Remnants of Evil by Reily Garrett
Remnants Of Evil is book six in the McAllister Justice series of romantic suspense novels. Although stand alones, there are always themes running through, so I would suggest reading the series in order to get the most from the experience.
Abby McAllister is a lawyer and the sister to five brothers who are all connected to law enforcement.
So far each family member has had their own thriller style adventure; now it is Abby’s turn. A recent kidnapping left Abby severely shaken. The culprit is safely behind bars, but can he still reach her?
Nowhere seems safe as Abby’s police officer boyfriend and her family try to find who is currently targeting Abby, and why.
In a tense build-up with multiple red herrings, Abby struggles to balance her independence with her safety as attacks turn relentless. I’ve been a fan of this series from the beginning and have always happily agreed to read the next book, which says a lot for this author’s writing. However, although still good, this book was my least favourite of the whole series. Perhaps it was because I was expecting additional suspense with twists and an extra edgy feel for the last McAllister sibling’s tale, whereas the author took the story on a more romantic trail, especially for the ending.
Overall an acceptable finale to the series, it just wasn’t quite was I was hoping for.

Fear is an illusion banished by courage.
Two months after escaping an underground prison, Abby is determined to redefine her limits by testing the boundaries defining her existence.
Practicing law fulfills her need for order and consistency, but chaos soon decimates her neat and structured life. When a psychopathic killer draws a line in the sand, she’s forced to choose between her need for independence and the security of police protection.
Royden has spent his adult life hunting society’s worst criminal offenders. Assigned to work with a McAllister wasn’t what he’d envisioned when relocating to Portland, but everything changed after meeting his partner’s sister. When death comes searching for his new family, each clue leads either to a dead end or more possibilities.
Join the McAllisters, their better halves, and their dogs in an exciting romantic thriller.
I thought your commentary was interesting. I suppose all authors have books that are different and not as good to some readers. Everyone has different taste which is probably why writers are advised to stick to a particular genre.
