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?

Reader Review . . . 

Kelly Warren lost her father five months ago.  Although evidence points to suicide, and the police believe that to be the case,  Kelly refuses to accept that.  She is steadfast in her belief that her father was murdered, but with no apparent motive, the case has stalled.  When she finds a small piece of evidence, there is enough doubt raised in the mind of Detective Cole Taylor to reopen the case.  As they get closer to the answer, they also draw closer to one another.  Will they be able to find the answer without losing their one chance at love?

In this third and last installment of the Guardians of Justice series, Irene Hannon has spun a spellbinder that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. Although this is a series, it is not necessary to read the preceding installments in order to enjoy this book.  The characters are believable, and while Kelly's Christian faith is clearly portrayed, it is not emphasized over the rest of the plot.  A truly enjoyable read and worthy of 4 stars.
