With the final sentence of Pitch Black resonating in my mind, I eagerly picked up Black at Heart, the final book in the Black CATs trilogy. Author Leslie Parrish has certainly made it impossible for me to stop reading, even if I wanted to. I am consumed with curiosity about how it will all end.
Presumed dead at the hands of a sexual predator, agent Lily Fletcher is recovering from her physical and emotional wounds in Maine. Given free rein over Wyatt Blackstone's family home, she heals and becomes a new Lily. Bowing to her wishes to remain “dead” only Wyatt and another member of the team, Brandon, know she is alive.
Back in Virginia, the failed capture and death of two agents has everyone in an uproar. The agent in charge nearly lost his job, and even Wyatt was reprimanded, though he was not directly involved. He has more important things to worry about. Someone is using lilies as a calling card for murder, and Wyatt hopes that he can keep his former agent away from scrutiny.
All I can say as I finish this trilogy is “Wow!” Author Leslie Parrish has penned a taut dramatic set of novels that deliver everything readers hope for. There is suspense, danger and romance all wrapped up in three superlative books. The Black CATs series exceeded my expectations and provided hours of page-turning pleasure.
