"The eleventh book in Force's Fatal series is a nail-biter with plenty of twists, a surprising bad guy and a conclusion that will leave fans anxiously awaiting the next book. Readers will love that Force brings back so many different characters from the previous books so that it feels like a reunion of sorts. There are strong hints offered at the end that she might be taking the series in a new possible direction that will blow fans' minds. It feels as if Force is trying to keep things fresh in her latest, but fans can still count on plenty of suspense, romance and the wonderful characters they've come to love and root for." -- RT Book Reviews 4 STARS

The police procedurals in these cases are always intriguing. I enjoyed following the evidence along with Sam and other detectives as they worked together to solve this case. I love these characters and have enjoyed reading about their lives. However, there are things occurring that just don’t work for me. Sam is the Second Lady – the Vice President’s wife – and yet she roams around the city easily recognized without protection of any kind…because she stomps her foot and demands it be that way. There’s no consideration for Nick or anyone else – just Sam doing what Sam wants to do. I loved that she continued to work after becoming Second Lady and think the plot has great potential, but it’s becoming harder to suspend belief and accept the fact that no agent covers her, and it’s never been more evident (or over-the-top) than in this book. Sam’s continued blatant attitude, along with some other issues, was so profound in Fatal Threat that I found myself shaking my head a few too many times. It lessened my enjoyment of this book.
I’m a fan of the series. I’ve loved the journey with Nick, Sam, and Scotty as well as the awesome support cast. I’m intrigued with their lives and future and am really hoping to see a more believable stance going forward. Yes, even Romance/Suspense has to be believable to a point. The saving grace for this book is the Bonus Story at the end concerning Avery and Shelby. I loved it and them!
Once again, we return to the lives of Lt. Sam Holland, Vice President Nick Cappuano and their always adorable son Scotty. Sam is still her usual sassy self as she continues to work for the Washington Metro Police while trying to adjust to her new role as Second Lady. At the beginning Sam and Freddie are called out to a possible murder scene. They're just starting their investigation when Sam is suddenly whisked away from the crime scene, against her will, by the Secret Service. She soon discovers that both her and Nick's whole family have been taken into protective custody by the Secret Service and are brought to a top secret location. All of them are pretty shaken. To make matters worse, Nick is out of the country in the Middle East and Sam is unable to contact him and is provided very little information about his safety. Sam soon finds out that a viable threat has been made against Nick, as Vice President, and their whole family, especially the children. Sam is also informed that Nick authorized the Secret Service to place the whole family in a secure bunker to protect them until he can return home.
Against Nick's wishes, Sam is determined to lead her team in investigating not only the murder of the unidentified woman from whose crime scene she was taken, but also continue looking for a missing young woman. Early on, her team discovers the tortured body of an old acquaintance of Sams. This horrific murder brings up a lot of mixed emotions for her as she wonders if she's indirectly responsible for the murder. Sam continues to lead her team despite the threat against her, Nick and their families and despite the scandalous rumors being spread about her and her husband Nick by the continually intrusive paparazzi. The treat, the murders, the scandals, and the typical dirty politics make for an extremely challenging situation that becomes a very stressful and emotional journey for Sam, Nick and Scotty. As usual, they find strength, happiness and love in each other as well as in their close family and friends.
Fatal Threat is a fast pace romantic suspense story with lots of romance, intrigue, humor and of course Sam's always present sassy attitude and determination. I enjoyed reading the story as the mystery unfolded. I was quite surprised! I always love the wonderful interactions between Sam, Nick and Scotty. Their lives are often filled with stress, angst, humor and of course lots of love. In Fatal Threat we get to see Sam back in action with her friends and team. The chemistry between Sam and Freddie is always funny and entertaining. It was also great to see Gonzo back in action and to catch up on the lives of her team. Avery Hill is once again back as the FBI's lead investigator which always puts Nick on edge. We'll have to wait until the next book to see if Shelby and Avery can make a go of their relationship. I really hope Avery can get his act together to be there for Shelby and Noah like they deserve.
Fatal Threat was a wonderful addition to the Fatal series and a must read!! Only Marie Force can write a series like this that captures your attention and has you totally fixated on the story while anxiously awaiting her next book. She has an amazing writing style that has you totally absorbed in the mystery, while catching up with past characters and at the same time has you falling in love all over again with Sam, Nick and Scotty. Although I wanted to find out who was responsible for the threat and murders, I didn't want the book to end. I never do. Thank you Marie for another incredible story! Please keep the books coming! I'm already looking forward to book 12 - Fatal Chaos which will be available Feb 27, 2018. I can't wait for another story with my favorite characters- Sam, Nick, and Scotty!!
Plot Lt Sam Holland and her extended family are picked up from wherever they are and put into lockdown. Somebody is threatening them, especially the children. Needless to say Sam is grumpy about that as she is in the middle of a case involving an unknown body floating in the river. Then there is an even more significant dead body and let the ride begin! Set in Washington DC.
What Appeals to me? Every time there is usually the mystery of a dead body for Sam and her team. I love the team dynamics and the various characters, many of whom have had a book with some focus on them. Then there is Sam's family and the people who work for her and her husband Nick. And... Nick and Sam - what a dynamic, romantic couple.
Each book leads into the next, I couldn't imagine not reading the previous ones first in order, but I guess it could be done but I wouldn't advise it.
And so.... I sat up and read this book one evening and then the short story that followed and then... the first chapter of Fatal Chaos which comes out early next year. I never, I repeat never, read a first chapter in a coming book. I broke my rule this time!! Fatal Chaos - February 2018, you are in my calendar.
