Fatal Exchange, by Lisa Harris is a great book in the Southern Crimes series that you won’t want to put down. I read this book in only a few days, and it was a very fast read for me. Emily Hunt has a family of police officers, but she chose to become a high school history teacher. When her classroom is taken hostage by Rafael, a young boy who is connected to the drug cartel through his brother, Emily finds herself in the middle of a situation connecting her to Mason Taylor. Mason was the best friend of her recently deceased older brother Michael, and some people (specifically Emily Hunt’s sister Avery North) believe Mason had something to do with Michael’s death.
I really liked the fast pace of this story, which made me feel like I didn’t want to put the book down. It covers the span of only about a day, but there is a lot of great details and in depth descriptions in this book. Although I don’t often read contemporary fiction books, I was really glad I read this one, and I will definitely be recommending it to my family members who like to read.
