A Wall Street Journal bestseller
All Detective Mason Callahan wanted was a quiet fishing trip with the guys—a chance to get away and unwind before Halloween.
Until he finds the body of his boss, Denny Schefte, near their remote Oregon cabin. Now all he wants is to catch the sadist who slit Denny’s throat and covered his face with a mask. Mason was the last person to see hi...more

Ava has a cameo appearance in the second book of the Mercy Killpatrick series (Merciful Truth) and she plans to add other characters from the previous series in the following books as well.(less)
Targeted is book 4 in the Callahan & McLane series, and probably my favorite so far.
FBI Special Agent Ava McLane and Detective Mason Callahan, are not only trying to maneuver their relationship and personal lives, they are trying to find a cop killer. With no suspects in sight, they killer is getting too close for comfort.
If you like police procedurals, I highly recommend this series. It is light in the romance department, like no sex scenes at all, but it worked for me because I t ...more
In defence of the book, this is #4 in a series, but I don't feel that I have missed anything that would have added to my enjoyment by not reading the previous 3 books.
It seems to all have started with the murder of Denny Schefte at a remote fishing cabin where he was on a trip with his buddies and workmates. But di ...more
Mason and his buddies are on a fishing trip. Time for rest and relaxation but then one of the party ends up dead.
Mason hoped his own death wouldn't leave stains for a stranger to remove. He'd rather die under a fir tree, his blood soaking into the ea...more
It's a very good thing Targeted was a great read because it would have sucked to have a terrible read on my birthday.
( In case you didn't get that, it's my birthday!!!PARTY HAAAARD!!)
I wasn't able to read the 3rd book of the series but that doesn't mean it lessens the wow factor of the book. Granted, there's some spoilers for the 3rd book but it really didn't bother me at all. Targeted is so much better than the 2nd book of the series (which I gave 3 stars).
I love how Elliot puts her readers on ...more
The Callahan & McLane series feature Mason Callahan, a detective in the Portland Police Department and Special Agent Ava McLane with the FBI. In the first book they meet and develop a relationship and then their relationship continues to develop in the next books in the series. Eac ...more
Addictive romantic suspense with the emphasis on suspense in this one. I love how each case they are working on has been differe ...more
I am enjoying the Callahan & McLane series immensely. In addition to a new mystery to solve with each book, you have the ongoing relationship of Ava and Mason and the problems that Ave has with the mental illness of her twin sister, Jayne. Kendra Elliot writes Ave and Mason as real people with real ongoing issues. Not your typical Romantic-Suspense series.

This is the fourth book in the Callahan & McLane series that can be read as a stand-alone.
It wasn’t easy arranging identical time off for a group of detectives and their boss yet they managed to get away for a much needed relaxation fishing trip prior to Halloween. What they didn’t expect was to wake up one morning to find their boss murdered, his throat slit with a horror mask covering his face. Detective Mason Callahan was the last person to speak to him an ...more
I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, this does not affect my opinion of this book or the content of my review.
I've been with this series since the beginning. What attracted me was that it is a story about grown-ups being actual grown-ups, which has continued. Where we last left Ava she was broken, shattered even, and while the novel itself was complete we were nowhere near actual closure for Ava. It has been a long wait, but in the end totally worth it! As this is th ...more
"Mason read the names on the gravestones. DEE CAYED. WILL B. BACK. PAUL TERGEIST."
Another stellar contribution to the Callahan & McLane FBI murder/mystery procedurally series. Mason Callahan has gone on a fall fishing trip with four other detectives when he discovers his boss dead of a slit throat wearing a Pinhead mask. It's disturbingly similar to the recent hanging death of an FBI agent wearing a Freddy Krueger mask that had been ruled a suicide. As more cops are killed and posed in m ...more
The suspense is tight, the investigation of the criminal behind the callous murders is intriguing, and keeps the reader on toes till nearly the end. I loved how the task force put the puzzle pieces together, the teamwork is commendable, and the crime scenes atrocious, each on their own wa ...more
Recieved from NetGalley for my honest review.
The 4th book in this series by Kendra Elliot, a new-ish author who I've enjoyed just about every book of. Targeted was another great book in the series and I actually enjoyed ...more
I admit, without shame, that Mason and Ava's relationship is what I most enjoy in this series. Deep down, I'm a romantic!
But Mason and Ava's engagement isn't all t ...more
It was nice to see Ava and Mason working together to get the to the bottom of things. Nice to see them have a united front against Ava's sister and for them to get some resolution on their relationship.
Can I just say too, that KU free narration is a fanfuckintastic addition to KU!!
I have no idea why Ms. Elliot doesn’t just kill Jayne off. She’s in every book and she lives to make Ava’s life a living hell. There will never be anything that can redeem the stupid girl and nothing that can ever make her likable. If a book were ever written where Jayne came around to being a decent person I would never read it, that’s how much I hate her. I’m at 50% of the book and I get irritated just hearing her name mentioned. I hope by the end of the book she’s dead.
I just ...more
