After corporate attorney Hannah Barrett tries - and fails - to stop a kidnapping in Vegas, she can't shake the haunting image of the terrified young girl she couldn't save. She tells herself that a visit to her hometown in Scarlet Falls could be a welcome distraction. But soon, Hannah realizes the kidnappers have all the info they need to track her every move. And when chilling e-mails about the victim appear in her inbox, it's frighteningly clear what happened in Vegas has followed her home.
Eight months after a terrible family tragedy, Hannah turns to Detective Brody McNamara once again. Brody is eager to help, though he's embroiled in the investigation of a brutal murder. But the closer they work together, the stronger their feelings grow...and the more they stand to lose when two seemingly unrelated, but equally deadly, cases collide.
Minutes to Kill is the pulse-racing second novel in bestselling author Melinda Leigh's Scarlet Falls series.

I found myself more exited about Melinda Leigh and the Scarlet Falls series than I have about a book or a series in a long time, so after reading Hour of Need, I knew that I wouldn't wait long to dive into Minutes to Kill. I tend to bounce around authors and series reads quite a bit, but I was so intrigued with this series, that there wasn't much time between reading both books in this series!
I love that Melinda Leigh creates such strong characters and stories, and I find that it's difficult to not get wrapped up in what you're reading! I enjoy being able to become part of the book and getting lost in what I'm reading to or listening to, and I found it quite easy to do with this book!
The story is gripping and entertaining, shocking and suspenseful! Leigh keeps you going until the very end, with surprising twists throughout! I can't wait to see where else she is going to go with the Scarlet Falls series!
I've not listened to narration by Cris Dukeheart prior to this, but I think she was a superb choice for this series! I look forward to seeing if she will continue on with the series! Several reviewers indicated that they didn't care for the narration, however, it wasn't a problem for me!
This was a book that I was able to scarf right up! I am anxious to get my hands on the next book in the Scarlet Falls series when it comes out and to also exploring more titles written by Melinda Leigh!
