Sacred Sins Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Sacred Sins

This was the first Nora book I ever read, and after 25 others, its still my favorite. The loves scenes were romantic, and you could imagine them, but they weren't sleazy and graphic. Detective Ben Paris is a police officer in Washington, D.C. Him and his partner investigate a string of murders by "the priest". The killer targets young women, kills them and leaves a note proclaiming they are 'saved.' The Captain of the DC police department and the Mayor bring in a shrink. Dr. Tess Court. Her and Ben battle over each other professions, and fall for each other. AWESOME BOOK!!!

The review of this Book prepared by Heather Nabers

This is the story of Dr. Tess Court and Detective Ben Paris and the circumstance that brings them into each other's lives. They must deal with each other and the serial killer that is on the loose and that has locked onto Tess as his next victim. Under all this, Ben has a secret that he has'nt told Tess. It's a secret that answers why he dislikes her profession so much. It is an incredibly well-written romance/suspense novel! Two thumbs up!
The review of this Book prepared by Caro R.

Dr. Tess Court and Detective Ben Paris are finding all there is to know about love and each other while trying to stop a deranged serial killer from continuing his fanatical mission on the streets of Washington D.C. This is a very fast-paced read but Nora also takes the time to submerge us in an incredible love. I really enjoyed it!
