Lethal Legacy by Irene Hannon

Guardians of Justice (Book 3)

The police say her father's death was suicide. But Kelly Warren says it was murder--and she has new evidence that she believes proves it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn't put much credence in her claim, and nothing in his case review suggests foul play. But when Kelly ends up in the emergency room with a suspicious life-threatening medical condition, the incident strikes him as more than just coincidence. Digging deeper, he discovers she's linked to a long-ago crime. Is history repeating itself? Who wants Kelly silenced?

With her trademark high-intensity action and taut suspense, Irene Hannon closes out her Guardians of Justice series with a story of old grudges and budding romance that is sure to increase her substantial fan base.

My Review:
What a compelling read! Irene Hannon knows how people think, and she gets inside the heads of her characters. Early on, the reader can guess the identity of the villain. However, this only adds to the suspense as his twisted thought process is brought to light. The plot moves along at just the right pace.

The story contains romance aplenty. Although sexual tension is felt, Kelly and Cole demonstrate admirable constraint.

Sentence fragments bother me, but perhaps only me. The book is definitely worth your time, and I recommend it.

Although this novel is the third in a series, it can easily be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
