BOOK REVIEW- TRUTH SEEKER
Women are turning up dead, and Lisa O'Malley has a habit of walking into crime scenes, curious. She's a forensic pathologist, and mysteries are her domain. U.S. Marshall Quinn Diamond has found loving her is easier than keeping her safe. Lisa's found the killer, and now she's missing too. AMAZON 3 STAR
Introducing the O'Malleys, an inspirational group of seven, all abandoned or orphaned as teens, who have made the choice to become a loyal and committed family. They have chosen their own surname, O'Malley, and have stood by each other through moments of joy and heartache. Their stories are told in CBA best-selling, inspirational romantic suspense novels that rock your heart and restore strength and hope to your spirit.
Good Main Characters, with quite the mystery going on. There have been quite a few cold case like murders. Do they connect and if they do, how? This is one of the main themes and well as the attraction that was developing between Lisa and Quinn. And the final theme of faith in God and whether or not Lisa's indifference to the question about receiving Jesus can be changed.
Of course there is a HEA ending, sort of because there was a lot of sadness that had to be overcome even after most of the questions are answered. Both Lisa and Quinn had grief to work through.
And Lisa needed to do a lot of physical healing from all the times, she became the one needing rescuing from dangerous situations. She got injured a lot. Quinn was steady and patient with her, often getting closer to her in ways even her family hadn't. She loved her family, but she also needed space and Quinn got that, most of the time. Sure he made mistakes but most of the time he just knew when not to push. They made for interesting reading as they circled each other. Quinn appreciated the fact that he had been accepted into the very tight knit, open to very few, O'Malley family circle.
The author did give some very good, factual information into the investigation that was ongoing and gave good insight to some of Lisa's often gruesome job. The details weren't so raw that made it awful to read though. The mysteries twisted and turned often, making me wonder, just who the murder was and how it all fit together. So it kept my interest.
I enjoy reading about the O'Malley family and this was a pretty good story, with lots of detailed information.
I'm not sure I would say its a favorite though so that explains my giving it 3 Stars o Amazon.
By the way, I do like the cover for the ebook.
