Every family has its secrets…
As the first anniversary of her marriage to Vice President Nick Cappuano approaches, Lieutenant Sam Holland is dreaming of Bora Bora—sun, sand and a desperately needed break from the DC grind. But real life has a way of intervening, and Sam soon finds herself taking on one of the most perplexing cases of her career.
Government worker Josh Hamilton begs Sam to investigate his shocking claim that his parents stole him from another family thirty years ago. More complicated still, his “father” is none other than the FBI director. When a member of Josh’s family is brutally murdered, Sam begins to question how deep this cover-up goes. Is it possible the revered director was part of a baby-napping ring and that others involved are also targets?
With a killer intent on deadly revenge and her team still reeling from a devastating loss, Sam’s plate is full—and when Nick and their son, Scotty, take ill, is her dream of a tropical anniversary celebration in peril too?
Irresistible! I wish I could give more than 5 stars! FATAL IDENTITY is another exciting addition to the series, filled with salacious scandals and more of the dreamy goodness of Nick and Sam. I can promise you that once you start reading this book, you won’t put it down until the very last word. If you haven’t read this series yet, I have one question for you: what are you waiting for?
What do you do if a man walks up to you and accuses one of the most powerful men in the country of kidnapping him thirty years earlier? Well, if you are Sam Holland, you investigate, never mind that you are on suspension from the department. Sam never met a case she turned away from and unbelievable as this one is, Sam is not going to walk away, even though she would be going up against the director of the FBI and the might of his agency at his disposal. What no-one is prepared for is the scandalous secrets, deceit and lies that are revealed, spanning several decades, ultimately ending in murder as the investigation deepens and the potential fallout for one of the nation’s top security agencies.
But Sam doesn’t just get to play super cop. She is a wife and a mom and her love for her family is undeniable. She is settling in with her family and gets to show her softer and nurturing side when her boys fall ill, which I really enjoyed. And the sexy Nick Cappuano. I wouldn’t mind finding him in my Christmas stocking this year. Smart, successful and so very supportive of his wife’s career. You could’t ask for a better husband.
There is a lot to love about this book, but little I can write about it, to avoid spoiling the experience for readers, but I cannot recommend this book and the entire series enough. I really hope that Ms. Force keeps the stories coming for as long as possible.
