Wow! This was such a suspenseful book. Danger Unknown is the first book that I have read by Kathi Oram Peterson and I really enjoyed it! It was a wonderful blend of suspense and romance. I have to admit I was a little worried about reading this book because I get scared easily, but it was a lovely book with just the right amount of suspense at least for me.
Brooke was on the run with her daughter. She was just trying to keep herself and her daughter, Izzy alive. However when everything seems to come crashing down help comes from an unexpected source. Michael Carter has been haunted by his past, but things change when he is awoken from a nightmare by a knock on his door. He finds a small child who leads him to her injured mother. Michael is unexpectedly brought into Brooke’s troubles, where a man is trying to silence her and her daughter. As Brooke and Michael fight to stay alive they find themselves drawing closer to each other. Will they be able to keep each other and Izzy safe or will they become the latest casualty in a deadly conspiracy?
Brooke was just trying her best to survive and protect her daughter. I really felt for her, she found herself in an impossible situation and she was just trying to keep afloat. I liked how Brooke felt real, I was able to relate to her. Brooke was strong but she was also at her wits ends. It was sweet to read about her learning to trust Michael and learning to stand up for herself. Brooke will have to learn to face her fears of the past if she wants to keep her daughter safe.
Micahel was just so kind, I really liked him as a character. He unexpectedly found himself drawn to this mother and child and he was doing his best to help them. His relationship with Izzy was just so sweet, he wanted to keep her safe. It was cute to read about him reaching out to Izzy and trying to break her out of her shell. He was a military man so he knew how to protect others and he was determined to protect Brooke and Izzy. However this situation was bigger than he could have imagined and Michael will need help if he wanted to protect Brooke and Izzy, people who have worked their way into his heart.
I liked how the relationship between Michael and Brooke grew. It did not feel rushed and although it was faster, it made sense because of the circumstances. I liked how they first wanted to help each other and then it grew to love. I was on the edge of my seat while reading this, I needed to know what was going to happen. There were so many surprises and more things just kept on popping up. It was quite an adventure. I also adored Izzy, she was just the sweetest little girl. I felt so bad for her, but I loved reading about her connecting to Michael.
Danger Unknown was a thrilling book and I would definitely recommend it. It is a suspense book so be warned. I would recommend it to those who enjoy lighter suspense if that even makes sense.:) Danger Unknown is a clean suspense book.
