Out For Justice Front CoverAward winning author, Vicki M. Taylor writes dramatic fiction with strong, unforgettable women characters.

She attacks the hard issues and brings them to the forefront with a deftness that outshines most other authors. Her ability to sink her teeth into these headline issues and pull the reader into the story makes her one of the best authors of this new century.

No issue is too controversial for Vicki. Murder, teenage suicide, domestic violence and more, you'll find her stories not only give you the harsh realities of the character's life but she wraps you up in their private emotional lives as well -- daring you to not care, not feel, not read.


OUT FOR JUSTICE

Rookie Detective Karen Sykes is out to prove she is good at her job, finding justice for the darkness in her past through law enforcement. She gets her first chance to shine with a case that hits a little too close to home. Like her younger sister, a four-year-old boy, has been brutally murdered.  The case pairs her with Mike Connelly, an attractive crime scene technician, and sparks fly between the two of them. Mike resists the attraction and only adds more emotional conflict to the case.

When her partner becomes the latest victim and ends up in the hospital near death, Karen sets out to find the murderer before he hurts anyone else. Only the case gets trickier when the murder suspect ends up dead, leaving new clues to the real killer. Finding comfort in Mike's support, their relationship heats up, but so does the investigation. The killer has a plan. One that involves a Cat and Mouse game of hide and seek inside the hospital, where her partner struggles for his life. Karen discovers it takes more than catching a killer to make the pain of her past go away. It also takes opening her heart and learning to trust in others.

GOOD INTENTIONS

This is a true to life story about a family of seven with parents who have a lot of love to give. The book revolves around a 14 year old girl who is both homeless and pregnant. The story is told through the eyes of the mother, Tracy Reynolds. The young pregnant teen named Megan has no family and no clue as to who her real mother was. She went from one foster home to another. No one wanted to adopt a troubled teen. Then she became pregnant. That is when she met Tracy Reynolds, a nurse at her hospital. Tracy fell in love with her at first sight and secretly wanted to adopt her and her future baby. The story goes on from there like a wild ride on a roller-coaster.
The day to day detailed story will keep your mind waiting for what's to happen next. I completed chapter 26 before I realized it was a book I was reading! The detailed description of what was occurring was like watching a movie in my mind. I think Vicki Taylor is an exceptional writer, and "Good Intentions" is a book anyone can read and enjoy. I learned a lot about what it's like to be a woman and to be pregnant as well! Something I know I will never experience in my lifetime! You will remain riveted to the book and always waiting for that shoe to fall. The shoe I'm talking about is Megan, the unpredictable one. Will she flip out? Will she run away from home? Will she get pregnant again? Will she leave her baby unattended? You just never know what to expect.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading. If you don't enjoy reading, you will once you pick up this book!
Sincerely,
Philip LoPresti

Reviews for OUT FOR JUSTICE

"Can a rookie homicide detective and a hardened crime scene technician fall in love during the investigation of a little boy's murder? You bet they can! "Out For Justice" really delivers on the romance and the suspense. A very satisfying read. Highly recommended." -Leslie Halpern

"...The author did a good job of fooling us on who the killer was. As a police procedure book I though this was very well written." -- Cindy O.

"When you are ready for a great murder mystery, buy this book, pull up your favorite reading chair and get ready. And if you can, allow for enough time to read it in one sitting as you are not going to want to put it down! The details are exquisite and draw you into the story. How is she going to solve this tangled web? Is she going to solve it? That is for you to find out!" - Mary Cole Roberts

BIG RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

To all my fans, family, and friends. I've so appreciated your support and love throughout the years as I've traveled the winding and sometimes lonely path of writer. You've put up with me not returning calls, not cooking or cleaning, and dashing to the computer at a moment's notice no matter the time of day or night with more text for my story.

It's like saying good-bye to an old friend who's passed on. I'll find things to do to fill my time. I've already discovered the fun of container gardening. I have three grandchildren now. They are keeping me rather busy! More traveling is in the works! I have a good circle of girlfriends who I adore. My dog, Jack and my parrot, Bailey are very happy that their "Mommy" gets to spend more time with them!

I've discovered the love of reading again, for the enjoyment of reading. Instead of editing all the time! What fun!

And, best of all, my husband and I get to spend more time together.

Love to you all,

Vicki M. Taylor
