Hot Pursuit (review)


4 out of 5 stars

“Hot Pursuit” by Jo Davis is part of the ‘Sugarland Blue’ series which focuses on Taylor Kayne, a 32-year-old homicide detective who has been a policeman since he was 21 but who has been suffering PTSD from the event that caused him to flee his life in Los Angeles and relocate to Sugarland, Tennessee.  His searing attraction to rocker Cara Evans leads him into a confusing relationship as she sends out conflicting signals but he doesn’t realize that she has her own agenda.  Cara wants to believe the worst of the sexy detective who she has followed to his new town but his concern for the young homeless man she has adopted seems inconsistent with what she has been told.  The past threatens to destroy any future they could have, if a mysterious assailant is successful.

This exciting contemporary romantic suspense story continues the saga of the delicious detectives in the Sugarland Police Department.  There are enjoyable cameos by some of the Station Five firefighters from another popular series by this author and the interconnections between all of the characters gives the reader the feeling of visiting old friends.  This book can stand alone and provides a thrilling story with poignant interludes and will undoubtedly garner new fans to the series.  There are delicious secondary stories progressing throughout the stories and hopefully there will be more developments described in the life of young Blake Roberts who has had his share of obstacles to overcome.  I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the first book in the series, “Sworn to Protect”, but I was easily drawn into the mystique and look forward to reading more about the fascinating people serving in this very busy police department.
