Cross Her Heart (Bree Taggert #1)
Bree Taggert has dealt with a lot in her life. When she was eight, her father killed her mother and then himself while Bree and her siblings were there. That tragedy is what led her to become a homicide detective, but she’s still dealing with the trauma. Now Bree has gotten a call that her sister has been murdered and her brother-in-law is missing. This case is eerily familiar, but she isn’t entirely sure it’s the same. With the help of her brother-in-law’s friend Matt, Bree is going to find out what happened to her sister, Cross Her Heart.
I really enjoyed Bree’s character as well as her dynamic with Matt. I liked how the author showed how each Taggert turned out differently in response to the tragedy they experienced. There were mystery, procedural drama, and thrills in this start to the Bree Taggert series. The author’s take on those who experience darkness, that all experience it differently and it’s what we do with it that defines us, was insightful. I’ve never read any of her other books, so I’m not sure how it compares. While it is another law enforcement thriller with a strong female lead, it holds its own and is well worth reading. If you enjoy any of those aspects, I definitely recommend you check this new series out. I look forward to seeing what other kinds of trouble Bree can get into.
