My review:

I loved being back with Holly again!

Cross the Line is the fourth book in the series, and you NEED to read the first three books to have proper context. The Holly series follows a select group of individuals and is best read in order.

I had no idea there was going to be a fourth book in the series, I don't recall the third leaving off on a cliffhanger. However, I am thrilled that this book exists (and it does leave on a minor cliffhanger, so I expect there to be a book five!!).

Holly once again finds herself in danger through no fault of her own. She handles it like she does everything else, immediately jumping in with no thought of the consequences to herself. While she may be impulsive, she is not stupid and is determined to help Hope find her friend. Even in the midst of danger, Holly's spunk and determination shine through. While this could be a heavy read, Holly's mischievous spirit lightens things up.

This is one of my favorite series and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspense with little to no romance in their novels. While this is Christian fiction, it is not preachy or intense. Holly mentions her faith a bit, and it talks of her praying, but again, it is not in your face.

Thank you to C. C. Warrens for providing an e-copy of this book. I am not required to provide a favorable review, but I am happy to do so. All thoughts and opinions are my own.



An unexpected, late-night visitor.
And a missing teenage girl.

Holly’s quiet evening at the investigative agency takes a curious turn when a frantic woman shows up on the doorstep after closing with a tale about a missing prostitute.

With JGH Investigations in financial distress, and a client who can’t afford their services, Holly decides to tackle this investigation on her own time. She soon learns, however, that this missing girl isn’t just missing—she’s been taken. Holly’s questions dredge up more danger than answers, and if she’s not careful, she might disappear just like the girl she’s trying to find, the girl some people believe is already dead.

Determined to keep Holly safe, Jordan joins the investigation, and together, they wade through a world of prostitution, wealth, and lies in search of the truth. But the truth is hard to find, when even the witnesses have secrets.


  1. These suspense books do sound like fun. Sadly, my library doesn't have any of them.

    1. Lark, do you have Kindle Unlimited? They are ALL free on there! If not, maybe you could do a free trial?

    2. I've been looking into getting a Kindle and then signing up for Kindle Unlimited, I just haven't done it yet. But more and more books are going that way, so I probably need to do it sooner than later.

    3. Lark, I understand that. You don't have to have an actual Kindle, you can just get the Kindle app (which is free) and then you could read on your phone. (That doesn't work for me, I don't like reading on my phone, but I wanted to throw it out there in case it works for you!)

    4. That doesn't work well for me either; the screen's too small. ;D

  2. This does sound good! I haven't heard of this author before.

    1. Gretchen, she is fabulous! I love her books!

  3. Thanks for the tip to read the series in order, it sounds really good!

    1. Wendy, the series is incredible! So hard to put down! I read the first three back to back in just a few days.
