My Thoughts

Fatal Forensic Investigation is written by  Darlene L. Turner. I absolutely love reading books by this author. This book starts off with non stop action and does not let up. Forensic Artist Scarlet Wells is in the quiet coastal town of Coral Bay assisting the police department with sketching the Coastline Strangler. He was seen by a surviving victim. However, once the drawing is completed, the Coastline Strangler returns to finish off the survivor and to leave no stone unturned. After the attack, Scarlet has amnesia and can't remember anything. 

Constable Jace Allen knows that Scarlet is one of the best in the business. He hopes they can work together despite their past rocky relationship. He knows that with her help it helps to increase the possibility of catching the Coastline Strangler. However, the Coastline Strangler has kicked it up several notches and is intent on eliminating of the Coral Bay Police Department. 

Scarlet does not understand why her memories will only come back fragmented. She wants to remember what the Coastline Strangler looks like. Seeing her try and overcome her obstacles was inspirational. Both Jace and Scarlet have to rely on God and renew their faith to help make it through. 

The author has done a phenomenal job with this story. It's non stop action from the opening few pages. My heart was racing the whole book. The characters are well written, the storyline is engaging and unique. 
Thank you to the author for allowing me to read a copy of this book, all thoughts are my own.
