✱✱Book Review✱✱ Accidental Target by Theresa Hall

Accidental Target

by Theresa Hall 


On an icy road in the dead of night

what she sees might get her killed.

Allison Moore can’t deny what she sees—a lifeless hand sticking out of a tarp in the back of a crashed pickup truck. Seconds later, she’s on the run with a murderer on her heels. Nowhere is safe and no one can be trusted…except police sergeant Jackson Archer. But with someone set on silencing her, can Jackson keep his promise of protection?

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

Accidental Target starts out with a bang, which isn't an unusual tool for grabbing a reader's attention, and it works well enough here except that this one feels almost stilted, like the author wasn't quite sure of herself. I'll admit that I was a bit worried about the rest of the book if it was done the same as the beginning. Nevertheless, I kept reading, and things picked up almost immediately and only improved from there. It was as if the beginning was written by someone else or maybe it was added later? Either way, the story picked up considerably and it held my attention all the way through. It was kind of like seeing the author's confidence grow with each chapter.
There is a good mix of rising tension, suspense, and action, and Allison and Jackson are likable and easy to root for. They have good chemistry and Theresa Hall does a solid job of showing the growing feelings between them as well as the growing trust. Granted, the feelings and trust grow faster than they would in real life, but that's the beauty of fiction - All of this happens quick as a whip in a book that can easily be read in an afternoon.
