Summertime in Nashville gets pretty steamy. No wonder Tess and Scott combust.
Nashville Homicide Detective Tess O’Malley has a lot to prove. She comes from a long line of police officers, including her father and older brothers. First she and her partner are taken off a high profile case and sidelined with a cold case instead. After reviewing the files, she’s certain her cold case is connected to the current one, and she sets out to prove it. Too bad it means locking horns with a handsome PI who could win her heart and derail her career.
Scott Holt is all business when it comes to running his family’s PI firm. When the lovely Detective O’Malley comes to question him about his possible involvement in her cold case, he has everything but business on his mind. Like locking lips with the fiery redhead.
I found Tess to be a determined character. She is an ambitious career cop, and is determined to make Captain by forty. I enjoyed how goal oriented Tess was, but she didn’t think relationship and children fit into her life. At the beginning I wished that she could combined both her job, and some romance into her life. Life is boring with out romance is my belief.
But by far Scott was my favorite character. I loved that he was willing to give up law school to raise his sister, and step siblings when his father and stepmother was killed in an accident. Instead of going to law school he took over his father’s private investigation business. I also loved that he wanted the whole picket fence dream, so much for that just being a women’s dream.
I loved that throughout Love Me If You Can we are able to see things from the serial killers perspective. I found it to be very interesting to read about the serial killer’s planning and reminiscing.
Overall Love Me If You Can is a fast paced read that will keep your attention until the last page. It is the perfect book for both romance and mystery lovers.
