When a dangerous criminal targets those whom Sugarland detective Chris Ford holds dear, nothing will stop him from hunting down his man.…
Chris is one the best and brightest at the Sugarland PD, but lately a mysterious illness has him struggling to get through the day. When his symptoms land him in the care of brilliant and sexy Dr. Robyn Lassiter, Chris realizes that he is the latest victim in a rash of mysterious poisonings in the area—most of them fatal. Figuring out who’s causing the fatal outbreak has become a very personal—and deadly—race against time.
Despite battling her own personal demons and painful past, Dr. Robyn Lassiter can’t fight her attraction to her new patient. But as she struggles to help Chris track down the sick mind behind the deaths, she’s not only at risk of losing her heart but of falling headlong into a lethal plot that could take her life.…
In His Sights by Jo Davis is the 3rd novel in her Sugarland Blue series. I looked forward to reading this book, as I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. Chris Ford is our hero, and he is a detective on the Sugarland police force. Chris has only been in Sugarland for a few months, having moved there to be near his cousin Shane (also a detective, and one of our heroes in the earlier books). Chris has just about recovered from an injury on the job, but he tries to hide from others that he is feeling seriously under the weather. He pushes himself back to work
Dr. Robyn Lassiter is our heroine, and as she is walking with her young daughter, Maddy, she comes across Chris, who was approached by Maddy as looking sickly. Robyn tries to help, but Chris perks up when he sees her, and soon he will go all out to win over the beautiful doctor and her precious daughter.
While a romance is about to begin, a mystery develops that starts with Robyn at the hospital losing a patient to a heart attack. She becomes suspicious with the recent similar deaths that have been happening. She enlists the aid of the medical examiner to check into the symptoms of the deceased. While this will take time, poor Chris is unknowingly the next victim of a serial killer.
The romance between Chris and Robyn was very sweet and sensual. Chris knew he was falling hard for Robyn, and Maddy. He was not only hot, but so so sweet to both of them….a perfect match. The only issue was Robyn was hesitant to become involved in a relationship, having lost her husband a few years ago, and she did not want to get hurt again. But love will prevail, if Chris will survive the serial killer.
Both Robyn and Chris begin to suspect something might be very wrong in his house, since when he stayed over at Robyn’s ( yes very sexy nights), he would feel so much better.
As the mystery deepens, the danger escalates and the fierce breathtaking ride to the climatic ending made it impossible to put this book down. In His Sights is another wonderful story that was romance suspense at its best. In the middle of this suspenseful intense mystery, the romance was great, as I loved both Chris and Robyn. Jo Davis does it again with a fantastic addition to this fabulous series. If you love romance, mystery, suspense and a wonderful couple, then look no further than In His Sights.
