Body Heat: Dept. 6 Hired Guns, Book 2 | [Brenda Novak]

Body Heat: Dept. 6 Hired Guns, Book 2

Twelve people have been shot at point-blank range and left to rot in the desert sun. It’s Sophia St. Claire’s job to do something about it. She’s Bordertown, Arizona’s new chief of police - and she’s out of her depth. Help arrives in the form of Department 6 hired gun Roderick Guerrero. As far as Sophia’s concerned, his involvement only makes things worse. Maybe he’s managed to turn his life around. And maybe he’s a good investigator.

Publisher's Summary

Twelve people have been shot at point-blank range and left to rot in the desert sun. It’s Sophia St. Claire’s job to do something about it. She’s Bordertown, Arizona’s new chief of police - and she’s out of her depth. Help arrives in the form of Department 6 hired gun Roderick Guerrero. As far as Sophia’s concerned, his involvement only makes things worse. Maybe he’s managed to turn his life around. And maybe he’s a good investigator. But as the bastard son of a wealthy local rancher, he has a history he can’t get past. A history that includes her. Rod refuses to leave town until the killer is caught. He’s not worried about the danger posed by some vigilante. It’s Sophia who threatens him. Because he’s used to risking his life - but his heart is another story.

    Story
    "More Bodies!"

    Sophia is Bordertown’s police chief. While she is good at what she does, because of her age she doesn’t have the total confidence of the town council in her ability to do her job. It doesn’t help that she is being set up by a former deputy to make her look incompetent because he desires her job. Next problem; former bad boy, bastard son and brother, who has made good, arrives and shows her clues she has missed in the case. Why is he here? Who brought him here? And Why? This story had some great twists and turns like the previous story, there are elements you just don’t see coming till they smack you in the face.
    While this is supposed to be a series this story can stand on its own, there is no involvement of previous characters.
    Cris did a fine job with the narration.

    Story
    "An okay read with a somewhat predictable ending!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I did not like the beginning chapter of the book, but as the book progressed, the beginning chapter made sense.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brenda Novak? Why or why not?

    For sure! I have all of her books and I think she is the best writer ever!


    What three words best describe Cris Dukehart’s voice?

    Her voice works!


    Do you think Body Heat needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, because this is not one of the strongest books in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Brenda Novak's books and will continue to buy them.

    "Good book but series weakness"

    When I look at a series I like to see characters continue and grow with each book. (Like the Cynsters). While this book is as good as the first in the series, the only connection is Department 6 and Arizona.
