With suspicious murders and random deaths that don’t seem random once the pieces are put together, Lisa Harris has crafted a great thriller that readers will enjoy from beginning to end.
Caitlyn Lindsey has seen her team members dying off one by one. What seemed as random accidents or murders at first are now turning into a pattern that is anything but random. As a research scientist, she knows that the work they do is very sensitive and if it falls into the wrong hands the outcome could be disastrous. Once she starts connecting the dots, she reaches out to one of the first victim’s husbands, Josh Solomon. Josh thought the men responsible for the death of his wife were behind bars but when Caitlyn comes to him with her concerns, he wonders if justice has really been served. Together they must try to find out who is after her and what their end game really is before it is too late.
I have read a lot of Lisa Harris’s books, as well as a lot of romantic suspense in general, and one of the nicest things about Deadly Intentions was the connection I felt between the characters. There is a true connection between Caitlyn and Josh; the way they have a history back when Josh’s wife was alive helped me to believe she would actually come to him and not make it seem a random connection. There is a great pace to the novel that keeps the story moving and readers will easily be able to follow. I read this in two days and thought it was the best one of Harris’s books I have read yet. There was lots of great suspense to go along with the romantic aspect of the story, especially towards the end. Caitlyn was a great protagonist, strong with plenty of weaknesses, able to ask for help but also help others along the way. My only negative issue would be the tie up at the end, which seemed a little rushed and I would have liked a little more backstory on one of our bad guys as to how he actually fit into the role he was playing. I do recommend this to readers that love romantic suspense novels and are looking for a great fast paced read.
