Lora Leigh--Deadly Sins (The Callahan's #2)

Romantic suspense

Witnesses to a shocking crime, three men must face the dangers of the past to unlock the passion in their hearts…

Logan Callahan has fought hard to forget what happened that fateful day, so long ago. But every night he tries to sleep, he relives the nightmare. Every time he closes his eyes, he sees the woman whose life he could not save…

A newcomer in town, Skye O’Brien is a mystery to Logan. Like him, she is a night owl. Like him, she is fighting her own demons. Like him, she hides a secret in her eyes—a fire that consumes him with every glance. Could she be the one to heal him?

When Logan’s ex-lover is brutally murdered, his past implicates him as suspect—and his new neighbor Skye may be the only person he can turn to. Together, they share an attraction that can’t be denied. But as he searches for the real killer, he discovers that Skye is tracking down a murderer too—and she intends to use him to do it.

{3 stars}
This series could be so much more. The base plot line is a good mystery, the Callahan cousins lost their parents in the same crash. And now the cousins have to stay in order to inherit their trust funds or forfeit it all. But whoever killed their parents wants to make sure they get nothing, including love and children. Every lover they have had since returning to Corbin County has been murdered by "the slasher", and now the impatient man behind all this has brought in an assassin to move his plot along. Skye has come to town to avenge her sisters murder, she was one of the slashers victims merely because she was friends with Logan. But the attraction between Logan and Skye is magnetic, and they can't stay away from each other.

This book moves the story along, but I have issues with the details. (And I put it down several times to read other books).The family tree is hard to follow, and there are lazy editorial errors throughout. This series could be so much more in my opinion.  But as much as that irritates me, I have to finish this series. The mystery is such a good puzzle that I need to know how it ends....
