There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Kade's wife was murdered 8 years ago. Her body was found 6 years ago. Her car was found very recently bringing up all the emotions he felt then. He decides he needs to try once again to find her killer.
Nighthawk Security is the best of the best. Many former military men and women are employed by Nighthawk. There are others who are the best in their fields as well. Kade decides to hire them to see if they can find who killed his wife.
Eleanor, Ellie, a private investigator working for Nighthawk. Very good at her job. She is tasked with trying to find the person who murdered Kade's wife.
Although Kade and Ellie are attracted to each other, they both have issues with commitment. As they begin to explore their mutual attraction, things begin to happen around the ranch and another woman is found murdered. Why now? Is the new murder connected to Kade's wife?
Kat Martin just has a way to weave her stories back and forth, throwing in clues when you least expect them. You think you've gotten the person figured out, then, wham...you're wrong! Another satisfying mystery by Ms. Martin.
Eleanor (Ellie) Bowman, works for Nighthawk Security as a private investigator, and her boss assigns her to go undercover to investigate who killed Kade’s wife. At first, Kade wasn’t sure he wanted this beautiful young woman to handle the case, but he agrees, especially after the boss explains she is perfect for the job.
Ellie goes undercover as a temporary cook at Kade’s Diamond Bar Ranch to investigate the murder. She begins with learning more about the ranch hands, and the men in town who the wife was involved with. While she is helping with the cooking, Ellie will start helping Kade & the ranch hands with other things happening that seem to be sabotage; with first two cattle are found dead, then one of the ranch hands is shot, and a mine on Kade’s land explodes. It becomes obvious that someone is out to destroy Kade. Ellie insists to help Kade on these attacks, and begins to works closely with him to try and find out who is behind the attack and why?
When another woman is found dead in a similar murder to Kade’s wife, Ellie and Kade decide to go to Vail, as both women seemed to spend time there, having affairs. A suspect in the ranch attacks is murdered, leading them to look closely at the wealthy in Vail, who own the mines.
With all that is happening around them, both Kade and Ellie find themselves attracted to each other; the chemistry between them sizzles and in a short time, they act on their lust. Ellie though knows that despite his feelings, Kade still does not trust other women, knowing what his wife did. He finds himself falling into a jealous rage, when any man talks or smiles at Ellie, which is something he never felt before. Will Kade be able to trust Ellie or will he let her walkaway when the case is over?
Kade and Ellie know that they are close to finding the person behind the attacks on him and the ranch; but danger escalates, as Ellie is now in the sight of a madman. To say too much more would be spoilers, and you really need to read this book from the start. I loved Martin’s Maximum Security series, and now I look forward to seeing what Martin has in store for us in this new series. The Last Goodnight was very well written by Kat Martin. If you enjoy mystery, suspense, murder and a great couple, you should read The Last Goodnight.
Ellie is smart and skilled, and she blends in well, which helps in her investigation. Posing as a cook at the ranch, Ellie uses all of her skills and resources to help Kade. I like her resourcefulness and her unwillingness to change. She is a strong woman who knows what she wants in life and love, and she won’t settle for less. I also like that she is an understanding person. Ellie becomes friendly with several people on Kade’s ranch, including Kade, and her innate ability to read people and offer support is fantastic.
The romance between Ellie and Kade is an instant attraction that leads to more. Both have experienced bad relationships in the past and are hesitant to commit to a relationship, which isn’t shocking since they’ve both been cheated on and betrayed. Kade and Ellie have tremendous chemistry, and they make a really good team. I liked watching them grow closer to each other and learn to trust in their feelings.
The intrigue in the story is suspenseful and has a few surprising twists and turns. I had fun trying to figure out what really happened to Kade’s wife, who was tampering with his ranch, and whether the collective incidents were related. When another person turns up dead, the stakes grow even higher. Kade fears for Ellie’s safety and will do anything to protect her, but he doesn’t know who to protect her from. The mystery is interesting and complicated, and as old secrets are revealed, new problems continually arise. It makes for a suspenseful and intense read!
This is a great new series for romantic suspense readers, and I look forward to continuing the series. I would definitely recommend it to people who like hunky cowboy alpha makes, smart and independent women, and sexy romances. Thanks so much to NetGalley, Kensington Books, and Kat Martin for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
