One Wrong Move

Publisher: Bethany House
Series: Jeopardy Falls
ISBN: 9780764238482

I'm such a big fan of suspense, and Dani Pettrey is synonymous with that genre! When she invited me to join her launch team, I couldn't say no to her! She sent me her book for review.


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

Christian O'Brady 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 targets one of the galleries Christian secured, he is paired up with a gifted insurance investigator who has her own checkered past.

Andi Forester was a brilliant FBI forensic analyst until her career was destroyed. 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.

My Review:

I'm always ready for a new Dani Pettrey novel! Her suspense always has me biting my nails.

In her new series, we meet a lot of people! I'm guessing they'll all play parts throughout the series. Initially in One Wrong Move, we are introduced to Andi and Christian. Andi's on her way to investigate an art heist because her company insured the gallery. Christian is the one who installed the security system. They team up to find answers and that's when everything goes nuts!

I don't know if more can happen to two people in one day than for Andi and Christian. In the midst of it all, they start to fall for each other. I struggled with how fast that romance happened in the midst of all the craziness.

Both Andi and Christian's pasts come back to give them grief and this is where Christian's brother Deckhard and Andi's bff, Harper join the story. Halfway through the book, Deck and Harper split off with their own side story, to help find answers to a case Andi had been involved in as well as Deckhard.

I enjoyed Andi and Christian together (aside from the quick romance). They both saw each other for who they are now and who they are in Christ. When they find out about each others pasts, they give grace and trust. The story has a good line of faith throughout it, which I always love!

There were times when it was a little hard to keep everything straight with the various people and their storylines. I think Deckhard and Harper could've had their own novella, but I liked the two of them together.

I am looking forward to the rest of the series because I'm a Pettrey fan!
