Happy Monday! Today I get to share another great novel by Jerrie Alexander, Till Justice is Served. This book contains her great blend of suspense, romance and crime right out of the headlines. As always we have the hero who any girl would be glad to have as their savior, but this time the past of both hero and heroine are linked. Jerrie has done it again with another great novel. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. If you like this review be sure to check out the other books I have reviewed for Jerrie Alexander.
FBI agent Rafe Sirilli has made the war against narcotics drugs his personal fight. Home to settle his father’s estate, Rafe has no desire to get involved in local matters. Yet, he finds himself involved in solving two homicides and busting a drug ring as he tries to prove the innocence of a girl he’d long forgotten. Erin has grown into a beautiful woman. The passion she ignites in Rafe is hot enough to incinerate them both. His decision to deliver his own brand of justice will put his commitment to the law to the test.
High school counselor Erin Brady is committed to helping kids. Her world crashes around her when she’s accused of making inappropriate sexual advances and suspected of murder. Erin’s problems have only just begun. She has a secret admirer, one who vows to kill anybody who threatens to harm her or interfere with his plan. Rafe Sirilli agrees to help prove her innocence. Romance blooms, but Erin refuses to hope for permanence. Rafe is available for loan but not to keep.
Will facing old fears help Rafe capture the heart of the woman he loves? The woman who just turned him away?
Rafe is home after being on an undercover assignment for his job as a narcotics officer for the FBI. He is home to take care of his fathers effects. He has no long term plans to stay or get back involved with the community until his father’s old partner asks for his help. When Rafe finds out its the girl that spurned him years ago he is hesitant at first but soon realizes he may be able to repay a debt he feels he owes. Rafe is the last person Erin expects to help her out. Though there has always been an attraction between them their past was never a good one. But that all changes when Erin is accused of things she hasn’t done and two girls are dead thanks to her stalker. As Rafe and Erin get closer to solving who killed the girls and who is stalking her they find themselves getting closer even while fighting their attraction. Can Rafe save and clear Erin or will the bad guys win?
Jerrie Alexander has done it again. I love the character and the story. They are all strong and well written. The crime parts are clearly well researched and the romance is natural. Rafe and Erin are great. Their relationship develops so naturally and lets face it what woman wouldn’t want a Rafe. Though the supporting characters of Luke, Linc and Colton are equally hot and entertaining. It appears this is book one in a new series by Jerrie. If this is correct I can’t wait to read more. I would have to say that the only criticism I may have is I felt the drug part of the story didn’t really wrap up. A few of the aspects became lost with the stalker end of the story. This dual story was new for Jerrie Alexander and I think she can pull it off but with this story the one part of the crime end was left loose. I’m not sure if this will be followed up in subsequent novels but it didn’t appear to be that way. Overall, it was a great novel and yet another win from Jerrie Alexander.
