“It’s fine.” Her gaze shifts toward the horizon. “It is nice here. It reminds me of how to enjoy beaches at their most natural state.”
I nod, but I can’t concentrate on the changing shades of blue between the sky and the ocean. All I see is Devetzi’s face.


My Opinion

Trigger Point is a worthy sequel to Major Threat. Once again, Avery Yakushev and Shannon Holmes take turns in tell us about what they feel and how they classify the events. It is a pretty fast paced read with a pleasant flow.

With Trigger Point, Charlotte Raine has created the intriguing second part of The Gun Runner trilogy. Trigger Point is also well balanced; the reader gets a little closer to Avery and Shannon. The author increased the thrill, making me want to immediately proceed with the third instalment. I was drawn into the story right away, an invisible and close acquaintance. Trigger Point is a good read for romantic suspense fans, who like to read short stories with a slow and steady increase of thrill.

This is a very pleasant read, the second part of The Gun Runner trilogy. Recommended!

In brief:

Writing Good
Plot Some twists
Mood Suspenseful
Pace Fast
Characters Developed
Violence Some violence
Sexual content No sexual content
POV First person (alternating)


About the author

Charlotte Raine is the author of several romantic suspense books with more on the way. She worked in marketing and advertising for 15 years before focusing on her true passion, telling great stories. Charlotte gets inspiration for her writing from the scenic but serene mountains around her home in Vail, Colorado.

When she is not writing you will find her after a long day of skiing at one of the many lodges in Vail. She will most likely be next to a warm fire, drinking a glass of wine and telling stories.
