in fact I don't think I've ever watched a full race, but you don't have to be one to enjoy Peril! With suspense and action - Peril is one great read and while I did find Lady Anne's enhanced abilities to be slightly weird, it made the story so much more interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed the novel!

There was some romance, but I'm glad about the way things turned out. I especially liked how Lady Anne stayed true to her convictions when in a certain situation and didn't give in to her desires/attractions.

I will say that the ending to Peril really has me nervous.... I do NOT want something to happen to Neil, but the ending leads me to believe it might... 

The next Fast Track Thriller, Conspiracy, sounds really good and I hope to read it as soon as possible - I just need to know what will happen to these characters. :)

All in all, Peril is a really good book with a lot of action and, NASCAR fan or not, I think this is a book you'd enjoy if you like suspense books.
