Jerrie Alexander describes her novels as dealing with alpha males and kick-ass women. “Till Justice is Served” is no exception. Erin Brady is a high school counsellor who turns in a student when she accidentally drops her purse and drugs are discovered. The student claims that Erin made a sexual advance that she turned down and an injustice was done.
The student is murdered and the small Texas town points to Erin as the guilty party. Rafe Sirilli is an FBI agent home on leave to take care of his recently deceased father’s affairs. Rafe and Erin have a not-so-good history going back to high school. He is enlisted to help find the killer by his father’s friend who rescued Erin from homelessness when she was in high school.
More murders take place and Rafe/Erin become a couple who work their way through more murder, anger, misunderstandings, steamy sex scenes, and violence before arriving at a mutual understanding.
It’s a fast-paced story that captures a small town’s spirit with a focus on the aforesaid alpha males and kick-ass women.
