I was given a copy of "The Unforgivable Fix" by T.E.Woods, through Random House Publishing Group-Alibi, via Net Galley. I wish to thank both the publishing company and the author for providing me with a Kindle copy to read.

This is the third book in the “Justice” series and Ms. Woods third novel. This is a fast-paced thriller and a must read for those that enjoy crime fiction. I read the previous novels "The Fixer" and "The Red Hot Fix", and now here, the reader gets to reconnect with the main ch

A real psychological thriller, written by and about a psychologist. The characters are mostly criminals who harm society through drugs, murder or child abuse. The pace is swift but the malevolence spoils the story.

I am so excited to have read the third book in The Fixer book series. I didn't think it could get any better but by golly it did! The Fixer is BACK ladies and gentlemen, oh yes! These books have been some of my most favourite read books of 2014 and I have read a LOT of books this year.

Liddy is back and opening up her Psychology practice again in this book. Detective Mort Grant is settling down on a houseboat he has bought to live in. All seems calm...but it's the calm before the storm.

The Unforgivable Fix by T. E. Woods is a 2014 Alibi publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

We touch base with Mort and Lydia again, Mort has finally made contact with his daughter, Allie. However, this is not a warm and fuzzy family reunion. Allie is the target of a very dangerous Russian crime lord and Mort hides her with “The Fixer”, Lydia.

This is the first in this terrific series I have "only" given 4*. It was almost a hat-trick BUT there were some dumb mistakes in this that really ought to have been noticed. The writing in this was also a little odd in that Mort was off doing his own thing throughout and we weren't party to anything he was really doing.
Don't get me wrong, still a tremendous series and one I'm definitely sticking with but in a paid-for book the proofreading should be up to snuff. I preferred this one to number 2,

My View:
By far the best read in this series!

T E Woods just gets better and better. I enjoyed the last book and was expecting this to be a kind of winding up of the series but so pleased that is not how it turned out. This, the 3rd book in the series is a fast paced, exciting novel full of mysteries and moral dilemmas.
I like hearing more of the psychologist side of the story, the cases, protocols and the client/doctor discussions.

In this novel we learn more about The Fixer, her relationships an

Why, why did you, the publishers, the editor or whoever change the theme of the covers??!!??
I love Lydia, Mort and now detective Bauer and I love that I never know what's going on and I mean that in a good way! I was wondering how you were going to tie up the loose ends.

There are always a few stories going on in "T's" books. this time we have some nasty perverts preying on young

Another solid instalment in the Fixer series. I didn't like this one quite as much as the first two (some of the situations seemed too contrived for me), but it was thoroughly enjoyable nonetheless. As usual, narrator Christina Delaine brought her best with many unique voices for the characters. Looking forward to reading the next in series soon.

Wow, wow, wow! This series just gets better and better. Lydia and Mort may not be partners but they sure do work well together when it’s necessary. This was all about Lydia working at her psychology offices again and hiring a young man to work for her, only to find out he was really working against her and then tried to blackmail her in the end.

And it was also about Mort’s daughter, who was the lover to a man who was known throughout the world as the leader of a drug cartel and when he screwed u

Bell, Book & Candle | Unforgivable Fix Review

This book blew my expectations out of the water. I figured it would just be one huge "every character has drama" book. Amazingly, it was like some rated M for mature Superman book. The female lead, Lydia, is successful psychiatrist by day; The Fixer by night (dun dun duunnn).

Story is pretty fast paced- maybe not with action, but the story itself is engrossing

The Unforgivable Fix by T. E. Woods is a not-to-be-missed, very highly recommended third installment of the Justice series, which features The Fixer.

Wowza! I unabashedly love the Fixer. The series by T. E. Woods begins with The Fixer followed by The Red Hot Fix, and now the latest, The Unforgivable Fix. The synopsis tells followers a modicum about what's happening with this third book of the series (Mort trying to move on and his wayward daughter, Allie, returning), but let me just clue you in t

The Unforgivable Fix by T. E. Woods is the third book in A Justice Novel series and it is every bit as good as the other two.

