Fatal Jeopardy by Marie Force is the seventh book in the “Fatal” romantic suspense series. Carina Press, March 2014
Washington, D.C., Police Lieutenant Sam Holland and her husband, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, have been looking forward to a quiet Thanksgiving with their son. But any thoughts of a restful holiday are dashed when Sam and Nick return home to a gruesome scene: Sam’s seventeen-year-old niece Brooke, barely conscious and covered in blood on their front stoop.
With lines between personal and professional blurring in this emotionally charged, deeply personal case, Sam is relying on Nick more than ever for support. But when suspicious images from the night in question appear on social media, Sam begins to wonder if her niece is telling her everything she knows about what really happened. And when Nick questions her tactics—and her ethics—as she races against the clock, Sam will need to decide how far she’s willing to go to prove Brooke is a victim, not a murderer.
From the first page until, the conclusion, this fast-paced and non-stop action drama pulled me immediately into the lives of Sam and Nick and I didn’t want to get off this roller-coaster ride that had its ups, downs and twists that was hard to put down. The author did a great job in keeping this story fresh, light, romantic and suspenseful as we watch Sam and her team do what they do best and this is close their case. I just love watching the love affair between Sam and Nick grow as they welcome others into their intimate circle and the adventures that encompass their lives. This fabulously terrific series gets better and better with each book written and I can’t wait to see where we are going next with Sam, Nick and their friends.
