CRITICAL THREAT by Lynette Eason, Reviewed by Kim

Critical Threat by Lynette Eason is book 3 in the Extreme Measures series, but each book can easily be read as a stand-a-lone. I really liked the first story in this series, Life Flight. It is exactly what I like in a thriller, romance plus nail biting scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat.

I was hoping that Critical Threat would have that same feel to it. Sadly, for me, it did not. I didn't connect with either of the main characters as they both seemed a little one note. There was very little romance, and a lack of chemistry, which really took me out of the story. I also felt like the plot went in too many different directions and seemed very unrealistic.
While this one did not work for me, I am sure I am in the minority. I do highly recommend the first book in this series, Life Flight, and I'm looking forward to the next story in this series, Countdown, which releases in August.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own. The faith thread was light. 
 BackCover Blurb:

FBI Special Agent Grace Billingsley tracks serial killers, using her skills as a psychiatrist and behavioral analyst to get dangerous people off the street and safely behind bars. But prison psychiatrist Sam Monroe knows that just because a killer is incarcerated doesn't mean they're not a threat. His own father, Peter, is a serial killer--in prison but certainly not out of Sam's life, as much as he wishes he was.

When bodies start showing up with Peter's MO, Sam and Grace are both called in to consult. They've met before--and though Grace thought they'd made a real connection, Sam ghosted her. They'll have to get past the awkwardness and mistrust to solve this case--especially because it's about to get personal.

USA Today bestselling author Lynette Eason doesn't give you time to catch your breath in this breakneck race to stop a serial killer.
