Sam and Nick - DC's favorite couple. As they prepare to get married, Sam finds herself investigating yet another high profile murder case. When it comes to light that a Senator has been sleeping with a member of the cleaning crew - and she winds up dead - Sam knows there's more to the story than what first appears. Her gut rarely steers her wrong, and it's absolutely correct in this one. She finds herself investigating several political figures - some in very high places.
Politics can be murder.
Lieutenant Sam Holland has no sooner accepted Senator Nick Cappuano's proposal than she's back on the job. A woman has been found brutally murdered and evidence points to Henry Lightfeather, a senator and close friend of Nick's. While Sam investigates, Nick stands by his friend—complicating his own bid for reelection, and causing tension between the couple.
As Sam's investigation reveals a scandal that rocks the capital, Nick and Sam discover that the biggest threat to their future might be someone from her past.
But the murderer is convinced he's untouchable and begins to make threats against Sam. Meanwhile, Nick is trying to plan their wedding and keep Sam safe. To top it all off, Sam's ex-husband is back in the story causing problems again. Sam and Nick's relationship really seems kind of settled in this one, so Marie has introduced a new romance that is so incredibly sweet.
Detective Gonzalez (Gonzo) has just found some incredibly exciting and scary news. He's afraid that it will tear his new relationship with Christine apart. But they are both amazing people and you just know they are meant to be together. It was a lot of fun to have this couple finding true love - even though their story wasn't the main event - it was prominent enough that it really stands out.

Nick and Sam's wedding is almost here, and Nick is determined that nothing will keep Sam from being able to make it. He refuses to let her work get in the way this time. I loved watching Sam's more girly side come out as she gets excited about she gushes over shoes and dresses.

Book 3.5: a Fatal novella. Don't miss Fatal Affair, Fatal Justice and Fatal Consequences, available now.
But Sam may have caught a break in the case of her father's shooting - and it will be hard to keep her focused on the wedding and not work. And the break is a very dangerous one.
I loved the wedding planner, Sam calls her Tinker Bell and now I can't remember what her real name was. Every time I picture her like a little pixie making magic happen. And that's just what she does for Sam and Nick. Their wedding comes together beautifully and there are quite a few very touching scenes spread out nicely throughout this fantastic novella.
