One For Sorrow is a work of romance and crime fiction by author Marlow Kelly. For years, Georgina Scott has been serving at the Magpie Police Department to protect them from her infamous drug-dealing father, Hank. When drugs go missing from the evidence room, the new chief suspects Georgina, and an outsider comes to investigate on the quiet. Pretending to be a new hire, Liam Mason realizes that pinning the theft on her will be more complicated than he expected. Suffering a severe head concussion while taking down one of her father's customers, Georgina finds herself off work on medical leave, which doesn’t help Liam with his investigation. His opportunity comes up when Georgina witnesses the robbery of an armored car and suggests the two work together on the case. Mason hopes that she’ll begin to trust him enough to tell him that she’s the one stealing from the evidence room. He doesn’t expect to find himself attracted to her the more they are together. Will Liam see that Georgina is putting on an act to help her father out with his dealing business, or will she be her honest self and stop at nothing to see her father put behind bars?
I typically don’t read romance novels, but I found myself hooked on reading One For Sorrow. I enjoyed Georgina’s character and how she went against how she was raised and brought up to become a police officer seeking justice instead of getting into a life of crime like her father. Liam was also well written and had such perfect chemistry with George. The storyline was straightforward and quick-paced, keeping the reader interested and on their toes until the end. Marlow Kelly has done a fantastic job with this novel, and I can’t wait to read more of the Magpie Romantic Suspense Mysteries.
