Body of Evidence by Irene Hannon: Book Review

 **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

Forensic pathologist Grace Reilly has seen her share of unusual deaths in rural Missouri. But when she begins to notice a curious pattern in autopsies of elderly residents whose demise appears to be natural, she takes her concerns to Sheriff Nate Cox.

Nate is skeptical about the link Grace is seeing between the deaths--and her suspicions of foul play. But her persistence is compelling. Once she finally convinces him her theory is credible and they join forces to investigate, danger follows. Because exposing the truth could destroy several lives--including Grace's.

Queen of inspirational romantic suspense Irene Hannon closes out her bestselling Triple Threat series with this gripping tale of secrets revealed and romance sparked.

Body of Evidence is the third and final book in the Triple Threat series. This romantic suspense series follows the Reilly sisters, with each book focusing on one of the sisters. As such, they read just fine as standalones. That said, this series as a whole is absolutely fantastic and I'd certainly recommend reading them all. 

In this book, it's time for Grace's story. As a forensic pathologist, Grace discovers something that seems a little off in the deaths of some older residents that at the surface seem to be natural causes. With the help of Nate, the new sheriff, they start an investigation and uncover something deeper going on. 

Irene Hannon is one of my top three favorites, and one whose books I always cannot wait to read. Whether it's romance or romantic suspense, she has such a way of drawing the reader into the story. This was no exception. In fact, I would even go so far to say that this series may have been my favorite one yet. The mystery is unique, and kept me guessing. There are enough subtle clues that you can start figuring things out... but enough suspicion thrown elsewhere that it keeps things interesting and still has the ability to take you by surprise. While I had brief suspicions about the person who would ultimately be revealed as the mastermind, I also had stronger suspicions pointing elsewhere. I love a book that keeps me guessing like that. 

Overall, this was a fantastic book!  If you enjoy romantic suspense, this is on not to be missed!
