And then there is her twin sister who is as insane as Ava is supposedly sane. I say "supposedly" because I'd like to slap Ava and tell her she is just like her sister, just not so obvious. And no, Ava isn't the junkie Jayne is, but there are other types of addiction. Like being whiney. Oh woe is me. I found myself skipping the whiney parts of the book which included Jayne mostly. I don't care about Jayne as a character - she's a life-sucker (time waster for the reader) and this character will end up killing this series of books. And another things that is not realistic - if a superior was aware of the emotional illness of one of his agents, he or she would not be sporting a gun and badge. And everyone knows!
I gave this book 3 stars rather than 2 because the first 2 books were solid, good reading. This one, not so much. But you'll probably see it on Lifetime or Hallmark one day. They love whiney!
My Thoughts & a little bit of Storyline:
You already have an idea of how I feel about the book from the first paragraph of my review. This book left me shook. I was not prepared. From the beginning to the end of this book, I was on the edge of my bed when reading it. There were shootings left and right, and it felt like Ava is already the one in danger of the group. She was on vacation when the first mass shooting happened in this book. She can’t even enjoy a relaxing break from work after what happened in the previous book. I felt for her character. She has some severe PTSD from her kidnapping, and now she’s dealing with a mass shooting case. Hasn’t she gone through enough, Kendra?
Poor Mason and Ava have gone through enough together, but this one may have almost broken them. I love these two characters, so I was rooting for them to stick together. They need each other more than they know. Mason had a big part in this book on solving who was behind the mass shooting, but he also became very protective of Ava. I adored his character. He knew that Ava already had PTSD from her past cases, and he put his foot down with Ava.
Let’s also not forget about Ava’s twin sister. Jayne needs help, and Ava knows she can’t keep being there for her sister. Ava should be focusing on herself, and everyone knows she needs to take care of herself.
What did I think about the villain(s)? I have no words because this one may cause me nightmares. I can’t say it enough, but every villain gets worst in each book that Kendra writes. She ends up topping the next one.
Overall, this book gets five stars from me because I couldn’t put it down. I needed to find out who was behind it all. If you are a fan of Romantic Suspense or Mystery Genres, this book/series is for you.
Now, I need to read another book before reading Targeted, but I will be back in this series. I need more of Mason and Ava’s story together, especially after the ending of this book.
This story was the most emotional one of the ones I've read recently.
I am feeling such stress for Ava, wondering how she's going to balance her life, knowing Jayne is always going to be a part of it. She's like an anchor pulling Ava down. Mason is so heroic, even when he's stymied about how to help. Or should I say he's especially heroic because he doesn't try to fix Ava's life or Ava, herself (who needs no fixing).
Travis was an excellent antagonist, with an acute mind. I love what he did with the Starbucks scene. It showcased his intelligence.
Really good book. So far haven't been disappointed.

Not really interested in a neurotic special agent and her more neurotic sister. If she managed to become a special agent God help America because Micky Mouse would also stand a good chance of being selected. Some of the things she does are just plain stupid in amongst an occasional act of bravery.
Tried all of her novels in this series now in the hope that they would improve but I'm afraid the books are weak on action and rich on padding. Far less a book not to put down more likely to send you to sleep in places.
I did find it odd that, upon meeting parents of a shoot-em-up teen, the detective asks, "What was your latest argument about" ? Of course, families row but I found it strange he'd ask this when there had been no previous mention of arguments. I haven't made mention of this before so perhaps it's a new "thing" for her but in this book she hops about from character to character describing their thoughts and feelings in the one scene. I'm doing a lousy job of explaining this, there are probably proper literary ways of saying what I'm doing a bad job of writing down. If the author reads the review, she'll know what I mean !! Anyway, I found it a little distracting and wasn't keen on the style. I did get a kick out of a remark made regarding social media in this-"What makes someone who lives in Tokyo feel they have the right to send them hate mail" ? A very good observation.....
Certain details of each crime I wondered about as they were glossed over, really. The shooters' suicides...I can't go into further specifics than this, however. And is AJ a real name ??
I've made mention in previous reviews of this series that mistakes are very infrequent and it's the same in this one. Short list is usually the one word and day was written instead of days and that was all I noticed. Bravo....I did laugh in the Acknowledgements at what she wrote regarding Melinda Leigh, also.
I fair flew through this book, it was all over way too quickly.....looking forward to the next one, just don't let it be the last, please !
It's slow boring and repetitive. If you read this book as a one off I'd have enjoyed it...I think! But as part of a series it was annoying. I've bought the final book so I'll read it.
