Review (with giveaway!) - Critical Condition by Sandra Orchard


Photobucket
Critical Condition by Sandra Orchard
Love Inspired Suspense / 2012
Undercover Cops: Book Three

About the book:

There's a murderer in the hospital, and nurse Tara Peterson is determined to prove it. With mysterious deaths in the cancer ward, anyone could be next. But no one wants to believe her…except undercover agent Zach Davis. The murderer wants Tara's suspicions silenced, permanently. To protect Tara, Zach lets her in on his secret, and unwittingly into his heart. Tara and her three-year-old daughter are like the family he lost years before. Zach will risk everything to keep them safe, no matter the cost.

My thoughts:

Critical Condition is the third book in Sandra Orchard's Undercover Cops series and a great addition. Having read the first two books prior to this one, I can say that I am loving this series and hope it doesn't end with this book. One thing I particularly like (besides the fact that the cops are undercover) is that some of the previous characters appear in this book. I love that!

The suspense in Critical Condition was great and I could not decide who I thought the killer/bad guy was because there were too many people it could have been. The story was really interesting and I liked the main characters a lot - it was easy to get attached to both Zach and Tara.

There was some romance in Critical Condition too, so that made the story all the more great to read. While I loved the first two books in this series, I think this one may be my favorite, but only slightly since they have all been great. I don't think you'd have to read the first two books to enjoy Critical Condition. I recommend this book if you enjoy suspenseful stories with some romance.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
