Reunited by Danger by Caro Jl Post

Book description:

When a former classmate is murdered at Detective Caleb Lyons's ten-year high school reunion, he knows the victim's old group of friends are keeping secrets. That includes Cedar Key, Florida, police officer Amber Kingston. Back in school, Amber was headed for trouble, but now she's as dedicated to the law as he is. As he works overtime to get the pretty cop to open up to him, Amber and her friends receive messages threatening payback for past deeds. And her friends keep by one. But protecting Amber and unmasking a murderer isn't just the widowed detective's shot at redemption--it's his unexpected second chance at love.

My review:

  I have read and reviewed two of this author's books, and enjoyed both of them. The first was not suspense, but was a great read. The second was suspense, which is my favorite genre', and I was happy to have the chance to review the next book in the suspense series Cedar Key.

  Reunited by Danger had a great plot: six high school friends being picked off one by one ten years later in relation to a tragic death. The author doesn't wait to launch into the killings, and the first happens on the fourth page of the book, pulling me into the story right away. The suspense and action were well done, and it was not until close the end of the book that I began to suspect who the killer was - and I was correct.

 The characters were very likable, and the issue of trusting God made a great sub plot to the story, with both main characters struggling in that area for different reasons and in different ways.  The book is not preachy for those who are bothered by that, but it does carry a great message that God can forgive and change anyone, and that He can be trusted.

 These kind of books are a fast read, with this one coming in at just 219 pages, but those pages are packed with the kind of suspense and non-stop action and drama that I love in a suspense novel. It has made me want to read the other three books in the series which I have not yet read. Great read, highly recommended.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Reunited by Danger will be available September 5, 2017.
