LETHAL TARGET by Janice Cantore, Reviewed by Susan Snodgrass

'Her dad and Oliver both believed an all-powerful God ran the show, Tess couldn't.'
This was my first Janice Cantore novel and it will not be my last. I only wish I had time to go back and read all her previous books. This was a top-notch police drama in novel form. No slack time, crisp, clear and deftly written. Tess O'Rourke is a fine police chief and her character is one full of integrity and honor, but flawed. The pastor in the tale is a great character as well. I enjoyed every minute.

*My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book via Net Galley. All opinions are my own. 

Back Cover Blurb:

Police Chief Tess O’Rourke thought she’d taken care of her small town’s drug problem last year. But now Rogue’s Hollow residents are up in arms over a contentious vote on legalizing the sale of marijuana within city limits. And when an eighteen-year-old is found dead of a possible overdose, Tess wonders if the local pot farms might be involved and begins to fear that a new, deadlier drug supply chain has cropped up. As tempers flare and emotions boil over, Tess faces the possibility of losing the town’s support.

With her relationship to Sergeant Steve Logan on shaky ground, Tess could really use a friend, and she feels drawn to Pastor Oliver Macpherson’s quiet presence. But the anger she holds over her father’s death prevents her from embracing his faith and finding peace.

Battling storms within and without, Tess is shocked when a familiar face from her past shows up in town to stir up more trouble. And his threats against Tess may prove lethal.
