Overview

Ann Caldwell doesn't know who she is. She doesn't really know what she is, either.

Growing up, she wanted just one thing--her father's approval. But she never got it. When she was little she was too much girl and later she wasn't enough woman. She even became a cop to please him. Now he's gone and she realizes how empty her life has become. She'd like to fall in love but doesn't know the first thing about getting a man. Even worse, the one man she wants is her partner, Juan Diaz--who has never looked at her twice.

As Ann struggles to find her way, she discovers a bigger task--figuring out who has begun killing cops. She and Diaz must solve the case before anyone else dies. Is on the job the only place they're destined to be together?

Barbara Jean and Renee have never had the typical mother daughter relationship; they have the relationship from hell. Revelations picks up where Circumstances ends; Barbara Jean just dropped a bombshell that stopped Renee's wedding to Stuart, the love of her life. Shortly, after this bombshell Barbara Jean has a turn for the worst. Renee is there for her despite the hatred Barbara Jean has always thrown her way. This is just the icing on the cake as family history and true colors are revealed. You'll have to read the book to see if you would be able to endure ten minutes in Renee's shoes before looking for the fastest car leaving town. Revelations is a roller coaster ride that takes you on a journey of love, hate, inner-strength, forgiveness, and a true test of patience.

A lot of 'romance' literature doesn't have much romance in it. This book, which also has an interesting mystery plot, does. The hero and heroine have worked together long enough that they know one another, at least professionally, before their twinges of mutual awareness begin to accelerate. Both have problems and insecurities, but neither one is unreasonable; neither wants to hurt the other. She had 'looked rather hard' to find major faults in her assigned partner, reluctantly concluding that he was really very nice. He recognizes her as a professional equal, which causes him to be a little disconcerted when he realizes that he's developing a kind of double vision in which he also sees her as a woman with whom he wants a relationship. It's a bit unusual to read a book in which many of the important secondary characters are dead. It could have used another proof-reading (who/whom problems, getting 'out' feet wet rather than getting 'our' feet wet, and several others). This is distracting in a minor way. Virginia

Major Crimes Detective Ann Caldwell attending the funeral of a cop who died in an accident reflects on her deceased father, a former cop. Ann wanted her father to be proud of her, but failed; her mom did nothing for her. Thus Ann finds relationships difficult to accept. She works especially hard to gain respect from her peers as she tries to prove to her partner Juan Diaz that she is as good as any man........................... When other cops die in accidents, Ann begins to believe coincidence aside, a serial killer is rampant. With Juan¿s help she begins to investigate. As they work the case, the partners fall in love, but he has kids to consider and she does not believe in relationships as none ever worked for her...................................... This super series can be counted on by police procedural romance readers to provide a strong tale, which in this case starts at a funeral that sets the tone for an exciting story. Ann is an intriguing protagonist as she tussles with herself in her personal life even as she falls in love, a girly girl thing to do that goes against her need to prove she is as good as any male. Juan is a fine counter to his partner as he believes she can be a woman and a good cop without compromising either. The who-done-it is well written, but takes a back seat to the deep look at a cop with demons to battle................................. Harriet Klausner
