4.0 out of 5 stars Not sure how far this series can go, August 18, 2011
This review is from: Justice (Jess and Mark Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
When I realized that Robards was breaking up a couple from a previous book to launch this series I wasn't sure she could do it in a way that made sense to me as a reader. Mark and Jessica's breakup works perfectly for the characters and created a believable tension. If they continue to have cold feet for multiple books I could see it getting old, but here it is like a television couple after the cameras leave. Panic is a more natural outcome to the type of whirlwind romance Mark and Jessica had than living happily ever after is. I enjoyed Justice but it was more of a 3.5 read than a true 4. I appreciate Jessica's devotion to her job, I can buy into the amoral world of power Robards has created for her to live in, but I don't know how many books the formula will sustain. The primary mystery of Justice is resolved, but enough threads are left dangling that further books seem certain. While the plot kept me guessing, a few moments do hinge on critical mistakes by the villain that make him a bit of a bumbler. A little more attention to detail and our heroine (and a few besides) are goners. All in all a fun read that will bring me back for more, although I don't know how many more.
