Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite Hit 'n Run by Lori Power has its beginnings in a hit and run, one involving a pretty blonde, Lorna, who hits a hearse, and the driver Mitch, towing a hearse. Mitch, who obviously is in a hurry, leaves his license with her and goes away. She reports the incident and during reporting mentions that the other driver in fact is her old friend with a fake license, alerting the police. The hearse turns out to be part of a clandestine police operation against certain business syndicates, in which her employer is one of the kingpins. The more Mitch tugs at any thread of his investigation, the more it seems to take him back to Lorna. She has to save herself from her employer while her old friend, along with the police force, will have to find ways of helping her and keeping the investigation going without any disruptions. Hit 'n Run by Lori Power is a suspenseful drama. This is a gripping story and told with a disciplined moderation, except in the romantic interludes which, the hero being chivalrous, happened quite often. An element of anxiety and suspense is maintained throughout. All the cardinal scenes, of chase as well as escape, are drawn quite realistically, many a time leading one to miss a heartbeat. Congratulations, Lori, you have done a good job.
Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite In Hit 'n Run by Lori Power, Lorna literally runs into an old friend (or rather an old more than a friend) with a rental truck. While they did not recognize each other right away - him being on a mission in a hearse, and her being a bit shaken because she ran into a hearse - things start to become a little complicated after Lorna takes the guy's driver licence to a local police station, stating that she knew the man in the photo, but the name did not fit him. Mitch, her old lover (for one night), is an undercover cop. And, without intending to do so, Lorna blew his cover. They meet again, but soon things start to get a bit out of hand because both sides suspect Lorna of working for the other side (i.e. the cops think she works for a cartel, and the other way around). Hit 'n Run by Lori Power was a pleasant surprise to me. I usually don't enjoy books like this, they just don't grab my attention. But this one was different, and I actually couldn't help but finish it within less than two days. The plot was quite interesting, and the two main characters had quite the chemistry. There wasn't a lot of fluff around the main story, and the plot developed at a nice pace. The sex scenes probably could have been shortened and more left to the imagination, but apart from that, it was a rather enjoyable read.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Hit 'n Run: Under Suspicion, Book One is a romantic thriller written by Lori Power. Lorna Tymchuk, founder and president of her own public relations company, was focusing on how to best manage a problem client while driving the over sized dual truck the auto rental company stuck her with. When a hearse ran through a stop sign, Lorna was unable to avoid hitting it broadside. While her rental truck was barely damaged, the hearse had sustained significant damage. The driver ran out to see if she had been injured, and he indicated that he was short on time. He gave her his driver’s license so she could report the accident and then asked that she mail him back the license when she was finished. Lorna was stunned when she realized that the rather brusque and scruffy driver was actually Mitchell Morgan, last seen by her five years ago at university where she tutored and fell in love with him. That wasn't the name listed on the license he left with her, but she was certain it was he. At the police station, the officer who took down the details of the accident did not seem at all concerned about the name on the license, telling her that the DMV had confirmed the driver’s identity. Lori Power's romantic thriller, Hit 'n Run: Under Suspicion, Book One, is well-written and suspenseful. Lorna is a strong and intriguing character whose sad and abusive childhood has left her feeling tainted and unlovable. Power weaves past and present in this absorbing story which involves a police sting that targets a crime family, with unforeseen repercussions. The story is fast-paced and taut, and the conclusion is by no means predictable. I especially enjoyed the chase scenes set in the British Columbia wilderness and the descriptions of the natural areas where Lorna’s photo shoot is set. I'm looking forward to further books in Powers' Under Suspicion series. Hit 'n Run is a fun and suspenseful action thriller which is highly recommended.
