About the Book

Book: Certain Threat

Author: Kimberly Rose Johnson

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: October 6, 2020

Katrina White’s garage explodes and she fears someone is out to get her.

Not long after Katrina overhears two people talking about robbing the bank where she works, her attached garage explodes. With the help of her neighbor, Frank Davis, she escapes the burning home after a storage shelf falls over, trapping her beneath it.

The co-owner of Protection Inc. has one thing on his mind for the week of Christmas—rest and relaxation, but when his favorite neighbor needs his help he calls in his team. Unable to turn their backs on someone Frank clearly has feelings for, the co-owners agree to help out Katrina.

When things escalate, Frank is certain of two things—he cares a lot for Katrina and he can’t let anything happen to her.

Join the team of Protection Inc. this Christmas where love is in the air even in the midst of danger.

My Review 

I enjoyed this contemporary romantic suspense. Johnson's writing style is straight forward and easy to read. There are no confusing plot twists. The character interactions and dialogue are good. The romance is done well with one developing in this novel and another expanding from a previous novel. I appreciate the setting, especially Warm Beach. Having been there many times, I do wish Johnson would have included more description, such as glimpses of the snow capped Olympic Mountains across the sound.

This is a good book for readers who like a straightforward novel with a clear plot and understandable characters. You will not be distracted by clever literary techniques but will find a good spiritual message tucked inside.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

Certain Threat was one of my favorite books to write. There are three point of view characters. Two have been in the series from book one and the third is a new addition in this book.

I adore Frank, the hero of this book. The man is tough, honest, and always does his best to do the right thing. He’s a good example for his younger business partners who like to do things their own way, especially Carissa.

For me the most fun part about writing this book was getting inside Frank’s head. He comes across as tough and sometime gruff, but he is a marshmallow on the inside when it comes to Katrina, his neighbor. Katrina brings out a side in Frank we haven’t yet witnessed and it was a blast to write—no pun intended. LOL you’ll understand when you read the book.

I look forward to writing future books in this series and going deeper with the rest of the Protection Inc. team and their friends.

What do you mean by this? "Having been there many times, I do wish Johnson would have included more description, such as glimpses of the snow capped Olympic Mountains across the sound."

It does sound like a book I would enjoy! Thank you for the review. It is what I look for when I am researching another read.
