August 1, 2012 Guardians of Justice (Book 3)
The police say her father's death was suicide. But Kelly Warren says it was murder--and she has new evidence that she believes proves it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn't put much credence in her claim, and nothing in his case review suggests foul play. But when Kelly ends up in the emergency room with a suspicious life-threatening medical condition, the incident strikes him as more than just coincidence. Digging deeper, he discovers she's linked to a long-ago crime. Is history repeating itself? And who wants Kelly silenced?

With her trademark high-intensity action and taut suspense, Irene Hannon closes out her Guardians of Justice series with a story of old grudges and budding romance that is sure to increase her substantial fan base.

My take on this book:
Irene Hannon has become a go to author for me whenever I want to read a suspense filled mystery that also blends a christian message together with just enough clues to keep me turning the pages in anticipation right up until the end. I have enjoyed reading the Guardians of Justice series and while I looked forward to reading this book, I was sort of sad as well, because "Lethal Legacy" is the final book in the series.

There are so many things that I enjoyed bout this book, but overall it's the author's style of writing that captivates me. She has an uncanny way of allowing us a glimpse inside the killers mind revealing what he is  thinking while keeping us guessing as to who the killer might be, and the killer isn't always easy to figure out, but it always makes sense in the end. Since this book is the third and final book in the "Guardian of Justice" series while I believe that it can be read as a stand alone work I highly recommend that the entire series should be read in order to get the full scope of the story.  If your a fan of suspense,mystery with a light romance, and a christian theme woven in your going to enjoy this series. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
