    The Anna Curtis series was pretty much love at first site for me, and I haven't lost a bit of that feeling throughout the entire series! I find that I love this series more and more with each book! I find myself totally engulfed in the writing of Allison Leotta! I thoroughly enjoy that with each new book comes a totally different set of problems for Anna to figure out! I also like that she provides enough of a back drop that even if it's been awhile since you've read the previous book, you can pick up the newest book without any sense of being lost! I think that Leotta has a unique ability to write mystery books, as she's a former Prosecutor and has the know-how to adequately write and accurate depiction of what would really being happening if the book were real-life! Anna Curtis is such a great character! She is a fierce, independent woman who has no fear of what's to come! She has a no-nonsense attitude and doesn't let anything scare or away nor will she back down from something she believes in! I think her character is part of what I love so much about this series! I find myself living vicariously through Anna Curtis!!! Speak of the Devil left me heartbroken for Anna, so I was really interested to see where A Good Killing would take us! It was a breath of fresh air to remove Anna from DC and her heartbreak, and to see her step outside of her usual Prosecutorial role, and to step into the Defense Attorney role to protect her beloved sister! A Good Killing will lead you through a series of emotions, from heartbreak, to vulnerable characters, to shocking acts that will leave you guessing clear to the end of the book! This book will peak your interest from the very beginning to the last word, so make sure you don't miss out on Allison Leotta's latest and greatest creation! You won't be sorry!!!!

    Excellent Family Suspense/Thriller - Must Read

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for a fair and honest review. An almost perfectly executed thriller, A Good Killing by Allison Leotta is the fourth novel in her Anna Curtis series. Well-developed characters, a tightly written mystery and plenty of emotional angst kept me turning the pages from start to finish. In fact, I got so caught up on this book, I didn’t want to put it down. While this is the fourth book in an established series, this book stands on its own and I was able to enjoy it without having read any of the previous novels. Of course, now I want to read the first three books I missed. Having just broken off her engagement, D.C. federal sex-crime prosecutor Anna Curtis feels as if her life is up in the air. When she receives a call from a childhood friend, Anna discovers that her hometown’s beloved football coach has died, and that somehow her younger sister, Jody, is wanted by the police for questioning. Jumping on the next plane home to Michigan, Anna soon finds herself playing defense attorney for the first time in her life and desperate to prove her sister innocent. Something she begins to question as her investigation digs deeper into her hometown’s secrets. With the help of Cooper Bolden, a childhood friend and Iraq war vet with his own secrets, Anna soon discovers that home isn’t always what we think it is as children. Ms. Leotta does an excellent job developing the primary characters in this story; I easily connected with both Anna and Jody from the start and enjoyed getting to know them more as the story developed. Told in first person by both Anna and Jody, we get to see a fuller picture of their background and what has been taking place in both women’s lives. Born to a hard working mother and alcoholic father, Anna and Jody were both determined to get an education and get out of town, but only Anna managed to leave while Jody stayed behind and went to work at GM in Detroit. While both girls loved their mother, and she eventually raised them as a single mom and did the best she could, Anna and Jody have a close and yet fractured relationship; Jody’s been keeping secrets for a long time and both of them have a hard time trusting men. Something they’ve both learned the hard way. While equally intelligent, Jody’s past (both long term and recent), that’s tied to her personal history with the deceased coach, makes the police look at Jody as their best candidate for a suspect and puts Anna in the position of having to look at the law, and our justice system, from the defenses point of view. Something she’s never really thought about before The secondary characters are also well developed and I especially enjoyed getting to know Cooper Bolden, their childhood friend and hottie yet damaged war veteran. We also got to meet some characters from Anna’s life in D.C., such as Grace her best friend and Jack, the man she was going to marry, who is also technically one of her bosses. We get to meet Jody’s best friend, Kathy, who’s got her own issues with the dead coach, which turn out to be tied to Jody’s case. The mystery itself, as to who murdered the coach and why, is very well done. The story takes plenty of twists and turns, and we discover who the coach really was as a teacher, a husband and man about town. Ms. Leotta’s story also deals with a topic close to my heart in this story, how athletes and their coaches, have somehow been able to get away with a code of behavior that would get anyone else in trouble with the law. As recent events in real life have come to light with professional athletes, Ms. Leotta’s story highlights how this insidious behavior affects both large and small towns. Will Anna be able to prove her sister’s innocence? Will uncovering her hometown’s secrets result in any additional deaths? And will Anna and Cooper’s mutual attraction change the course of Anna’s life? You’ll have to read A Good Killing to find out. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
