Her Final Confession – Lisa Regan


Detective Josie Quinn is just settling in to a nice evening off with her boyfriend, Lt. Noah Fraley, when both of their phones ring simultaneously. It’s the Chief, asking them to investigate a murder – the covering detective, Gretchen, cannot be reached and the murder has taken place at her home. Upon their arrival at the scene, they discover the body of a young male, with no apparent relation to Gretchen, and no reason to be in the Denton area, let alone in Gretchen’s driveway. Meanwhile, their very capable detective, Gretchen Palmer, remains missing, the GPS tracker on her car, disabled.

As Josie and Noah investigate the murder and Gretchen’s disappearance simultaneously, few clues come to light. Cell phone records give them no real clues as to why a young college aged male from Idaho suddenly traveled to Pennsylvania and wound up dead in Gretchen’s driveway. As they continue to work the case late one evening, they are started by a call from the officer downstairs – Gretchen is in the building and is confessing to the murder. As they attempt to speak with her, she again states that she is responsible, and demands to be arrested – striking Josie in the face in apparent anger.

But Josie knows enough about Gretchen to know that something is wrong. As Gretchen is held by the state police, Josie gets to work, trying to prove her innocence, despite her insistence that she is guilty. A call to an old partner of Gretchen’s sheds some light on her early past and provides Josie and Noah just enough information to head the investigation in the right direction. But re-visiting the past can sometimes be very dangerous – as Josie and Noah attempt to unravel the mystery, they find themselves in the crosshairs of a very old, but just as deadly nemesis…

I LOVED this book!! I love this series!!! This book takes off running, will keep you up well into the night, and, with gradual peeks and insights into Gretchen’s traumatic past, will keep you guessing until the very end! A fabulous read! I cannot wait for more from Lisa Regan!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
