Last witness standing
Four weeks before she's set to testify at a gang murder trial, someone is determined to make sure that Candace Gallagher Andrews never takes the stand. When nowhere is safe for the private investigator or her little girl, Candace turns to the only person she can trust -- longtime friend and former navy SEAL Marco Quidel. For Marco, protecting Candace is not just another duty. As the trial date nears and the killer stalks every closer, Marco knows fear for the first time -- the fear of losing Candace and her daughter. But while Marco begins seeing Candace as more than just a friend, her late husband's memory is never far from her mind. So he must keep Candace alive -- and not get emotionally involved -- long enough to put away a killer.
Pacific Coast Private Eyes: Sisters fighting crime
This has been another great LIS series. Each book reads well as a standalone but they have carry over characters so it's been fun to keep tabs on former heroes and heroines. Marco has been an intriguing secondary character in each book and I was hoping he'd get his own story. And -- yay -- here it is though I'm totally gobsmacked that Candace plays his 'leading lady.' I never thought about Marco with a Gallagher sister so this was a deliciously delightful surprise.
I've said it before and I'll say it again -- there is something so swoonworthy about an alpha hero in hyper-protective-overdrive. May I introduce former navy SEAL, Marco Quidel? Clear off the fainting couch and have the smelling salts handy. Marco has vowed to protect "his girls" (Candace and her daughter) -- be still my heart. This is a match made in heaven if either of them would see reason (which they don't until the very end!) But I can't really blame them -- not with the uber bad guys relentlessly attacking them at every turn.
Tense suspense, impossible romance and great character dynamics bring this story to life and provide a resounding conclusion to the Pacific Coast Private Eyes serie.
