Overview

Tori Hunter always worked solo, but in Samantha Kennedy she found a partner, in more ways than one. Casey O’Connor isn’t thrilled to learn that she has a new partner on the way. It’s been hard enough to transition from working with live victims to dead ones. Now Leslie Turner is going to slow down the process. <br><br>Professional duty trumps personal issues as the detectives focus on their latest case, a killer whose choice of victim is solitary women. The investigation raises a lot of questions around the killer’s means and opportunities. Leslie would be happy if the questions stopped there, but she’s also wondering why she’d rather spend time with these women—specifically Casey—than with her fiancé. <br><br>Casey would also like to stick to business, but as the case intensifies she finds herself also watching Tori and Sam and wondering how they balance their public personas and private passions. Figuring it out is a pointless exercise, she tells herself, because that kind of lightning can’t possibly strike twice. <br><br><i>Partners</i> concludes the series that began with the chart-topping bestseller Hunter’s Way, and continued with the Lambda Literary and Golden Crown finalist In the Name of the Father — with the sizzling intensity that only Gerri Hill can deliver.

Apparently these people have not read this book. This book is by Grace Livingston Hill and has no connection to the mentioned series. A beautiful story about two young people taking on the task of caring for an abandoned baby. This book has no profanity. Could not put it down.

Partners is the third installment in the series of books featuring Police Detective Tori Hunter and her partner Samantha Kennedy. Detective Casey O'Conner has joined Tori's squad and is quickly becoming the best friend that Tori has never had. They have just begun to work on a case involving a serial killer who goes after women when O'Conner is assigned a new partner. Leslie Turner is going to have to get up to speed quickly if they're going to stop the murders. As they pick their way through some strange clues and even stranger people, there seem to be more questions than answers. One of those questions for Leslie is why she's more interested in spending her free time with Casey and Tori than with her fianc&#233;. Leslie is being attracted to Casey and she can't understand why, so she turns to Sam for help since she went through the same situation. Casey feels that there is a hole in her life and she would like to have a relationship like her friends share, but she doesn't know if that is possible and certainly not with Leslie since she's supposed to be straight. Casey and Leslie find themselves being distracted by their confused attraction for each other and that could prove to be fatal because the killer is still lurking out there and he knows who they are. The best part of Partners is the mystery involving the hunt for the serial killer. It's a tightly written story with tension on every page as long as it sticks to the killings. There is a character named John Doe that is very well drawn and who offers a different aspect to the book. The culmination of the hunt is exciting, scary and totally unexpected. Where the book bogs down is in the romance. The write up on the back cover says that this is the last book in the series, which is probably a wise move. How often is the reader supposed to accept the premise that a straight woman walks into a squad room, gets assigned a lesbian partner and suddenly discovers she doesn't love her fianc&#233; but she does love her partner? Once in a squad is possible, but two cases in a row stretches credibility. At times the romance gets in the way of the rest of the story. The more interesting personal development is the friendship between Tori and Casey. Both of them have been severely wounded by people in their pasts and don't find it easy to open up to other people. To see two strong women learn to let down their guards and share their pain is an excellent character study. As usual Gerri Hill provides a book that is quick and easy to read and is enjoyable. It follows the formula of the previous two books, which makes it somewhat predictable, but the mystery of the serial killer compensates for that. Once again Hill has provided readers with a few hours of escapism.

One of the best stories I have read. I have read all three in the series so far, and am sliently begging for more. This first book in the series immiediately hooked me. I couldn't it down. Entertaining, funny, intense, honest, and well paced. Great book, must read, and can't wait to see whhat comes next.

This is the 3rd and final book of the "Tori Hunter" series, and probably the weakest one. Gerri Hill is great, and these characters are too, but the ending on this one is really lacking. It feels like there needs to be about 6 more chapters to tie this one up. That said, any Gerri Hill fan will still find this entertaining.
