Book Review: Fallen by Leslie Tentler


fallen banner 1


“If it wasn’t an armed robbery, it was a hit. An execution.”

Amid a sultry Atlanta summer, someone is targeting police...

The investigation becomes personal for APD Detective Ryan Winter when a colleague and friend is shot dead, the second victim in just weeks. But even as he finds himself being drawn into the tense hunt for a serial cop killer, he is forced to re-examine his own shattering personal tragedy.

An ER physician at Atlanta’s busy Mercy Hospital, Dr. Lydia Costa is no stranger to suffering. Still, the recent police slayings reopen barely healed wounds—and bring her face-to-face with her ex-husband, Ryan Winter. 

As the body count rises and paranoia tightens its grip on the police force, Lydia and Ryan are pulled together by circumstances and fate...causing old passions to reignite despite their painful shared past. But as Ryan moves closer to discovering the killer’s identity, someone is watching, placing both him and  Lydia in mortal danger.


This is a super quick read, and is easily defined as a romantic suspense novel. You can see the plot of the romance in the beginning, but it is the mystery that leads to the suspense and the thrill of 'will they/won't they' get back together! The book reads very realistically, and you know the author really did her research to get all the little nuances right. Ryan and Lydia are great characters and I wouldn't be surprised to see them back in another book! If you're looking for a romantic getaway, check out this book!

Right now the ebook is on sale on Amazon for only $3.99!
