Karen Robards–Shattered

Rating – 3.5 stars

I wanted to read a good mystery novel and then read the synopsis of this book and decided to give a try 🙂 . The synopsis was interesting enough for me to start this book, I wasn’t expecting much but within the second chapter I was hooked. I had to read it to know who the killer was 😀 .

This book is about Lisa (heroine) who is research assistant and Scott (hero) who is a lawyer and they work in the same company. Lisa gets her hands on a cold case file and the lady in the picture resembles her. From then on the accidents starts, her house gets burnt up, somebody hits her from the back and some one is just plain stalking her. She is scared and with the help of Scott, she finds the truth.

I like that there is an equal amount of  romance and mystery. Lisa and Scott skirt around the fact that they like each other and during these incidence they realize that they love each other. I really liked all the characters in these books and usually you began to suspect who the killer is by half way through but I couldn’t guess who it was. Till the last chapter, I just didn’t realize who the killer was 😀 . I couldn’t even guess the motive but through the end of this book even though you suspect the motive, I still couldn’t think of who the killer was.

It was really a good read. I am liking this author and probably will try to get her other titles as well.

 

Synopsis

The past is never over. It just gets dusty.

Lisa Grant was a rising star in a prestigious Boston law firm; that is, until the firm went bankrupt and she lost her job. With an ailing mother to care for, Lisa takes the first position she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan in Lexington, Kentucky. Scott is as disagreeable as he is sexy, and Lisa suspects the only reason she got the job is because of Scott’s fondness for her mother who treated him well when he helped on the Grants’ large horse farm while Lisa was growing up.

While reviewing cold cases in the Fayette County courthouse, a particularly thick manila envelope draws Lisa’s attention. The details of the case are engrossing: an entire family–father, mother, and two children–disappeared more than twenty-eight years ago. Except that’s not all. The mother in the family photo could have been Lisa’s twin. Before Lisa can learn more, a series of catastrophes strike close to home. Lisa confides in Scott, and their relationship develops into something completely different. Together Lisa and Scott unravel a terrifying web of criminal connections that could destroy the very fabric of Lisa’s life–if she lives long enough, that is.
