Red Dawn Rising

 Red Dawn Rising by Sue Duffy is the second book in the Red Returning Trilogy.

Twenty-seven-year-old Cass Rodino is a hardworking, dedicated set designer on Broadway. But, like the actors who take the stage every night, she is masking a different reality. Her secrets lie deep within past wounds too severe to expose to anyone.

Evgeny Kozlov has secrets of his own. A former KGB assassin, he is trying to outrun the underground revolution he once served. Trying to right his wrongs, he's in a race against time and against a former colleague, Ivan, who has sinister plans to bring down the United States, including an assassination attempt on famed pianist Liesl Bower.

As Cass and Evgeny separately set out to save Liesl from an impending doom, both are hurled into a fierce CIA/FBI dragnet, not knowing that their formidable opponent--a most unlikely predator--is already closing in on them.

Book 2 of the Red Returning Trilogy, Red Dawn Rising mixes suspense, action, and romance in a tale of personal tragedy and triumph that will keep readers pivoting between the evil desires of world powers and the redeeming powers of personal faith, life, and love. (Goodreads)

The first few chapters of this book got me interested, Cass's character I love and the author did an amazing job with her character. Aside from that, I did not enjoy this book too much. I really wanted to and the first part of the book had me hooked, but my interest could not be held. I really liked the setting and characters but the overall plot of the book was not for me. 

"I received this book from Kregel for free in exchange for an honest review."
