Marie Force Does it again!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fatal Affair (The Fatal Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I've read all the books by Marie Force and I have to say I like them all. This book, is slightly different to her previous books. In my opinion, this book's primary focus was mystery and suspense and the love story was secondary. The combination created a fun and exciting read.
Samantha, a DC Detective is assigned to the murder investigation of a young U.S. Senator. When she goes to the scene of the crime, she learns that the body was discovered by the Senator's best friend and Chief of Staff, Nick. Sam and Nick had previously met six years ago and had a one night stand. They have not seen each other or spoken since then. This unexpected reunion brings back a lot of memories to both of them as they try to work together to solve the murder. I couldn't put the book down trying to figure out who had killed the senator and what was going to happen between Nick and Sam.
This story if filled with lots of characters that were surprisingly well developed considering the length of the book. You come to love a few of them by the end. Some might find parts of this book too gruesome or violent, but if you can see past these, you will find yourself immersed in the plot from start to finish.
The hopeless romantic in me only wished the romance played a slightly bigger part in the book, but I read somewhere both Sam and Nick come back in Ms. Force's next book. So hopefully I will get more romance there and see what happens next! :) I cannot wait for her next book!
I highly recommend this book, it was a highly enjoyable read!
