One Wrong Move (Jeopardy Falls #1) by Dani Pettrey


Taunting riddles.
A deadly string of heists.
Two broken hearts trapped in a killer's game.

Christian Macleod was pulled into a life of crime at a young age by his con artist parents. Now making amends for his corrupt past, he has become one of the country's foremost security experts. When a string of Southwestern art heists captures the FBI's attention, Christian is paired up with a gifted insurance investigator who has her own checkered past.

Andi Forster was a brilliant FBI forensic analyst until one of her colleagues destroyed her career, blaming her for mishandling evidence. She now puts those skills to work investigating insurance fraud, and this latest high-stakes case will test her gift to the limit. Drawn deep into a dangerous game with an opponent bent on revenge, Christian and Andi are in a race against the clock to catch him, but the perpetrator's game is far from finished, and one wrong move could be the death of them both.

Author Dani Pettrey is one of my favorites in the romantic suspense/Christian fiction genre.  I've loved reading her books over the years.  I know exactly what type of book I'm going to get every time and that's what keeps me coming back for more.

This is the beginning of a new series and this story really sets up all the players in not only this book but books to come.  At first all the people were overwhelming.  I had a harder time keeping them straight and I kept wondering if I had missed something from a previous book that would have helped me know all these people and who were but as the story progressed I settled in and became more comfortable.  

The backstory for both Andi and Christian unfolded bit by bit and I loved getting to know them and understand them more intimately.  The past and the present kept colliding as the two of them tried to solve mysteries and stay alive.  It was dangerous, exciting and engaging.  I was pulled in and by the end of the book, I couldn't read fast enough.  I just had to know it all!  Some things were resolved but other things were left open for future books.  That has me really excited for what's to come!!  Oh, and I love the cover for this book!  I think it's so cool.

Content:  peril, violence, mention of death and murder, kissing.  Christian fiction so mention of God, praying, faith.
