An undercover operation is the only way to bring an innocent witness home…

After months searching for a schoolteacher on the run from a criminal gang, CIA operative Josh Sedovich finally finds the innocent beauty in the remotest part of Malaysia. Eager to get Erin Argon home and into protective custody, Josh goes undercover to gain her trust and prove he isn't a threat. And although Erin claims to have witnessed the murder of a very dangerous man, Josh knows there's more to the story than she's letting on. But getting to know Erin—in public and behind closed doors—makes Josh realize just how determined she is to keep the truth hidden. Seems he isn't the only one keeping secrets that could get them both killed…

My Thoughts

Suspect Witness has the right amount of thrill and suspense and I read it in two sittings. I don't want the book to end, to be honest.

Josh Sedovich is assigned to bring home to prime witness to the murder of European billionaire and it was connected to the witness's ex-boyfriend. He thought it would be a case, an assignment, but what he didn't count was growing admiration for her.

Erin Argon thought that she was safe in George Town and she can settle down there for a few months until the person chasing her caught up to her. Her survival instinct forced her to run once again to cover her tracks. Erin is just a common woman and her world turned upside down when she was involved in a murder she accidentally witnessed. She flew away from a place to another.

The unusual setting drew me to this book. I lived in a country close to Malaysia, so I'm curious what the author would bring. It didn't disappoint because I found myself enjoying the chase around the country. Kennie chose the exotic forest as her destination in the country and soon I was hooked.

The beginning of the book had me intrigued even though I have a little bit of hard time getting to know Josh and Erin, but soon I understood and it continued from there.

I recommend this book for people who would love the suspense and thrill.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

About the Author

Saskatchewan is my home and while the prairie landscape is blessed with beautiful blue skies, it also has four seasons that come on full throttle – especially winter. In 2011 I won my city's writing award, and was the first romance writer to do so since its inception. In 2013 my romantic suspense, Fatal Intent, was a semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Awards.

There’s no lack of places to set a story as my imagination and the too long prairie winters may find me seeking adventure. The memories of those worlds both near and far, the words of a stranger, the furtive look one man gives another, often become the catalyst for a suspenseful story with a deadly villain and an intrepid hero and heroine who must battle for their right to love or even their right to live.

When not dreaming of other stories, I can be found scouting out a garage sale or two, dusting off my roller blades or just thinking about the next adventure that may be miles away or in my own backyard.
