Caution: Saving Tampa is highly addictive. You won’t be able to put it down.
Rachel Cunningham has known she has the gift of sight from the very beginning. It is a draining and painful experience because she feels whatever the “victim” feels. After helping Chicago PD catch a serial rapist and mass murderer, she became famous and escaped to Florida for a quieter existence under the radar. But after a man accidentally bumps into her, she sees his malevolent aura and feels thousands of voices screaming in agony. Definitely the worst vision she has ever seen in her life. The gravity of her vision compels Rachel to do something about it. Knowing the authorities will not take her seriously, she calls her brother, a Chicago detective, and he calls the FBI for her.
FBI Special Agent Michael Arrons (Hawk) is not thrilled to be the one assigned to interview Rachel. And upon seeing her, he immediately considers her a bimbo - certainly not the most productive first meeting ever. But after checking on her reference and finding out she’s the real deal, he does not hesitate to own up to his mistakes and eventually believes her.
The FBI and Homeland Security are
dealing with one of the worst terrorists they have on file. An
attack is imminent, and they need to stop him before thousands of
people die, but they do not know what weapon the terrorist will use,
how it is going to happen, and where it is happening. They need all
the help they can get.
If you like James Patterson, then you
will also like Jo Webnar’s similar style. The omnipotent and
omniscient narrator shows us everything that happens, not just a
limited view, consequently pulling us into the story more. This
novel is definitely fast-paced and full of action. Rachel’s and
Hawk’s characters are intricately woven for us. You will definitely
love them. And Saving Tampa is as much a romance novel as it is a
suspense thriller. So, the love that they experience for each other
(even though quick to develop) is not a wham bam kind of deal. Yes,
readers, there is romance in this book. The secondary characters are
as carefully described, as well. The villain is probably one of the
worst you will ever read in fiction. Savor this one-of-a-kind
