Fatal Exchange (Southern Crimes #2) by Lisa Harris
Desperate times create desperate people. And desperate people are dangerous . . .
Though Emily Hunt comes from a family of cops, the relatively quiet life of a high school teacher suits her just fine. She's saving up to buy a house, slowly moving forward after her brother's death, and settling into a life she loves. So the last person she wants to spend time with is Mason Taylor.
An undercover cop, Mason is enemy number one as far as her family is concerned. His involvement in the death of Emily's brother is still up in the air, and now he expects her to help him with a case. Mason has been working with one of her students, Rafael Cerda, whose brother has been kidnapped by a drug cartel. And with time running out to meet their demands, Rafael is getting desperate.
Emily will have to draw on all of her strength to handle what happens next . . .
Fatal Exchange will draw you into a complex matrix of intertwining lives, unraveling secrets, and unexpected love.

From beginning to end your heart is going to be in your throat, and your mind is going wild. Fatal Exchange will do this to you and more, don’t let your guard down you will not know what is around the next corner.
Yes, this is the second book in this series, and there are references to the first, which contains a lot of information, is it necessary to enjoy this book to have read the first? No, but don’t deny yourself of another excellent book and great read. We are continuing with the Hunt family, after the loss of their beloved Son and Brother, Michael. There is also a split in the family as to who betrayed him, could it be Marcus?
This book has a bit of everything, including cold blooded murder, school shootings and kidnaping, drugs and drug cartel, we are dealing with the big guys. Can you believe, that almost the whole book takes place in one day, rather like the TV show 24. What a packed full day, and your head will be spinning by the end, we go from one horrible event to another, and who will not know until later just who got shot, and who is responsible.
When you reach the end of the book, you are looking for more, and there is, another book is due out in the Spring of 2015, and when you read the preview you are going to be hooked. I can’t wait now for the new book, will need to review the past two to keep updated when it arrives. This is Christian Suspense at its finest.
I received this book through the Revell Book Blogger’s Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
