Description

What’s a retired cop to do when her lover is being targeted? Helen Taylor pulls on her boots again in this captivating lesbian mystery.

Lexi Ryan is being targeted and can’t work out why. She’s escaped the troubled town of Warner with her beautiful partner, former Det. Chief Inspector Helen Taylor, and is looking for a quieter life. Instead she’s faced with an attempted hit-and-run and mailbox tampering.

Helen, meanwhile, is finding it hard coming to terms with civilian status. But once a cop, always a cop, and she uses her old skills to play bodyguard to Lexi and kick over the clues. As the incidents against her lover keep piling up, Helen starts to wonder if it’s one of her old enemies up to tricks, or someone from Lexi’s world.

A sequel to Payback, this exciting thriller will keep you on your toes.

    :

    Charlotte Mills is getting better and better! “Fair Game” is an excellent follow up to the fast-paced Payback, (which had an awesome plot but a few technical issues). This book, however, is as close to a top-notch thriller as I’ve read in a long time. I do not give five star ratings lightly but “Fair Game” thoroughly deserves each and every one. Both Lexi and Helen have matured as characters and are definitely more rounded, although Lexi has maintained some of her signature impulsiveness.

    While not a traditional romance, it is really enjoyable to watch the relationship between the two leads develop and grow as the story progresses. They are an excellent couple and the chemistry between them serves as a counterbalance to the crime/thriller storyline. On that subject, the thriller plot is very well written and manages to be incredibly tense and dramatic, without resorting to over the top unrealistic scenarios. I also love that it’s set in Bristol (with brief trips to Bath, London and Scarborough), again it makes the whole novel feel more realistic and grounded, and therefore the crime feels all the more brutal and cruel.

    To put it simply, this is a riveting, clever and sexy crime thriller that I would highly recommend to anyone! (I would suggest you read Payback first, but it’s not mandatory)

    Lexi and Helen are getting a lot of trouble while their relationship is growing stronger. Being the target, being followed and even attacked they have to get the help of Helens police friend and even use Lexis knowledge in using the internet, not always legal! It´s a very exciting story, but I recommend to read the first book „Payback“ before this one. There are a few references to this story, so you won‘t understand them if you haven‘t read book one first.
