Book Review - "A Deadly Business"

Book Description from the publisher:

If the hours don't kill you, the accused just might.

Mia Quinn is a Seattle prosecutor working on high profile cases in the Violent Crimes unit while juggling the impossible demands of single parenthood. Her husband, Scott, was killed in a car crash that homicide detective Charlie Carlson now believes was no accident. Charlie's instincts and professional record make it impossible for Mia to refute the evidence she'd rather not believe.

When the powers that be refuse to reopen the case, it's up to Mia and Charlie to investigate, all the while trying to deny a growing attraction between them. Was her accountant husband really in league with nefarious criminals? And who is the young woman whose photo they find on his computer?

Uncovering the truth may hurt Mia in more ways than one.

My Review:
I am a huge fan of Lis Wiehl and April Henry's writing as I first read the Triple Threat series written by them and the Mia Quinn Mystery series is excellent writing as well!  There were so many unanswered questions in the first book of the series and I love how the story is continued in "A Deadly Business."  Mia is an excellent character and I empathized with her as she is trying to balance a high-stress job with raising her children and coping with the death of her husband.  As Charlie becomes involved with Mia both professionally and personally I loved "watching" their relationship develop and how great they work together.  I highly recommend this book to those whom enjoy reading good suspense and this is one that you will not want to put down once you begin reading!
