Shock Loss by J.W. Becton ~ My Review

Shock Loss (Southern Fraud Thriller #5) by J.W. Becton 

Publication Date: October 14th, 2015 
Publisher: Whiteley Press, LLC 
Pages: 248 
Received: E-copy from the author 
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

I was so excited to hear that Shock Loss, the fifth book in the Southern Fraud Series was coming out that I read it soon after receiving it! I loved it! I so enjoy spending time with Julia and Vincent, that I'm going to be totally bummed when the series is over. 

Now, this series is a continuing series, but at the same time, there is a solved mystery in each book. The continuing aspect is more of a personal nature than business, i.e. Vincent and Julia's growing romance that leaves us wanting more! And a cold case involving the rape of Julia's sister. So, I would suggest you read them in order.  But things change a bit in Shock Loss, and we are left hanging at the end.

Julia and Vincent are in trouble! Each of them is being framed for a crime they didn't commit. At the same time, someone is trying to kill them. Looking back at past cases, Julia and Vincent try to figure out who's out to get them. There are so many people who could be holding a grudge against them that they can't trust anyone - not even the police.

I love Julia's neighbor and best friend, Helena. I love the relationship they have - running over for coffee, having girl talk, but also, the fact that Helena is a US Attorney is a huge help for Julia, and she is one of only a handful of people that Julia can trust. 

It was fun to see some of the characters from past books in this one too! As Julia tries to figure out who may be seeking their revenge on them. 

As always, I love the chemistry between Julia and Vincent! I'm so happy that they take their romance a few steps closer in this one! 

I really enjoyed Shock Loss! I think it might be my favorite of the series so far! I can't wait for the next and final book of the series!

  1. I've had my eye on Jennifer's series for a while. I love when couples work together on a mystery. Nice review, Candy!
