Roswell's Secret
National Security Comes At a PriceDean Dreiser learned that lesson long ago. Now, domestic terrorists are testing a biological weapon in southern New Mexico, and Dean is assigned a new partner—Dr. Lucinda Brown. Lucy is the leading expert in molecular biology, but she has no field experience. The terrorists are willing to kill thousands in order to trigger the fall of the two-party system and usher in a new political dawn. Lucy tracks the genetic print of the weapon while Dean hunts the insurgents. Separately, they don’t stand a chance against the terrible secret that dominates the night skies of Roswell, New Mexico. Together, they can do more than survive. They can combat and conquer this frightening threat.This fast-paced romantic thriller combines a twisting plot, believable characters, and fascinating details about military ops, bio-agents, terrorists, and forensics—all set against the backdrop of the dusty desert land of the Southwest. Be prepared for a read that will keep you up well into the night and an ending that will leave you questioning the true nature of Roswell’s Secret.Vannetta Chapman is the author of over twenty bestselling novels, including Hidden, Protected, and The Remnant Series.

Roswell's Secret Review

    An interesting viewpoint on what could happen with bio-warfareThis was another novel that had a host of viewpoints from a cast of characters that made me think. Roswell, NM becomes the focus of bioterrorism , gov. agents, and the people who frantically rush to stop evil from killing millions of innocent people. You will have to follow the story closely and use your imagination to picture the actions of "good vs evil."

    Roswell’s Secret is the second book in Vannetta Chapman’s “Defending America” series. Just like the first book in this series, the storyline could have come from today’s news headlines. The characters are well defined and likeable; deeply patriotic and heroic. The plot is detailed, suspenseful; grabs your attention and never lets go.

There is even a sweet love story that winds its way through the plot. This is a clean book with no bad language or embarrassing bedroom scenes. The main characters have good morals. Although I would not classify this as “Christian fiction”, it is an appropriate book for those who like to read that genre. Vannetta Chapman is master at writing mystery and suspense, and her readers will not be disappointed in any way by this book.

    This book had me on the edge of my seat. National security is on high alert while Dean and Lucy try to get the guilty gathered up before more tragedy happens. UFO s are seen in the area of Roswell. People unknowingly are out for thrill seeking not realizing the dangers they face. This would make an exciting but scary movie.

Thank you, Vannetta Chapman, for a reality read, and let’s hope it is not based on any fact.I received this book from the Author, and was not required to give a positive review.

    This is the second book in the series. Coyote's Revenge introduces you to some of the characters. Undercover agents, biochemical warfare on American soil, terrorists or American grown? The plot could be in the headlines of today's news. Twists and turns, action, some wonderful & quirky characters. Romance and death. Not your typical Vannetta Chapman book but well worth the read.

No one asked me to read nor review either Coyote's Revenge nor Roswell's Secret. I bought these books and had a hard time putting them down. (No choice-had to get ready for Christmas at my house) Both books are a little edgy or gritty but they are still clean, wholesome Christian suspense. Highly recommend both of these books. They can be read as stand alones but I recommend both of them. I love Vannetta's Amish books but her Christian Romantic Suspense is tops.

    Vannetta did another amazing job with her characters. I found myself cringing at some of the imagery and laughing at things the main characters said and did. This book makes you think about all the things civilians are unaware of. Yikes! Great story!!

    After I liked the first one so much, this was a pretty big disappointment. The ending was rushed and unbelievable and I wouldn't consider this a clean read with the graphic descriptions of bio chemical warfare.

    This story was just as great as Book 1. It keep me wondering what would happen next and the ending was not what I expected. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

At one time there were so many tears that I had to stop and wipe my eyes before I could continue. I hope that I never have to go through anything like this. I loved Dean and Dr. Lucy. They are on a mission defending America. You do not know who to trust, even someone you think you know. Trust no one. Will they survive the terrorist ,biological weapons, and the secret in the night skies of Roswell? I absolutely loved this series and I highly recommend it .

Roswell. Dean Dreiser, an agent for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (UCSIS), was in Roswell New Mexico at the White Sands Missile Range. It is hot. It is dusty. It is sandy. Dreiser is miserable in this uncomfortable little town with its rather unwelcoming and odd mixture of residents. His new partner, Dr Lucinda Brown, are there to investigate a rather disturbing body found disintegrating in the desert. Lucy is one of the leading molecular scientists in the field but she is without field experience; sparks fly as Dean tries to protect Lucy in spite of herself, while trying to protect himself and whatever the hideous disease that overtook the man in the desert from reaching the townspeople. A disease that seems to have been manufactured. Working undercover at a local bar, Lucy and Dean race to determine who is behind this horrid biological weapon and why. As more bodies are discovered in the desert, Lucy soon figures out that the weapon is not fully ready as each body found reveals someone is fine tuning the bacteria to kill at an exact pace following a very exacting and horrific method of dying. Now that your nails are bitten to the quick, continue reading as Lucy and Dean work together to save the odd little town of Roswell from biological weapon annihilation. And fan the flames of romance that have developed from those initial sparks of seeming incompatibility.
