In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she’s ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she’s out of her league–and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he’s the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.
Crackling with romantic tension and laced with intrigue, this suspenseful story from award-winning author Patricia Bradley will keep readers guessing–and looking over their shoulders.
From the first pages of Justice Buried, I was onboard with Kelsey Allen’s plans for her future. She’s smart, brave, and maybe a little too cocky for her own good but her love for her family and her determination to prove herself make up for it.
But when a body is found and she is in danger of being implicated, she needs help. Enter Detective Brad Hollister. Kelsey has a slight bit of a history with Brad Hollister and the way the two meet up again is a bit humorous but Kelsey is thankful he’s in her life before long.
With plenty of suspects, a twenty-eight-year old disappearance, stolen items from a museum, and murders that keep piling up, Patricia Bradley kept me engrossed in this story. Everything ties together well and does not feel forced at all. A terrific read for fans of romantic suspense.
