Lethal Legacy by Irene Hannon
Revell, August 1, 2012

The police say her father’s death was suicide. But Kelly Warren says it was murder–and she has new evidence that she believes proves it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn’t put much credence in her claim, and nothing in his case review suggests foul play. But when 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?

With her trademark high-intensity action and taut suspense, Irene Hannon closes out her Guardians of Justice series with a story of old grudges and budding romance that is sure to increase her substantial fan base.

This is the final book in the Guardians of Justice series and this was my favourite! I loved Cole and Kelly, they fitted so well together as a couple. I really liked how they related to each other. Kelly, is strong but on the quieter side and I really liked that. For me, she was easy to relate to. Cole, really shone here. His is a hero worthy of Kelly! The mystery surrounding Kelly’s father death goes much deeper than anyone expected and it made for a richer story.

The drama and action slowly built up and then steadily ploughed on through to the end. For me the climax of the book was heart stopping and had me desperate for the resolution. My favourite in this series. Wonderful book!
