The Last Word: Review

The Last Word:
(Sophie Trace Trilogy)
by Kathy Herman

When Vanessa Jessup returns home from her sophomore year of college, her mother, Sophie Trace Police Chief Brill Jessup, is stunned to see that she's pregnant-by one of her professors. While Brill is glad her middle daughter rejected the father's abortion ultimatum, she's also hurt that Vanessa ignored her upbringing and angry that the professor has disappeared without so much as a nickel of child support.

But that's not all Brill's got on her plate. One of her detectives has been killed, and the attacker has threatened to come for her next. When a second cop is wounded, public criticism mounts as Brill attempts to stay alive long enough to catch the perp. And she's trying to find that deadbeat dad, while Vanessa struggles to make decisions about her future.

The killer seems to be everywhere and nowhere. How can a police chief—and a mother—do her job with her life on the line? In a show of grace under pressure, Brill will manage to have the last word, even if it kills her.

I wish I would have read the first book in this series. It might have helped me relate to the characters a tad bit more. Making a mental note to pick the first book in the series up at the library. With that said this was a well written Christian book. The story had suspense, the characters made you feel for them and the situations they found themselves in. I think had I read the first book in the series before this, I would have enjoyed this book so much more. It was able to stand alone just fine, but if you read them in order I am certain it would add so much more to your reading experience.

I am giving The Last Word


** I would like to thank Audra Jennings of B&B Media for the chance to review this book. I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review.
Until next time...
Happy Reading!
