There is no such thing as random
Research scientist Caitlyn Lindsey is convinced that someone is taking out her team one by one. First, a friend and research partner was killed in a home invasion. Three months ago, her boss died in a suspicious car accident. Four days ago, another partner supposedly committed suicide. And now Caitlyn herself has miraculously survived a hit-and-run. Afraid for her life with nowhere to turn, she reaches out to one of the victims' husbands, Detective Josh Solomon.
Though initially skeptical about Caitlyn's theory, Josh soon realizes the attack that took his wife's life was anything but random. Now the two of them must discover the truth about who is after Caitlyn's team--and what their end game is--before it's too late.

“Let me show you how to love and how to be loved. I want to be that person who wakes up beside you every morning, who does the laundry with you, takes out the trash, and builds a home and a family with you.”
Lisa Harris never fails to amaze me with her high-intensity, adrenaline-fueled, action-packed plots and beautifully crafted characters racing against time and enemies to find the solution to a looming threat. Deadly Intentions starts out with a gasp-inducing prologue and the heart-pounding action doesn’t stop until the very end.
Josh, a homicide detective and a recent widower, is dedicated, loyal, and trust-worthy with a straight and narrow view of justice. When Caitlyn, his murdered wife’s friend and colleague, approaches him with a different viewpoint of why his wife may have been killed, his world is thrown off-course. Caitlyn is an intelligent, compassionate, and dedicated scientist who works at a vaccine laboratory but looking for clues as to why several of her colleagues have died recently with sketchy explanations. When they’re both targeted and become victims of violence, they dig deeper to put together the puzzle pieces they hold.
If you enjoy a fast-paced, well-written romantic suspense, you will definitely love this book.

Deadly Intentions by Lisa Harris is a romantic suspense novel.
“There is no such thing as random.”
I would add there is no such thing as coincidence!
Caitlyn Lindsay might have suspicions about the death of three colleagues at MedTECH labs. But what was really the cause of their deaths and why? When she fears for her life, she turns to Detective Josh Solomon, the husband of one of the victims. Can they figure out what is going on before they, too, are silenced?
This was a very suspenseful novel with lots of twists and turns. It kept me guessing until the end. Ms. Harris really knows how to put her characters in jeopardy. An exciting and fast read because I wanted to discover what happened next. Her experience as a victim of a home invasion lends credibility to her writing.
The faith thread, though minimal, gave a very good quote of Caitlyn’s thoughts near the end. “She’d struggled understanding the love of her heavenly Father and had finally come to realize that it wasn’t based on what she did but on what he’d already done for her. The one true sacrificial love.” I wish we could have seen the characters voice their faith a bit more.
This was not my favorite book by Ms. Harris, I questioned the actions of the characters a time or two. Still it had a provocative premise and was a riveting story. I look forward to reading more from this author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher Revell, on behalf of the author. I was not required to give a favorable review. All opinions are my own.
Reviewer: Anna Bottoms
“Deadly Intentions” is a classic example of romantic suspense at its best.
Lisa knows how to craft a story, unfolding just the right amount of mystery and romance to keep the reader engaged and begging for more.
She had me on the edge of my seat, adrenaline pumping right along with Josh and Caitlyn in this story that kept you moving and guessing throughout.
With danger around every corner Josh and Caitlyn must depend on each other. Without knowing who they can trust, and the possibility of a deadly virus on the loose, the only things that remain to be seen are—Will they both come out of this alive? Will they get a second chance at love together?
I highly recommend this book and plan to pre-ordered “The Traitor’s Pawn.”
