Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon

A stalker with deadly intent . . .

A woman who protects children . . .

An ex-Navy SEAL turned police detective.

Social worker Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children. But now it seems she needs protecting. When her tormentor's attentions take a violent turn, she calls in reinforcements--her police-detective brother, Cole, and his new partner, ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat and the danger intensifies, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Because protecting Alison has become more than a job; his future depends on keeping her safe.

Filled with nail-biting suspense and heart-melting romance, Deadly Pursuit is Irene Hannon's storytelling at its very best.

My review:
I have several favorite authors, and Irene Hannon is one of them. She writes a great Christian suspense novel with a little romance thrown in.

This book is the second in the Guardians of Justice Series, and as she has been doing with each book, Hannon just keeps getting better and better. The plot in this one involved a stalker, and I was quickly pulled into the story. When I read a book like this, I just settle in for the long haul, and I did read it in one evening. I loved the characters, some of which had been in the book that precedes this one, along with some new characters.

The book all too soon came to a nail-biting conclusion, and I shut the cover on another great Irene Hanon book.
