    1. Title: SILENT NIGHT STANDOFFAuthor: Susan SleemanPublisher: Love Inspired SuspenseNovember 2014ISBN: 978-0373446339Genre: Romantic SuspenseHOSTAGE SITUATION When armed robbers strike her bank, hostage negotiator Skyler Brennan's life is on the line.

    2. I absolutely love reading Susan Sleeman stories. Her books always bring an underlying theme about faith that anyone can use in any situation. This story revolves around Skyler Brennan and Logan Hunter who have a history that hasn't ended well. Skyler fell in love with Hunter years ago, but he walked out on their relationship so he could fulfill his dreams of making his father proud of his accomplishments. After an intense hostage situation Skyler and Hunter meet again in the line of duty as offi [...]


    3. Exciting start to what looks to be a fantastic new series. I love how the author takes the time to set up the characters who will 'star' in the next books. There's such camaraderie amongst Skyler's squad. Kindred spirits in a self-made family. And take a look at the cover. Waitn't that a fire station in the picture? But this is a book about an FBI agent and a deputy sheriff so how does that book cover fit? Perfectly. Uber cool, actually. You'll have to read Silent Night Standoff to find out why. [...]


    4. I love suspense and I love romance, wrap them together and I'm in book heaven! I enjoyed both of the main characters. At first Logan wasn't very likeable because of his drive to impress his father with his career advancements, but as the story unfolded and he began to realize how much Skyler meant to him, he became much more likeable to me. Skyler was definitely more grounded in her faith than Logan, but she had issues as well. Having been ignored by her parents as a child and Logan abandoning h [...]


    5. Great start to what's sure to be an epic series! Love the premise of the first responders living in a restored fire station. Can't wait to see them all get happy endings :) loved the characters and thought the distrust was very realistic and understandable given the hurt she endured from him years ago. Another winner from Susan Sleeman!



    6. Great Suspense This has been a great series. I sort read this one out of sequence , but because I read the other books the characters were still the same. I look forward to reading the last book in this series. I would recommend reading Ms. Sleeman books.


    7. I came across Susan Sleeman during a Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt, I believe, and recently discovered the opportunity to read her new release Silent Night Standoff and decide if I would be a good fit for her street team "Partners in Crime". I finally picked up the book Sunday night after having it for about two weeks or so - while I got caught up on other obligations (other book reviews among them).I noticed in the "ad" that this was A Love Inspired Suspense book - that helped me take the pl [...]



    8. Father's Blessing vs. Faithful LoveFans of Dee Henderson will enjoy this series by Susan Sleeman. First book in the First Responders series, the starkness of the first sentence creates immediate tension that builds upwards as the crisis ensues. Skyler Brennan is a hostage negotiator that finds herself by chance in the middle of a robbery by a dangerous couple dubbed "Bonnie and Clyde." While Skyler has a team of co-workers who are surrogate family, more tension is introduced when her former boyf [...]


    9. I love watching those one-hour procedural police dramas on TV. I don't enjoy seeing the "blood and such" but I enjoy the "edge of your seat" tension and cutting edge technology they use to solve the case. THAT'S why I love Susan's books. She produces the same feelings in me! I know when I open one of her books, I will be taken on a fast-paced ride of some kind and I probably will be unable to put down the book for long! Such is the case with Silent Night Standoff. Skyler is just minding her own [...]


    10. Silent Night Standoff rings all the right bells as a holiday romance. With strings of lights and charity events woven throughout the story, love is the bedrock of the plot on many levels. Forgiveness is just as important to the romantic element of the story as the action that flies in the face of the danger that each person faces. Silent Night Standoff isn't a fluffy romance. It's a hardcore crime story with two people sharing great future potential. Their feelings collide every time danger appr [...]


    11. “She wasn't on duty. She’d just stopped in to cash a check for her upcoming Christmas party for homeless families.”But it wouldn't be just another day for Skyler Brennan. Bonnie and Clyde was in the bank, waving weapons at everyone. Bonnie and Clyde is what the media called them and today they had everyone on the floor as hostages in Skyler’s bank and Skyler was one of those hostages. The worst part; Skyler could tell Clyde was coming down from whatever drug he had taken. She was a negot [...]


    12. Whew! This book takes off at a full-fledged sprint right out of the gate and doesn’t slow down until the epilogue! Immediately from the opening line – “The gun came out of nowhere.” – Susan Sleeman plunges the reader into a high-action case packed with the best sort of tension, drama, suspense, and of course romance. I really enjoy a good suspense story, and Silent Night Standoff falls solidly in that category. There’s no slow build-up or wasted space here. Every minute counts in the [...]


    13. I just finished the first book, Silent Night Standoff, in the First Responders series by Susan Sleeman. May I say??? Well done! I wasn’t sure if I could let myself get caught up in another series where I would fall in love with the characters, only to have them disappear on me in four. However, I’m here to say - we have SIX books of these guys to enjoy and enjoy them I will! I absolutely love the way Ms. Sleeman writes. She has a way with her words that captivates the readers while creating [...]

The promotion of his dreams…and the safety of the woman he's never been able to forget.

    15. SUPER START FOR NEW SERIES! Sleeman begins her First Responder Series with a heart-stopping romance suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. The plot centers around hostage negotiator Sklyar Brennan and ex-boyfriend FBI Agent Logan Hunter as they are brought back in contact when Skylar finds herself in the midst of a bank robbery as a hostage and not as a hostage negotiator. Logan has just arrived in town working on the bank robbery as it fits the MO of bank ro [...]


