  • From the Back Cover:

    A killer's deadly game needs new players . . . but someone's about to change the rules
    As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder--especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush.

    As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again. And when Serena's own life seems at stake, she must decide if the secret she has been keeping has put her next on the killer's hit list. Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?
    My Review:
     
    This was a great Christian mystery even though the subject matter was gruesome. This is the second book in the Deadly Reunions series and cannot stand alone. This book references the first book and characters are the same even though the main focus of this book is Serena and Dominic. There is a subplot in both books that will be wrapped up in the third book. I can't wait to see what happens. This book was well written with interesting characters and plot. It held my attention from the first page and was very suspenseful. I love the romance between Serena and Dominic amid the seriousness of the mystery. This author always reminds me of my favorite author Dee Henderson. Recommended. :)
