The Survivor By DiAnn Mills * A Review

 Is it her next bestseller . . . Or her last words? In The Chase, award-winning author DiAnn Mills introduced you to the world of Kariss Walker, the bestselling suspense author with a nose for trouble. In The Survivor, Kariss gets the chance to tell her most powerful story yet. But will it revitalize her writing career? Or bring it to a violent end? Kariss meets Dr. Amy Garrett, who survived a brutal childhood attack in which the assailant was never found. Now Dr. Garrett wants her story written in a novel. Kariss wishes she could seek the advice of Special Agent Tigo Harris, but she broke off the relationship a few months prior and seeing him again would be too painful. She interviews Amy and conducts her own research, stepping unaware into danger. Tigo misses Kariss and wants her back, but he understands why she broke off their relationship. Instead, he concentrates on solving a car bombing and bringing the killer to justice. As Kariss's new story attracts an onslaught of danger that she never expected, can Tigo save the woman he loves and find out who wants her dead for writing about an unsolved cold case?

  I really liked The Survivor by DiAnn Mills. I always try to find out who the killer is before the book gets too far along, but couldn’t with this book. It was well hidden and full of surprise and suspense.
  I liked the love story between Tigo and Kariss. It was sweet and an inspiration. They both wanted it to work out between them, but so much baggage and things standing in the way.
  I didn’t much care for Dr. Amy Garrett and her brother. They both seemed full of lies and Amy really seemed fake at times.
  This is book two in the Houston series. I never read book one and was able to read The Survivor without feeling a lot was missing because I didn’t read book one. So The Survivor can be read as a stand alone book.
   I highly recommend The Survivor as a book to read and enjoy. Full of action and suspense and will keep you guessing. I really enjoyed it.
