Book Review: Fatal Mistake by Marie Force

Fatal Mistake by Marie Force

Fatal Series, Book 6

Carina Press (June 17, 2013)



A critical error. A Cinderella season cut short. A star player murdered.

D.C. is recovering from angry riots after one player’s mistake blew the D.C. Federals’ chance at the World Series, and Lt. Sam Holland is determined to unravel the twisted web of motives behind the star center fielder’s death. Was it a disgruntled fan, a spurned lover or a furious teammate?

While Sam digs through clues, her husband, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, fights for his political life in the final days of his reelection campaign as financial irregularities threaten his future. It’s a distraction Nick can ill afford with Sam in the midst of another high-profile murder investigation and both of them trying to help their adopted son, Scotty, cope with the murder of a ball player he admired.

Determined to bring the killer to justice, Sam must root out the truth before another mistake proves fatal.

Fatal Mistake is another fantastic addition to the romantic/suspense series by Marie Force. Marie Force keeps the characters interesting and has us wanting to know more and more. Most of us (Force faithful readers) have trouble putting her books down until the end.  Nick and Sam are a fantastic couple and I love reading how their love for each other continues to grow and mature in each book. This is a series where the main characters stay together and grow and we’re not tired of them. We feel we know them and that they are REAL. This book doesn’t have a lot of Nick in it, but really showcases Sam’s growth, confidence, and how great she is in her job. From her Facebook pages, her followers are emotionally drawn to this series. I attended the books launch party in Washington, DC in June 2013. (I thought I posted about it, but I didn’t so I will do that soon).  I took a tour of DC and visited many of the sites listed in the series. And yes, I kept an eye out for Nick & Sam! Any Marie Force book you can’t go wrong with, but Fatal Mistake is one of my favorites.

While the Fatal Series books can stand alone, with a complete story in each book, you will enjoy them more if you read them in order as Sam and Nick’s story unfolds chronologically.
