About the Book

Book:  Sprinkled with Sabotage

Author: Allison Pearl

Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense

Lizzy Bennet loves life as a lawyer in the city. And not just because of the miles it puts between her and her ex. However, when she’s attacked on the street just hours after learning her identity was stolen, she tries to call home for help and ends up with the last person she expects: the very same high school boyfriend who broke her heart. He says he’s there to help, but she’s not so sure, and now, all the endless questions and regrets are clouding her judgment and preventing her from seeing the dangerous saboteur closing in.

Small-town auto mechanic, Koby Knightly, is looking forward to seeing a car show in the city. But when an unexpected call from his old girlfriend disconnects suddenly, he rushes to her apartment only to find her limping and bleeding. Throwing his plans out the window, Koby makes it his mission to protect her and discover the identity of the person trying to frame her. Will he also be able to figure out what went wrong between them back in high school or will a killer get to her first?

Doughnuts and Suspense: Now’s the Time


In a lot of ways, this pandemic season we are in is encouraging. Quarantined families are spending time together that sports, events, and the demands of normal everyday life wouldn’t otherwise have allowed. Churches are finding new and creative ways to connect with people and share hope. Stories of mind-blowing generosity are popping up on social media all the time. Yes, there’s a lot to be excited about.

But in a lot of other ways, this all sucks. Domestic violence. Drug addiction. Unemployment. Their numbers are all up. And on top of that, hundreds and thousands of people have died from this coronavirus.

We’re all doing our best to hang in there. But you know what, it’s okay to not be okay. And it’s okay to do something for yourself. Do it now. Do it five minutes ago. We’ve all earned it. Don’t stress about the COVID 15 creeping up your bathroom scale. Go get a doughnut. Get two. And then pour yourself a coffee and sit down with a book and escape. Worry about what’s going to happen in a made-up person’s life for a few minutes instead of what new catastrophe is about to drop. Escape into those I-didn’t-see-that-coming moments. Pick up a suspense that will beg you to keep turning the pages and spend an evening in a comfy chair reading chapters instead of headlines. God can handle the news. You handle you.

Above all, I want Sprinkled with Sabotage and the whole Love and Danger in St. Claire series to give you a break and the comfort that faith brings. Enjoy!


If you are looking for a story that is intriguing, full of adventure, a bit of romance and guides characters with faith, then this is the book for you. The author defines her characters very well and instantly I liked where the story was going. It was easy to connect with the plot and held my attention throughout.

Lizzy is a gifted lawyer who has worked very hard to achieve her status at the law firm. Everything seems to be going well until an attack on her life shakes her to the core. Why is she being targeted? Does she know something that puts her in danger? Her character has come into question  and thus begins the cat and mouse game to prove her innocence. 

Koby is someone that you are drawn to by his quiet but strong moral character. The last thing he ever expected was to get a call from his ex Lizzy crying out for help. Cue the knight in shining armor. This little detour will change their lives as Lizzy looks to Koby to help her. Now I can’t tell you much more because what would be the fun in that? The author does  a great job of keeping readers guessing as the action never stops. 

Lizzy can’t catch a break as she is constantly in danger. While  I loved the intrigue, I really enjoyed the background story between Lizzy and Koby. One tragic night separated these two years ago. A misunderstanding that grew into a wall built between their feelings cost them a relationship. Koby has carried around guilt for years, while Lizzy  has let anger fester into detachment from any real relationship with anyone. 

As the author explores this moment in time, we see how faith works its way to soften hearts that leads to forgiveness. I loved how Lizzy tries to communicate with Koby but I think her pride keeps her from letting the past go. Not only is the story filled with suspicious characters but there is an underlying theme of forgiving and being set free from the past. 

I loved how the author surprised me with the ending and I never once suspected how the guilty person was connected to Lizzy and Koby. I appreciate the action and how people came together to stop a dangerous person. Overall a great story with just enough intrigue to keep readers guessing til the end. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
