Review: Deadly Encounter by DiAnn Mills

Deadly EncounterI really struggled with this book. I have enjoyed other novels by this author, but this story just did not work for me. I had trouble connecting or caring about the two main characters, Stacy and Alex. Stacy continually did things that annoyed me! I did, however, admire the way she cared about the boy named Whitt, who she was working to gain custody of. Whitt was also a pivotal character in the novel and I really did like him. He added a lot of interest, humor, and depth to the story for me.

I think many readers will enjoy this book, partly because the scheme behind the events of the story was very elaborate. It did keep me guessing. I’m not sure how plausible it would be for these events to occur, but it was very creative. The book did pick up in interest for me around the final quarter of the novel.

(3 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Deadly EncounterAirport Ranger volunteer Stacy Broussard expected a peaceful Saturday morning ride around the perimeter of Houston’s airport.

Next to the body is an injured dog, the dead man’s motorcycle, and a drone armed with a laser capable of taking down a 747.Though FBI Special Agent Alex LeBlanc sees a clear-cut case of terrorism, his past has taught him to be suspicious of everyone, even witnesses. Even bleeding-heart veterinarians like Stacy. But when her gruesome discovery is only the first in a string of incidences that throw her life into a tailspin, Alex begins to wonder if Stacy was targeted. As a health emergency endangers Stacy’s community, and the task force pulls in leads from all directions, Alex and Stacy must work together to prevent another deadly encounter.
