Their chemistry is off the charts and the dance (no pun intended) is one that will keep you tethered between screaming and flipping pages because I just couldn't get enough.
I read this book in a couple of days and kept getting angry at anything that would get in the way of reading. It's my first Nancy C. Weeks and also my first of many to come. I can't wait for the next one. I want to know what happens to the D'Azzp family.
The two main characters in this book are Emersyn D'Azzo, the youngest child of Grace and Joe D'Azzo, and Detective Alec Pearce, Joe's capable and trusted partner. She is a newly graduated forensic scientist, who has a long-standing love/hate relationship with the serious detective. When the story begins, Emersyn is celebrating her graduation with her family and ends up arguing with her father, while Maryland police are trying to identify a sniper who's been randomly shooting people around Maryland. Joe and Alec are part of a statewide law enforcement task force to solve the murders, and it appears Joe has been targeted by the sniper.
Pros: 1. The story is fast paced, action packed and well written. 2. All the more significant characters are well-developed, with their own unique flaws and strengths. 3. Vivid scenes transport the reader into the story. 4. The dialogue and interactions are interesting and realistic. 5. Having lived in Maryland when snipers were terrorizing DC and its neighboring counties in Maryland and Virginia several years ago, I remember the fear of not knowing where the sniper would strike next. That fear is accurately reflected in this story.
Cons: 1. The only sex scene in the story was written well, but I felt it was a little too long at that point in the story. 2. Part of the mystery isn't totally solved in this book but is provided as the link to the next story in the series. Since this is not unusual to a series, and since neither of these negatives take away from the book's overall storyline, they only drop the rating to 4.5 stars.
Overall: THE EYEWITNESS is a smart, fast-paced, and well-written mystery that should appeal to suspense and mystery fans everywhere.

Alec is a hard man, he didn't grow up with love just mostly anger. He doesn't known how to handle his feelings, but when he becomes part of the D'Azzo family he has to deal with emotions he didn't know he had. Mostly around Em. When Alecs bestfriend/partner and father figure is killed he promises to protect Em, which she doesnt make easy for him and even though she frustrates the help out of him, he loves it.
Em has always rubbed her dad and his partner the wrong way. She is act first and think after type of girl but she is trying to stop that. She has alot of anger towards Alec from a past that they can't seem to move on from. After witnessing her dad's death she is determined to find the man that killed him. That seems to include have Alec around alot but it seems to help her figure her true feelings for him.
I can't wait for more in this series as I love the people. Also still some unfinished questions that have me wanting more.
