The second book in the Forces of Nature series by Sharon Sala. This is a continuing story from book one. Book one introduced the three FBI agents working on the Stormchaser case. The villain managed to escape and it was hoped that he didn't survive but he did. Wade Luckett's ex-wife, also a FBI agent, Jo, is assigned to help with the case. Wade and Jo are forced to face each other and realize they still had feelings for each other.

Another story where the romance was a bit too easy and convenien

2 stars. Not that good. And the ending did not feel good.

The Series:
This is book 2 in the Forces of Nature series. The same bad guy Hershel is in all three books. He is after a different woman in each book. The three women are the love interests of the three FBI agents trying to catch Hershel. The bad guy finally gets caught in book 3, so there is a cliffhanger in the first two books. Each book has a happy ending for the couple. The first book was good, but I was disappointed with books 2 and 3

I enjoyed this romantic suspense with plenty of action that moved right along. I liked the gradual rebuilding of the relationship between the main characters. I also liked how the team worked together. Switching back and forth with the bad guys thoughts was interesting. FBI agent Wade's ex-wife Jo is assigned to work on a case with him.

More information HERE .

This book has no conclusion. It's a book about a serial killer who isn't caught - and wasn't caught in the previous book, either. Genre fiction has some "rules" authors should follow in order to create a decent book. This author violated them. One star.

3.5 stars. I am enjoying this series. This book had some errors in continuity and editing, though, compared to the first book. I expect Harlequin editors to do a better job.

My rating: 4.5 of 5 ⭐

It wasn't a complete surprise to FBI agent, Wade Luckett, when after a few years of silence the activities of the infamous "Stormchaser" started up again. When the butchered bodies were found after this last devastating tornado, Wade and the two other members of his investigative team were called in to once again head up the investigation to bring down this elusive serial killer. The unexpected addition of a fourth member to their team

Another great book by Sharon Sala, this author has a way with words she weaves descriptions like a spider weaves a web; with true perfection. This is book two in the series "Forces of Nature". Book one in the series is called "Going Once". A great series with a thrilling aspect in each one.

FBI investigators are trying to figure out who the serial killer "StormChaser" is. A conniving killer who kills survivors from natural disasters. Agent Wade was onc4e married to Agent Jo and they are thrown to
I became a fan of Ms. Sala's writing after reading the 1st book in her Forces of Nature trilogy, Going Once, and I was equally impressed with this 2nd addition, Going Twice. Wade Luckett and his ex-wife Jo Luckett, both FBI agents, are assigned to the same case and the serial killer they are tracking, targets Jo. The backstory given for the reason behind the breakup of their marriage, adds a poignant aspect to this action packed romantic suspense story. I heartily recommend books 1 and 2 of this ...more

Sharon Sala is one of my favorite authors. This series featuring FBI agents, Wade and Jo, is very violent and intense. If you like thrillers this is the perfect read for you. The characters are very real and the killer is very believable. This is the second in the series and by the ending it's obvious there is a third on the way.
This is the 2nd book in the Forces of Nature series. The series is a romance but I think even more a suspense series. The story starts with Nola a single lady stranded in a tree due to flood waters. While on her roof she sees a man pull up to her neighbors down the street to help them but then actually kills them. The story starts there and then continues for three books while they try to figure out who the killer is. During the three books there are three different romances that bloom amounts t ...more

The serial killer was still alive and he had his next target

Laura was one happy bride, her FBI fiancé Connor was all she had dreamed of.
She had no idea that the team who been chasing the Stormchaser thought him dead, and that he wanted to take out some one the team loved.
I am eagerly anticipating the last book.

This is the 2nd book of the series, although it can be read alone. I enjoyed reading this book. It flowed together well and I finished quickly. only downside was that nothing was really settled. But I suppose that's the reason for sequels. Lol. I loved the book and I would recommend this book to others.

I guess I had hope that this would finish the story, but as I kept going I realized that it was going into book 3. I liked this book just fine, but felt that the bad guy should have been taken down at the end of this book. He was not. That set up the next book. I felt that three books on this guy was one too many. I'll probably read the third too, because I just need to know the end...

