Note:  I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book.  The opinions shared in this review are solely my responsibility.  Other reviews can be read at  Also follow me on Twitter @lcjohnson1988
                Full Disclosure is the latest novel from Dee Henderson, her first in several years.  She continues in the genre of romantic suspense that she is so well-known for via her O’Malley Series and Uncommon Heroes series.  The main characters in this book are involved in law enforcement with a multitude of family, friends, and co-workers as a supporting cast.
                Paul is the head of an FBI team that profiles, tracks, and captures murderers.  He is the oldest son of a wealthy businessman.  He is adopted, but treated as the firstborn son.  He will inherit his father’s businesses when he dies so he is well-versed in business, finances, as well as the law due to his being a cop.  He is a Christian and has a strong relationship with the Lord.  He has a large family and they are close.  He has decided that he wants to settle down, get married, and have his own family.  Is Ann the right woman for him?  Can he overcome her need for solitude?  Can he earn her trust and her heart?  They begin to contact each other more and more as Paul works on a case that has been on the books for over 10 years.  A female assassin with 30 kills credited to her.  Will Paul finally catch this criminal and succeed where his former boss failed? 
                Ann is the Midwest Homicide Investigator (MHI).  She is called in when a case gets too difficult for the local law enforcement agency to solve.  She has a case that she doesn’t want and realizes it is linked to a federal investigation so she meets Paul and gives him clues that jump starts his stalled investigation.  She doesn’t like being in the limelight and downplays her accomplishments.  She has many friends who have valuable connections; she even has a friendship with the Vice President of the United States.  She loves to fly small airplanes, write stories about her friends, and take long walks where she talks to God.  She never feels alone because she always has God.  She isn’t looking to settle down.  She is very cautious in her relationships and won’t risk making the first move to initiate anything more than cordiality.  After meeting Paul and working with him on a case, her thoughts turn to him more and more.  Is he the one she might risk giving her heart to?  She has been burned in the past, so is very wary.
                While there is action in the book at various points, there is a lot of time spent on the development of the relationship between Ann and Paul.  In my opinion, there were too many pages of this slowly developing relationship that could have been filled with action instead or eliminated altogether.  This makes for some slow reading.  The romance between the two characters is good just too much video chatting.  It is good to see strong family and friend support, protectiveness, and love.  The characters have a willingness to go the extra mile for a friend without expecting anything in return.
My rating is 3 stars.

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…
