It’s been awhile since I’ve written a review but this month I have several books to share with you. The first is Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon.
Deadly Pursuit is masterly written and intense, the story will keep your attention. The setting is very familiar to me–St. Louis and I felt that it was portrayed accurately. There are elements in this book that I found disturbing and almost made me stop reading as the first major thing that happens involves a ???? I won’t tell you because if you want to read it, you’ll want that same sick feeling I got.
I almost didn’t review it because of what happens in the beginning of the book almost made me stop reading. But I did like the suspense and the writing. This book provided by publisher for a fair review.
Alison Taylor is a young, single social worker recovering from a serious accident and a broken relationship, kept busy by her demanding job and her faithful canine companion, Bert. But when her police-detective brother pushes her into a blind date with his new colleague, ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Morgan, she’s not sorry—and neither is Mitch. When she begins to receive anonymous calls and threatening gifts, however, their relationship shifts into professional mode as well. And as Mitch works to protect the woman who is fast stealing his heart, he can only pray they’ll find her tormentor before the man’s game turns deadly.
Once again, Hannon delivers an accelerating thrill ride that will keep readers up late into the night.

Irene, I will be getting your next book. I love your stories. And I do get why you had to put that in the book. It was just disturbing. You wrote that character so realistically.
Hi, Diana. Thank you for reviewing my latest book, Deadly Pursuit. The incident you refer to is disturbing, but certainly gives insight into a couple of the characters. I hope you'll give my next book a try. Lethal Legacy is also intensely suspenseful, but no incidents like the one you reference! It will be out next summer. Irene Hannon
