I had a hard time deciding what rating to give this book. I like Scott's work a lot, and this was no exception. The lead characters were well developed and likable. I enjoyed the way the Callahan family supports each other. The style is easy to read, the the plot easy to follow. The plot; ah there's the rub. The reason I settled on only 3 stars is because except for changing the lead characters, this plot is like all the preceding books in this series. One of the family members gets in trouble, and for different reasons, they can't trust the police., so they have to go off-grid. Seriously? Here's hoping the final installment of this series breaks that mold.

I love the Love Inspired Suspense line – quick, fast-paced reads packed with lots of breath-holding suspense & action plus a sweet romance as well. In Primary Suspect, we get all of this plus a great group of supporting characters who have been featured in the previous books of this series. (Don’t worry, though. I haven’t read the other 4 books and I didn’t feel lost at all. I do however want to go back and play catch up because I really liked the Callahans.) The book starts out with a bang (over the head. Poor Mitch) and keeps the tension high until the very end. Just when you think it’s safe to relax a little, don’t. Dead bodies keep piling up, as well as some startling evidence, and the author has crafted a great atmosphere of suspense that holds your attention all the way through the story. On the run. Trying to avoid being caught by the police or by the people who are trying to kill them. Never sure who will show up next, or what danger they will have to dodge. In fact, you may find yourself holding your breath more than once – and not just from the great kisses. Speaking of those kisses, though… I loved the layers to Mitch and Dana’s relationship; yes, they had just reconnected after three years, but the fact that they had such an emotional past connection adds to the chemistry between them now. The emotionally-taut, high-intensity situation in which they currently find themselves fuels the intensity of their feelings for each other too, making their quasi-‘insta-love’ more believable for me than it might in other circumstances. Bottom Line: Primary Suspect by Laura Scott is truly enjoyable from start to finish. The characters, the plot, the action, and the sweet faith thread that weaves through the story – all of it delivers a great story that will keep you glued to the page. An excellent choice for fans of law enforcement heroes, medical drama, and run-for-your-life romantic suspense! (I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy)

This book is action packed with intense drama and edge of your seat action. Mitch is the kind of character that oozes with confidence as he investigates a crime scene that will have him scrambling for his life. The opening pages draw readers in with a tense scene as Mitch has been called back to a crime scene . I could smell the smoke as he walked in the building that once stood so proud and tall. Why would he need to have a meeting here late at night? Oh my was I shaking as Mitch is soon in danger and lands in the ER. The author is right on target with intrigue and action that had me drawn to the story. I'm sure Mitch didn't expect to find himself face to face with the widow of one of his co workers. It must be hard for Mitch to see her standing there as he remembers his buddy Kent who he tried to save in a fire. I liked how the author allowed Dana to thank Mitch for trying to save her husband. How long has Mitch carried the guilt of that fateful night when all efforts to save Kent were not enough? I thought hospitals were safe and quiet places to heal. I was very wrong as bursting into the room comes a flash of danger wielding a knife. Holy smokes batman. Mitch and Dana barely escape and this is where the real action picks up. Someone is definitely trying to kill Mitch and he better be on his toes or he will find himself breathing his last breath. I loved how the author brought Mitch and Dana together , even though at first Dana is not quite cooperative. I wouldn't want to be on the run with someone who has danger written all over them. What did Mitch see in the warehouse earlier that has put him on a hit list? He smells setup and must prove his innocence before he is caught. As Mitch and Dana start to draw close to each other, more danger comes their way. I rooted for this couple throughout the story because their chemistry was hot and subtle. Sometimes I thought Dana wasn't sure if she could trust Mitch, but as bodies start piling up she has no choice. I love reading books that grab my attention right away and this book not only did that, but kept my attention till the very end. The intense and dangerous story is filled with great characters that jump off the pages. It's a race to the finish as Mitch and Dana must prove Mitch's innocence and stay alive. I absolutely loved the ending and thought the author did a great job of keeping readers in suspense till the end. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The review is my own opinion.

This was suspenseful right from the start. I liked that. The romance was good at the start but it felt rushed by the end. I was just getting to know them and then they were in love. I really liked both Mitch and Dana, particularly Dana's back story making her the woman she was currently. I wish that could have been developed more but I realize that is asking a lot for a short book. 2 1/2 stars. Full review at my website. I received this book complimentary as a participant of the Love Inspired Blog Tour. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are my own.

Readers who appreciate an innocent love story mingled with a bit of intrigue are sure to enjoy Laura Scott’s Primary Suspect. ER nurse Dana Petrie just wanted to thank Mitch Callahan for trying to save her husband, but her good intentions quickly go south. In a sudden twist of fate, she and Mitch find themselves on the run, wanted by both the police and unknown assailants shooting at them with narcotics laced tranquilizer darts. Dana’s tranquil demeanor keeps her unwavering in the face of seemingly unending danger, but can she protect her wounded heart from the strong and handsome firefighter Mitch? Will they uncover the mystery of their would-be assassins in time? Readers should prepare for a somewhat unexpected ending. ***The publisher provided a free book.
