Lethal Legacy - A Review

Kelly Warren doesn't believe that her father committed suicide. Things just don't add up. Cole Taylor is the detective assigned to hearing her concerns while the detective who investigated her father's death is on vacation. Yet when more discrepancies start to appear and Kelly's life is in danger, Cole's radar goes off. There's something to what she's saying. Yes he's not supposed to cross the personal/professional line. But he finds himself falling for her as much as she finds herself falling for him. A few hurdles to cross - her father's case is reopened, his faith, or lack of it, and the fact that Cole would do anything to protect her. Will these two get to the bottom of her father's death, or will Kelly become the next victim?

 The third book in the Guardians of Justice Series doesn't disappoint. Having met Cole in the other two books and seeing him develop as a character, I was thrilled to be able to read his story. Fast paced and full of action from the start, I literally read this in about 18 hours. Irene Hannon provides romantic suspense that rivals that of Dee Henderson and Terri Blackstock. I'd figured out who the killer was fairly early in the story, but enjoyed the twists and turns the book took as the characters reached the same conclusion as I did. The book also touches on the importance of family as seen with Cole's interactions with his siblings and their love and support for their brother.

I received this book for free from the publisher, Revell Books, for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Available in August 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Recommended to Dee Henderson fans, romantic suspense.

Rating - 4 stars


  1. I have this one on my "to-read" pile. :)

  2. Dawn, great review. Irene is one of my favorite authors, I am glad the third book lives up to the expectations of the series. From reading through your reviews; sounds like we have similar taste in authors! Would love for you to share your review on my site; since I haven't had a chance to read this one or Full Disclosure yet.
