    One thought on “Undercover Target”

    1. I read the first book, Undercover Saint, and really enjoyed it, so I was excited to see what this author could come up with next. I didn't realize that this story is about some of the characters from Book 1; it can stand alone, although it is handy to know the backstory. This story really hit home for me in some ways. Matt and his wife, Hope, have adopted a brother and sister from an orphanage in China and after a couple of years, they're still trying to adjust to their teenage son, Peng, and hi [...]

    2. From the moment I opened up the book, I was entranced. When I had to go to work, I kept thinking of what would happen next and if I would be able to read any on my break. But as a nurse in a hospital a break just doesn’t happen, darn! I wished I had known there was another story before this book about Hope and Matt. It doesn’t have to be read first but I would have liked to have read their story first.This story is from the moment they adopt 2 children from China. One a baby girl (Jin), and [...]

    3. I'm tired, so this may be a short reviewbut this was a really good book! I enjoyed it definitely as much as the first book, but there were definitely different themes and tones. I loved that despite it having a little bit of a darker tone to it, there was still plenty of humor.I was a little bit confused about the actual plot at the end and what had actually happened, but that was probably because there was a week or so break between me reading most of the book and then finishing it, so I'm not [...]

    4. This new release is a fast paced, thrilling, on the edge of your seat story! There was suspense and drama in every chapter with lots of twists. I couldn't put the book down until I read the entire thing! The book had a steady, fast paced plot and all the characters were well written and most of them were likable. There were times I gasped and other times I laughed because some of the characters had spunk and determination. I wouldn't recommend this book to young adults due to the violence, but i [...]

    5. What a fantastic story. I was hooked from the first page and had a hard time putting it down. The tension and suspense kept me on the edge the entire time. Everything from the adoption to the campout to the explosive battle at the end was extremely well done. Each character had a very unique, believable personality that planned an important role in the story. This is an exciting read that any and everyone would love, especially those suspense, adrenaline junkies, thriller people out there. I wil [...]

    6. Great suspense/ mystery book that is action packed and very entertaining. Loved the continued characters from "Undercover Saint."

    7. This book is a great read for YA and Adults, alike! It would be  a fun book to read as a family, Book Club, or to a classroom of students.As a former undercover agent, Matt Knight, has faced his biggest challenge yetFatherhood! After adopting two children from a foreign country, the eldest child tests his parental skills which he feels deficient in anyway. In addition to being Peng's father, he also teaches him in Sunday youth meetings. Now, he is being asked to go on the "high adventure" scou [...]

    8. I really need to rate this 4.5 stars. I think Holdaway is my new favorite author. I don't think this book is as good as the first one, but it was still a page turner. It did became a coming of age book, he was working on 15 year old boys after all and saw the boys grow from their time at scout camp and what happened their. Loved the many twist in the plot, they kept me interested in the story. As intense as the book was, it had many comic relief lines. And boys will be boysete with Easy Cheese.

    9. Even funnier then the first book. The suspense in is one keeps you guessing throw to the end. This is author is very talented!

    10. Not as funny as the first book with some more serious action/bad guy interaction but a good clean thriller! Some of those Utah scout trips are just as dangerous, I'm sure :)

    11. A retired FBI anti-terrorist agent, Matt is living under the radar as a college professor. What he doesn't know is that there is a contract out for him and his family. The main characters from the first book play a part in this one, so I would recommend reading Undercover Saint before reading this one.A fast paced book that pits good versus evil.

    12. Title: Undercover TargetAuthor: Frank HoldawayPages: 258Year: 2016Publisher: Covenant Communications, Inc.My rating is 5 stars.Matt Knight is a retired antiterrorist special agent. Not many know of his past and he likes it that way. He now lives with his wife as well as their two children whom they adopted from China. They live close to Zack’s former boss and current bishop in the Mormon faith, Zack. One of the events at church is an annual camping outing of Matt’s Sunday School class of tee [...]

    13. This book caught my attention from the very beginning. I love the way that the author writes. There were several parts that caused me to laugh out loud, I loved the way that humor was included in this type of book, it's especially helpful in a tense scene.I liked Matt, he's an ex-antiterrorism agent, doing his best with his family. He's got an amazing wife, Hope, who always knows just what should be done. He's got a 15 year-old adopted son, Peng, who is an escape artist and that Matt really does [...]

    14. It has been long enough ago that I read book one in this series--yes, this is book 2 in the series even though it doesn't show it on or on the book itself. I liked this story. It is basically Mormon fiction without the romance and it did have its share of action and adventure. I have a friend who is always on the lookout for LDS fiction without the romance so here it is.

    15. I'm impressed with both the quality of the writing and the plotting in Undercover Target. Frank Holdaway pulls the read into the story right away as the reader meets Matt and Hope through the eyes of Peng, a young Chinese orphan who is spying on them as they adopt his little sister, Jin. He does not expect them to take him too, but they do. But Peng has his own set of baggage that creates barriers between him and his new family. On top of that but Matt is about to discover that his past as an an [...]

    16. Frank Holdaway is a new author for me, but one I'll be keeping an eye on. Matt Knight (the MC; although the most compelling character for me was Peng, Matt's adopted son) is LDS, so there are references to his church and his faith. Lots of violence with this one and a few things that people did when they were physically compromised that I just didn't buy. (But that may be because I'm a couch potato and it's just too far out of my realm of experience.) I thought it was also a little weird that th [...]

    17. Once I started this book, it was hard to put down. I didn't realize this was the second book, so there must be some relationship development that I may have missed. That was the part I struggled with the most. It was violent. But the storyline and the messages of hope and family are pervasive and encouraging.

    18. Matt is a retired spy who finds and uncovers terrorists. The family of two terrorists that were killed have come for revenge on Matt. They have kidnapped his wife, daughter Jin, friend Permelia and bishop Zack. They are also trying to kidnap Matt and his son Peng while on a scouting trip in the woods.Things go very bad for the kidnappers when everyone is fighting for their freedom.

    19. Adventure at it's bestI gave this a five star rating because it has adventure,humor,suspense,bad guys and good guys, spyders, (spelling intended) gadgets, and a some good life lessons.

    20. This is an LDS story written by an LDS author. It was an enjoyable read, not too indepth, but enough action and intrigue to hold my interest. Recommend to LDS readers of intrigue and some action.
