One Final Target by Janice Cantore

 

Two wounded heroes shattered by tragedy and paralyzed by guilt and must find their footing and work together to catch a killer.

A warrant service in the San Bernardino Mountains goes horribly wrong when an IED blast kills four police officers. Devastated by the loss of her team, the lone survivor, Long Beach sergeant Jodie King, struggles with her guilt and grief, especially as the case remains open with no clear leads or suspects. Weeks after the explosion, Jodie retires from the police department and returns to the mountain bomb site seeking peace and resolution . . . only to find herself in the crosshairs once again.

Sam Gresham just happens to be in the right place at the right time when shots are fired at Jodie. The newest detective for the county sheriff’s department, Sam is assigned to work the IED, his first case back after his own traumatic loss. While Sam sees an opportunity to help Jodie heal from her lingering scars, Jodie hopes fresh eyes will bring new insight to the investigation. Because after this latest shooting, one thing seems clear: Jodie has always been the intended target—and the threat may be much closer to her than anyone wants to admit.

Janice Cantore delivers another pulse-pounding contemporary romantic suspense novel about overcoming grief and learning to trust again.

My Review


 

Another hit from Janice Cantore, and it quickly became a page turner.
Someone wants Jodie dead, but whom? She was the lone survivor when her team was killed, and has been suffering their loss ever since. Enter Detective Sam Gresham, he just happens to be at the right place at the right time, and ends up saving Jodie's life. This is a faith based read, and Jodie's has been waning since the deaths, and now she knows she is a target.
The author did a great job keeping me guessing whom was the guilty, and yes, I guessed wrong.
There is a read disregard for human life, and you wonder how many people are innocently become victims. Both Sam and Jodie are suffering, can they help one another?
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Tyndale, and was not required to give a positive review.
