No Safe Place by JoAnn Ross

Chicago homicide detective Kate Delaney fiercely defends victims. Which is why — despite death threats — she's testifying to a federal grand jury about local police corruption. It's also why she's infuriated by the New Orleans police department's blasé attitude toward her estranged sister's death. But pursuing an investigation in a strange city means allying with someone who knows the territory. And the players. Someone with a total disregard for the rules.

As an ex-cop from a police family, New Orleans PI Nick Broussard knows that cops live by their own code. You don't rat out a fellow officer. The last thing he needs is some smart-mouthed, by-the-book outsider unknowingly injecting herself into his undercover search for the truth. Even worse is the way she conjures up visions of tangled sheets....

Nick and Kate's chase pits them against the criminal underworld of the sultry southern city. And as they peel away layers of deadly deception, they discover a dark secret too many are willing to kill to keep.

Ms. Ross is no LJ or Karen Rose. She gives a good sex scene and lots of them, but the story was sorely lacking. I didn't feel like Kate and Nick just HAD to be together. The story just doesn't drag you in...I could care less what happened. Very anti-climactic and wrapped up in big hurry.

I really like Ms. Ross¿s books but this was an exception. I won¿t review the plot as others have done so. The characters weren¿t fleshed out at all and I just didn¿t care about any of them. I didn¿t see any chemistry between the two leads and they got involved very quickly. I didn¿t like the resoluton of the book and the ending was in just a few pages and had me going, ¿Huh?¿

I have read Joann Ross books in the past and really liked them but she out did herself with No Safe Place. Set is post Katrina New Orleans, she really gives an idea to some of the problems still facing the Gulf South without making them too intrusive in the story. The story itself is a real page turner. I didn't want to put it down until I found out what happened. It is a real keeper and one I will read again.

JoAnn Ross writes a suspenseful romantic story in No Safe Place. Chicago Detective Kate Delaney has made a name for herself in her hometown. She had to overcome a rough childhood to become the strong woman she is today. When she receives news of the death of her estranged twin sister, she drops everything and heads to New Orleans. When Kate is stone walled by the NOPD she turns to PI Nick Broussard for help. Nick Broussard is trying to run a PI firm after being kicked off the police force. He agrees to help Kate since he knew her sister. But his other motive is to get her into his bed ASAP. Nick is also still dealing with the suicide of his father who was also on the force. The deeper they dig into her sisters past the higher the danger becomes. Kate and Nick both have deep secrets they want to keep buried but in order to get to the truth they must trust each other. What starts out as a casual fling ignites a passion that will stand the test of time. No Safe Place captures the pulse and texture of New Orleans. You feel like you are right there with Kate and Nick on the streets and in the bayou. Their chemistry is hot and sensual. This story will stay with you long after you have read the last page.

Chicago homicide detective Kate Delaney testifies in the Justice Department's police corruption case, which makes her hated by her peers. However, she has no time for the reaction of others because New Orleans Police Department has informed her that her twin sister, Tara, is dead.---------------- NOPD claims Tara killed herself though some detectives think murder might have occurred none have the time to investigate what could be a suicide in a city still reeling from the hurricanes. Kate also refuses to accept the ruling that her sibling killed herself. She plans to investigate Tara¿s death, but knows the Big Easy is not her turf so she needs local rule breaking muscle. She enlists former NOPD Nick Broussard, who was fired by the police department, to help her uncover the truth about the death of her sibling. However, as the pair team up Kate feels a bit of déjà vu as she alienates the police of New Orleans. She and her partner also upset the local mob trying to regain their grip on a post Katrina city.------------------ The investigation is terrific as readers obtain a taste of the troubles confronting NOPD and the residents of New Orleans in the post Katrina environs where things taken for granted no longer are easily available. The impact of the hurricanes on the city effects the position taken by NOPD and the inquiries made by Kate and Nick. The six weeks romance between the lead pair is extremely well written, but in the context of the star of the novel, New Orleans no longer an easy city to live in, seems intrusive. Still this is a great mystery investigation that the audience will devour in one tense sitting.---------------- Harriet Klausner
