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?

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.
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!
I liked that each book in the series had the whole family make appearances throughout the story. As with the other 2 books, we find out "who dunit" early on, but that does take away from the gripping action. Another "hard to put down" book by Irene Hannon. Totally Recommend!
