When Aurora Daniels becomes the target of someone seeking their own twisted justice, Sheriff Beckett Marsh is the only one who can rescue her. As a public defender, Aurora has angered plenty of people in town—and in her past. And while Beckett constantly clashes with the feisty lawyer professionally, it's his duty to protect and serve. Guarding her 24/7 is now his sole assignment. He may not have been able to save his fiancée from a dangerous felon, but he'll do whatever it takes to keep Aurora alive. Even if working with her to catch and convict this ruthless killer puts his heart in the crosshairs.
Not to Be Missed!
Jessica Patch has written another winner filled with heart-racing suspense! Or is that heart-racing romance? The answer is: "Yes!"
Aurora Daniels, a defense attorney, and Beckett Marsh, the sheriff, (both introduced in a previous book) are quite an unlikely pair - after all, they are on different sides of the law. Sometimes, though, God has the perfect match in the most unlikely places. They shouldn't fall for each other, but they do, oh, they do! The dialogue between the two main characters is priceless Patch, sometimes funny, sometimes hits right to the heart. This is a book not to be missed by romantic suspense fans!
Although the characters were introduced in a previous book, this book can be read as a standalone.
I received an advanced copy of the book for honest review.
You won't want to put it down!
Final Verdict is another winner by Jessica Patch! I have loved every book she has written, but this is definitely one of my favorites. First, she writes such realistic characters who have real life struggles with their faith, their pasts, their families, etc. The she manages to develop a relationship between some of the most unlikely people (a defense attorney and a sheriff) and have the readers rooting for them.
What I probably love the most about a Jessica Patch novel is the suspense she creates that has the reader hooked from page one! When it becomes very obvious that someone is after Aurora (the attorney), Beckett (the sheriff) makes it his mission to keep her safe. The list of possible suspects after her gets longer and longer as the book becomes more action-packed and edge-of-your-seat suspenseful. Just when I thought I had it figured out who was behind all of the events happening, another twist was thrown in. It definitely kept me guessing until the very end.
An added bonus is readers get to meet a few characters from her new Security Specialists series which will be out this summer. Can't wait!
Just make sure when you start reading Final Verdict, you have some spare time because you are not going to want to put it down!!
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