Going Twice is the middle book of three. I did not read Going Once but I would like too now. It can stand alone but you will want to read the next book too. The story is good. Lots of drama, action, and even romance. A few sex scenes that I skipped over.
Main plot is a serial killer is on the loose called Stromchaser. He follows natural disasters targeting survivors and killing them. He taunts the 3 FBI Agents.
In Going Twice a fourth agent is assigned to the team. Is Jo Luckett. She is Wad

Sharon Sala is without a doubt, one of my favorite authors of all time. I thought this second book of the Forces of Nature series, would be predictable. I couldn't have been more wrong! Just when I thought I had things figured out, another twist would come along.

Three FBI agents have been tracking a demented serial killer called the Stormchaser for a couple of years now. Just when they think they have him cornered, he manages to slip through their fingers and disappear, leaving them frustrated a

I am really enjoying this series that focuses on a serial killer who preys upon storm victims. The three male FBI agents who are working the case are all very likeable, appealing characters. In Going Twice, we see another member added to the FBI team. Agent Wade Luckett's ex wife, Jo, is sent to become part of the investigation in this book. The two were torn apart by tragedy, and now that they are working together, they have a second chance to face one another and figure out what went wrong. Th ...more

I loved the first book in this series and was very privileged and excited to read a pre-release copy of this second book.
Man this bad guy is like a cat with 9 lives he has a lot of luck, the good guys really need to kill or catch him already. I found this second book didn’t have as much action as the first; it was more of a drama. This story revolved around the reconciliation of the main characters Wade and Jo and the background story was them trying to catch the serial killer. There is a major

Another fantastic book in the Forces of Nature series. The author is able to put you into the character's lives right from page one. The heroine Jo is an FBI investigator that is assigned to the task force searching for a serial killer dubbed the Stormchaser. One little hitch, Jo's ex-husband is on the team as well. How can Jo face Wade when she is still sure that he blames her for their marriage ending as well as the death of their baby. However despite the awkwardness that exists, Jo works wit ...more

I really like Sala, and I kinda liked this book. It is part of a duo. It begins in medias res, and leaves me out in the wings or buried under the stage. The characters are introduced as though we should already know them. It alludes to other books she's written including using old characters, though it is not presented as being part of that series.

So, I guess that's my beef. I started out a little lost and never really caught up.

Warning: ending discussed, kinda :

No one does Suspense Romance better than Sharon Sala. This is the second in her Forces of Nature series, but it stands alone just fine. It was so tightly plotted that I found myn self reading way too late into the night. I was fascinated by the serial killer premise, and the thrills just kept coming. The second chance at love for the main characters was compelling and romantic. The romance and the suspense were balanced. The pacing was of course, fast, the dialogue appropriate to characters and ...more

Book #2 of series. This one was a little better than the first. There is more action and the pace is faster. The romance is still a little lacking, but it's an ok book. Having said that, this one is not on par with what I've come to expect from Mrs. Sala. She's one of my favorites and this book just seemed a little flat when compared with her previous works. It sets up well for the third installment of the series.
Harlequin Books
"This story keeps up the whirlwind pace of the first book and adds another agent to the mix. The estranged couple doesn't dance around their differences, and their reconciliation works smoothly into the team dynamic. Meanwhile, the cat-and-mouse game with the stormchaser is exciting and nerve-wracking. It's fascinating to watch as he devolves in his behavior. Going Twice does not disappoint."

Continuing a few months from where the first book left off we're introduced to a new main character named Jo and the previous FBI team members from the first book. It was nice to see Wade get the girl he loves back and that things are working well for Tate and Nola. I wasn't surprised by the ending the last member of the FBI team needs to get his lady love so hopefully that'll happen in the next book and Herschel will either end up dead or jailed.

I always find that the middle book of a trilogy is just OK. Particularly in this go-round from Sharon Sala about a serial killer who comes out to play during natural disasters. The characters move along a little bit but nothing is solved. I know it is supposed to make me hungry for that third book however, this time I kind of just wanted the story to end here. I'm wondering if the third book will feel tedious?
