LOVED this book! The main character Sterling Aegar and her sister Lacey have had the worst time dealing with the death of their father. He was a police officer and was killed in the line of duty, within a short time Lacey’s husband Nick was killed in the line of duty and Sterling quit the force. Together they open their own private investigation office. I was thinking about all the juicy sub stories and we got a big one. Man cheats on the wife and the girlfriend is dead. This story totally unfol...more

****This book is part of a blog tour, I was given a copy in exchange for my honest review.*****
This was a book of loss, love, hope and self realization.

So she gives up her job as a cop, breaks up with the love of her life and settles for a "safe" existence, guarding her heart from the chance of more unbearable pain.

R.T. Wolfe review of Lynn Crandall’s Dancing with Detective Danger

Take some murder, a fake identity, infidelity, kidnapping and a few crooked cops. Add private investigator Sterling Aegar who is fighting to keep her heart safe from the only man who can break it. Incredibly sexy detective Ben Kirby likes the rush of his job even though it haunts him. They are the perfect match. Getting Sterling to realize this is another story.

I flew through this novel. It’s a fast paced, action packed romantic...more

To start out, Lynn just so happened to write my favorite kind of Romance, a second chance romance. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the angsty built-up feelings, all the heat and physical attraction that has only gotten stronger over the years, and all the same old issues that ALWAYS seem to still get in t...more
Rena Koontz
Finding a dead body is the least of private investigator Sterling Aegar’s problems. It’s the living, breathing, delicious body of Detective Ben Kirby that causes the problems, and the butterflies and the angst.

Readers meet Sterling and Ben in Lynn Crandall’s exciting new novel, “Dancing With Detective Danger,” a romantic suspense set for release Jan. 21 by Crimson Romance. Ms. Crandall strikes a chord with anyone who believes that love never dies, whether pa...more

My Review:
Sterling and Ben were both cops when they were dating, but then Sterling's brother-in-law who was also a cop was killed in the line of duty and Sterling panicked. After growing up watching her mother grieve for Sterling's father, also a cop, Sterling just can't risk her heart that way. She won't be in love with a cop just to watch him die and break her heart. So she left both Ben and the force.

When this book takes place, it's been two years since those events. Sterling runs a successfu...more

This was a good story. I was intrigued that it involved a private investigator who was working an infidelity case that exploded into so much more. Sterling is a former cop and private investigator who works with her sister Lacey. Lacey was widowed two years prior when her husband, Nicholas was killed in the line of duty.

While working the case the sisters discover a body and with that discovery, in walks Ben. Ben had been engaged to Sterling two years ago and she had left him and the force after...more
Sep 13, 2013 Leslie rated it 3 of 5 stars Recommends it for: Fans of second chance romance with a happily ever after.
Although Dancing with Detective Danger is categorized as a romantic suspense, there’s a surprisingly fair amount of sweetness infused into the story. You get the feeling that the author, Lynn Crandall, wanted to let the reader know how much faith and belief she has in the power of love. And this book certainly delivered on that idea, making this book a nice sweet read encased in a murder mystery storyline.

One of the aspects of the book I appreciate are the reasons behind the character’s behavior...more
Rebecca Clayburn Wright
Great suspense and wonderful characters. I love the past loves reunited and the personal struggles both main characters move through.
After two years of being apart, Sterling and Ben meet at the scene of a murder. For Ben, it's as if they had never been apart. Pain and loss from Sterling's past is preventing her from being with the person she loves, to keep herself from getting hurt again. But seeing Ben every day is making it harder to keep her distance from him, physically and emotionally. A moving second chance romance with gripping suspense and an intriguing mystery mixed in. Then there is Sterling's sister Lacey who is a...more
Didn't love Sterling at all, but the hero is kinda' fantastic
