Absolutely amazing! Marie Force has continued the story of Sam and Nick with another incredible book. With two murder investigations underway and Nick's new senatorial appointment, they seem to have a bit of a hard time connecting. And with one of those investigations involving one of Nick's close friends, there's more than enough stress to go around.
A FATAL SERIES NOVEL She looked into the dead face of the man she'd dined with the
Standing over the body of a Supreme Court nominee, Lieutenant Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up; but it's also attracting a lot of unwanted media attention and blinding flashbulbs.
The pressure is on for Sam to find Sinclair's killer, but a new lead in her father's unsolved shooting puts her in unexpected danger. When long-buried secrets threaten to derail her relationship with Nick, Sam realizes that while justice can be blind, mixing romance with politics has the potential to be fatal.
The murders take the story in two different directions at the same time. The main one is of the Supreme Court nominee and most of the story revolves around this case, but in a super close second we have one that may be a lead into Sam's father's case - a very good lead that takes Sam on a roller coaster ride of emotions.
Through all of this their relationship has a whole new set of trials. While they seemed so strong together at the beginning, there were times I was afraid they wouldn't be able to work out a compromise and make it all work. To keep with the romance theme, there are two more hovering in the background just to make sure the reader gets enough, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of them.
An engaging story line with some spectacular characters really seem to bring this series together. I can't wait to see what Sam and Nick have to tackle next in their lives as they try to make their relationship into what they both want and need.
