The Detective by Adrienne Giordano - Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway

Title: The Detective
Author:  Adrienne Giordano
Publisher: Harlequin Intrigue
Release Date:  July 1, 2015
Genre: Romantic Suspense

She’s captured his heart…and the attention of a murderer.

Injured homicide detective Brodey Hayward needs a distraction, and he finds it as a consultant on a cold case murder. When Brodey’s investigation delays plans to remodel the former crime scene, he uncovers another kind of distraction: spirited Lexi Vanderbilt. Despite her distrust of men, Brodey charms the alluring interior designer into helping him examine the case facts.

Working closely with the ultrasexy detective helps Lexi lower her guard, igniting a passion that even Chicago’s winter can’t cool. As they close in on the killer, Lexi becomes his new target. To save her, Brodey must either betray her trust—or risk losing Lexi forever.

Great mix of romance and mystery! The story flowed very well between the cold murder case and the current threat to Lexi, and Brodey's family fit will into the story. Lexi and Brodey were great together, and I loved both the protective and romantic side of him. This is the first book in the author's Intrigue series I've read, but I now have to go back and read Jenna, Brodey's sister, story.

I received an ARC for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
