Another great romantic suspense novel with characters readers will fall in love with and a storyline that never slows down!
Erin Larson is a criminal psychologist whose career and life are almost over after a boating accident. Shortly thereafter, she learns that her mother has tried to commit suicide. Taking a leave of absence from her job to care for her mother, she moves to Montana and focuses her attention on a podcast of missing person cold cases that go all the way back to her childhood. Nathan Campbell’s case calls to Erin when her mother is in the hospital bringing their past relationship to the surface. When his father is shot investigating a case, Nathan asks Erin to help him get to the bottom of what is happening. As they work together, they determine they are being targeted and the more they uncover the more danger they are all in.
Deadly Target started great but ended even better. I loved the turn it took, sucking me into the story even more. Each problem Erin encounters leads to another clue being uncovered about a past she wants to leave behind. Goddard did a fantastic job of creating a story and characters that I couldn’t help but root for and want to know all of their deepest, darkest secrets. The story flowed at a very smooth pace and never made me want to put the book down. I finished the story in a single day.
Erin is a strong female lead that carries the story in a way that is easy to follow and believable. This is the second book in the series but can be read on its own without missing out on much from the first in the series. There are some secondary characters from the first that make an appearance, but it won’t take away from the story itself. I love the way it wrapped up and characters we thought weren’t important played an important role by the end. I recommend this book to fans of romantic suspense and if you haven’t given Elizabeth Goddard a chance, I would pick this one up immediately.
I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
