"Lethal Legacy" Book Review {Giveaway}

I was so excited to get my hands on the latest Irene Hannon book, but sad that this is the last one in the Guardians of Justice series! 

If you haven't read the series, you can download book number one, Fatal Judgement, free from Amazon for a limited time. And don't miss my reviews of Fatal Judgement and book two,  Deadly Pursuit. (Note: All three of these amazing books can be read as a stand alone novel, so don't worry about going in order!)

Irene Hannon is an award winning author and you will know why the first time you open one of her books.

About the book: 
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?
About the author:   
Irene Hannon is the author of more than 35 novels, including the bestselling Heroes of Quantico and Guardians of Justice series. Her books have been honored with two coveted RITA awards from Romance Writers of America, a Carol Award, a HOLT Medallion, a Daphne du Maurier Award and two Reviewers' Choice Awards from RT Book Reviews magazine. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri.  

For more information about her and her books, visit her web site at and follow her on Twitter at @IreneHannon.

My thoughts:  
What can I say about Irene that I haven't already said? She is an amazing story teller and I always enjoy her books. I so appreciate a thriller that has romance, but it doesn't take over the story. I also love that she does her research and carefully weaves a story that 'could' happen in real life. Every time I finish one of her books, I want to run off and join the FBI or NCIS. 

Lethal Legacy did not disappoint me at all. It was a great story from beginning to end. Kelly was someone believable and I liked her from the start. I loved having characters from the other two books make appearances. Like I said before, I am sad this series is over! Cole is a great hero and you will want him to be with Kelly as much as I did before the book ends. The bad guys, well I hate to give anything away, but they are more of the great characters that Irene Hannon is famous for! 

The prize and the fine print:
The winner will be mailed one copy of Lethal Legacy via media mail.

This mailing is limited to USA (including APO/FPO) and CAN addresses. (Sorry, the costs to ship overseas were killing my blog budget!) 

I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. The opinions expressed are all mine and I was not required to give a positive review.

Lethal Legacy is available August 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
