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.
OUT FOR JUSTICE - Now Available!
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!
