It is the second of the series and picks up as Jena is still getting over being held hostage by a serial killer.
Jena is the head medical examiner and Jordan is her best friend and lead detective in the police force. They decide to head our for a little R&R with strict instructions not to be disturbed. While they are relaxing and trying to shake off the close call with the serial killer, they are not aware that Jena is being watched. Jordan does notice some strange footsteps on their last day there and it puts her automatically on high alert.
Michael is usually Jordan’s partner, but with her on vacation, he is partnered with the new guy, Corie.
What Corie lacks in experience he seems to make up for with his spot on instincts. This is a good thing as a dead body soon appears and all is not what it seems. This case has some twists and turns that you may not seem coming.
This book kept me very drawn into it because it was like reading two plots in one book. On the one hand, you have the person spying on Jena. Then on the other side of the coin, you have the murder that has more twist than a country back road. The author does a great job in keeping the story flowing smoothly. The only error that really stood out to me was the use of the word “resentment” instead of “resisting”. If there were more errors, I did not notice them. It does seem to have been professional edited.
I was very impressed with how real the characters seemed. They were very well thought out and they were not your typical cliche` detectives. Most stories that I have read, the detectives are hardened by their years on the force and they do not have close ties with their coworkers. That is not the case in this book and to me, it made the book that much more interesting.
I give this book 4 out of 4 stars because of the writing skills of this author. Now I will say, if you are not into cliffhangers, you may not want to read this book until you have the next one on hand. I plan to purchase it really soon. Another thing that I liked about this book was that it was not filled with loads of cuss words and /or sex scenes. While I have no problem with either of those two things playing into the story, I just do not think that it would have helped this story in any way.

I plan on getting the first book, and I think there is a book after this one also.
Great Review! :

Great Review! :
I only dislike cliff hangers when the next book is not even published yet. This one, I believe, already has the next book published.
