"Saving Tampa is an absolute page turner; not only does the thrill of the threat pervade every page, but the challenges to the emotions, beliefs and abilities of the main character Rachel are relentless. The many smaller threads within this really flesh out the story, like that little hint of attraction between Rachel and 'her' special agent. We don't even know if we should hope for them to get together, or if their personal life should be important at all; because, indeed, the two of them are a little busy with saving the world. Saving Tampa is a great read, with wide appeal. Webnar's ability to create engaging characters is eclipsed only by the power and pace of her storyline."--Long and Short Reviews
"Ingenious, delightful, and explosive. I want more."--Mark, Book Cove Reviews
"Ms. Webnar has written an intriguing tale of a psychic, an FBI agent, and a terrorist plot. While the reader might first think--isn't this predictable?--one soon learns the story is no ordinary one. She has a style of writing which pulls in the reader, with snappy dialogue, natural actions, and vivid depictions of the characters and scenes, without being overly verbose. The reader will appreciate the correct, authentic jargon and tools which are a mainstay of law enforcement units. Be prepared for an exciting, surprising conclusion. Congratulations to Jo Webnar on an excellent novel. This reviewer highly recommends it to anyone, whether or not suspense is the genre of choice."--Celia Yeary, WRDF Review
"What if you knew something horrible was going to happen but you could prevent it, would you tell someone? Sure, we all would. What if you saw it in a vision and had no proof? Would you risk your credibility to come forward? These are the questions at the heart of Saving Tampa, an on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller from Jo Webnar. As they follow the twists and turns of a terrorist's mind, Rachel and Hawk discover that in Saving Tampa, they are also saving themselves. Jo Webnar has written a wonderful suspense that is as timely as it is entertaining."--Mairead Walpole, Reviews by Crystal
"Ms., if you're doing this to get publicity...
I think you should know it's a federal offense to falsely involve the FBI and Homeland Security." He prepared to get up, snapped his notebook shut and put it in his pocket.
Before he had a chance to stand, she moved in front of him and shoved him back onto the couch. "Now you wait just a damn minute! I'm a US citizen, and I wouldn't make a report if I didn't think this was serious. Do you think this is fun for me? Then you have another think coming! Aren't we, as concerned citizens, supposed to report suspicious occurrences? Well, I'm
telling you there was something about this man that made me think of 9/11. Before you start judging me, asshole, check my reputation with the Chicago PD."
"We got the call from your ... uh ... brother. Ms. Cunningham." His tone was as deadly as rifle bullets.
"I'm not talking about Danny. Why don't you call Captain James Anderson at the Hyde Park Precinct?"
Her face was red and twisted in anger as she
leaned toward him. This time Hawk made it to his full six-foot three-inch height, and loomed over her. Reluctantly, she took a step back.
