About the Book
 
Author: Julie Coulter Bellon
Release Date: September 2012
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
 
Book Description:
 
Ring around the rosy, a pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes we all fall down . . . That simple rhyme turns negotiator Claire Michaels’ current hostage situation into an international incident. Claire just wants to help get everyone out safely, but as the crisis escalates she realizes she’s dealing with an al-Qaeda operative who has the means to become another bin Laden---with the potential to attack America.
 
Claire has her own personal reasons for wanting to stop al-Qaeda, but time is slipping away as negotiations break down. Can she overcome her scars of the past in order to get the hostage out alive and possibly stop an assault on U.S. national security? Navy SEAL Rafe Kelly is on leave to recover from a knee injury he suffered during his tour in Afghanistan and he doesn’t expect to be fighting terrorists on his home turf. But when he is taken hostage and his brother is kidnapped, Rafe teams up with a hostage negotiator in order to stay alive and get his brother back. The terrorist is always one step ahead of them, however, and the situation quickly turns from desperate to deadly. Will Rafe be able to save himself and his country without anyone he loves getting caught in the crossfire?
 
 
My Review:
 
I am new reader to author Julie Coulter Bellon and I have to say that if all of her books are like All Fall Down, then she has a new fan!  All Fall Down is definitely a suspense novel full of action, intrigue and a little bit of romance as well.  The characters are both extremely strong-willed or stubborn shall we say?  It was fun seeing Claire and Rafe's dynamic together when they were both so head-strong.  The book flowed well and I never felt like there was a part that was slow or failing to hold my interest.  I really enjoyed the premise of the book and the action and suspense kept me on my toes throughout!  Four stars!
