First the calm. Then the storm…

Escaping DC during the dog days of summer is one of the smartest moves Washington metro police lieutenant Samantha Holland ever made. Beach walks aren’t quite as romantic with the Secret Service in tow, but Sam and her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano, cherish the chance to recharge and reconnect—especially with a scandal swirling around the administration.

No sooner are they back home than a fatal drive-by shooting sets the city on edge. The teenage victim is barely older than Sam and Nick’s son, Scotty. As more deaths follow, Sam and her team play beat the clock to stop the ruthless killers. With Nick facing his greatest challenge—one that could drastically change all their lives and even end Sam’s career—will the mounting pressure deepen or damage their bond? 



FATAL CHAOS is a really fitting title for this installment of the series because, except for a brief respite at the beginning, the entire story is one of fast moving, thrilling action and drama. The fallout from the events of the previous book continues unabated, with things heating up on Capitol Hill and the President mired in scandal, Sam facing potential legal jeopardy but even worse are the drive-by shootings which have left D.C. paralyzed with terror. 

Sam does what she’s best at: protecting her city, but she also has to deal with the potential changes that could happen in her personal and family life at the same time. Will Nick be ready and willing to step to the task of leading the country, if needed? Will Sam have to leave her job because of the changes that could happen in her life? 

This book is as exciting as the previous ones in the series and Sam and Nick are still in love and as adorable as ever. Sam’s harder edges have mellowed out and her personal circle is growing as her team becomes more like family, but she’s still herself when it comes to the job, kicking ass and taking names. 

I also enjoyed that many of the secondary characters got more page time, keeping us up to date on the happenings in their life and I look forward to more in this series.
