Kurzbeschreibung

Following a whirlwind romance and impromptu wedding, Sara is whisked off to her husband’s palatial family estate in Bolivia. Cultural differences and family adjustments are no match for her fierce love for Nicolás. But Sara soon opens a Pandora’s box of questions surrounding the Cortéz family’s billion-dollar business, becoming ensnared in a deadly clash between her new family, a drug cartel, and the DEA.

Driven by heart-pounding drama and supported by compelling realism and precise detail, Jeanette Windle catapults readers into an all-too-real world of intrigue and danger . . . captivating and mesmerizing from first page to last.

With explosive drama, adventure, suspense, and meticulous attention to detail, Jeanette Windle lives up to her reputation as “the Tom Clancy of Christian fiction."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unparalleled Excellence 19. Juni 2003
Von Kelli Standish - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It is no coincidence that so many reviewers of this book give it a five star rating. After reading literally thousands of fiction books, it is fair to say I am tough to impress. But Jeanette Windle has done so, and done so with a style and flair that assures 'Crossfire' a permanent place in my library and on my highest recommendations list.
Her research is impeccable. Her characters believable. Her plot and subplots faultless.
You open the first page and suddenly, you're there- surrounded by the cries of foreign birds, angry men and a endearing heroine. Each page draws you further into the tension and the complexity that is the South American drug trade. And then you begin to understand. Not just one side, but all side's emotions as they face off over the age-old moral question: Am I my brother's keeper?
And the hours Windle must have put into the creation of this 600 page masterpiece! It boggles the mind.
After finishing 'Crossfire', I have only two regrets.
One is that she chose a smaller publishing house for this excellent work. A publisher like Tyndale or Bethany House could have given her the advertising and promotion budget she deserved and expanded her reader volume to a level worthy of her skill.
The second is that even at 600 pages it seemed over too soon. I was so delighted with the ending that I re-read it three times. Rarely have I seen a writer end a book in such a powerful, absolutely satisfying manner.
'Crossfire' is, without question, a must read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good--but... 26. Juni 2007
Von me - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
OK--I really enjoyed this book simply because I have lived in Latin America for many years. For the reviewer who was upset about the portrayal of the Catholic church--well let's just say that the Catholic Church as it is represented in South America is just like this. It is not the Catholic church that American's know. Sorry--but it is true and not just bias on her part.

The only real problem I had with the book was just how "naive" Sara was. Yes--men can be charming and sweep you off your feet, etc. etc., but there comes a time during this book where you just want to reach in and grab her and say "Wake Up! This guy is NOT Prince Charming!"

The details were precise--which if you are familiar with the territory makes this book interesting, if you aren't then you probably get bogged down and want to skip a few pages now and then.

All in all, good but a bit long.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must read! 13. April 2002
Von Aleshia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you like action and adventure laced with romance and a wondeful christian theme, then this book is a MUST READ! The characters are very believable, and the plot extremely gripping.
Sarah is a christian, though she's become luke-warm over the years. In college she meets the amazing Nicky, and falls head over heals in love. They marry and he wisks her away to his family estate in Bolivia where Sarah's met with one shocking revelation after another. She soon realizes how little she knows about her husband. Her plans of a romanic, wealthy life with Nicky are devasted when she discovers that the family is secretly dealing cocaine to remain the extremely wealthy, upper class citizens they are. Sarah has some major, life altering decisions to make. Can she bring herself to uncover this major drug operation, putting her new marriage on the line? Is her husband's enemy, Doug Bradford, DEA Agent, the terrible man her husband paints him out to be, or is he really the trustworthy, christan man he appears?
This book is amazing, and packed out with great action scenes, and shocking plot twists. Jeannette Windle has an amazing way of bringing you right into the book. You feel as if you are experiencing everything Sarah does. The scenes are powerful and very believable. I highly, highly recommend this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Engrosing! 29. Mai 2002
Von Kari Watson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is one of the books that I will forever keep among my top favorites! Extremely well written, well developed characters, well researched details. The scenes are vivid and the characters lived in my imagination for days after I was finished with the book. Jeanette Windle casts a beautiful love story that keeps proper and moral restraint in the midst of a fast paced thriller. I couldn't give this book a higher rating! Read it- you'll LOVE it!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Slow, not fast enough 6. Juli 2007
Von Anonymous - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Crossfire has an ingenius plot, very interesting. A young lady, Sara, is unexpectedly swept into a whirl of emotions for a man, Nicolas, she's only known for three weeks. The impromptu marriage proposal on Nicolas's part causes you to doubt already Sara's positive answer. She is whisked off to Bolivia after their quick wedding, and there she is caught in a whirlwind of events. Sara finally finds out her husband is involved in drug business, and feels betrayed, but at the same time guilty. She realizes how unmoral her husband is and regrets her decision to marry him. Her life is almost taken numerous times, but manages to escape under God's protection. Sara is forced to enlist the aid of DEA agent, Doug Bradford with a past of his own. This is where I disagree. Sara is married and she's looking for Doug as a friend. Something is wrong. Well her husband becomes dead at an attempt to save her life from his father. So now she's free to marry whom she wants, but that's saved for the next book, Firestorm. The reason I rated it so low was because it was written very feminine, which is understandable, but very unnecessarily descriptive. You always want to shout sense into Sara, frustrated at her actions of stupidity. And her longing to become friends with Doug when she is a married woman. Overall the plot was interesting, but could've been better written.
