Synopsis: Homicide detective Adam Kimble is no stranger to battling demons. But Meredith Fallon is a different kind of weakness: one that could actually be good for him, if only he would let himself depend on her. Meredith has loved Adam for a year, and seeing how hard he’s worked to deal with his PTSD makes her feelings only stronger, but she respects his needs. Her work keeps her busy anyway: she counsels sexually abused women like Mallory Martin to help them reintegrate into the world.
But someone doesn’t want Meredith helping women like Mallory, and Meredith finds herself the target of a very determined killer. Adam would risk anything for Meredith, but they’ll soon find out the killer is just a little too close to home…
My Rating: 5/5
My Review: My reading binge of this series continues and this time around we are looking at Adam Kimble and Meredith Fallon who take centre stage. I already have a bit of background with these two from the previous books and this has just got me to a point as a reader where I HAVE to know what the deal is with both of them.
Mallory Martin was the victim from the previous book and the reader gets to see her current life and how she is thriving, however somebody doesn’t want Meredith Fallon in the picture. The opening chapters of the book are absolutely brilliant and drag the reader in as we see Meredith having a gun pointed at her in the middle of a packed restaurant. In the explosive following chapters once again their circle of protective friends and family close ranks as they try to work out who wants Meredith dead.
Although it wouldn’t necessarily be a must to read the previous books I think there is a lot more flow reading them in order. You get the background of all the characters as well as having an idea on timeline. Abe, Meredith’s Grandfather was a welcome addition in this book along with the usual suspects I have come to love and expect in each of these books such as Deacon, Marcus, Scarlett and Deacon.
As are a lot of Karen Rose books you get a lot of bang for your buck and this book is just shy of 600 pages! However, it took me no time to read and once again by the time I got to the end I was just grateful I had the fifth and final book in this series ready to read. I am thrilled that this series have given me my reading mojo back and would highly recommend them.
