Book Review – Deadly Intentions

Deadly Intentions by Lisa Harrisdi-51y1IpralVL._SY346_

Research scientist Caitlyn Lindsey is convinced that someone is taking out her team one by one. First, a friend and research partner was killed in a home invasion. Three months ago, her boss died in a suspicious car accident. Four days ago, another partner supposedly committed suicide. And now Caitlyn herself has miraculously survived a hit-and-run. Afraid for her life with nowhere to turn, she reaches out to one of the victim’s husbands, Detective Josh Solomon.

Though initially skeptical about Caitlyn’s theory, Josh soon realizes that the attack that took his wife’s life was anything but random. Now the two of them must discover the truth about who is after Caitlyn’s team–and what their end game is–before it’s too late.

In this nail-biting thriller, award-winning author Lisa Harris will have you believing that there’s no such thing as random.

My Thoughts

This is another fast paced, action packed suspense novel from Lisa Harris. I’ve read and enjoyed all (or almost all) of her earlier books, and this one was no exception!

I had lots of questions as I read. I loved mysteries, and always try to solve the crime/figure out ‘whodunit’ before the end. This one had me baffled.

I found Caitlyn to be an awesome heroine. Brave, pulling off risky things at times…which is one of the reasons I like to read suspense (rather than actually being in the middle of it myself), it gives opportunity to experience the thrills of catching criminals without any of the dangers that come with the job.

Because this is a romantic suspense, it quickly becomes obvious that the romance will happen between Caitlyn and Josh, her former colleague’s (the one who got killed during a burglary) husband. The romance felt a bit too speedy to me, and just a little unrealistic.

Other than that, I completely enjoyed this book, and would highly recommend it.

The suspense is top notch, the action incredible, the danger…well, yes it’s dangerous! It kept me turning pages until I reached the end!
