Cross Her Heart (Bree Taggert Book 1)
by Melinda Leigh

Cross Her Heart, introduces us to Bree Taggert a tough as nails Philadelphia homicide detective with a very troubled past. Bree along with her siblings, a sister and brother as small children survived their father murdering their mother and then committing suicide.

After Bree see’s a missed call from her sister Erin, she knows something is wrong. Her fears continue to grow when Erin doesn’t answer her calls. She decides there is only one thing to do, go home and check on her sister and family. After driving all night fearing the worst, Bree finds that her sister has been murdered, her estranged husband is missing and her sisters two children are with their brother.

While the detective in Bree, wants to focus on finding her sisters killer, she knows needs to help take care of her sisters children. The local police are focusing on her sisters estranged and missing husband Justin, for the murder. As Bree starts to search for Justin and the murderer she is joined by an ex-police offer Matt, who happens to be Justin’s oldest friend. Matt cannot believe that Justin is guilty but agrees they must find him to find out who killed Erin.

As I have said in previous reviews, Melinda is an excellent story teller, creating characters you can immediately root for and villain’s you need to see brought to justice. On my scale of 1 to 5, 1 being don’t bother and 5 a real page turner, I give Cross Her Heart a solid 5. This is a captivating story with great characters and a great read. I am looking forward to reading more from Melinda Leigh.
