M.K. Gilroy's Every Breathe You Take ~ Reviewed

Every Breath You Take [Paperback] 
M. K. Gilroy (Author) 
Paperback: 400 pages
Publisher: Worthy Publishing (October 23, 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1617950688    
A high-profile murder tied to an online dating service has the Chicago news media buzzing. Who better to go undercover in the world of personal profiles and promising matches than an ace detective who is single and as attractive as she is tough? Detective Kristen Conner can't figure out her own dating life, but she is about to get a crash course on finding true love - or at least a Friday night date - and become the object of a killer's affections.
Every Breath You Take is book two in a series by M.K. Gilroy. Though I haven't read book one I easily entered the continuing story of Detective Kristen Conner. And since I love police procedurals and a bit of mystery I found myself turning pages pretty rapidly. I also appreciate a strong female character who isn't a superwoman. Kristen is a wee bit of a mess but can kick some serious hind-end when she needs to.  I've watched a lot of cop television and Every Breathe You Take is that same kind of guilty pleasure, but it can be packed up and taken along during traffic jams or long flights (definitely was nice escapism during my long recent layover.) 

The subject matter obviously is not for the weak-kneed or kids. The spiritual message is low key as Kristin seems to be deciding whether or not to make God a bigger part of her life, so depending on whether or not you are looking for depth take that into consideration. A few fairly big questions are not answered in the book so there will be another in the series, so if you don't like open endings you may get frustrated.
