Cross Her Heart- Melinda Leigh #BookReview


For more than twenty-five years, Philadelphia homicide detective Bree Taggert has tucked away the nightmarish childhood memories of her parents’ murder-suicide…Until her younger sister, Erin, is killed in a crime that echoes that tragic night: innocent witnesses and a stormy marriage that ended in gunfire. There’s just one chilling difference. Erin’s husband, Justin, has vanished.

Bree knows how explosive the line between love and hate can be, yet the evidence against her troubled brother-in-law isn’t adding up. Teaming up with Justin’s old friend, former sheriff’s investigator and K-9 handler Matt Flynn, Bree vows to uncover the secrets of her sister’s life and death, as she promised Erin’s children. But as her investigation unfolds, the danger hits close to home. Once again, Bree’s family is caught in a death grip. And this time, it could be fatal for her.

My Thoughts:

The solid storyline, captivating, and a page-turner. The book wasn’t predictable I enjoyed it thoroughly the characters were relatable and the plot was engaging.

Bree even though troubled with the sorrows of her past was given the task of solving her sisters murder. Her brother in law was the main suspect but he was no where to be found. Promising her sister she vows to bring the killer to justice. Bree got help from Matt her brother in laws friend who wanted to prove his innocence.

I loved how the characters worked together even in the face of danger. Bree is a total bad-ass and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐….

Hi, My name is Dee. I recently found myself reading books, something that wasn't a favorite past-time of mine. I read mostly self help books which really changed my outlook on life. Since then I want to share with everybody how reading a page changed my life for the better. I no longer feel depressed and or struggle with anxiety.
