Final installment of the Lightning Strikes series The first two books focused on Dani s siblings and this is her book She has never put much faith into her siblings belief in lightning and it s ability to guide them where they need to go and what they need to see Dani has moved to DC to work for the senator and meets Patrick, an investigative reporter, whose mother died a in plane crash similar to the circumstances of her father s death Patrick approaches her for help to meet with the senator and from there they begin to work together as a team to solve the mysterious deaths Intrigue, corrupt politicians and corporate types abound Good story and resolution to the series and the introduction of FBI Agent Wolff, who may appear in future stories. My initial reaction was to give this book 3 stars because I was impatient to finish it But it had everything I normally like good, continuous storyline without a lot of annoying side action, some sex but not the kind where they re in a life or death situation and everything comes to a grinding halt while they spend 6 pages on it , likeable characters, interesting premise which means it was my mood and not the writing that was at fault And unlike some books I m impatient with, I didn t just skip to the end after the first 100 pages just to get it over with, so that was also a good signal that it wasn t the book s fault.I like Freethy s writing and would certainly read other books she s written. Suspense from beginning to endI received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review I thoroughly enjoyed all three books of this Lightning Strikes series by Barbara Freethy, and I look forward to reading of her books As soon as you start reading any of her books you hate to put it down until you finish it because the suspense is so great I liked the way this book ended and was happy to have the mystery of a missing father from a decade earlier finally solved I highly recommend that you read this book and the whole series. Author Barbara FreethyFirst published 2016Length 368 pages, 4487 kindle locationsSetting Contemporary Corpus Christi, Texas, and Washington DC.Sex Hand wavy Infrequent.Hero Investigative journalist.Heroine works for a politician.And we conclude the trilogy.An enjoyable read A good mystery A couple of threads slightly untied view spoiler like the mystery of the Dad I don t think that was satisfactorily concluded hide spoiler This was a well crafted, complicated plot that left no stones unturned Excellent story that brought in characters from the first two books to give the series a defined arc While I rooted for Dani and Patrick, their characters weren t as satisfying as Jake and Katherine in Book 2 It was still a satisfying read and I recommend it.
