I’m participating in the 52 books in 52 weeks challenge again this year, but I have done a terrible job of posting updates. (That means I haven’t posted any.) It’s not because I haven’t been reading, but my personal blogging time has definitely been affected by Baby Boy. And I am a bit behind on my reading too. However, Code of Justice by Liz Johnson is one of the books that I have enjoyed reading this year.

About Code of Justice:

Heather Sloan is an FBI agent on a mission. She’s on a mission to figure out what caused the helicopter crash that killed her sister. Only her mission would be a lot easier if she hadn’t been injured in the same crash. And if she were actually assigned to the case.  But those small details don’t stop Heather. She convinces Jeremy Latham, the Sheriff’s Deputy who is assigned to the case, to let her help him. In the process, they both learn about trusting God because He is just and because He is sovereign.

My thoughts:

This is another book in the Love Inspired Suspense collection. I also enjoyed Vanishing Act, the previous book by the same author. There are several reasons I like these books. They are mysteries, but not too intense or violent. There is romance, but they are clean. (There is some kissing, but that’s as far as it goes.) They are very quick to read, but that’s partly because I can’t put them down once I start. The characters are real and the book is not preachy. I do not like Christian fiction where it feels like religion is tacked on to the story after it was written just so it would fit the genre. If the character’s faith is not an integral part of the story, then please leave it out. If you’re looking for an exciting book that doesn’t keep you awake at night from fear, and with romance that doesn’t make you blush, I recommend Code of Justice. Visit www.lizjohnsonbooks.com for purchasing information and to read the first chapter.

  1. This sounds like a good book, Kristen. I like mysteries, though I am careful about the romantic elements in the fiction I read. This one sounds like I would enjoy it, though.

    I attempted to participate in the 52 Books Challenge last year and did well until summer when we took a trip and our internet was limited. I should try again, but I seem to already be so busy that I just don’t know. 😉

  2. Kristen,
    I’m so glad that you enjoyed Code of Justice! Thanks for your review. Good luck with your 52 in 52!
