Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon Book Review

Deadly Pursuit: A Novel (Guardians of Justice)

From the Publisher:

Bestselling author Irene Hannon returns with the second novel in her “Guardians of Justice” series, Deadly Pursuit (ISBN: 978-0-8007-3457-2, $14.99, 352 pages, September). Hannon is the recipient of several high honors in her literary genre. As Library Journal has stated, “RITA Award winner Hannon is a master at character development.”

Alison Taylor is a young, single social worker recovering from a serious accident and a broken relationship, kept busy by her demanding job and her faithful canine companion, Bert. But when her police-detective brother  pushes her into a blind date with his new colleague, ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Morgan,  she’s not sorry—and neither is Mitch. When she begins to receive anonymous calls and threatening gifts, however, their relationship shifts into professional mode as well.  And as Mitch works to protect the woman who is fast stealing his heart, he can only pray they’ll find her tormentor before the man’s game turns deadly.

My Review:

If you like thrillers that have tons of suspense then this book is for you!  It is not a book for the weak of heart.  I knew before I picked it up that it was not meant for everyone and was not family friendly.

Reading this book gave me chills.  It should not be read before bedtime.

I liked how the author brought the characters from her other series, Heroes of Quantico back into this story.  But, you do not have to read that series to understand this story.

I did feel that the story at the end was very rushed.  I felt that the end of the story should have happened in a different way -yet still ending in the same conclusion.

This was a very easy read - however should be read with extreme caution.  It has awful circumstances and does lead to horrible mental images.  It is not a family friendly book.  But, does have an inspirational side.

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
