I've read a lot of Dee Henderson's drama/romances,and this was in that same genre. I wasn't sure I would relate to these characters who are young and professional, and the romance part was a little much for me, but the action got me so involved! I couldn't put it down until I found out exactly how it would end, even though it was predictable. Irene Hannon's writing is very good and engaging. Her characters are portrayed so vividly that you feel you know them. I will read her next one in this series, so that says it all!
I haven't read a book by Irene Hannon that I haven't absolutely loved and this one is no exception. There is a timeless quality about her writing that pulls a reader in and holds her fast. I didn't want to let go of Fatal Judgment until I'd finished the very last page.
There is an unhurried feel to Jake and Liz's romance despite the taut plot and tense timeline. Pages peppered with small revelations, guarded looks, beginning relationship jitters_all build romantic tension and increase the reader's enjoyment.
And the suspense! Hannon has an eerie way of delving into a criminal's mind, fleshing them out to be something more then pure evil. Complex, raw, emotional, the suspense drives the plot and keeps the pages turning.
If you like nail-biting reads, you'll love this one!
