Her Final Confession by Lisa Regan

Her Final Confession by Lisa  Regan

EXCERPT: A shudder ran the length of her body. Again, she closed her eyes and took several deep breaths. Then she opened them and continued. “He said, ‘Hello sweetheart. I’ve missed you.’ You don’t know how many times I ‘ve heard that voice in my head, in my nightmares. It never went away. As long as he was out there, I was afraid he’d come back. He always a said he would. . .”

ABOUT THIS BOOK: Watching her friend dragged away in handcuffs, Josie couldn’t believe for one second that Gretchen had killed that poor boy. Confession or not, someone else was involved. She would find out who…

When the body of a young student is found on the driveway of a local Denton home, a photograph pinned to his collar, Detective Josie Quinn is first on the scene. The house belongs to Gretchen Palmer, a dedicated member of Josie’s team, missing for the last twenty-four hours.

Working around the clock, Josie is stopped in her tracks when Gretchen hands herself in to the police. She knows that there’s no way Gretchen could ever be a killer, so why would she confess to a murder she didn’t commit?

Digging deep into Gretchen’s secretive life, Josie uncovers a link between the boy, the photograph and a devastating case in Gretchen’s past. But just when Josie thinks she has it all figured out, the bodies of a young couple surface on the other side of town. Can Josie get to the truth in time to save her friend from a life in prison or certain death?

MY THOUGHTS: Nail-biting.

Breath-taking.

Heart-pounding.

Damn! This was good!

This is a series that was really good to begin with, and one that just keeps getting better. Her Final Confession is everything I look for in a thriller. I read it in two sittings – only because I had to go to work in the middle – or I would have read it in one.

I love the way the relationships have developed between Josie, Gretchen and Noah. None of the characters are stereotyped, and some of the excesses of the earlier books have been whittled away to produce smoother, more believable storylines. Although there is a little romance, it complements rather than overpowering the main thread. Kudos to Lisa Regan for striking the perfect balance.

Don’t be put off by this being book 4 of a series, it is easily read as a stand-alone. But if you are looking for a great series as a gift for someone, this comes very highly recommended.
