Book Review - Critical Alliance By Elizabeth Goddard


Mackenzie Hanson's special set of skills opened the door to a successful career as a professor of cybersecurity at a Michigan university, allowing her to put her criminal past behind her. But when a long-ago partner in crime delivers a cryptic message about her father's tech company being under cyberattack, she heads for Montana to secure exposed assets, close security breaches, and hopefully save lives.

Diplomatic Security Services special agent Alex Knight is back home in Montana to decompress from a mission gone wrong. But even as he's trying to relax, he's drawn into another mystery, complete with suspicious deaths, lethal threats, and whispers of espionage that all have one thing in common--a beautiful cybersecurity expert with a dark past.

When the situation turns deadly, Alex and Mackenzie will have to work together to find the answers they need--before someone silences Mackenzie for good.

Critical Alliance is book three in the Rocky Mountain Courage Series that is written by Elizabeth Goddard. I have NOT read all the books in the series, but I have been able to follow along with no issues. The author does a good job recapping important information that would have been learned in the first few books. 

Mackenzie is a former cybercriminal. She has put that life behind her and is now a professor in a Michigan college. However, her former partner in crime, Julian has resurfaced to give her a message in regards to her family's company. Information that costs lives. She travels back to her family home in Montana where she sees a blast from her past, Alex Knight. 

Alex is the one that took Mackenzie around for a tour when she applied at the DSS (Diplomatic Security Service). She did not get the job because of her past, and she is worried that Alex may hold that against her. However, she needs his help to find out who is behind the threats.

This book contains a lot of action and suspense. I was fully engrossed in the story within the first few chapters. The book moves at a comfortable pace. I enjoyed the romance building between Mackenzie and Alex. 

Thank you to Revell Reads blogging program for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
