Double Cross Review


 About the Book

FBI Agent Laurel Evertson's investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to Morton Wilmington, a felon she arrested five years ago on her first undercover assignment. That case has haunted her since, and though she's vowed to forget Wilmington--and what she sacrificed to put him away--he is now her best lead.Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer's next targets, and he'll do anything to protect his family--even force interagency cooperation. But he's quickly drawn to Laurel's empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon.As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington's claims of redemption, or if he's leading them straight into a double cross. (Goodreads)

My Review

I loved the first book in this series and was very excited to read this one. I suppose my expectations were too high as this book wasn't as suspenseful for me as the first. The storyline was interesting because it deals a lot with the elderly which I actually thought was a great addition and twist to the storyline. Laurel's story is good personal and professional and I think most readers would enjoy this track down of the bad guy. I just couldn't get into the suspense as much and the ending didn't shock me as much as I hoped. 
Four stars.
