Fatal Judgment...Review

About the book:
U.S. Marshal Jake Taylor has seen plenty of action during his years in law enforcement. But he'd rather go back to Iraq than face his next assignment: protection detail for federal judge Liz Michaels. His feelings toward the coldhearted workaholic haven't warmed in the five years since she drove her husband--and Jake's best friend--to despair...and possible suicide.

As the danger mounts and Jake gets to know Liz better, he's forced to revise his opinion of her. And when it becomes clear that an unknown enemy may want her dead, the stakes are raised. Because now both her life--and his heart--are in danger.

Full of suspense and romance,
Fatal Judgment is a thrilling story that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.

I like Irene Hannon.  I've enjoyed everything I've read by her.  Like her Heroes of Quantico series, this one is fast-paced and exciting with the right amount of suspense and the right amount of romance.  The characters are well developed and likeable.  The premise is one that could be taken from headlines today:  disgruntled people with a grudge against the government who attack politicians and government representatives.

Liz has her faith tested when her sister is murdered and she finds herself under federal protection.  As they are drawn together, Liz is able to help Jake rediscover his faith after the loss of his wife.  Together, they must then figure out who is out to kill her.

I read the book in an afternoon.  I didn't want to put it down.  Obviously we know which characters will finally get together in the end, but it's the trip that is an exhilarating ride.  Irene Hannon has a terrific gift with conversation and character development. 

This is the first in the Guardians of Justice series and I eagerly anticipate the next book.  Recurring characters from The Heroes of Quantico series show up here in minor roles and it's nice seeing Mark and Nick again.

Thanks to my local library for having a copy I could borrow.  You can purchase your own copy here.

Read 4/11
