I was going to include a review when I finished the book but it seems I wasn't in a good position to do so. And now it has been somewhat too long.

Overall it was an interesting series. I rather loved the first book in the series. I was half ok with and half annoyed that the second book, In the Name of the Father, in the series moved off the two main characters from Hunter's Way. The second book in the series fell from the 5 stars 'Hunter's Way' achieved to 4 stars less to the switch in character
Gerri Hill is a phenomenal author, her dialogue and characters are second to none. This is the third book in the Hunter series and while lacking some of the originality of the first two novels, is still any excellent read.

My only gripe is that the ending is so abrupt, I found myself desperate for some closure. Off to see if there are any more in this series and hopefully find the end of the cliff hanger.
I'm really torn about this latest book by Gerri Hill.

It's the continuation/conclusion of the series started with Hunter's Way, so it's a return of beloved characters. The story focuses on Casey, the character introduced in the second book of this series, In the Name of the Father, in addition to the case the homicide detectives have to solve in this crime/romance novel.

I liked the case, trying to solve the murder of young women killed by a peeping tom and the connected murder of a homeless man,

Excellent as always. Loved the interaction between Hunter and O'Connor. Loved the new lady in the group. I can't wait to meet the highway series lady and see them catch Patrick. And then read the crossover with these six kick ass women!!!! Very good story, as always with Gerri Hill
Straight up - I did not like, or appreciate, the ending. Considering PARTNERS is touted as the final in the series it is left completely open ended and with a major thread left hanging what a mean thing to do to your readers. This is the third and final book of the Hunter series and Sam and Tori take the backseat as the story focuses on Casey and Leslie. The latest case to arrive in Homicide is a series of murders of single women that appear to be linked to Peeping Tom sightings and a dead stree ...more
The third Hunter book, but Tori and Sam are relegated to secondary characters in this one.

Casey O'Connor (introduced in In the Name of the Father) is now in the Homicide department, where all really hot lesbian detectives seemed destined to end up. She's teamed up with a new detective who transfers in from Assault (formerly a Homicide detective in Fort Worth so it doesn't seem too odd to have to new homicide detectives partnered up). The new transfer, Leslie Tucker, is straight and engaged, but
Hunter's Way, a thoroughly engrossing read, hit all the right notes for me. The quality of writing is above average, as is the mystery / crime plotline, Which is handled well enough twists and turns giving us along the way and, happily, the book is populated by a cast of fairly believable characters who do not hover too close to the usual stereotypes.
The hole Hunters series is good and exciting entertainment.
A worthy conclusion to the Hunter trilogy!
I personally liked part 3 better than part 2.
Through the love story of Casey and Leslie, Gerri Hill created the same quality of the original Hunter's Way book.

I had wished that it had been a little longer.
I wanted to know more about the relationship between Casey and Leslie.

Of all the couples I've read about.
the love story between Sam and Tori was definitely my favorite.
Their chemistry and their road to love will stay with me.
This book is the end of
Not without flaws (I'm tired of the 'straight girl wasn't really straight after all' trope) but it was quite entertaining. Casey and Leslie make for a nice couple and I really liked how Tori grew and mellowed through her relationship with Sam and friendship with Casey.

This was headed for four easy stars until the end. It just stops. I turned the page, expecting another chapter and I get a list of Bella books. What the? I wouldn't have minded so much, except this is the last of the series. (It follows Hunter's Way and In the Name of the Father, neither of which I've read.) Are you kidding me? That's not how you end a series! I really liked the characters, the writing is light and easy (though there was one long info dump near the beginning that was unnecessary ...more
I'm not a fan of cliffhangers and this one leaves several plot points open to visit and hopefully resolve in another book and I'd hoped some, like Leslie and Michael's relationship needed the closure they never really got. Feels like the last chapter was thrown in as an afterthought to set up the cliffie. Still a good, fast-paced read but not as great as the previous books.
If this was a stand-alone book that had not been written after Hunter's Way I would have given this a 4-star rating and given my reasons why. However, this is almost the exact same story as Hunter's Way. I think the popularity of Hunter's Way is what spurred this book, but it short-changes the reader. Yes, pretty good read, but we've read it before. It was called Hunter's Way.

I loved this book and found it every bit as enjoyable as the first. I do however think I had an advantage to other reviewers in that I accidentally read "Devil's Rock" before this. I do hope and wish for more gripping material like this from Geri Hill as this seriously left me wanting more.

I'll say it again, I love this series!! I hope you'll entertain the idea of adding to it. Great stories, great laughs and great romance! Thank you Gerri
Kind of a jilted stop. It's supposed to be the end of the series, but just sort of leaves you hanging with more questions than answers.
I love this book. Have read it 4 times already.

Gerri began writing lesbian romance as a way to amuse herself while snowed in one winter in the mountains of Colorado, and hasn’t looked back. Her first published work came in 2000 with One Summer Night. Many more romances have followed, with the occasional murder mystery in the mix.

Gerri’s love of nature and of being outdoors usually makes its way into her stories as her characters often find the
