Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Vivacious Valkyrie - Marta:

This is the third book in the Sugarland Blue series that features the detectives working in the Sugarland police department . This is a romantic suspense series that features strong men and women who will do whatever it takes to uphold the law but always find time for their loved ones. Prepare to read about mysterious deaths and an insane revenge whilst this fast paced story pulls you in and doesn't let go until the very last page. Gritty and full of emotion this series just keeps getting better with each installment.

In Sugarland Detective Chris Ford is always seen as a bit of a player with an eye for the ladies but seemingly no intention of ever settling down . When he keeps feeling weak and ill he shrugs it off but when his symptoms put him in the path of the lovely Dr Robyn Lassiter his blood pressure rises and it's not just because he's sick! Forced to admit that his mysterious symptoms might be serious Chris wants more than ever to find a cure but he's determined to be around to get to know Robyn better.

Robyn moved to Sugarland with her daughter after the death of her husband. She has thrown herself into her work and can't help but notice that deaths keep occurring that seem oddly similar. When the sexy Detective Chris Ford starts to show the same symptoms her fear starts to rise as it's looking more and more as if someone is poisoning people. There's a connection somewhere but finding it will test all their inner strength as it looks as if time is running out for Chris!

Oh this was a great story and if you normally enjoy the likes of Karen Rose or Karin Slaughter then this book will be right up your street. A fast paced story full of twists and a mystery to solve. It's a truly diabolical plan that the perpetrator has and innocent people are dying because of it. I think what makes it feel worse is the fact that it has taken so long for anyone to realise what's happening and for many the truth is revealed far too late.

Add to all this the human element with a romance that just feels so right and it's a great read. Chris may seem to many to have it all but meeting Robyn shows him just how much he is missing. He is quite a surprise as he jumps head first into the idea of a relationship with the lovely doctor and indeed it's Robyn who seems cautious. It's understandable that as a mother she wouldn't want to push things too quickly but his pursuit of her is lovely to read. Romantic picnics and flowers plus of course hot sex all work together to work their magic though and it's a beautiful thing as this family comes together.

Jo Davis has managed to write a sexy story filled with danger and a cracking ending that will have readers on the edge of their seat. It's a wild ride but there's a heartwarming scene that will leave you truly emotional as Chris finally gets what he had in his sights!

Ms Davis also writes smoking hot stories under the name J D Tyler too and I thoroughly recommend those if you enjoy a paranormal romance.
