Make Them Pay (Lucy Kincaid #12)Make Them Pay by Allison Brennan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Make them Pay by Allison Brennan is a 2017 St. Martin’s Press publication.

This twelfth installment in the Lucy Kincaid series is filled with action, suspense, intrigue and family drama.

While Sean is out of town, Lucy is surprised by the sudden arrival of Sean’s estranged sister, Eden. sudden arrival, but since she is family, Lucy agrees to let Eden stay with her.

However, Lucy soon discovers, Eden is not as excited about Lucy’s upcoming wedding as she let on, instead having some serious ulterior motives behind her sisterly visit.

It would seem that Eden and her twin brother, Liam, are looking for treasure their parents commissioned them to find before their tragic deaths. Liam’s obsession, however, has caused him to rationalize criminal activity and created a deep chasm between himself and his older brother, Kane. The treasure is rumored to be cursed, and judging by the cause and effect seen here, I am inclined to agree.

However, Lucy’s worry over an illegal adoption collides with Eden and Liam’s treasure hunt, making her a pawn and putting her in the middle of a deadly situation that only Kane, Jack and Sean can save her from.

I really enjoyed this book immensely! It’s stylish, emotional, fast-paced, with a dash or romance added in for good measure. Although some characters are left rethinking their futures, I loved seeing a few long overdue happily ever after, even though the road to happiness is bittersweet.

Overall, this is a fantastic addition to an
awesome series!
