Review: The Cost of Betrayal by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Lynette Eason


About the book:
FAITH WILL BE TESTED. TRUST SHATTERED.
THREE BESTSELLING ROMANTIC SUSPENSE WRITERS REUNITE
FOR NOVELLAS OF DEADLY BETRAYAL.
 
Dee Henderson - "Betrayed"
After serving six years of a twenty-year sentence for a murder she didn't commit, Janelle Roberts is finally freed. But the truth is still waiting to be discovered, and a murderer is still at large. Janelle needs to be somewhere safe with someone she can trust. She may not survive another act of treachery.

Dani Pettrey - "Deadly Isle"
Tennyson Kent is trapped on the isolated island of her childhood by a storm surge, and she is shocked when the typically idyllic community turns into the hunting grounds of a murderer. Cut off from any help from the mainland, will she and first love Callen Frost be able to identify and stop a killer before they become the next victims?

Lynette Eason - "Code of Ethics"
When Detective Isaac Martinez lands in the ER with a gunshot wound, he pulls through thanks to trauma surgeon Ruthie St. John. But as the witness to a crime and possible corruption, Martinez is at risk from someone intent on silencing him--and those around him--forever. When he barely survives another attack while recovering, both he and Ruthie must flee, trying to outrun deadly killers while locating the evidence they need to end the danger.

My thoughts:

The Cost of Betrayal was a good collection of novellas. It starts off with Betrayed by Dee Henderson. I loved her older novels, but was disappointed with Full Disclosure, so I wasn't sure how I would like this one. It wasn't bad, but it was my least favorite of the collection. The mystery was intriguing, but I didn't like the ending.

The second story was Deadly Isle by Dani Pettrey. This is the novella I was most excited about when I heard of this collection and it was just as amazing as I anticipated. My attention was grabbed from the first chapter and I didn't want to stop reading. A great read from beginning to end.

The third novella was Code of Ethics by Lynette Eason. I was actually very surprised by how much I enjoyed Code of Ethics. Eason's books have been very good in the past, but I found myself growing tired of a theme I had noticed in several books, so I quit reading them. I was happy that this book was different and I now want to go back and read the Blue Justice series.

All in all, The Cost of Betrayal was an enjoyable read. I recommend it if you like romantic suspense.
