Scarlet Falls, Book 3
I've reviewed the two prior novels in the series. The protagonists are Stella Dane (cop and younger sister of Morgan Dane who has her own Melinda Leigh series) and DEA agent Mac Barrett who makes his first appearance. SECONDS TO LIVE is an excellent serial killer suspense mystery with very strong elements of a romance novel. Narration by Cris Dukehart is adequate.

Great book under $8
Seconds to Live continues the story of the Barrett family, this time letting us into the life of the families youngest son, Mac. Mac thinks of himself as the black sheep of the family, mistakes made in his teen years have left him feeling he is a disappointment to his siblings. He has been avoiding his home town and trying in his own way to make up for his perceived mistakes. Mac returns home to be with his dying father and along with Stella Dane, a homicide detective he has history with, becomes embroiled in the search for a killer.
This was a well written and enjoyable story, but I did find it slightly more predictable than the authors other novels.
The book had very likable characters and the development of the romance between Mac and Stella was appealing but rather rapid in its professions of love., but then again they did have a past history. I really enjoyed the layers of Mac's personality and the complexity of his relationship with his siblings. Overall the story-line was an entertaining read with enough twists and intrigue to keep you hooked.
Cris Dukehart was very good with the delivery of the syory

Third part of a trilogy that I just could not put down till I reach the end of

This has been a fabulous ride through one family's journey of life, love and combatant training. I discovered these novels and audiobooks through my Kindle Unlimited subscription, just these books alone have been worth the subscription fee.
The narrator was pretty good, she found it difficult to do the male voices, so sometimes it was difficult to differentiate between the many men in the narrative, but that didn't take away from the story or my enjoyment.
The novels are all stand alone pieces, but I'm convinced that maximum enjoyment will be derived if they are all read in order: Hour, Minutes, Seconds... enjoy.
