In Only the Good by Rosemary Reeve, we meet up with Jack, the kind-hearted litigator, his girlfriend, and long-time friend Mark, not forgetting Betsy, the dog with attitude. Jack still hates his job in the Seattle law firm, but he finds himself in deep water when he is suspected of murder. He might be able to prove his innocence on one killing but the bodies begin to pile up. Adding to this, Jack’s family, a family he didn’t know he had, is involved and he finds himself in conflict on both sides of the law. Extra suspicion falls on Jack when it is revealed that he has inherited the family business, the mansion, a holiday home and several yachts. It does not help when the police in Bellingham are determined to pin all the crimes on Jack. At the same time Jack is struggling with his own demons, about his past childhood in a selection of foster homes and his desperate desire to know who his parents were – all is not what it seems.

Only the Good by Rosemary Reeve is another action-packed, fast-moving novel starring Jack Hart. The third book in the Jack Hart series, this one follows on nicely from book one but can be read as a stand-alone. I grabbed this to review as I enjoyed the first book in the series. The reader cannot help but love Jack and his friends, even the golden-haired, almost out of control Betsy. The plot is tight, the words follow effortlessly, and the scenes are described with just the right amount of detail; not too much but enough to take you into each location. The story line had me guessing as the murders add up and suspicion falls on Jack time and time again. A great read. I am happy to award 5 stars and I am off to grab the rest of the series.
