Fatal Deception (Fatal #5)
The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. DC police lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she's forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI special agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case o ...more
I love this series and eagerly await the release of the next installment. A series that focuses/concentrates on one romantic couple is not usually my thing, but quite a few friends (including some who have never steered me wrong) here on GR's started posting amazing reviews about the first one Fatal Affair. Their reviews and comments praised both the book and the author all the way so I took the plunge…..Once I started reading it I was hooked and have continued to read and love every ...more
I really enjoyed this story as the investigation is front and center. It was perplexing to unravel, even though early suspicions point in an obvious direction as the details weren't as apparent. Relationships continue to move forward and pr ...more
The devotion between Sam and Nick continues to grow stronger and the romance only gets more creative and steamier. It's downright swoon-worthy. The chemistry and banter that goes on between Sam and Nick is nothing less than genius. MF continues to develop the depth in her main characters, as well as in the secondary ...more
LOVED! LOVED! LOVED! THIS STORY!
Nick & Sam's "story" just gets better and better with each book!
.. and the bantering between Sam and her partner Freddie.. BRILLIANT!!
CANNOT. WAIT. TO. READ. the next book in the series! ...more
Fatal Fans are in for a TREAT!! Fatal Deception sizzles!
For me, Fatal books are one's to savor. Even if I get an ARC, I still wait because once I finish it, that's it for a while, I'm done. So I like to take my time, read slow and really ENJOY the time I get to spend with Sam, Nick and the whole Fatal crew. Yes, it did only take me a day to read this last installment, but every hour was soooooo worth the wait.

Over the past few weeks I've read the entire Fatal series for the first time, all 6 books. Let's just say I fell in love.
Marie Force's writing is astounding. I hardly have any quips about it. The characters she created were wonderful and relatable. Sam Holland and Nick Cappuano are amazing characters along with their large network of family and friends. There's a great character dynamic going on between all of them. It's hard not to get s ...more
I've had mixed feelings about Marie Force's contemporaries (albeit I haven't yet started on her much-beloved McCarthys of Gansett Island series)... but I absolutely love her entire romantic suspense Fatal series. Featuring the same couple in a series of books can be a risky proposition (unless you're Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb and that couple is Eve & Roarke), since--much as it is on television-- it is easy for the plots to become either repetitive or increasingly far-fetched and the charact ...more
Another excellent addition to Marie Force's Fatal series. As usual, the mystery is well written and not to ...more
This one turned up the sexual heat a bit higher than in the past novels not that they were slouches by any means. The crime was riveting, nothing better.
I listened to Felicity Munroe narrate this, Avery's voice could have been better... but then again the master ...more
Although I I think you could read this latest addition in the Fatal series as a stand alone, it will be that much better if you read the other books first.
I can't wait to see what's up ...more
The story line is as always awesome with the death of a very high ranking officials wife and a missing baby the plot is thick and Sam and her homicide team are knee deep in it, of course with the help of an FBI agent she would rather not have to deal with and who Nick thinks is i ...more
From the moment I picked up the first in the Fatal series – Fatal Affair – for free, I’ve been OBSESSED with Force and the Fatal series. I went and purchased books 2 – 5 over the course of a weekend, and am SO glad I found this series. For those of you who have not yet read or started this series, Fatal Affair will be free from all ebook retailers until December 31st. Go out and get your copy now!
Beware that this review may c ...more
But Sam&Nick are wonderful for themselves and so I loved them and I'm glad to see their relati ...more
How sam solves the crimes and finds the big guns behind the deed captures the reader from page one and doesn't let go until the last page. Or maybe not even then!
I love these characters, including Nick, her Senator husband and even Avery Hill, the FBI agent who can't get Sam out of his mind, even though h ...more
Sam and Nick get better and better, I know it sounds impossible, but I just love them.
I love how Gonzo and Freddie are happy, they are just awesome and deserve that and much more.
One of the things I love about this series is that there is always more than a few stories going on, they are all well written and at least to me, none of them are boring.
The last 10% of this book ruined this series for me. I don’t understand why the author felt Sam and Nick needed kink for them to have better and hotter sex. Their chemistry and love life so far has been wonderful and very intense and hot. In light of the sexual activities and preference of Nick’s dead best friend Senator John O’Connor and the sex call ring run by other senators and high officials of the US Government, Nick and Sam’s love life has always felt in lack of a better word, pure and tr...more
Best of the series thus far IMHO – cannot get through them fast enough !!! Once again a murder takes place on Capitol Hill intersecting the lives and jobs of Sam and Nick. And the previous cold c ...more
