Book Description

Sept. 1 2010
A ruthless killer hides in plain sight, someone no one believes is capable of murder. Within a week, six women will be murdered, all punished for their dark pasts. Detective Dani Cole is determined to track down this serial killer whose victims include a young woman she pulled out of a life of crime. Her investigation leads her to a photography foundation and the renowned photographer Mitch Sheridan, a man she she fell in love with years ago but has tried to forget. Dani and Mitch are instantly attracted to each other again, though their troubled pasts keep them from getting too close. Together, through the course of the investigation, they unearth a dark chain of deception that leads to a killer who is closer than they think.

Last to Die by Kate Brady
Romantic Suspense - Aug 31st, 2010
4 stars

There's a killer out and about killing prostitutes to punish them for their secrets. Five had already died brutally with a sixth victim planned. Detective Dani Cole, who knew the fourth victim, is in a race against time to find the serial killer and stop the murders. But her investigation bringsher and her ex-high school sweetheart, Mitch Sheridan, together again. And Mitch wants Dani back. He will do everything he can to protect

Dani as the investigation shifts the killer's fury and focus on Dani. I grew up reading thriller romances but eventually got tired of this sub-genre due to the clichés and bad writing that abound. Brady is, thankfully, a capable writer who can keep several threads going on without losing or confusing the readers. For a thriller-romance that doesn't seem any different from the other thriller-romances, Last to Die, is surprisingly packed with depth. For one thing, Dani is a layered protagonist. She has so many issues and baggage that makes her rea, and not just a 2-D, tough-as-nails, run of the mill female protagonist. She's genuinely conflicted and trying hard to keep it all together. I feel so sorry for her and yet at the same time I just want to tell her to relax.

Mitch Sheridan was also well written and fleshed out. Still, at times I feel like Dani is the one who did all the detective work. It is almost as though her character overpowers his sometimes, but that could just be my inner feminist. To me, Brady sets a new standard for tough on the outside, vulnerable in the inside female protagonists.

Plot wise, this novel an engaging read with lots of subplots threading through it. It's hard to say anything without spoiling it, but I really wished that Brady, as the writer, had made the killer suffer more!

If you are a big fan of mystery, this is a good summer read, preferably by the beach with a chilled margarita. Equal part solid romance and thriller, Brady's novel is an entertaining and fast-paced read.

Kate was added to my favorite author's list after I read One Scream Away. Her knack for romance and suspense keeps a reader intrigued from cover to cover. I love Dani and Mitch and I enjoyed helping track down the killer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great suspense, romance and characters - loved every minute of reading this book Sept. 10 2010
By Crystal Fulcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Why I read this: I love romantic suspense and have been wanting to read Ms. Brady's books (I won One Scream Away but haven't read it yet), so when I saw it was available for book tour I signed up.

How is the novel driven: It's romantic suspense, so it's plot/action driven and character driven, just the way I love it.

My thoughts: Right off I really liked the main characters, Dani and Mitch (how can I not like a man named Mitch - it's my husband's name). They have a history, but that history is 18 years in the past, but it was so much more than typical teenage puppy love so when you put them back together there are sparks, but first there are murders. Since it's romantic suspense, there has to be some form of suspense and I would say that Ms. Brady does a marvelous job with the suspense. She unpeels the layers of the suspense like an onion, slowly letting the reader know little bits and pieces about what is really going on. I would figure something out and be right, then figure something else out and be wrong. Lots of great red herrings and great suspense done in a way that does not frustrate, just makes you want to keep reading.

So to some it up - great romance, wonderful characters with some flaws, but who are perfect together and compliment each other well. Add to that a great suspense plot with enough twists and turns that keep you turning pages and you get a brilliant romantic suspense novel. I have Ms. Brady's first book, One Scream Away and it will be quickly making it's way to the top of my tbr pile.

My Rating: 4.5/5.0

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful Nov. 15 2010
By MoranReviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Author Kate Brady has won or been a finalist in many writing contests, including the Golden Heart from the Romance Writers of America, the Maggies, and the Suzannah. When not writing, she is a full-time choral conductor and assistant professor of music education. Her other title, One Scream Away, (a 2010 RITA Finalist for Best New Book and for Best Romantic Suspense) was her debut novel for this "Sheridan" series. She resides with her husband and two children.

When acclaimed photojournalist Mitch Sheridan receives a frightening call from his mentor one night, he hops a plane and travels across the globe, where he's been hiding since a tragic accident took away any will to continue his art. But coming home has a different form of pain in way of memories. Detective Dani Cole is heading the investigation into Russell Sander's murder, along with a string of disappearances and murders tying all three of their pasts. The old attraction between Mitch and Dani heats again as they race to find a killer right under their noses. And this time, Dani is this calculating killer's last target on a list bent on revenge.

This is book two in the Sheridan series, following One Scream Away.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again--Kate Brady knows how to blend romance and suspense into a killer plotline with page-turning urgency. This is an author who knows her police procedure and how to pace a book very well. The setting, near Lancaster, Maryland, was a perfect, well-described backdrop. And the killer was unique not only in whom, but motive as well. The hero and heroine are relatable and layered, and there was such an intensity to this book not only in the heat between them, but in the suspense. Also true to form is the author's ability to stretch an ending instead of a swift, unsatisfying bang. Oh, and there's a great twist you may or may not see coming, but you cannot stop reading anyhow. I love that Neil returns from the first book as Mitch's brother. It was like welcoming an old friend. With old romances renewed, a murderer hiding in plain sight, a blended past so twisted you'll have nightmares, action like no other, and witty dialog--what's not to love? Masterful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding. June 19 2011
By Detra Fitch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Detective Sergeant Dani Cole is called in to help with a body found in a local park. The deceased lady turns out to be Rosie McNamara, a former hooker that Dani had helped to straighten out her life. This makes Dani determined to find Rosie's killer and a chain of events begin. In quick order, Dani finds her home invaded, her furniture destroyed, her dog at the vet, the killer taunting her, and then the chief of police has her pushed off the case (because her late father had been a crooked cop and the chief is just waiting for Dani to follow in her dad's footsteps). To top it all off, Mitch Sheridan has returned and is connected with the investigation.

Mitch Sheridan is a famous photographer. His photography reveals tragedies around the globe. Mitch is half way around the world when he receives a frantic call from Russell Sanders, his close friend, mentor, and the managing director at JMS Foundation for Photography Art. (The Foundation is Mitch's namesake.) Mitch hears a scuffle before the phone call is disconnected. Worried, Mitch returns to Maryland and finds Russell dead. This is how Mitch runs into Dani Cole. Eighteen years ago he and Dani had been in a relationship. But that ended as a teenage Dani watched her father being arrested and saw Mitch there with his camera in hand. Now Dani is all grown up and is tougher than nails.

Dani and Mitch soon realize that the homicides of Rosie and Russell are somehow connected. As the two unofficially investigate, they find themselves not only dealing with multiple homicides, but also with a black-market baby ring. In some unknown way, the Foundation is involved. From the shadows, a killer watches Dani and decides she is getting too close to the truth.

***** FIVE STARS! This story has pulse pounding action and suspense from the beginning until the end. I found myself unable to stop reading and losing sleep, but it was worth it. This author never insults the reader's intelligence, so as soon as the reader is sure of whom the killer must be, the author no longer bothers to hide the information. This gem will test your wits as it pulls you along on one of the fastest rollercoaster rides of the year. Outstanding! *****
