Lethal Legacy

Lethal Legacy
by Irene Hannon

From the publisher:

Kelly Warren is on a mission to prove her father's death wasn't suicide, but Detective Cole Taylor doesn't put much credence in her claim. Nothing in his case review suggests foul play until Kelly ends up in the emergency room with a suspicious life-threatening medical condition. The incident strikes him as more than just coincidence. Digging deeper, he discovers she's linked to a long-ago crime. Is history repeating itself? And who wants Kelly silenced?

My take: 

I absolutely loved this book. I was so excited to see it was up for review and anticipated reading Irene Hannon's latest suspense novel. Hannon certainly didn't disappoint with this one! I love how she is able to weave a romance in with the suspense. Each page had me eagerly turning to see what would happen next. I found myself really caring about what happened to the main characters, Kelly and Cole. I also loved finding out what happened to Liz and Jake from Fatal Judgment and Alison and Mitch from Deadly Pursuit (see my review on Deadly Pursuit here. Overall, this was a wonderful ending to the Guardians of Justice series.
