Review & Giveaway! Dangerous Passage by Lisa Harris


Dangerous Passage by Lisa Harris
Southern Crimes: Book 1
Revell / 2013
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:
She's dedicated her life to ending violence. But has she moved too deep into a treacherous world?

When two Jane Does are killed on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, detective and behavioral specialist Avery North discovers they share something in common--a magnolia tattoo on their shoulders. Suspecting a serial killer, Avery joins forces with medical examiner Jackson Bryant to solve the crimes and prevent another murder. As they venture deep into a sinister criminal world, Avery and Jackson are taken to the very edge of their abilities--and their hearts.

Dangerous Passage exposes a fully realized and frightening world where every layer peeled back reveals more challenges ahead. You'll be hooked from the start.

My thoughts:

Dangerous Passage is the first book I've read by Lisa Harris and, while I didn't enjoy it as much as I had anticipated, I did like the book as a whole and really enjoyed the last third.

I liked the characters and it was nice how Avery and Jackson were already dating, so it didn't seem like an insta-romance. There were some surprises in Dangerous Passage, and I was particularly surprised by one thing but, to avoid spoilers, I won't say what it was.

The only real negative I had was that the story seemed a little slow at times. I could easily put the book down and not feel a desire to continue reading.

Still, Dangerous Passage was a good read and I especially enjoyed the last 100 or so pages. I don't think it's a book I'll reread, but I do plan on reading the next book in this series. If you enjoy romantic suspense, you might also like Dangerous Passage.

*I received this book for free for my honest 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.*
