An explosive new romantic suspense series set in the Dublin criminal underworld.
His last hit turns out to be his first love…
As a final job for his mob boss uncle, Lar Delaney agrees to eliminate one last target. Through the crosshairs of his sniper rifle, he realizes that his target is a former girlfriend—a woman who supposedly died five years previously.
Moira Collins is an intelligence agent whose cover has been shot to smithereens. When she finds herself on the wrong side of an assassin’s rifle, she’s appalled to recognize the only mark she ever let herself fall in love with.
This suspenseful tale was very well written and had me guessing throughout the story. Moira and Lar were very complex as former lovers who worked together to find out who was responsible for killing her family in a church bombing and killing his cousin and uncle in a shoot out. The mysteries were separate but some things became intertwined. This was an exciting thriller filled with twists and turns. I can't wait to see the next book in this series because there were some loose ends that will carry forward. I highly recommend this book to any that enjoy romantic suspense!
An ARC was provided for my honest review.
I received this as an advance copy and I am so very glad I did! I have enjoyed all of Keane's Ballybeg series, and this filled in gaps I didn't even know were there! I was so excited to see Lars have his own story, so we could learn more about him. Moira/Gen is a strong woman who doesn't need a man, but finds Lars to be the peanut butter to her jelly. The plot twists were unexpected and exciting. I could hardly put the book down as I needed to know who did what and why. I have to admit, I had to read the end at one point, so I could relax and stop speed reading. If you are looking for a steamy, complex story then this is your book.
Irish mob mystery romance
A lot of mob mystery with a little romance thrown in. Final Target is not your average romance, it focuses more on the mob mystery angle than the rebidding love of Lar and Moira. The story line pulls you in and you can't put it down till you know who's responsible and what happens next. The ending leaves more questions than answers making it impossible to wait for book 2, June seems very far away.
I love Zara's Irish books that bring me to an unfamiliar culture without completely losing me in the lingo, a very nice balance.
