After participating in a previous blog tour for this author, I was excited when she asked me to join this one as well! When it comes to Inspirational Romance I can be a little hesitant on accepting the book for review. Since I read the previous book by the author, I knew that she had the ability to pull it off without coming across as "preachy" that some books in this genre can be like.

When Heather loses her sister in a plane crash that they were both involved in, she can't get her sisters final

I'm looking forward to reading this looks interesting! Thanks, Goodreads!

3/08/11 - I finished this book last night. It was interesting and I enjoyed the relationships between Heather (one of my favorite names - I gave it to my daughter!) and Jeremy and between Jeremy and his friend, Tony. I usually read mysteries, but I like to be surprised by the perpetrator near the end of the story. Unfortunately, I figured out the puzzle well in advance of finishing this book. I still enjoyed readi

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads this week.

I LOVED this book. This is the third book about a team of FBI special agents from author Liz Johnson.

In this story Special Agent Heather Sloan's sister Kit is killed in a helicopter crash that only Heather survives. With Kit's last words a mystery is thrust in to Heather's lap. Several attempts are made on her life as she and Sheriff's Deputy Jeremy Latham investigate what caused her sister's murder and who's out to silence Heather a

I am happy to participate in the Blog Tour for Code of Justice by Liz Johnson. The story takes place over a period of approximately 2-3 week timeframe. A helicopter crash takes the life of Heather Sloan's sister Kit and the pilot. At first it seems to be an accident, but after an incident in the hospital where Heather is recuperating from the crash, does it become something other than an accident. Heather is an FBI agent and her sister was a Deputy DA and when Heather meets Jeremy who is a Sheri ...more

I received a copy for review from Goodreads First Reads.

This book is Liz Johnson's third about a group of FBI agents in Portland, Oregan. In this one we meet Special Agent Heather Sloan as she investigates her sister's death. Heather and Kit were both in a tour helicopter that crashes, leaving Heather as the only survivor. She determines to involve herself in the investigation to find the cause of the crash and solve the mystery of Kit's cryptic final words, "Follow the drugs", but first she mus

I received this book free from goodreads yesterday Mar. 5, 2011.

I enjoyed the suspense, subtle romance and foreshadowing. The story was one to cause anyone who's suffered the loss of someone dear to think about their reaction.

I did find several places where edits were needed. Several places words were either transposed or deleted, but it was not enough to keep me from enjoying the story.

The discussion questions at the end are thought provoking.

I will answer them at a later date. In conclusion
Revenge vs justice, sometimes it's hard not to confuse the two. I could see Heather and Jeremy's points of view on the subject perfectly throughout the story.

I totally enjoyed the way the suspense in this book never let up and the romance between Heather and Jeremy kept building, too. I kept reading and hoping they'd get a break in the case before they end up like the knights in Monty Python and the Holy Grail vs the killer bunny. They just kept getting injured and bruised and battered, my shoul

Okay book , fast read. 2/3 of the way in " Oh no they didn't go there!" But they did and I knew who did it. Kind of ruined the story for me. There was no big " Who did it " ending for me.
Love story part of the book was the same old thing. Don't like each other, then do, then don't. Try no to fall in love with each other etc.... I just keep thinking" Kiss already".
Go ahead and read it. It was an okay story. I'm just not into love stories.

Recommends it for: everyone
"Follow the Drugs," were the last words Kit Sloan said to her sister after a helicopter crash. Heather Sloan an FBI agent is the only survivor of the crash. She is determine to find who was responsible for killing her sister. With the help of Sheriff Jeremy Latham who is assigned to the case. They both go on a wild ride in tracking down the killer.

This story was riveting. It had you wanting to know what was going to happen next to Heather. A great story that you can't put down.
While I enjoy Jeremy and Heather as a couple, the fact that they are both law enforcement officers who agree to break the rules is a bit troubling. Also, Jeremy taking care of Heather is sweet, but the rate it happens is too fast.

Thanks, Goodreads, for sending me another winner!

I'm not a Harlequin-type reader, but this book was more suspense than love story, and it was very good. I enjoyed the characters and the story flowed very well.

Looking forward to more books by this author.

Keep me in suspense, I love it! The best books grab their readers on the first page and pull them all the way through to the very last word. Code of Justice kept me guessing, and that kept me reading. This is Liz Johnson’s third book and she just keeps getting better.
Guessing whose the criminal in the story is interesting. A story of letting go of the pass and forgiving oneself. A good read!
