I can always count on Tanya Stowe for a good suspense read. In Killer Harvest Tanya brings a twist we don’t often see in Christian Suspense – biological terrorism on our agricultural system. What makes it especially scary is the possibility of this being a reality. Thankfully, the good guys win!
I thought it was interesting having two main characters who have been through a divorce. While I can’t speak to the accuracy of dealing with divorce fallout (I’m blessedly married to my first love), I appreciate both characters working through it knowing it is such a common situation in our society. How do you move to a new relationship in a godly way? How do you do this relationship differently then you did before? How do you deal with the past baggage, the fear of failing, the hope for new things? I think Tanya handles these questions well.
My heart melted every time Jared played with Kari. He doubts his abilities to be a good husband and father, but his actions prove that he will be given the chance. He sticks by Sassa without question showing loyalty. But, he’s not perfect. I do wish we would’ve seen more growth as a believer before the very end of the story.
Sassa doubts her abilities after some bad past decisions, but with her team’s and Jared’s belief in her, she gradually builds confidence to overcome such a tough situation and feelings of failure. She is stubborn to a fault, though when it come to lab experiments you have to be to not give up.
One character I wasn’t sure if I liked or didn’t was the lead FBI agent, though I want the opportunity to get t know him better.
I received a copy of this story for the purpose of this tour. I was not required to submit a positive review, all comments are my own.

More from Tanya
As a teenager, I spent my summers water-skiing on the King’s River in Central California. Even though we lived on the coast and the ocean, we traveled inland to the smooth river waters every other weekend for our sport. We camped on a sandy beach, skimmed over the water all day long and at night sat under a sky full of brilliant stars and listened to the sound of the water rippling past. Since we lived on the coast with a heavy marine layer, the amazing sky always fascinated me. Surrounded by massive cottonwood trees, with the smell of ripe fruit drifting toward us, my river experiences were different from home and more than memorable. On some nights we’d hear the splash and laughter as teenagers, somewhere across the river, came down to swim. I always wondered what it would be like to live in the nearby small, neat-as-a-pin town, to know the same people all of my life and to be able to drive down to the river with my friends on any given night. I envied those teenagers and always knew I’d someday write a story about central California. I didn’t know it would involve biological warfare and crazed killers…but that transition is another story all its own! I’ll stop here and hope you enjoy Killer Harvest!

Sounds like a fascinating book. Looking forward to reading it.
I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks for the great review.
This sounds quite interesting. I have been on a farm, or at least gardening to supply most of our family’s vegetables, all my life, so the topic is near to my heart.
Wonderful review! Thank you for participating in the tour.
