Review: Midnight Betrayal (Midnight #3) by Melinda Leigh

Curator Dr. Louisa Hancock left behind Maine and her troubled past for Philadelphia and a job at a prominent museum. Just when it seems that Louisa’s new life is safe from her dark secrets, the body of a museum intern is found—the victim of a brutal and baffling murder.

Louisa realizes this is no random crime. And when another intern goes missing, the abduction is linked to the only man who has ever tempted Louisa’s heart—Conor Sullivan, the sexy owner of a Philly sports bar. Louisa’s past has taught her to be wary, but her heart refuses to believe Conor is guilty.

Now Conor and Louisa must dodge a police investigation—and their growing desire—as they race to find the real killer before another girl turns up dead. But trusting Conor could be deadly, especially as the evidence against him mounts…and as a merciless killer targets Louisa as the next victim.

Readers are first introduced to Conor and Louisa and all of their chemistry in Midnight Sacrifice. That same sexual tension carries over into Midnight Betrayal to give readers a sexy slice of hotness to go along with their suspense. Due to some of the actions carried out by a crazed killer Louisa has been forced to relocate and accept a new job. Now in Philadelphia (Conor’s very own hometown) she is shocked to discover that history seems to be repeating itself. Items are turning up missing from the museum, people Louisia knows all too well are turning up dead, and it involves the one man that she can’t get out of her head.

Conor knows about Louisa’s relocation to Philly. He just has no clue how to go after the woman he has nothing in common with. He also knows that he can’t keep her off his mind. The fates (or at least a psychotic killer) seem to have plans where Conor and Louisa are concerned and those plans are to keep them linked together in whatever way possible. Once the killer puts their plan into motion Conor and Louisa soon discover they are in the center of the sinister plans.

This third installment in Melinda Leigh’s Midnight series is just as intense and amazing as the previous books. All of Leigh’s books are overflowing with intensity as any romantic suspense should be. The pages never stop turning and the reader is kept guessing the who done it til the very end. I’m still shocked how Melinda spun this one. This lady can write an incredibly good romantic suspense.
