Book Review : The Vendetta


Lisa Harris has delivered another great suspense story!!LH-vendetta-259x400

In her latest series The Nikki Boyd Files  Lisa Harris introduces us to her newest character Nikki Boyd.  Nikki is a young woman who is a part of the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force.  After losing her younger sister years ago she is still very vulnerable about this subject and is therefore quite passionate about her job.

While hiking with a friend, Nikki is called in to see about a potential kidnapping, and quickly realizes there is more to this kidnapping than initially expected.

When reading this story I immediately connected with the characters and their relationships.  The story is what will keep you glued to your book as you will not want to put it down!  For me, the part that I appreciated the most was the subject matter of the crime.  Lisa takes an opportunity to make the reader aware of how dangerous social media can be to the youth of today.  She clearly understood everything about the potential risks for youth posting pictures and information about themselves on line.  While this was a primary part of the story is was not out of place or too heavy – it was real and simple and to the point.

The setting was described in a way that I could see the mountains of Tennessee in my mind and felt like I could see all of this playing out in my mind.  Her description of the area, the trails and especially when Lisa is in the woods at night – were fabulous!  Lisa is a pro at balancing the background details and thoughts of characters with the dialogue and story tempo.

I am a fan of Lisa Harris’s books in the past, and this one is another great story!!

NOTE : I was offered a copy of Vendetta in exchange for an honest review.


I’m a wife, mom, teacher, author, dreamer, photographer, world explorer, but most importantly a follower of Christ Jesus.

I currently live with my husband near the Indian Ocean in Mozambique where we work as church-planting missionaries. We’ve started the empty next stage with two children spread around the globe and a third—thankfully—still at home.

As a homeschooling mom, life is busy, but I see my writing as an extension of my ministry which also includes running a non-profit organization.

The ECHO Project works in southern Africa promoting Education, Compassion, Health, and Opportunity and is a way for us to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.” (Proverbs 31:8)

When I’m not working l love hanging out with my family at the beach, playing games, cooking different ethnic dishes, and heading into the African bush on safari.
