Great Blend of Suspense and Romance!,
This review is from: A Killer Among Us: . (Women of Justice Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Kit Kenyon is a hostage negotiater. Noah Lambert is a detective. At the beginning of the book, they have just become partners in their department. They are on a case which they soon discover involves a serial killer. His targets have either been promising law students or somehow attached to the college where they were studying. Now he is after Kit and Noah as well.
This is the third book in the Women of Justice series. I read the first book, but not the second. Each story will stand alone. The characters, however, do reappear throughout the series.
I found this story enjoyable; in fact, I stayed up til the early hours of the morning finishing it. The details are rather vivid, so it may not be suitable for the faint of heart. It is not quite as sophisticated as some other suspense authors, but it's good. I knew early on who the killer was, although there were several good decoys and subplots. Believability was a bit flawed; there is no way the killer would get away with his goal. He cleverly eluded the police with every murder, which indicated intelligence....so I had a bit of a problem with that. But I enjoyed the process of the story. I read for entertainment, so I don't mind stretching possibilities if the story is interesting. Which this definitely was. The side romance between partners Kit and Noah was also very good. I was a bit surprised at some of the thoughts attributed to the characters. Hmm. This is definitely not a Lori Copeland novel. But it's realistic. So many Christian books aren't, in my opinion. It's a pretty tough line to do well. And it continues to be a hot issue in the Christian market. This author seems to draw the line at thoughts and conversation. With plenty of believable chemistry and spark.
All in all I would recommend this book. It is fast-paced, suspenseful and romantic. A great combination!
