Book Review – Disillusioned

Disillusioned by Christy Barritt



About the book:

Nikki Wright is desperate to help her brother, Bobby, who hasn’t been the same since escaping from a detainment camp run by terrorists in Colombia. Rumor has it that he betrayed his navy brothers and conspired with those who held him hostage, and both the press and the military are hounding him for answers. All Nikki wants is to shield her brother so he has time to recover and heal.

But soon they realize the paparazzi are the least of their worries. When a group of men try to abduct Nikki and her brother, Bobby insists that Kade Wheaton, another former SEAL, can keep them out of harm’s way. But can Nikki trust Kade? After all, the man who broke her heart eight years ago is anything but safe…

Hiding out in a farmhouse on the Chesapeake Bay, Nikki finds her loyalties—and the remnants of her long-held faith—tested as she and Kade put aside their differences to keep Bobby’s increasingly erratic behavior under wraps. But when Bobby disappears, Nikki will have to trust Kade completely if she wants to uncover the truth about a rumored conspiracy. Nikki’s life—and the fate of the nation—depends on it.


My thoughts:

This book has it all – Action-packed, nail-biting suspense!

Mystery and intrigue from the very beginning!

Nikki is doing all she can to save her brother Bobby, who is being accused of being a terrorist, and is wanted by all the high ranking government officials and law enforcement officers.

She has to face issues from her past, and try to figure out–who is after them?! Who is determined to frame Bobby?

Bobby just recently escaped from Colombia, where he’d been held hostage, but who was responsible? And why?

Nikki quickly became my favorite character. Her strength, determination, loyalty, and courage in the face of danger was a challenge to me.
This story was one I did not want to put down, and had unexpected twists and turns until the last page!

This is the second book in a three book series, and I’ve loved the entire series. I think, though, that the third book, Distorted, was probably my favorite of them all. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the fact that I listened to the audio version or not…I’ve found that if a book is done well, I almost enjoy it more that way…

Anyway, if you haven’t yet tried any of Christy Barritt’s books, and if you enjoy Christian suspense, I encourage you to give them a try! She has at least two other series available on Amazon, the one is called Hidden Currents series, and then there is another series called Squeaky Clean series.
