Lethal Action by Rachel Dylan

5 Stars!

Attorney Hope Finch is a rising star at the prestigious New York law firm of Rice & Taylor and is used to high-stakes litigation. But when she’s sent to what she thought was a small, sleepy town in Georgia, she is unprepared for the dangerous turn of events that threatens her life and career.

FBI Special Agent Gabe Marino knows that something sinister is happening in his hometown of Maxwell, Georgia. But even he doesn’t know how big the threat is until he’s assigned to protect a visiting big city lawyer. As Gabe investigates the illegal activity linked to Hope’s client, he tries to caution her, but she ignores his warnings—until it’s her life that’s in jeopardy.

When Hope becomes the target in a deadly corporate cover-up that is directly tied to the biggest trial the town of Maxwell has ever seen, she and Gabe have to find a way to work together. Hope and Gabe race against the clock to uncover the true threat, but can Gabe keep Hope safe in the face of danger or will time run out on them both?

I have read three other books by Rachel and this is by far my favorite! I love courtroom dramas and this one was expertly done! I just loved the way this story flowed. It has a great set of characters. It had a great mystery and a lot of suspense but also some nice romance to it! This all blended together very well!

There was excellent character development! I loved Hope and had no trouble picturing her and getting to know her personality. I think I would have liked her in real life. And Gabe was a real nice leading man, protective with a strong personality but not too pushy.

This is full of suspense and some twists and turns, but also didn't feel overdone at all. I read just right and very real. I love a book where you can clearly picture everything in your mind and this was one of those books! Rachel does an excellent job weaving in detailed and fairly complex suspense. But it is done in such a way that is very clear and easy to follow. I didn't get confused or lost in the details.

I am going to be reviewing another Rachel Dylan book - Picture Perfect Murder on April 19th so come back and check it out!

Thank you Rachel for sending me this great little mystery for my honest review!
