Disarming Detective by Elizabeth Heiter

Disarming Detective by Elizabeth Heiter

When FBI profiler Isabella Cortez finds a stranger outside her office, she's in trouble.  Because even though Detective Logan Greer is one of the good guys, their instant attraction is a serious distraction.  Ella's got one mission: to find the criminal who hurt her friend and drove her to become a profiler.  But Logan's appeal isn't just chemistry.  He has a case that bears an eerie resemblance to the crime Ella's been trying to solve for years.  Together, they're racing to stop a killer, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the search becomes.  Falling in love could be deadly...or it could be the only way to survive.

The suspense in this Harlequin Intrigue title was great, the romance was not very believable based on the extremely fast timeline--I just didn't think the two leads had enough time to really fall in love.  

Ella is approached by Logan who feels he has a serial killer on his hands.  Ella looks at the evidence and agrees but is shocked when a burn on the back of the victim's neck looks like the brand left behind by the Fishhook Rapist--someone that Ella has been interested in finding since her childhood friend became one of his victims.  Ella follows Logan to Florida and they quickly find themselves with more questions than answers and very little support.  However, as time goes on and it looks like there might be another victim, they begin to get more support and more answers which all tend to lead to more questions.  When it looks like Logan's sister might become a new target and a blue van starts to follow Ella around the stakes only get higher and the tension becomes unbearable.  I felt that one of the strengths of this book was showing how frustratingly slow evidence collection can be due to red tape and procedures.  There would be ideas for leads and they would have to wait for clearance and forms and warrants.  This is the first in a trilogy and I like the sound of the second stories premise so I will probably check it out as well.
