My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As with the previous two books in this series the author opens with grisly murder that grabs your attention and then rolls into introducing us to the main characters, who we’ve met in the previous Midnight Sacrifice, and keeps your interest until the shocking conclusion.
The Celtic theme was alive and well in this third book but with a little different twist this time. A history museum is the backdrop with Curator Dr. Louisa Hancock baffled by the disappearance of two of her interns. In her quest to getting answers she reconnects with Connor Sullivan. Louisa and Conner have a bit of a history from the previous book. The author gives enough of a back story if you haven’t read the previous books you wouldn’t be lost but I recommend reading the other books in the series as each one has had one of the Sullivan siblings as one of the major characters.
Conner and Louisa end up in the middle of the investigation when the first girl turns up dead and Conner becomes the main suspect. It was refreshing that most of the angst in the book was from the suspense part and not the romance part. Conner and Louisa both have baggage from their past but they had such chemistry and decided to take things slow that it felt more realistic. There was also plenty of supporting characters, some you really liked and others not so much.
I love trying to figure out who the killer is and this time I didn’t do a very good job. That’s a major plus in my book : ). This story enraptures from beginning to end and I recommend it to romantic suspense lovers.
