Blog Tour: Review of Fatal Invasion by Marie Force

Author: Marie Force
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: November 2018

First the fire, then the heat…
A brutal home invasion. Two small traumatized survivors who may have witnessed the horror. Lieutenant Sam Holland has never worked a case quite like this one, in which her eyewitnesses are five-year-old twins. But when Sam steps up in a big way for them, she risks her heart as much as her career.

While Sam and her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, go to battle in more ways than one for her tiny witnesses, her colleague Sergeant Tommy “Gonzo” Gonzales battles his own demons. Months of unbearable grief and despair come to a head in an unimaginable way that threatens Gonzo’s status with the department and his relationship with his fiancĂ©e, Christina.
With trouble both at the precinct and on the case, Sam struggles to keep her priorities straight at home and at work while trying not to lose her heart to her latest crime victims.

Fatal Invasion is the thirteenth book featuring Sam and Nick.  It's the second book I have read. The first book I read worked fairly well as a stand alone.  However, I know I would have benefited more from reading the entire series before reading this one.  I often felt like I was trying to catch up.  Parts of the book made me feel like I was reading a soap opera.  I kind of felt like there were too many side stories and they took away from the main mystery.  

The mystery was good and that is what kept me engaged.  Also, I do really like the relationship between Sam and Nick.  Their banter and attraction is because is fun to read.  The ending was sweet.  I know that fans of this series will enjoy this installment.
