Lethal Target by Janice Cantore ~ Review

Lucie's Review:
Tess O'Rourke has decided to stay in Rogue's Hollow, but now controversial marijuana sales are up for a vote, and an eighteen year old has been found dead. Tess is determined to get to the bottom of it.

Meanwhile she's having second thoughts about Sheriff Logan, and finds herself drawn to Pastor Oliver Macpherson's stabilizing calm. But she struggles to find faith, still grieving her father who died in the line of duty.

Tess has confidence in the officers that she works with, while their smalltown is dealing with big city crime. Pot farms are popping up all around their small town and they are angling to sell their product inside the city limits. Other drug use also on the rise, and Tess's current case is more complex than it first appears with few clues, distraught parents, and many questions.

On top of everything else a face from the past has come back to harass her. Tess is strong in the face of adversity, and she holds her head high. She won't let politics get in the way of her doing her job. Tess is determined to do her duty no matter what.

I like how Oliver listens to Tess and tries to be her friend. He is still mourning the death of his wife, but he helps Tess unravel something that she's been carrying around with her for a long time.

The second book in a series, it does leave some things unresolved, and it felt a bit slow at times, but picked up as the story progressed. I loved the community of Rogue's Hollow, as well as how this book focused more on Tess with her personal development and growth. I look forward to reading the next book in the series to see how everything comes together.
