MT Review: Ready to Die (Selena Alvarez / Regan Pescoli) [Hardcover]

I've finished "Ready to Die" the book in her Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli series by Lisa Jackson.

Product Description

One by one, he’ll stalk them, then he’ll squeeze the trigger, savoring the way each lifeless body crumples to the reddening snow. One down already. And then there were five. When Detective Regan Pescoli drives to Sheriff Dan Grayson’s house to present her resignation, she’s prepared for an argument. She’s not expecting to find Grayson shot and bleeding out on the frozen ground. The assassination attempt leaves Grayson barely clinging to life and the entire police department of Grizzly Falls, Montana, in shock. Every lawman has enemies, but something about this shooting suggests more than a simple grudge. Now Pescoli feels compelled to stay on the force until the case is solved. She and Detective Selena Alvarez — who is torn between a new relationship and her loyalty to Grayson — work to whittle down the list of suspects. But the deeper they go, the more personal and dangerous the case becomes. Then a prominent judge’s body is found and the killer sends a sinister warning to the press: “Who’s Next?” Headstrong and eager for justice, Pescoli has no intention of waiting around to find out. She’ll track the scant clues on her own if she has to, but she has no idea where her search will lead. Two down, four to go and now Regan and Pescoli are at the top of a killer’s list. And when hunter meets prey, both must be willing to kill — and ready to die.

My Review:

It's Christmas season in Grizzly Falls and Detective Regan Pescoli has just been proposed to by her sexy and handsome cowboy boyfriend Nate Santana. He has also gave her a stipulation that he will give her a week to let him know her answer. He wants to make her his wife and not just a lover. Regan knows she loves Nate but after two divorces and two kids later she is hesitant to make another failed commitment.

As she arrives at her bosses Dan Grayson to settle some choices she witnesses his assassination attempt right in front of her. Now he is in the hospital and then a high profile judge's body is found and both Selena and Regan wonder if the two cases are connected.

During the investigation they find a hit list with 6 names that a killer is determined to kill one by one. Also it leads to someone they both know.

This book had a well written storyline with characters you care about and some you may not, tons of actions that keeps you on your toes.

Interesting drama regarding family members of the Grayson clan and I'm curious what people's reaction is going to be when they find out the truth about the new additions to the family dynamics.
