When her client and old college friend is murdered, P.I. Kat Justice knows the killer will come for her next. Her survival depends on finding her unknown enemy first…and working with homicide detective Mitch Elliot, her onetime crush. It’ll take all her professional skills to ignore the sparks between them, but Kat can’t allow the handsome cop to get close. She’s seen too many people she loves die, so she vows just to do her job without getting emotionally involved. Yet keeping her distance may not be the best way to protect her heart—or their lives.
This is my second Susan Sleeman book and I enjoyed it as much as the first :).
This is the second in the Justice Agency series and I’m guessing there will be three more [since there’s 5 siblings] and I look forward to the others.
Sleeman does an excellent job of keeping all of us on our toes. From the opening sequence until the resolution, she keeps us guessing. I’m usually pretty good at guessing twists and this one caught me by surprise. I love that.
Neither Kat nor Mitch were perfect. They both have things in their pasts that need to be worked through. They both know all the reasons why they should run far away from each other, but they don’t. Thank goodness. 😀
The romance aspect was well done and I hope to see Kat and Mitch in future installments of the Justice Agency series.
One thing I did miss in this one was the couple from book 1. They were mentioned but didn’t make an appearance. It wasn’t a deal breaker or anything for me, but I love seeing part of the HEA in other books in a series.
