Payback by Charlotte Mills

More twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel but 100 x hotter

What was the book about?
DC Kate Wolfe is in Warner for six months and she better do well there otherwise her return to London might be longer than expected.

Her new boss is Detective Chief Inspector Helen Taylor who has solved many high-profile murder cases before choosing to relocate to Warner for personal reasons. Between the two of them they have a murder, arson attacks and a missing person to solve. All that and try to come to terms with the grown attraction they have for each other.

Book Strengths
I thought this book was brilliant, I couldn’t put it down. The driving force of both Kate and Helen was fantastic. Ms. Mills gives you enough information about the police procedures to feel that you were there alongside them solving the crimes. The secondary characters give great depth to this novel and the stories that’s swirl around them are both intricate and revealing. I love both Kate and Helen. Each has their own history and pain and together you feel that they can get through anything.

Character Chemistry
Kate and Helen are irrevocably drawn to one another and the sparks that fly when they are together are bright. The verbal sparring and the pranks give the story a contrast to the darkness of the crime around them . The sex scenes are passionate and so hot.
