Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A determined daughter . . .
A skeptical detective . . .
A deadly secret . . .

The police say her father's death was suicide. Kelly Warren says it was murder--and she has new evidence to prove it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn't put much credence in her claim, and nothing in his case review suggests foul play. But when he digs deeper (delete dash) and discovers startling information linking her to a long-buried secret, the danger escalates. Is history repeating itself? And who wants Kelly silenced?

Irene Hannon brings her Guardians of Justice series to a romantic and suspenseful ending with Lethal Legacy. Each one of the books in the series has been awesome--though, personally, Deadly Pursuit tops them all for me! All of the books I've read by Hannon have an intense, pulse-pounding and thrilling adventure that is sure to make stay awake late into the night!

From the previous books featuring Jake and Allison, I'd already gotten to know their brother Cole a little bit and was intrigued by him. Needless to say, I was thrilled when Lethal Legacy came out and gave Cole the spotlight. I highly recommend you read this series in order, since the series is more of a continual story of the three Taylor children.

I liked Kelly--thought she was perfect for Cole. And her love and devotion to her father was admirable. The mystery surrounding his death made for a great suspense. And while I was surprised to find out the identity of the killer so quickly, it didn't diminish the suspense of the book. I totally and thoroughly enjoyed it!

That last part of the book was intense and impossible to put down. What a wild ride! It's kinda sad that the series is over--I so enjoyed meeting the Taylor trio and listening to them banter back and forth. But I look forward to what Irene Hannon will bring us next in her new, upcoming series!

I reviewed this book for Revell. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.

Do you want a good book with plenty of action, and subtle clues as to "who done it?" One of my favorite authors has a new book for you! Irene Hannon's latest book in her "Guardians of Justice" series, Lethal Legacy, fits the bill. Interesting police work and a good love story make this book a keeper.

Kelley's father has died, and the police have concluded that he committed suicide, but Kelly just can't believe it. She has been close to her father all of her life, and in spite of a tough diagnosis of cancer, in her heart she knows suicide would not be her father's choice. An unexpected birthday present from her father sends her to the police. Detective Cole Taylor tends to agree with her, and he begins to investigate. What he finds brings a whole new dimension to the father Kelly thought she knew. How all this works out will keep you turning pages, so allow a little extra time to finish the book before you go to bed.

Oh, yes, you might also want to get the first two books in this series, as they are great reads, too!

When I first discovered Irene Hannon, I read everything of hers I could get my hands on. Since then, I've been waiting on the next great book to come out, and Lethal Legacy lived up to every expectation I had! With challenge after challenge thrown in front of them, Cole and Kelly get to know each other under less-than-ideal circumstances. When Cole begins to believe the suspicions Kelly has about how her father died, he won't stop until they solve the mystery.

Hannon has a talent for writing stories that grab your attention and don't let go until the very last page. While readers will probably figure out "whodunit" early on, all the pieces don't fall into place until the very end of the book, which kept me guessing about various aspects of the mystery. Plus, when you throw in the romance between the two main characters, I couldn't put the book down! I also appreciated the way that the main characters grew in their faith walks throughout the story--but in ways that weren't over-the-top or unrealistic.

I'm already looking forward to the next Irene Hannon release . . . too bad it's quite a few months away! Fans of romantic fiction will enjoy Lethal Remedy and the other books in this series! [5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my fair and honest review.

I've waited for months to read this - ever since it came out. And it was totally worth it. SO good. If I'd known I'd enjoy it this much, I would have gone ahead and splurged on the money to buy it! Cause this is a book worth buying. Absolutely jam packed with gripping suspense that kept me riveted the whole way through. There was some sweet romance as well, but it wasn't overmuch or overdone. I love the writing. If you've enjoyed suspense, romantic suspense, or any book by Irene, Lynette Eason, Dani Pettrey, Dee Henderson...give this one a try! It definitely made it onto my favorites list.

Format: Paperback
LETHAL LEGACY, the third installment in the Guardians of Justice series did not disappoint.
Kelly Warren is in search of the truth regarding the unexpected death of her father. Though his death was labeled a suicide, she knows her father would've never taken his own life. When Detective Cole Taylor gets involved in her case, he finds peculiarities and new evidence that might just point to murder. Kelly appreciates Cole's tenacity, but also finds herself interested in Cole on a more personal level.

Detective Cole Taylor looks into the death of Kelly's father merely as a formality to assist a grieving family member. But, he soon finds himself with evidence that not only proves Mr. Warren did not kill himself, but that his ties to a dangerous group of people might have something to do with the threats on Kelly's life. Knowing Kelly's life is in danger, Cole watches out for her safety, and realizes his need to protect her is not only on a professional level, but fueled by his growing feelings for her. Together, Cole and Kelly dig below the surface and find that not only was her father's death murder, but that a cover-up is underway as well.

LETHAL LEGACY was a quick read because I found myself not wanting to put the book down. Irene Hannon's knack for writing intriguing stories puts her on my list of favorite authors. Weaving suspense, romance, interesting characters and unique storylines, makes LETHAL LEGACY the perfect escape from the everyday grind. Though you know on the outset what the outcome will be for the hero and heroine, it does not diminish the impact of the journey.
