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 reviews suggests foul play. But when Kelly ends up in the emergency room with a suspicious life-threatening medical condition, the incident strikes him more than just coincidence. Digging deeper, he discovers she's linked to a long-ago crime. Is history repeating itself? And who wants Kelly silenced?
Exquisite writing doesn't begin to describe this breath-taking read. Hannon just keeps getting better and better with each book she writes. Though third (and final) in the Guardians of Justice series, Lethal Legacy easily reads as a stand alone. However, fans of the series will be thrilled to connect with the Taylor clan once again.
This time it's Cole who takes the spotlight. Nothing like a reformed rake police detective with a nose for mystery playing the role of hero in a romantic suspense novel! Cole was a perfect fit for this reader! And I loved how Hannon developed the relationship between hero and heroine. She took the time in every scene to up their attraction, increase their connection, lower their defenses -- even the scenes Kelly and Cole weren't together in! As a result the romance took as much precedence as the suspense and it made the read all the more satisfying.
In fact, between the romantic development and the suspense at every turn, I couldn't bring myself to stop reading. Devoured this one in a day -- only coming up for air long enough to attend church in the morning! Put this one on your TBR list -- waaay at the top -- and clear a day to settle down for an amazing read!
