This is the first time I have posted a review on Sunday
About the book (provided by Amazon)
A missing man.
A mysterious computer program –
Even the people constructing it don’t know what it will do.
On the worst night of Harvey Larson’s life, his partner is killed and his wife, Carrie, walks out on him. Ten years later, the Portland, Maine police detective has learned to cope with his grief and depression. When he and the Priority Unit investigate the disappearance of software designer Nick Dunham, he meets a young woman who will change his life. Jennifer Wainthrop was the last person to admit seeing Dunham alive.
Harvey and his partner, Eddie Thibodeau, stay a step ahead of a bomber and put together the clues that tell the truth: Dunham’s kidnapping and the bombings are one case, and Jennifer is caught in the middle. News that Carrie has committed suicide may plunge Harvey back into despair. Harvey turns to God for help untangling his complicated life. He finds strength in his faith as he attempts to save Jennifer from the same grim fate that claimed Nick. But Jennifer must depend on her own wits and God alone when the killer gets too close

And I thought...
I did some thinking about this one. The Priority Unit is a Christian Romantic Suspense title.
The thing that had me thinking was that the main characters were not 'Believers'. They were 'Seekers'. I have never run across a book 'Christian' or 'Inspirational' book where the main characters were not already Believers. Most of the stories I have read have had the characters at least one in more of a fallin' away type of existence.
It took me awhile to decide how I really felt about the 'Seekers'.
I don't say this in a bad way at all just a questioning manner much like the characters are seeking answers with their questions about God.
The more that I've thought about this I feel like The Priority Unit
is a wonderful story and possibly one of the best approaches to introducing someone to a 'real' relationship with Christ that I've ever seen/read.
I enjoyed the characters. I enjoyed the plot. It was a bit slow in the beginning (the first few chapters) but once it picked up I was drawn in for a fast and furious ride. The ride takes the reader through car bombing(s), missing persons, espionage and drug dealers.
All the plots and subplots worked together for a suspenseful
story with twists and turns and a happy ending!
I especially enjoyed going to church for the first time with
Harvey and Jennifer and seeing their eyes open as they are introduced to God.
The Priority Unit was a great book. I am anxiously waiting to read more in the series.
Coffee With A Character...
The character that I would most like to have coffee with is
Harvey. His character starts out lonely and sad after his divorce. As the story unravels and he begins 'investigating' God
he begins to learn to be happy and basically return to 'real living'.
He is a 'real' good guy before God. And then after. We'll have to wait for Book 2.
The Character I want to meet again ...
This is a new prompt/topic for my reviews. I enjoyed
Carrie's (Harvey's ex-wife) grandmother. She is delightful character. In a few short pages she captured my heart. I am sure we will capture yours.
I received a complimentary copy from the author.
Thank you Susan Page Davis for introducing me to your world
