Kelly Warren believes her father has been murdered. The police call it a suicide. Five months after the incident, Kelly walks into the precinct with new evidence, claiming it proves he didn’t take his own life. Detective Cole Taylor has his doubts, but agrees to review the case. At first, nothing seems awry, but when Kelly ends up at the hospital, Cole wonders if there may be something behind her suspicions.
Kelly’s brush with death only fuels her determination. As the search for the truth leads her in directions she never expected, Kelly discovers her father may not be the man she believed. With Cole helping her every step of the way, it isn’t long before Kelly’s feelings for the handsome detective take a turn.
In Lethal Legacy, Irene Hannon delivers a story filled with suspense and romance that will grasp the reader’s attention. The characters are fun and interesting and the banter between the Taylor family members is quite entertaining. While the reader knows the killer’s identity fairly early on, it doesn’t detract from the tension that builds throughout the story. Especially toward the end, a gripping and climactic event (which I wouldn’t want to ruin for you!) kept me at the edge of my seat as I anxiously waited to see how the events would unfold.
Lethal Legacy is the third book in the Guardians of Justice Series. Although, I didn’t read the first two, I had no trouble following the plot. However, if this story is any indication of what the others are like, I definitely want to check them out. This is a good pick for anyone looking for a clean, faith-oriented, romantic suspense novel.
