Airport Ranger volunteer Stacy Broussard expected a peaceful Saturday morning ride around the perimeter of Houston’s airport. What she encounters instead is a brutal homicide and a baffling mystery. 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.

Suspenseful and downright witty! If you want a simple, quiet night so you can get some shut-eye, don't pick up Deadly Encounter by DiAnn Mills! It will keep you reading through the pages until the very end, even if it's past your bedtime.  That's what happened to me. My first encounter with DiAnn's suspense thrillers, and boy, was I in for a surprise! I was going through the pages so fast, while contemplating what is happening in the story, the hours just flew by.

O, such wit in every character. I love Whitt's highly intelligent responses, Stacy's snarky remarks, Alex' counters and Ric's rationale. I heard myself chuckle and felt myself rolling my eyes at some of the dialogues between these characters. Then the plot itself had me traveling in circles and completely lost as to how and what?! I mean, I knew cute Xena had to have something significant to do with it, but what? And Stacy really who she says she is or is she involved somehow?

Faith messages, along with social issues that are still prevalent in many parts of our country, or rather in every major city were definite present. What makes this a great one is how it connects throughout and what reality is, Christians are humans too and does encounter things they struggle with also. With lots of twists and turns, great personalities and fun dialogue, this is one entertaining read.