    16. This is the first book in the first responders series. Skyler Brennan is a dedicated hostage negotiator. When she becomes a hostage will she be able to keep her calm and negotiate out of this one? She never expected her ex-boyfriend to be around, will she be able to negotiate the roller coster of emotions she must face. When her life is under fire and her heart hangs in the balance will she be able to help her team find the suspect and will her heart hold strong?Logan Hunter is a determined FBI [...]


    17. Skyler is a hostage negotiator. But she soon realizes that things are completely different from the other side. She's cashing a check at the bank when the infamous Bonnie and Clyde couple storms in and starts pointing their guns. Logan, an FBI agent, is soon on the scene. He's great at his job. But there is one tiny problem - he dumped Skyler to pursue his career two years ago. Skyler and her team of first responders are a close knit group. They all live in the old fire station and are closer th [...]


    18. Several months ago, I entered a contest to pick the title of this book on Susan Sleeman's website. Though the title I voted for didn't win, I did receive one of the copies of the book that she gave away. So, firstly, I want to say thankyou to Ms. Sleeman! As a full time college student, I didn't get around to reading the book as soon as I would have liked, but it's finally spring break! I read the book in a day and a half. I couldn't put it down. I love her characters so much. The book is sweet, [...]


    19. LOVED THIS BOOK! You won’t be disappointed with Susan Sleeman’s first book of her new First Responder series. SILENT NIGHT STANDOFF is full of suspense and heartwarming romance. All the characters are so relatable in their personalities and how they interact with one another. It was easy to get immersed in the story and not want to put the book down! The main two characters in this novel are Skyler Brennan and Logan Hunter who find themselves rapidly trying to figure out who wants to end Sky [...]


    20. the latest release by Susan Sleeman is a bona fide "can't put down" from page number one. The first book in her new series introduces you to Skylar Brennan and her responder squad during an armed robbery in which she becomes a hostage rather than a negotiator. Enter FBI agent Logan Hunter, with whom she shares a past relationship, and the sparks flying aren't only from the weapons firing! They both need to rely on God to release the hurt and learn how to trust again.As always, Susan creates uniq [...]


    21. Incredible suspense and heartwarming romance.I wish I could give it more than 5 stars, but that is the maximum that every website I post on allows. I absolutely LOVED this book!Susan Sleeman has created a wonderful cast of characters for this book. The two main ones for this novel are Skyler Brennan and Logan Hunter. They are so well developed and have so many layers to them that are gradually revealed it is an ongoing adventure to discover what makes each of them tick. Skyler is part of a team [...]


    22. I want to start out my review with this comment. I have been reviewing Susan Sleeman's books since 2010, I have read and reviewed nine of her books, this makes the tenth book I will have reviewed written by her. Often times over the past seven years of reviewing I have found that the more books an author writes the sloppier the writing gets, this is NOT true for Susan's books, they are pristine, the action and suspense is great and her story telling improves with every book.And Silent Night Stan [...]


    23. I loved Susan's The Justice Agency series and hated to see it end. When I learned she'd started a new one I looked forward to reading book one. I'm so happy to say she'd given us a new batch of believable and memorable characters who come alive in the story. When I finished Silent Night Standoff I was reminded of a quote by Paul Sweeney: “You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.”Silent Night Standoff is Skyler and Logan's st [...]


    24. What do you get when two hostage negotiators, a sniper, a bomb technician, an EMT, and their commanding officer live together? The answer is a family.Logan broke Skyler Brennan’s heart when he chose his job over her and moved to Chicago two years ago. She didn’t expect to see him again but now he’s back and immersed in her life. Logan Hunter believes he will finally win his father’s approval if he gets a promotion with the FBI but is it worth the life of the only woman he’s loved?A sto [...]


    25. Page Turning Suspense!Author Susan Sleeman knows how to write a great suspense story. This is the second book I have read of hers. I am looking forward to reading more.Skyler Brennan finds herself in a very bad situation. In the midst of a bank robbery she must put her skills to work as a hostage negotiator. Things quickly turn sour. Her very life is at stake. Someone is stalking her and wishes to see her dead. Many attempts are made on her life.This story gives you a glimpse of Skyler’s past [...]


    26. Full of action, suspense, romance and plot twists, Silent Night Standoff is a book I'd recommend to any readers. Although it's a Love Inspired, Sleeman doesn't get preachy, so those who don't normally read inspirational will still enjoy this book. I was hooked from the beginning, as this story opens right in the middle of a bank robbery. I enjoyed meeting Logan, Skyler, and the First Response Squad. The fact that Logan had to rely on his FBI team and the First Responders for the investigation ma [...]


    27. I thought this book was extremely good. Susan Sleeman has given us a great look at first responders and how they react to situations. Her story telling is compelling.I enjoyed the characters of Skyler and Logan. They were very focused on their goals and desires. The fact that they both knew the Lord but handled things in different ways was very true to life. I want to see more of the rest of the First Responders from the book. These guys and gals are an interesting lot. You see the caring in the [...]


    28. This book starts with a bank robbery in progress and an off duty cop, Skyler, inside. During the rescue Skyler ex-boyfriend, Logan, appears on scene as an FBI agent responsible to catch the robbers. As we get to know Skyler and Logan we learn that Logan left Skyler a few years ago, choosing his career over her, which really hurt her.
