Mistaken Reality by Traci Hunter Abramson - ADVISABLE

Mistaken Reality by Traci Hunter Abramson, 312 pages. Covenant Communications, 2019. $15.

Language: G (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG13; Violence: PG13



A terrorist attack brings all hands on deck -- FBI, CIA, undercover agents, and even a civilian -- to find the people responsible. The civilian, Hadley, should have been able to continue with her normal life after being saved by FBI-agent JD, but she is more tangled in the dangerous web than anyone suspected. Will the terrorists be stopped so that everyone can return to their normal lives? Will “normal” even be possible?

Reading this story started our very confusing, mostly because Abramson writes from several different points of view and the pieces don’t seem to be part of the same puzzle in the beginning. Once I got all the characters straight, I loved reading how all the pieces did fit together -- impossible as it first appeared. However, sometimes I felt left out by the obvious history there is between the characters. I suspect that those relationships and stories are told in one of Abramson’s other series, but I nothing explicit says that. Reading Abramson’s other books is not necessary to enjoy this one, but I would have been a little less confused and annoyed at parts if I understood what the characters were referencing all the time. The mature content and violence ratings are for mentions of human trafficking, other illegal activities, and gun shooting.
