Review: Kill Shot by Susan Sleeman

My Thoughts

HOLY COW! This was an excellent book. I loved the characters and the action. The author dealt with the issue of homeless vets, PTSD, complex and dysfunctional family relationships while providing an engaging story.

Olivia and Rick were great characters and I enjoyed watching how they each grew and changed in the story.  The action was entertaining and at times touching. Very realistic characters with the good, bad, and ugly of life represented.

This was a book two in the series. I did not read book one but I didn’t feel lost in the story, the author gives enough back story to make me want to read the first one. Definitely works as a standalone.

More about this Book

Suspense and romance combine in Susan Sleeman’s thrilling new novel about an FBI agent who must team up with a beautiful therapist to stop a killer with a deadly new weapon.

Some fears haunt you forever….

As the ballistics and weapon’s expert for the FBI’s special task force nicknamed the White Knights, Rick Cannon has known the Department of Defense was developing self-steering bullets. Rick feared these smart bullets–which have one hundred percent accuracy that can turn even a novice into a lethal sniper–would eventually end up in the hands of the wrong people. But since the ammunition was still in the development stage, he figured they had plenty of time before that happened. He was wrong. Dead wrong.

Until they become reality.

When a homeless vet is killed with a smart bullet, it’s clear that the ammunition has been stolen, and the Knights are called in to find the thief and stop the killings. But they aren’t the only ones desperate to find the killer. Therapist Olivia Dobbs is well known for her success in counseling military veterans with PTSD. When she discovers one of her clients moments after he is murdered, she becomes both the FBI’s prime witness, and suspect.

Despite the mutual attraction that immediately sparks between them, Rick can’t–no he won’t–let Olivia interfere with his investigation. But when the sniper trains his rifle on her, Rick must recall all the skills he learned as a Marine sniper to make sure the next bullet fired isn’t a kill shot that takes Olivia out.

Review: Blind Betrayal by Nancy Mehl

About this Book

Deputy U.S. Marshal Casey Sloane has worked at the St. Louis Marshals office for two years and is given a routine assignment to help transport a reporter to D.C. to testify before a grand jury. Valerie, the reporter, was writing a story about an up-and-coming environmentalist who suddenly disappeared and, she later discovered, whose backers purportedly have ties to a terrorist.

When the seemingly ordinary assignment suddenly takes a shocking turn, Casey is forced to put aside her own feelings about the unexpected reappearance of a man from her past as she and two other Marshals take Valerie on the run. And as it becomes dangerously clear Valerie’s testimony has even bigger implications than they knew, they’ll do whatever it takes to make it out alive.

My Review

This was an enjoyable book from start to finish! I loved Casey: her spunk and her heart. She was not the perfect person. She had some deep seated issues that added a realness to her story. Likewise, I liked E.J. and the chemistry between them was excellent.

I enjoed this story. It paced very well and didn’t drag. I also noticed that this book didn’t follow the pattern of the first two in the series, which I appriecated. This was all in all an excellent story with strong characters.

Definitely look forward to more books by this author.

If. you have never ready Nancy Mehl but enjoy Terri Blackstock, Brandilyn Collins, or Christy Barritt you’ll enjoy Nancy Mehl.
