Cantore found the perfect balance for Brinna's character. She was so anti-God and obsessed with her work (which sometimes makes a character easy to dislike). However, she was so personable that I found myself rooting for her early on. Jack was similar. I felt his raw emotions and couldn't help but want the best for him ... even if he was a little "off" at times.
If you enjoy police dramas, I think you'll love Critical Pursuit! [4.5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House in exchange for my fair and honest review.
As a child, Brinna is abducted and left for dead. As an adult, she helps to find abducted. After a shooting on the job, she is transferred to patrol and partnered with Jack- a burned out homicide cop who lost his wife. As they go through shifts and life changing events together in their short two week rotation, they are thrown into a search that turns personal for Brinna. Will Brinna and Jack find God in their search to bring a killer to justice?
This book was really, really good. Like I said I finished it in 24 hours. The author keep you pulled into the story from the first chapter and keeps you guessing throughout the book. With an underlining search for God and also an underlining yearning for the characters to "get with it", the story just keeps going. I had not heard of Janice Cantore before this book but she is now on my author radar. Great for teenagers on up, men and women.

Tyndale House provided a complimentary copy of Critical Pursuit for review purposes. This novel is not the typical book that I normally read; however, I enjoyed accompanying Brinna on her journey to not only rescue children, but also find the peace from God she needed to fully enjoy her life. Janice Cantore did a wonderful job of compelling her audience to stay engrossed in the story. By the end the reader feels triumphant. Janice also inspires those whose relationship with God is stagnant and whose relationship is questioning His will to take a step back and focus on God’s everlasting love and grace.
I liked the characters and seeing them grow as the story progressed. I'm definitely interested in reading the next book with Officer Brinna Caruso, Visible Threat, as Critical Pursuit ended with me wondering what was going to happen next in Brinna's and Jack's life.
Overall, Critical Pursuit was a really good suspense read. There wasn't a lot of romance, but there are hints of it developing. I recommend it to fans of this genre.
