Pocket Full of Posies

Bart Gutierrez is working as an officer in the Hartford police department. One morning he's helping on a raid to get the number two man in the Castillo drug cartel. During the briefing it's mentioned that the man is inside a warehouse building and that with him is their PR representative Lucy Aguayo. He's really surprised because he and Lucy grew up together in Texas, if this is the same Lucy. Things go wrong and the man finds the group of police officers, FBI, etc and threatens to kill Lucy. When there is a gun fired Bart and the rest of the officers fear the worst. What they find is Lucy, injured but well and the number 2 man shot by Lucy's hand. What Bart and the others don't know is that Lucy is an undercover FBI agent trying to bring down the Castillo cartel to revenge her father's murder. What Lucy doesn't know is that Bart is Nico Castillo's long lost son and he will do anything to get him back. The FBI learns of this and decides to use Bart as a decoy. This makes things harder for Lucy, because she's always worked alone and she has always had feelings for Bart. Will she be able to concentrate on her own job and keep herself alive, or will her feelings for Bart get them both killed?

This was a fun book. I really enjoyed the characters, I thought the plot was well written. I loved how there was danger around every corner for both Bart and Lucy. I loved how they were able to learn to work together to save those around them that they both loved. This is the third book of the Hostage Negotiation Team series, but I really like that it doesn't matter what order you read them in, they stand alone just fine.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
