Irene Hannon's books are entertaining, fast reads that always include strong Christian characters, spiritual growth and often scripture applications. In Fatal Judgement, judge Liz Michaels loses her sister when an assassin shoots the wrong woman. Jake Taylor is assigned protection duty and is not too happy. He and the judge have a history: Jake believes that Liz is an uncaring workaholic who is responsible for the possible suicide of his college buddy, Doug, who was also her husband. As the two work together, Jake discovers that he may have been misinformed, and protecting Liz becomes more important to him than ever.
While I do feel these books are rather similar in plot line, they are fun to read, and there are always some little twists that keep up the excitement. I especially appreciate the character struggling with faith, who is led to a closer walk with the Lord. That is what life is all about. We need to follow hard after Jesus. We need to shine His Light into others' lives around us. I believe Irene Hannon succeeds in demonstrating this in her stories. I will be reviewing Deadly Pursuit, Book 2 of the Guardians of Justice series, featuring Jake's sister Alison.
I loved her Heroes of Quantico series. See my reviews for each one here: Against All Odds, An Eye for an Eye, and In Harm's Way. To find out more about Irene, check out her website.
