He suggests the woman has taken off for a romantic interlude with a sailboat skipper. Given the visible police presence, Jordan doesn’t buy it. Another guest attaches himself to Jordan and Ellie, but his covert activities arouse Jordan’s suspicions. Could he have been involved with the woman’s disappearance?

5.0 out of 5 star s Sherry M Ambrose

Jordan and Ellie embark on a much-anticipated vacation at a resort in Barbados. Ellie seems determined to drink her way through their vacation. Jordan, a Canadian policeman, seems determined to enjoy her travels while keeping an eye out for her friend. They meet a few men who seemed bent on their own agendas. I really enjoyed the interplay between the characters. There was danger, attempted kidnaps as well as a hint of a future between the characters. It surprised me how fast this story went. An excellent read.

A fun, chick mystery. I enjoyed reading this as a respite from some heavy spy books I'd been devouring lately. It's a good change of pace. I would enjoy these characters if it were made into a series, too.

This is a fun frolic in the Caribbean for two Canadian women who are looking for smooth drinks and warm waters, fleeing the cold climes of their native Canada. The two friends are very different, and the interplay between them is fun. You will enjoy this novella, I guarantee it.

5/5 stars. Terror in the Caribbean!

By Liz Lindsay on Nov. 28 2015

Format: Paperback

This thriller has it all. An exciting ride to a beautiful Carribean resort. Blue sea and sky and sizzling sandy beaches, handsome men, and those mojitos are to die for. Likeable, well thought out characters had me zipping along with this tension-filled​ story. I stayed up until the early morning hours to read the conclusion. Hope to see more of Piermont and Blair.

4.0 out of 5 stars. "Don't wander alone..." A tightly paced thriller.

By Cheryl R Cowtan on March 3 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

"Targeted" is a tightly paced thriller that takes place at a Honduras resort where Canadian tourists, Jordan and Ellie arrive, hoping for peace and relaxation.
The story's tension starts the minute the girls exit the plane to stand, unknowingly, in the view of a character peeping at them through binoculars.

This book succeeds in a number of ways. The authors, Warner and Ferris, are obviously well traveled and use description to immerse us in a much-needed island getaway with limbo dancing and boat deck parties in international waters. These fun-loving scenes function as clever juxtaposition to make the threat against the women even more chilling.
Secondly, the two female characters could not be more different, with cool-thinking Jordan wishing she was wearing her service revolver with her bathing suit, and fun-loving, barely-keeping-her-clothes-on, Ellie who is getting her money's worth from the all-inclusive drinks. The girls have an interesting and amusing dynamic as they work as a team, whether in navigating social pick-ups or attempting to survive criminal highjacks.
"Targeted" is an entertaining book that could easily be read on the journey to your next island vacation, but be warned, you'll be looking over your shoulder after you're done.
