                If you like romantic suspense, then you’ll want to read Lethal Legacy.  Irene Hannon has created a story with a strong spiritual heroine, a soul searching hero, and a cast of supporting characters from her prior two novels in the series “Guardians of Justice”.  This is the third book in the series.  The author has done a good job in developing the characters and their emotions.
                Kelly Warren doesn’t believe her father would ever kill himself.  He was a Christian and would never even consider suicide.  The detective in charge of the case does close the case based on the evidence, and it is ruled a suicide.  Kelly receives new information on the case.  She goes to the police with this evidence, but the detective who handled the case is on vacation so Detective Cole Taylor speaks with her.  She finds the detective good-looking and with a polite and caring attitude.
                Cole listens to Ms. Warren, but doesn’t believe she has enough evidence to reopen the case.  He finds Kelly attractive and intelligent.  He promises to look into the case for her.  As he looks over the case file for background information, he discovers some oddities that he investigates.  He keeps in touch with Kelly fairly regularly keeping her updated on his progress.  He finally has enough evidence to reopen the case.  Kelly also contacts Cole often to relay any new information she discovers as she searches her father’s house for more evidence.
                As the case progresses, so do the feelings between Kelly and Cole.  Cole and Kelly agree not to pursue a relationship until the case is solved.  But Cole walked away from God five years ago, and even though Kelly has strong feelings for Cole, if he doesn’t have faith in God, she won’t pursue a relationship with Cole.  Why did he turn his back on God?  During the course of further investigation, readers get to see the interaction between Cole and his family, Kelly and her best friend as well as a criminal and his family.  Is Kelly’s father a victim of homicide?  Is he the person she thought he was?  Why has someone attacked Kelly?  Can Cole keep her safe before it’s too late?  Can Cole learn to trust God again?
                Fans of mystery, suspense and intrigue will want to pick up a copy of this book.  So set aside some time for a good story and prepare to be entertained.
My rating is four stars out of five.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
