Broken Justice, Blind Love
He is a suspect. An accused killer. And Trish Kleerey is the law. Patrolman Kleerey stands tall, speaks assertively, and sees right and wrong as clearly as her black and white cruiser. Commit a wrong and face the consequences. But her strict moral code is challenged when her investigation into a series of murders incriminates the man she loves. Her training tells her to arrest him. Her heart screams otherwise.
Bryan DeJewel feels the line between love and the law blur when Trish questions him about the serial killings. The Trish Kleerey he knows is soft, warm, and capable of bringing him to his knees with desire, but that passion isn’t enough to build a lasting relationship. If she loves him, she must trust him.
Her suspicious nature already cost her a lifelong friendship. She couldn’t turn her back on the physical abuse she suspected her friend suffered but, once again, her questions alienated a person she loves. Believing Bryan means turning her back on hard evidence, breaking the rules, and risking her career to prove his innocence.
Meanwhile, the real killer watches and waits, hoping she’ll fall into his deadly trap. Trish’s dilemma: listen to her heart and choose love, or strap on her gun and enforce the law?
While I’m a fan already of Rena Koontz novels, I was once again tense, moved, and satisfied reading her latest release. Broken Justice, Blind Love might be her best to-date, which is saying a lot.
Typical of Koontz’s writing style, action grabbed me from page one and never let up. The balance between suspense and emotional journey kept me reading, hardly taking a breath. Her writing is tight, evocative, and engaging. Her knowledge of police work gives the book refreshing authenticity. She never missed a beat in taking me, the reader, along the intense investigation of a serial killer. Her characterization grabbed my heart, as well, as I felt right there with the heroine and hero facing life and death decisions and rooting for them as they searched for truth and love.
But before any relationship can grow between Officer Trish Kleerey and Bryan DeJewel, Trish must face the fact that investigation of a series of murders is leading to Bryan as a suspect. Her suspicion of him throws Bryan for a loop, as he understands a relationship with Trish would be impossible if she can’t trust him. And Trish knows ignoring the incriminating evidence goes against what she stands for – justice.

I really enjoyed this last book by Rena Koontz! It was a well-paced story and even though there was a bit of predictability, there was still enough suspense to keep you reading until you confirmed your predictions. There were points in the story when I wanted to give each of the characters a bit of a slap upside their heads for being so self-focused but that actually did add to the dimension of the character. What I truly like most about Rena's books is her detail in describing the nature of her character's occupations, especially when there is any form of law enforcement involved. She doesn't scrimp on details and I feel as though I always learn something about the various occupations in addition to reading a usually interesting storyline. I was so glad these two did come together at the end of the story. Looking forward to the next book!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were very well developed, and the romance progressed at a believable pace. Trish, the female cop, was a strong and likable character. Her love interest, Bryan, was someone any woman would be interested in. There was a good mystery about a serial killer preying on women associated with real estate listings, and a side story of a friend being brutalized by a new love interest, rang true. If you're looking for a good crime story with a love affair that is fun to read and very believable, you will enjoy this book.
