Welcome to the Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt! If you’ve just discovered the hunt, be sure to start at Stop #1, and collect the clues through all the stops, in order, so you can enter to win one of our top 5 grand prizes!

       For those of you who don't know me, my name is Lisa Harris. I'm a USA Today best selling author who has written everything from romantic suspense to medical thrillers and apocalyptic stories, and coming this June, a brand new psychological suspense series! You can learn more about me and all my books here on my site and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. 


      Apprehending fugitives as a part of the US Marshals' elite SOG team gives Deputy US Marshal Tucker Shaw the purpose and drive he needs to fight the demons from his past. When he’s called out to track down a group of endangered children, he has no idea how drastically his life is about to change. The mother of one of the missing girls, Riley Bishop, has credible evidence on who is behind her daughter's disappearances, but the situation quickly spirals out of control with a final shocking twist that has Tucker questioning everything he knows to be true.


I     If you've ever read a psychological thriller, you know that it's the twists and turns that make this genre so addicting. One of the unique features of these stories is the unsettling voice of an unreliable narrator--a character whose point of view can't be trusted. Often these books are told in first person, because that gives the reader a chance to be able to delve deeper into the mind of the character.

But are you really seeing the truth?

The problem is that the characters might be deliberately deceiving the readers, or the characters might actually be the ones deceived. Psychology plays a fascinating part in this. What happens when our unconscious mind bends our perception of what is real, and even tries to fill in the gaps, making it possible to perceive things that aren’t really there? Think of an amputee who still feels his missing leg, or how it’s possible to see patterns in chaos. Memories are sprinkled with gaps, and we can fill in those gaps with our own created recollections. These can all be a part of the unique role of an unreliable narrator--and a fascinating ride for the reader. 

Here’s Your Critical Stop #18 Info:

If you're interested, you can pre-order The Lies We Believe just in time for its release on June 28th on Amazon. It will be available as an ebook, paperback, and kindle unlimited!

Sunday Praise


It’s hard to imagine that it took Noah approximately one hundred years to build the ark. Talk about perseverance! And in the midst of his building the ark, he was constantly ridiculed by those around him. In fact, Noah and his family were the only ones God saved because mankind had become so corrupt that wicked men had become heroes among the people. 

Have you ever thought about what kind of faith did Noah had to have to hang in there for so long? In order to persevere, Noah had to hold tightly to his faith. And it had to be strong, solid, and enduring. I love this verse from Colossians that talks about the importance of faith in order to have a solid foundation.

"Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness." Colossians 2:7 

Question for today: What does it mean to you to endure?

Sunday Praise

Even when we’ve made our decision to put our full trust in God, there are still times when things go wrong and God seems far away. The world we live in is broken. People are hurting from unemployment, hunger, loneliness, broken homes and broken marriages. 

When I start worrying and doing things my way, my faith begins to falter, and I start to wonder if He’s still in control. So how do we hold strong in the middle of a storm? 

Through the work of the Holy Spirit and the study of His word, God allows our faith in Him to grow and mature even in the face of trials and disappointment. (From Finding Hope in a Chaotic World) 

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise.” Hebrews 10:23
