It's been eighteen years since TV crime reporter Andi Hollister's sister was murdered. The confessed killer is behind bars, and the execution date is looming. But when a letter surfaces stating that the condemned killer didn't actually do it, Detective Will Kincaide of the Memphis Cold Case Unit will stop at nothing to help Andi get to the bottom of it. After all, this case is personal: the person who confessed to the crime is Will's cousin. They have less than a week to find the real killer before the wrong person is executed. But much can be accomplished in that week--including uncovering police corruption, running for your life, and falling in love.

With the perfect mixture of intrigue and nail-biting suspense, award-winning author Patricia Bradley invites her readers to crack the case--if they can--alongside the best Memphis has to offer.

I believe I read another novel in this series in the past which may have been why I requested this first book in the series. I think I liked the other novel better. I didn't realize this was book 1 in the series while I was reading it--I guess it makes sense since the cold case unit seems to be being formed.

Potential Spoilers Ahead--read more at your own discretion:

Andi wants to make a name for herself in journalism--apparently as a testament to what her deceased sister wanted. So much so that she's putting off fixing her back that she hurt to get a story and is willing to take pain meds for it. She's also deluding herself that she's not becoming addicted to them and apparently is using them to dull emotional pain as well.

Jimmy confessed to killing Andi's sister, but now someone from the past steps forward to say that there is proof he didn't do it. With only a few days before the execution is to take place, Jimmy's cousin, Will, must hustle to put together the pieces of the story to find out the truth before it is too late to save Jimmy. ( )

A perfectly gripping start to Patricia Bradley’s Memphis Cold Case series, Justice Delayed delivers everything a fan of romantic suspense could want. With plenty of high-stakes action, drama, and danger amidst, of course, the suspense and romance, a murder thought to be solved needs to be reopened as a cold case and brings a reporter and a detective together to find the true killer. Moving at a fast pace, this plot kept me intrigued at every turn, and I enjoyed guessing at the truth along with the characters. Well-written and realistically compelling to the very end, Justice Delayed is a page-turner that lovers of romantic suspense should not skip. I recommend it.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a complimentary copy of Justice Delayed and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )

Title: Justice Delayed (A Memphis Cold Case Novel #1)
Author: Patricia Bradley
Pages: 352
Year: 2017
Publisher: Revell
My rating 5+ out of 5 stars.
A friend of mine has read and enjoyed Patricia’s novels for a long time now not until I read her newest story did I fully understand the reason. In Justice Delayed, we meet a spunky woman named Andi whose sister was murdered many years ago. Even with the age difference Andi was close to her sister and became a journalist due to the last words she heard her sister speak to her.
In the past, four women stewardesses lived together and may have become involved in illegally smuggling rough diamonds into the States. While not technically a cold case, the man who is to be executed for murder in a matter of a few days receives a letter stating he didn’t do the deed. Now, his cousin, who is a detective in the cold case unit, must try to find out the real perpetrator or the evidence that proves the man’s guilt. The twist is they are related and Andi knows them as well, having grown up together in the same neighborhood.
Both Andi and her brother Brad and detective Will eventually come together to find out the truth about Stephanie even though their friendship is strained by the case. Will has issues with his birth mother and her coming once again into his life uninvited along with trying to keep Andi from further harm as she digs into stories that are dangerous. Add to that the growing feelings Will has towards her and vice versa and the story just keeps getting better and better.
I loved how well the author kept me guessing as to who committed what deed and how the various threads of different cases may come together to reveal a completed tapestry of truth. There are familiar issues, addiction, danger, action and adventure all while on the road to uncover the truth that has been buried for over a decade. I hope if you are not familiar with Patricia Bradley’s books that you too will grab a copy and enjoy the mystery and the tension as it builds throughout the story all the way to the conclusion! ( )
