Blog Tour: Altercation by Tamara Hart Heiner

by Tamara Hart Heiner
First, there was this . . .
(And I loved it!)

Goodreads Blurb:
Detective Carl Hamilton is called out on a homicide case, where the partially decayed body of an unidentified teenage girl is found along a remote highway. . . . Weeks before, Jaci Rivera join her best friends Callie, Sara and Amanda for a night of pizza and shopping. But an evening at the mall turns into a terrifying twist of events that drives Jaci and her friends 2000 miles across the Canadian border.

The girls escape the kidnapper's lair only to find that he has spies and agents working on both sides. They are being hunted, and not even the police can be trusted. . . . And Detective Hamilton is in a life and death race to find the three remaining girls before the kidnapper does.

And NOW, there is this . . .
(And I love it even M-O-R-E!)

Goodreads Blurb:
In this sequel to Heiner's debut novel, PERILOUS, the FBI promises Jacinta Rivera and her friends that they are safe. Jaci wants desperately to believe them but weeks of hiding from their kidnapper, alias "The Hand", have left her wary. Hidden from the public eye in an FBI safe house, Jaci must reconcile both her father's mysterious disappearance and the murder of her best friend.

A betrayal lands Jaci back in the grasp of The Hand, shattering her ability to trust, and leaving her to wonder if she will ever piece together her broken life.

When Tamara gave me the opportunity to participate in this blog tour, I jumped at it. These books are riveting! I couldn't put either of them down once I'd started, and this is a series where the sequel is even better than the first book. I love them. I HIGHLY recommend them. In fact, my school library has already purchased copies of Perilous, and the librarian added Altercation to her to-buy list while she waited for its release. Don't miss out on these ones!

And . . . because she's just that cool, Tamara is offering prizes!!

It sounds like an interesting story! And I really like the covers of both books--both are a little eerie, which is intriguing.
