Book Review: Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon

Book 2 of the Guardians of Justice series is another fast-paced romantic suspense by Irene Hannon.  In Deadly Pursuit, Alison Taylor is tricked into going on a date with her brother Cole's new partner, Mitch.  Meanwhile, Mitch feels tricked into taking her as well.  They are both pleasantly surprised.  When Alison starts receiving prank phone calls and frightening gifts, Mitch feels as protective as Alison's two brothers.  Alison's stalker progresses quickly from mildly disturbing to alarmingly threatening, and the three men join forces to keep her safe.  Meanwhile, they are all busy with their jobs; Alison is a social worker/ children's protection agent, which works into the plot beautifully.
The plot did again seem very similar to the last one; however I connected with the characters well, and I loved Erik, a young man with Down's Syndrome.  I felt a little sympathy for the antagonist, but his character/standards seemed to decline rather fast.  I really like Cole (Jake and Alison's brother), and look forward to reading his story in the next book.  Although, I pegged the main events of the book, things happened fast and kept me turning pages.  The faith element was pretty light in this one.  I would love to see a little stronger Christian message.   Overall, I did enjoy this book and would recommend it.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  It is Now Available, September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
