In this continuation of Chief Jo Oliver’s story, I have to strongly recommend you read these books in order. While you probably can read this by itself, you will not become truly invested in this story and the characters.

With a three-way “love” triangle murder investigation that has Jo at the center of it, and Nick and Quinn seeming to compete for Jo’s attention this book is quite the suspense novel. Jo seems to have a hard time deciding exactly who and what she wants. With a serial killer set on destroying what the three hold dear, the story demands attention at times.

I appreciate how human Jo is throughout this series. At the same time, there are times I wish she would do things differently.

So if you like crime dramas and suspense novels, check this one out for yourself to find out how things come to a conclusion.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review. ( )

I definitely recommend reading the first two books in this series before reading this one because I was a little confused for the first few chapters about what was happening until they explained some of what happened previously. Once I figured out what had happened before I really got into this story. I liked the suspense with the twists and turns. I also thought there was just the right amount of romance. I really like Jo and Nick and Sam. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

Jo Oliver is like so many of today's women. She has worked her way up and is now the Haversport Chief of Police but she also yearns to be a mother and this isn't working out quite as well. From the beginning of this book it's evident that Jo is a strong, capable woman but she is also emotionally fragile. Her efforts to adopt a seven year old girl appear to be on hold and she is also being forced to take a short leave from her job. It is while she is on vacation that she becomes caught up in the search for a murderer and her life is changed drastically. A serial killer, lots of twists and turns, and Jo herself as a target make this a book that will satisfy all who enjoy mystery and suspense.

This is the third book featuring Jo Oliver but author Catherine Finger shares prior history from the first two books to help readers who haven't read them. FBI Agent Nick Vitarello joins Chief Oliver in the hunt for the serial killer and the romantic feelings that they once shared are ignited once again. Romance lovers will enjoy this development and while they are tastefully handled, there are a few instances that may not appeal to everyone. What should appeal is that Jo's past is exactly that. She is now a Christian and there are many references to her faith and her belief in the power of prayer.

If you enjoy realistic characters, romantic suspense, and a faith-filled message, you will want to read Anchored by Death.

I received a copy of this book from the author via Celebrate Lit. There was no obligation to post a favorable review. These are my own thoughts. ( )

This is the third book in this series, and Jo Oliver is on a required rest, and while doing so, she finds a body. Now this is the second book in this series that I have read, and like the first, this one is full of action, to the point she may not make it beyond this read.
You never know what will set a killer off, and this one is deep, and will Jo, Quinn and Nick, along with others be able to take this person down, and stop the madness? Will Jo be able to bring her daughter home? Then the big question will there be a family for Samantha?
If you like a story with lots of action, bringing in the police and the FBI, this one will be the answer!

I received this book through Celebrate Lit. and was not required to give a positive review. ( )

Book three in the Jo Oliver Thriller series, “Anchored by Death” offers a mixture of mystery and romance as Jo becomes involved in another case despite being on vacation to recover from the last one. This is one series that needs to be read in chronological order in order to fully understand each character’s backstory. Because of time constraints, I have not been able to do so and have, due to my blogging schedule, instead been reading them in reverse order, which does give away the details and outcomes of the previous story. This is my issue, certainly not the author’s, and it does not affect my rating, but I want to let other readers know that the books in this series are not meant to stand alone.

Catherine Finger includes a more complex crime plot in “Anchored by Death” than in “Capsized by Death”, in my opinion. This story has a more forensic aspect to it, but it seems to me that there is too much romance and relationship drama. It does have an impact on the case, but I feel that too much time is spent on it; it distracted me from the story. While I consider this book to be a work of romantic suspense, it appears to be primarily listed as a mystery and thriller, so I was definitely expecting more from that angle. However, I will say that this is still a clean, Christian read, which is the most important aspect. I also appreciate that the characters are not stereotypical, nor are they perfect. Each has their own quirks and issues, but Finger demonstrates that God still uses them, weaknesses and all, and He will use us, too. The plotline involving the crime is one that bears fruit in an interesting way, tying main characters small-town police chief Jo Oliver and FBI agent Nick Vitarello, as well as a few other friends and agents, together. Once the dominoes begin to fall, the action intensifies, making the second half of the story my favorite.

For readers of clean, relatively short Christian mysteries with a strong dose of romance, the Jo Oliver series will likely be a good fit.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through Celebrate Lit and was not required to post a favorable review. All opinions are my own. ( )
