book blurbAll Detective Mason Callahan wanted was a quiet fishing trip with the guys—a chance to get away and unwind before Halloween.

Until he finds the body of his boss, Denny Schefte, near their remote Oregon cabin. Now all he wants is to catch the sadist who slit Denny’s throat and covered his face with a mask. Mason was the last person to see him alive and will stop at nothing to find his friend’s murderer.

When the FBI learns of the mask left at the scene, they realize they have a serial killer on their hands—one who is targeting cops. They assign the case to Special Agent Ava McLane, despite her engagement to Mason. Barely recovered from her own nearly fatal injury and her sister’s attempted suicide, Ava hopes she is ready to chase another killer.

But as she delves into the increasingly disturbing case, the killer may be closer than expected—dangerously close.

my review

5 Stars

After months of recovery from the damage caused by Ava’s sister and the mass shooter; Mason and Ava should be planning their future and setting into their happily ever after. Yet, once again these two find themselves in the middle of murder and mayhem.  And right from opening chapter, I was drawn into the drama of Targeted.

A serial killer is on the lose and nothing connects the victims to one another other than the fact that they’re officers of the law. Mason and Ava are searching for answers, while dealing with crazy crime scenes.  It’s all very mysterious and suspenseful. The author, Kendra Elliot did an incredible job of keeping me guessing who was the killer until the very end of the book.  It was fun to read.

The criminal aspect was balanced out with the on-going romance between Ava and Mason.  They’ve reached this solid point in their relationship – you feel their connection and the power in their friendship.  Their steadiness will make you swoon in the middle of chaos and that is impressive.

With each new book in this series, I grow more attached to this duo and I absolutely loved Targeted. I definitely enjoyed this one and recommend you grab a copy together.
