Deadly Intentions by Lisa Harris

Book description: 

There is no such thing as random

Research scientist Caitlyn Lindsey is convinced that someone is taking out her team one by one. First, a friend and research partner was killed in a home invasion. Three months ago, her boss died in a suspicious car accident. Four days ago, another partner supposedly committed suicide. And now Caitlyn herself has miraculously survived a hit-and-run. Afraid for her life with nowhere to turn, she reaches out to one of the victims' husbands, Detective Josh Solomon.

Though initially skeptical about Caitlyn's theory, Josh soon realizes the attack that took his wife's life was anything but random. Now the two of them must discover the truth about who is after Caitlyn's team--and what their end game is--before it's too late.

My review:

   Lisa Harris never disappoints, and this book is proof of that. From all appearances, this is going to be a stand alone novel instead of a series.

  Deadly Intentions is one of those novels that has non-stop action. There really aren't many parts of the book that aren't on the edge of your seat,  page turning moments. The story is built on a conspiracy theory by a research scientist, and quickly turns into a run for their lives by the main characters as they try to uncover the truth behind what is a very complex and diabolical plan to harm many people.

 Harris spun her novel in a way that I wasn't sure who were the good guys, and who were the bad. I suspected two individuals who turned out to be innocent, and was surprised by the identity of one of the bad guys.

 The book is romantic suspense, but that was a fairly minor part of the story. It was there, but it was more in the background than normal for these kind of books, and I liked how it turned out.

 Caitlyn and Josh were very likable characters, and there were a few surprises at what happened to them and  the scrapes they found themselves in as they searched for the truth behind three seemingly unconnected deaths.

  I really enjoyed the book, and was happy with how it played out and ended. Harris hit another home run with this one, and it is another book I can definitely recommend.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own.
