Cat Forrester is a Sergeant with a mission. Ever since her father was killed by a drunk driver, she's wanted to take down criminals who kill people that have a lot of life ahead of them. But while her mother tries to drink away her sorrow, she's barely got her head above water most days.  Enter one of her two best friends, Jay Garrett. He calls to give her awful news - that their old co-hort has been murdered, and he's one of the suspects. Even though they've not seen each other in seven years, he still knows he can count on her. And he also knows she'll want to help bring closure to the death of a woman that had once been so close. Both Jay and Cat have secrets. Secrets that could come between them. Jay would like to have a second chance with the woman to which he compares all other women, and Cat wouldn't mind reconnecting with him and a town that meant so much to her when her life was simpler. In order to do that, they have to work together to clear his name and find their friend's real killer. The memories of their one night together haunt both of them, and clearly their attraction is as strong as ever even with those years behind them. Can they get past their issues to see that they belong together? I have to say, the description of this story really intrigued me. I would've liked to love it, but I just didn't. It's not that it was written poorly - in fact, it was pretty good in that regard. I found it to be slightly too melodramatic for my taste. And for characters of their ages, they seemed to over-react quite a lot. Also, Jay outright lied to Cat, and I still can't figure out why. I understand why he wasn't forthcoming to the local police, but he should've just explained everything up front to his old friend and lover. I also think that Cat would've resisted Jay until the case was solved, or remove herself from the investigation if the situation was realistic, but yeah - I forgive that, because it's fiction. Overall, it was a decent book with some stuff that kinda made me scratch my head.

Finding Justice is Rachel Brimbles debut novel for Harlequin Superromance and it doesn't disappoint. This book could easily have been published under the Intrigue line, but I'm glad it didn't. Cat is the kind of heroine you very rarely find in Harlequins where any level of mystery is involved. She's a top notch inspector and there's not a weak bone in her body when it comes to finding a killer. Now when it comes to her personal life that's another story. I loved Cat and I especially loved how she put the case first, over her blossoming relationship with Jay, a childhood friend that she shared a one night stand with. There was a good mix of personal feelings as well as intrigue to this book and a big plus was how the romance part was there, and at times it sizzled, but it wasn't the focal point of the story, that was left for the mystery of finding their friend Sarah's killer. Rachel also adds a bit more to the story, having both the hero and the heroines mother as addicts, Jay with drugs and Julia with alcohol. Its not something you usually see in Harlequin romance, but it really humanized Jay. It also took him away from the "Alpha Male" category that most heroes from series romance fall into. He was flawed very much so, and that makes me love him all the more. As for the whodunit, I figured it out pretty early on, but I'm pretty good at that. Anyone that likes a good mystery will enjoy this one. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Review copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review
