Dangerous Passage by Lisa Harris
Avery North is a a detective who is struggling to balance her life at work and still find time for her teenager daughter. It's difficult for her to balance the two because her job seems so intertwined into every aspect of her life.
When two murders occur to two Asian women with magnolia tattoos, Avery already has her mind made up that she is going to solve this case. All Avery can think about is that those girls could have been her daughter.
Throughout the book, Avery enlists the help of the medical examiner, Jackson Bryant to help with the case, meanwhile falling for him.
It is quickly evident from the beginning of the book that Avery is dealing with a lot of issues. The problem of balancing her life at home and at work, the unsolved mystery of the death of her brother, the thought that she could ever make time for a boyfriend in her life...these problems only scratch the surface of Avery's life.
I thought this book was pretty complex with all of it's different issues, but I really loved it! I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard that it was a book about a detective solving homicides, but it's not gory, or gruesome at all. It's very tasteful, and actually a very interesting read! It was definitely a page turner, and once I started I found it difficult to put down! I am eager to read the second book in this series!
