Fatal Legislation: A Novel: Karina Cardinal Mystery Book 2 by Ellen Butler was a fast pace, intriguing mystery, that had me hooked from start to finish.
Not my first read by this author or in this series. We are again tossed into an unusual mystery were our MC is once again in the wrong place at the wrong or right time. Man she really know how to get herself in a pickle. Before I get to far into this review, this book, though can be read as a standalone, is part of a continuation series, and I highly suggest reading the first book, especially if you want more backgrounds on our MC and her sexy FBI lover.
Like the last book, the writing is on point, the pace is smooth and cohesive. The fast pacing gives the book a senise of paince, and really puts our MC in the hot seat. The murder plot is also a bit of a test for our power couple and, for me, I like that added element. But I do hope that, moving forward with this series, that Karina’s doesn’t always fall into these situations (Not so much the mysteries, but how she’s finder herself involved in them). Once it fine, twice.. okay.. but a third.. you can only do the same thing so many times. In all, that’s my only criticism with this book, and this series.
Overall this action packed thriller was a fun read, and I loved the complex multi layered plot. The ending was a shocker, but the clues are there, so pay attention. With that said, I’m going to leave you with my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.
