Book Summary:

She’s captured his heart…and the attention of a murderer.

Injured homicide detective Brodey Hayward needs a distraction, and he finds it as a consultant on a cold case murder. When Brodey’s investigation delays plans to remodel the former crime scene, he uncovers another kind of distraction: spirited Lexi Vanderbilt. Despite her distrust of men, Brodey charms the alluring interior designer into helping him examine the case facts.

Working closely with the ultrasexy detective helps Lexi lower her guard, igniting a passion that even Chicago’s winter can’t cool. As they close in on the killer, Lexi becomes his new target. To save her, Brodey must either betray her trust—or risk losing Lexi forever.

My Review
Brodey Hayward, an injured homicide detective on leaves is bored. Finding himself roped into a case of his sister's as an investigator, Brodey finds himself wrapped up in the case and in the interior designer who is currently redoing the house which was the scene of the crime.

As Brodey and Lexi become embroiled in the case, their attraction comes out. But when the killer sets his side on Lexi, Brodey must save her - even if it means betraying her.

The Detective is suspenseful and gripping. I was hooked almost immediately after beginning the book and by the end, I never wanted to finish. I loved the suspense of the book and the plot. Most importantly, I loved the characters. I felt as if I knew them. Lexi is quirky, lovable, and talented. She really loves what she does and puts her all into her work. Brodey on the other hand is a fantastic detective with charm, and you can't help but to like him. Together him and Lexi are a formidable duo.

The plot is great. They aren't working a recent case, but rather one that happened two years prior. The case has gone cold, there are no leads, and no evidence left to gather. Using what he knows, Brodey has to put everything together in order to solve the case. I truly enjoyed watching all the pieces fall into place and his dedication to the job and to protecting the women in his life whether it was Lexi or his sister.

I would love to see Brodey and Lexi again in a future work of Giordano's if she ever feels the need to write them a new story. I think Brodey offers a lot as a lead character. 

As a fan of Giordano, I have always enjoyed her work, but I have to say this is my favorite book of hers.
