The Chase by Lisa Harris {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book for consideration. All thoughts are my own.  

US Marshal Madison James may not be sure who shot her three months ago, but she does know one thing--it's time to get back out into the field. When her partner, Jonas Quinn, receives a message that a federal warrant just came in on a man connected to a string of bank robberies, Madison jumps at the chance to get back to work. What she and Jonas find is a bank robbery in progress that's gone wrong--and things are about to get worse.

For these bank robbers, it's never been just about the money. It's about taking risks and adrenaline rushes, and getting caught is not part of the game. When the suspects escape, Madison and Jonas must hunt them down and bring them to justice before someone else--someone close to them--gets hurt . . . or worse.

From Seattle to the San Juan Islands, bestselling author Lisa Harris takes you on a nonstop chase where feelings are complicated and failure isn't an option.

The Chase is book number two in Lisa Harris' US Marshals series. While I would say that this could be read as a standalone, I think you would definitely get the most out of the story by reading the first book first. The primary storyline--- the string of bank robberies and the consequent chase that takes up much of the story--- is unique to this story with no background required to understand. There is however another background story involving Madison's husband's murder and her own shooting that we learned about in the previous book and seems as though it will carry on throughout the rest of the series as well. The same can be said about the romance in the story as well. While I think enough background is given that you can still enjoy the story on it's own, it's definitely going to allow you to fully appreciate the big picture. 

With a title like The Chase you can expect that this is a book filled with loads of action that will keep you at the edge of your seat. I always find that Lisa Harris does a great job of drawing me into the story, and thi was certainly no exception... there were lots of twists and surprises to keep me guessing... and just enough unanswered questions to have me (impatiently) waiting for the next book in the series to find out what happens next! 

If you enjoy romantic suspense, this is certainly one worth checking out.
