When a Heart Stops...Review
A killer's deadly game needs new players . . . but someone's about to change the rules.
As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder--especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush.
As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again. And when Serena's own life seems at stake, she must decide if the secret she has been keeping has put her next on the killer's hit list. Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?
Serena Hopkins deals with death daily in her job as a medical examiner. But when a familiar serial killer begins targeting Serena's former classmates, she must find out why she might be next on the list. Second in the Deadly Reunions series, the book can stand alone but, as with any series, the stories are richer for having been read in order and the back history is somewhat necessary for understanding. Suspense and thrillers are not my normal genre, but I really liked the first book in this series, When the Smoke Clears and When a Heart Stops is just as thrilling and exciting as the first one. The characters are terrific and the tension is just right. I'm looking forward to the next book and finding out how everything ties together and who the senator is and why he wants Jillian.
