What readers have to say about Calculated Risks:

“Isa is quirky, fallible and determined to fulfill her purpose against all odds and oddities she encounters on her wild ride into the underworld….a well crafted story, and a very enjoyable read… looking forward to the next wild ride with Isa!” – R. Schumacher

An exciting read and page turner!” – Anne

The author did a great job weaving a plot of corruption, drugs, faith, and romance. It was difficult to tell who were corrupt and who were playing both sides. The villain was also well crafted as a person who had ‘some’ humanity, though misguided. I had serious belly laughs when Isa tried to determine ‘what level of crazy’ Awena landed on. Overall very entertaining. Read this in one day and pretty much ignored everything else. Great work!” – Patricia

Fans of Rachel Dekker are in for a treat with Calculated Risk. L.G. Westlake’s heart-pounding debut is a suspense ride you won’t soon forget!” – Lori Bates Wright, Author

I have not sat and read a book cover to cover in two days in 25 years. From the opening paragraph you get engaged in the character development and an immediate twist. Just when you begin to figure it out the author shifts from one twist in the plot to another. Good writing style, humor, a bit of sarcasm scattered with God’s truth all in one. Will be waiting anxiously for a possible sequel.” — Augustus
