It was great to see Morgan Dane, along with Lance and Lincoln. back again in this 6th book. It certainly didn't disappoint. There was darkness, fear, suspense, humanity and much more in this book. The kidnapping of someone close to them all added hightened emotions, and urgency, to the book. I don't want to spoil the story for readers, so I won't go into detail. I first discovered this author and this series about a year ago, and read the first three books one after the other. Since then, I wait with anticipation for the next in the series. This is a great book, well deserving of the 5 stars I have given it. If you haven't read this series before, it is important to read the books in order in order to understand the developing relationships between the characters. This author writes a gripping tale without the need for excessive profanities.
Melinda Leigh has developed strong characters through the Morgan Dane series. It is wonderful to read about her family na loved ones as they develop their relationships and work to solve very pressing cases.a great A great read.
I really enjoy the Morgan Dane books, but be warned; this is not the place to jump into the series. Start at the beginning and read through, because by the time you get to this book, the sixth in the series, the principal characters will start to feel like friends and you’ll be much more invested in the story here when Lincoln Sharpe’s girlfriend Olivia is kidnapped at the very beginning of the book.
Morgan and her two partners in their PI business, Lincoln and Morgan’s partner Lance, spend most of the book chasing red herrings trying to find Olivia. Persistence and good old-fashioned detective work eventually pay off, however, and there’s a dramatic confrontation to rescue Olivia and save her life. I have to say the reason she was kidnapped was totally a new one on me and, as a writer myself, made me laugh, but it’s true that publishing can be as cutthroat a business as any other and with a big contract at stake, the motive was certainly established.
Long-term readers of the series who are invested in Morgan and Lance as a couple will find the ending of this one very satisfying. I’m not sure if it’s the case, but this does read rather as though the series is ending here, and if it does I’d say it’s a pretty good spot to close it out. I very much enjoyed the read, and the series overall. I give it five stars, but with the proviso that this isn’t a standalone and I don’t think you’ll enjoy it all that much if you haven’t read the rest of the series.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review via NetGalley.
Well done Melinda Lee, this one kept me guessing all the way through. This is a nice cozy series without too much horror and graphic detail, but enough drama to be enjoyable. The characters are great, and I have found I’ve got very fond of our loving couple and their enjoyable romance, let alone the darling little girls. And this one shop takes the center of attention right to the end, then it’s Morgan and lances turn. Not too much to dislike, just a nice enjoyable read. Look forward to seeing what happens next to a loving couple.
This series just gets better. The characters continue to grow, but not as super heroes, as real people with flaws and strong hearts. I read this book in one sitting, which is always a problem because it means longer to wait till the next one.
