From the back cover: What you don’t know CAN hurt you.
Travel photojournalist Chloe McConnaughey thought she understood her brother Tate—a brilliant programmer willing to compromise anything to get ahead. She just didn’t know that included her.
When Tate dies unexpectedly, Chloe copes by taking an assignment in the Caribbean where she meets Jack, a charming Manhattan escapee who almost has her believing life could turn around. But the illusion is shattered when a series of bizarre incidents leaves them framed for murder and running from killers convinced that Chloe is the key to questions Tate left behind. Suddenly Jack’s timely entrance into her life seems more than coincidental, but with nowhere else to turn, Chloe must trust this man who is not only charming, but also dangerous, and much better at evading capture than he should be. Strained to the breaking point by a life consistently marked by tragedy, Chloe fights a sense of hopelessness, confronting the age-old question: if it’s not all random—if God does exist—why would He allow bad things to happen to good people?
Hunted from the tiny island of St. Gideon all the way to Miami, Chloe and Jack desperately search for the evidence that will prove their innocence and eliminate them as targets of the shadowy conspiracy that will stop at nothing to make its problems go away.
Let me start out by stating that this is D. J. Wood’s best book to date and this is only her first book. “Unintended Target” is super exciting! Ms. Wood has provided us everything: Suspense, excitement, mystery, thrills, betrayal, lots of questions and life in danger. Just when you think you have some sort of idea of what is going on you find out you were so wrong. Up until I read this book I had no idea of where St. Gideon was or even if there is a St. Gideon. There are people who want to kill her so Chloe is on the run from St. Gideon all the way to Miami and she, and you, have no idea of why except to stay alive. I recommend you go to the bathroom, turn off your phone, make yourself some Sweet Tea and a lot of popcorn, you are not going to want to be interrupted while you are reading this book. Chloe and Jack are fascinating characters that seem very real. “Unintended Target” is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Mr. Wood has provided us with a fairly exciting book. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series!