This book is a book about changes and moving on with your life. Detective Mort Grant has decided to sell his house because it is too full of memories of his prior life. He realizes he needs to let go and move on with his life. He talks his good friend Lyia into re-opening her psychology practice.

This is book three of the Mort Grant series and if you haven't read the others you must read them first. Mort is a Seatle Policeman and he knows who The Fixer (a female assassin) is but he has chose to keep it secret because she saved his life..back in another book.

She is also a psychologist and in this book she goes back to being a psychologist and is supervising a new guy. Mort's daughter is in trouble and calls on her to help protect her from drug lords.

The 3rd book in the Mort Grant series by TE Woods.
I had already read the first book and inadvertently read the 2nd and 3rd out of order but it didn't spoil my enjoyment. In fact I enjoyed the book so much I started the 2nd book the instant I had finished the 3rd book.
A little bit slow at the start and I did wonder if I was going to enjoy it but then for me it suddenly came to life and I was hooked. Great characters and plenty of thrills and spills to keep the pages turning fast. I will certainly

The third in T.E. Woods’ Mort Grant series, The Unforgivable Fix returns us to Seattle and Mort and Lydia. We find them recovering from the events related in The Red Hot Fix . There is a general air of moving on and letting go, as Mort finally sells the house he shared with his beloved wife and Lydia is trying to leave The Fixer behind and to forget Oliver, her sort-of-ex-boyfriend. Yet however much we might want to forget our past, the past often doesn’t want to let us go, as Mort finds out wh ...more

T.E. Woods

I recently finished The Unforgivable Fix by T. E. Woods, which is the third book in the Fixer series. I had read the second one, and was a bit confused about the characters and background (I still need to read the first one). But with the knowledge of The Red Hot Fix in hand, this one made much more sense and I really enjoyed it. I like the secret lives that many of the characters are hiding, and Lydia (the Fixer) is excellent in her role.

"The Unforgivable Fix" by T. E. Woods was a really good book. It was a little different than I thought it would be after reading the synopsis. This is the third book in the series of "Fixer" books and after reading this one, I'd recommend reading them in order, which I didn't do! I think the story would be even more improved if I'd known the back history of the character called "The Fixer".

For 4 years Mort Grant’s daughter has been incommunicado with her family and friends. No one knows where she is or what she is doing. Then one day she shows up on her father’s doorstep begging for his help.

Allie has found herself on the run from one of the world deadliest drug leaders, the Russian crime lord, Tokarev. There’s only one safe place Mort can hide her away from the authorities – with The Fixer. But can even The Fixer get justice for Allie?

Instead here she is trying to set up her practice again despite retiring her other persona, known as The Fixer, a vengeance assassin that has killed with no remorse.

Allie took off years ago and has been living with Patrick, a drug kingpin. Patrick does something stupid and, scared of the retaliation against her, Allie returns home to seek protection from her father, Mort, who is a police detective. Mort asks Lydia, a therapist, to let Allie stay with her. Lydia was once "The Fixer" ... you could hire her to fix situations. Against her better judgement and her dislike of Allie, Lydia lets her move into her home.

I was a fan of the first two books and was excited to get a copy of The Unforgiveable Fix from Netgalley (in exchange for my honest review). TUF did not let me down. One of the reasons I enjoy this series so much is that I think I know where they're going and they always manage to surprise me. When I started this book, I kept thinking about the title and thought I figured out early on what was ultimately going to happen and I was kinda sorta of right (maybe 20%).

It's time to get back into the world, perhaps reopen her practice.

When I picked up Book #1 in T.E. Woods’ Justice series, I had no idea I would get hooked on it. I almost didn’t review it since it was only available as an e-book and I know some of you still don’t have e-readers. I could hardly wait for The Unforgivable Fix to be available to reviewers. I think it could possibly be read as a stand-alone novel, although I think you’d definitely benefit from having read the novels that precede it. This series continues to evolve, which is wonderful.
