Hi Readers! Happy Monday 🙂
I am honored to be a part of Lisa Harris’s launch team for her latest masterpiece, The Chase. So without further ado, let me take you to the streets of Seattle as we join US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn on The Chase — Let’s go!

From The Back Cover
US Marshal Madison James may not be sure who shot her three months ago, but she does know one thing–it’s time to get back out into the field. When her partner, Jonas Quinn, receives a message that a federal warrant just came in on a man connected to a string of bank robberies, Madison jumps at the chance to get back to work. What she and Jonas find is a bank robbery in progress that’s gone wrong–and things are about to get worse.
For these bank robbers, it’s never been just about the money. It’s about taking risks and adrenaline rushes, and getting caught is not part of the game. When the suspects escape, Madison and Jonas must hunt them down and bring them to justice before someone else–someone close to them–gets hurt . . . or worse.
From Seattle to the San Juan Islands, bestselling author Lisa Harris takes you on a nonstop chase where feelings are complicated and failure isn’t an option.
What Did I Think?
The Chase is book two of the US Marshals series and I would definitely recommend reading book one, The Escape, first because this book is a continuation of that story. The story starts about twelve weeks after the events of the first book and Madison James is excited to finally be able to return to work (she was recovering from a gunshot wound); however, she wasn’t expecting to be called to assist with a bank robbery which has also become a hostage situation. Madison and her partner, Deputy US Marshal Jonas Quinn are able to get into the bank undetected, but that’s where things start to go wrong. After a diversion allows the robbers to escape, Jonas and Madison must race against the clock to locate all four of the robbers… before they disappear for good.
I have been waiting for this book for almost a year and I was not disappointed! This book is filled with so much action and suspense that it was almost impossible to put down. Seriously, I had no idea that a chase could contain so many twists and turns! I love that Lisa Harris continued the story of Madison and Jonas and I was amazed at how much both of them grew by the end of the story. Another part that stuck out to me was how Jonas was living with the guilt of his past, when his former partner didn’t hold it against him. I love that he was able to reconcile things with his partner, but was also heartbroken by what happened to her. Overall this book did a great job reminding me of why I love reading Lisa Harris’s books and although it was a bit of an emotional roller coaster, I would recomend this book to anyone who likes Romantic Suspense. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars!
