"Deadly Pursuit" Book Review

(Guardians of Justice #2)
Irene Hannon

As a social worker, Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children and seeing that justice is served on their behalf. But when she starts getting harassing phone calls and bizarre "gifts," it seems she may be the one in need of protection. When her tormentor's attentions take a violent turn, her brother Cole comes to her aid, along with his new partner, an ex-Navy SEAL, Detective Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Protecting Alison has become more than just a job--because his own happiness now depends on keeping her safe. Chock full of nail-biting suspense and heart-melting romance, Deadly Pursuit is Irene Hannon's storytelling at its very best. Fans old and new will not want to miss the next story in this series starring siblings fighting for justice.

I love the concept of this series - 3 siblings with different occupations that all put them on the side of fighting for truth, justice and the American way. Brother Jake was the star of book #1 and is a US Marshal. Brother Cole will be the star of book #3 and he is a homicide detective. Sister Alison is a Child Protective Services worker and she is the central figure in book #2. I really enjoy Irene Hannon's books and find them to be suspenseful and engaging and they keep my on the edge of my seat. While this book was good, it was a little less suspenseful than what I have come to expect. The situation ended up being life and death, but started out as a stalker... there was a lot of romance in this one, but not a lot of romantic tension. They both like each other... they are both incredibly good looking... they will eventually get together... There were some twists to the storyline that were good and I liked that we got to see Cole and Jake quite a bit as well. Overall it was good so I give this book 4 stars out of 5.

Available September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
