About the book:
After an accidental shooting during a tense standoff, FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Mark Sanders is sent to St. Louis to work as a field agent and get his bearings while the bad press settles. Just weeks away from returning to Quantico, Mark has a chance encounter with an old flame, Emily Lawson. But their reunion is cut short by a sniper. Now Mark must find the shooter before he tries to strike again. But what is his motive--and who was his intended target? Can Mark put the pieces together, keep Emily safe, and rekindle a long-dead relationship at the same time?
A fast-paced tale of romance, suspense, and intrigue, An Eye for an Eye is the exciting second installment in the Heroes of Quantico series.
Definitely fast-paced and exciting. I read the book in an evening and didn't want to put it down. It had the right amount of suspense, the right amount of romance. Who is the sniper and which one was the actual target: Mark or Emily? It's Christian without being preachy: Mark has lost his faith, but Emily's is strong and predictably, Mark finds his again. Great conversations make a story better and I loved the banter between Mark and Emily and Mark and his FBI colleagues.
This is the second of a series, but it stands alone well. I haven't read the first one yet, and while I'm sure knowing Coop's history would have been good, it wasn't completely necessary to the enjoyment of this one, as it's Mark's story and Coop is a supporting character. I have the first book on hold at the library though, and I'll read it as soon as I can. I'm looking forward to Nick's story in book three.
