I love a good suspense book. When it has plenty of twists and turns in it, this book has it all even better. Romance, suspense, all those twists and turns, and I am in 7th heaven.


Lethal Intent-Review-FBThe Description

Publication Date: January 12, 2021

If they expected silence, they hired the wrong woman.

Caroline Bragg’s life has never been better. She and Brandon Lancaster are taking their relationship to the next level, and she has a new dream job as legal counsel for Praecursoria—a research lab that is making waves with its cutting-edge genetic therapies. The company’s leukemia treatments even promise to save desperately sick kids—kids like eleven-year-old Bethany, a critically ill foster child at Brandon’s foster home.

When Caroline’s enthusiastic boss wants to enroll Bethany in experimental trials prematurely, Caroline objects, putting her at odds with her colleagues. They claim the only goal at Praecursoria is to save lives. But does someone have another agenda?

Brandon faces his own crisis. As laws governing foster homes shift, he’s on the brink of losing the group home he’s worked so hard to build. When Caroline learns he’s a Praecursoria investor, it becomes legally impossible to confide in him. Will the secrets she keeps become a wedge that separates them forever? And can she save Bethany from the very treatments designed to heal her?

This latest romantic legal thriller by bestseller Cara Putman shines a light on the shadowy world of scientific secrets and corporate vendettas—and the ethical dilemmas that plague the place where science and commerce meet.



The Review

I wasn’t sure when I got the book if I would like it, but I should have known better. This book was a crazy and entertaining read that pulls the reader in. It starts slow as most suspense books do, but preservers because it goes by quickly.

This is part of a series, but I was able to follow the story and figure the plot out.

I enjoyed the dialogue and the story between Brandon and Caroline.

Caroline was a tough as nails kind of woman who was going to fight the bad guys and try and do the right thing.

I love a good suspense book. When it has plenty of twists and turns in it, this book has it all even better. Romance, suspense, all those twists and turns, and I am in seventh heaven.

I’ve reviewed before for the now closed Romancing the Book. I love reading whether it’s an ebook or a good old-fashioned book book. The smell of a book is such a nice smell. I work with handicapped adults in my real life and I live in New York State.
