Title: Safe at Hawk's Landing (Badge of Justice #2)
Author: Rita Herron
Stars: 3 1\2 stars
3 1\2 stars
I love Rita Herron All The Pretty Faces from the Graveyfall Series and I have read the first in the Badge of Justice Series so I feel I have a pretty good idea on the authors writing style.
Her Justice series has a great story line but everything feel very rushed which is understandable being it a Harlequin Intrigue series and they have a limited word count. The story moves along at a fast pace and the author is able to pull readers in right off the bat when Charlotte Reacher is hit so hard she loses her sight and has to trust those around her to keep her safe.
Human Trafficking is big this year in books but Rita Herron is able to pull at readers heart strings as well as give romance and suspense readers expect from Harlequin Intrigue series. I wish the story was long so really flush out the characters which is lacking in the first book and the second book.
Thank you to netgelley as well as the publishers Harlequin Intrigue

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Rita Herron fell in love with books at the ripe age of eight when she read her first Trixie Belden mystery. Although she wanted to be a writer then and actually scrawled her first novel at age twelve, she didn’t think real people grew up to be writers, so she became a kindergarten teacher instead. Ten years ago, she traded her classroom storytelling and puppets for a computer and now writes so she doesn’t have to get a real job.
Having sold over fifty books to date, she enjoys spinning spine-tingling romantic suspense tales filled with murder, mayhem, and spicy romance as well as sexy romantic comedies. Rita Herron currently writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue and she’s writing dark, gritty romantic suspense thrillers for Amazon Montlake.
