I just wanted to keep on reading page after page until I finished Irene Hannon's latest novel! "Deadly Pursuit" book 2 in the Guardians of Justice series is a page-turner and a great addition to the series. Book 1 focused on Jake Taylor and book 2 focuses on another Taylor sibling, Alison. Alison is a social worker and she puts so much time and effort into keeping children safe and helping parents make changes in their own lives in order to be able to provide a safe home for their children. However, Alison finds out that not everyone appreciates her help. Alison is introduced to a new police-detective, Mitch, who works with the third Taylor sibling, Cole. Pretty soon Alison and Mitch are spending a lot of time together not only on a personal level, but also a professional level as Alison begins to receive threats.
I have really enjoyed Hannon's novels that I have read and I was not disappointed at all with this one! Hannon has spent time researching the social work profession and this is obvious from her work making this book very realistic. Nicole and her son are great minor characters in the story and great examples of a family who was split up and then able to be reunited as a result of Nicole reassessing her priorities and making necessary changes in her life. There is a great mix of suspense, romance and relationships. I am looking forward to reading the third book in this series and spending more time with the Taylor siblings!
