Lethal Legacy: A Novel 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 30 reviews.

Irene Hannon is an author that when her books arrive at my house, I don't do anything else until I've started (and usually finished) the book. Her books have character I love in jobs I found fascinating. Lethal Legacy is no exception. In this book, Kelly Warren is determined that her father did not commit suicide. By a twist of bad timing Cole Taylor is the detective who meets with her when she finds new evidence. The more they talk he wonders if she's on to something. Then she has an accident due to a food allergy. From there the action picks up to full speed. This story not only lets us into the hero and heroine's heads. We also get glimpses into a couple of the bad guys. This is a book that will keep you up as you try to read just one more page in the race to find the truth, catch the bad guy, and just maybe fall in love along the way.

The police say her father’s death was suicide. Kelly Warren says it was murder—and she has new evidence to prove it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn't put much credence in her claim, and nothing in his case review suggests foul play. But when Kelly ends up in the ER with a life-threatening medical condition, Cole digs deeper—and discovers a startling secret that links her to a long-ago crime. Is history repeating itself? And does someone want Kelly silenced? Irene Hannon has done it again. Written another fantastic book that keeps you on the edge of each page up until the end. One thing I was thankful for was that the "who-dunn-it" guy was revealed early in the story as it was clearly evident early on who this character was. My first thought was that it was obvious and it was going to be a long book waiting for the other characters to figure it out. But thankfully the author revealed it shortly after. On the romance end of it, it could have come down a few notches and been more centered on the mystery aspect, but it was better than previous books.

I really enjoyed this book and the entire series. I also enjoyed the other books written by this author. The story kept me on the edge of my seat or entertained the entire time. There weren't any slow parts. My only warning is do not start this book at night unless you plan on staying up. There is no good stopping point. The romance that is intertwined throughout the story is based on respect, intellegence, and a common relationship with God. I wasn't made to feel uncomfortable with any inappropriate language or intimacy. I highly recommend this book as a clean romantic suspense.

I really enjoyed this series and this was my favorite. The storyline was interesting right from the start and kept me interested until the end. I enjoy books that tell a good story without all the bad language that some authors feel is necessary.

I’ve picked up quite a few books this summer that haven’t grabbed me. I’ve been able to read a few pages and put them down without a hint of angst. Some of them I’ve finished, most I haven’t. I read Lethal Legacy in one day. I read a lot of romantic suspense and Irene Hannon is one of my favorite authors. Lethal Legacy, with its combination of murder, family drama, a Mafia don, a handsome detective, and a daughter fighting for her father’s name, did not disappoint. The story was compelling enough to keep me turning the pages. Even after I knew who the bad guys were, I had to see how it would all play out. The characters were well developed and realistic. They were people I’d like to get to know and hang out with. They had interesting quirks (I like quirks), flaws I could identify with, and strengths that I admire. The faith element was woven in as seamlessly as I’ve seen in a while. It felt integral to the story without being preachy—and that is a line that is so easy to cross. If you’re looking for a great read to cap off your summer check out Lethal Legacy by Irene Hannon. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my opinion. I was not obligated to provide a positive review.

Kelly Warren lost her father five months ago. Although evidence points to suicide, and the police believe that to be the case, Kelly refuses to accept that. She is steadfast in her belief that her father was murdered, but with no apparent motive, the case has stalled. When she finds a small piece of evidence, there is enough doubt raised in the mind of Detective Cole Taylor to reopen the case. As they get closer to the answer, they also draw closer to one another. Will they be able to find the answer without losing their one chance at love? In this third and last installment of the Guardians of Justice series, Irene Hannon has spun a spellbinder that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. Although this is a series, it is not necessary to read the preceding installments in order to enjoy this book. The characters are believable, and while Kelly's Christian faith is clearly portrayed, it is not emphasized over the rest of the plot. A truly enjoyable read and worthy of 4 stars.

What a compelling read! Irene Hannon knows how people think, and she gets inside the heads of her characters. Early on, the reader can guess the identity of the villain. However, this only adds to the suspense as his twisted thought process is brought to light. The plot moves along at just the right pace. The story contains romance aplenty. Although sexual tension is felt, Kelly and Cole demonstrate admirable constraint. Sentence fragments bother me, but perhaps only me. The book is definitely worth your time, and I recommend it. Although this novel is the third in a series, it can easily be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel. Thank you to Donna Hausler at Baker Publishing Group for my copy. Available August, 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
