Debt to Pay Book Review

I got Robert B. Parker's Debt to Pay (A Jesse Stone Novel) by Reed Farrel Coleman out of the library because it was the next book in the Jesse Stone series.  I was excited to start it but it always got put farther down in the pile because it was such a big and heavy book that it seemed hard to figure out why I would want to carry it.  I finally started it and got to read most of it at home.

All is quiet in Paradise, except for a spate of innocuous vandalism. Good thing, too, because Jesse Stone is preoccupied with the women in his life, both past and present. As his ex-wife, Jenn, is about to marry a Dallas real-estate tycoon, Jesse isn’t too sure his relationship with former FBI agent Diana Evans is built to last. But those concerns get put on the back burner when a major Boston crime boss is brutally murdered. Despite all evidence to the contrary, Jesse suspects it’s the work of Mr. Peepers, a psychotic assassin who has caused trouble for Jesse in the past.

Peepers has long promised revenge against the Mob, Jesse, and Suit for their roles in foiling one of his hits—and against Jenn as well. And though Jesse and Jenn have long parted ways, Jesse still feels responsible for her safety. Jesse and Diana head to Dallas for the wedding and, along with the tycoon’s security team, try to stop Peepers before the bill comes due. With Peepers toying with the authorities as to when and where he’ll strike, Jesse is up against the wall. Still, there’s a debt to pay and blood to be spilled to satisfy it. But whose blood, and just how much?

I was excited to get started on this next book in the Jesse Stone series.  It was another one that was hard to put down because I needed to find out what was going to happen next.  Jesse is looking into someone who is shooting out the tires in the cars around Paradise but making no progress.  Jesse gets an invitation to his ex-wife Jenn's wedding.  He is set that he isn't going to be going until he puts together the shot out tires with another two crimes that were committed by Mr. Peepers.  Mr. Peepers sends Jesse a picture with a note on the back that he is going to harm Jenn so Jesse and his girlfriend, Diana head to Texas to help protect Jenn.  At the same time, things are going on in Paradise and they realize that they are needed back there to help the rest of the people that would be targets.  There is so much action going on in this book and you need to pick it up to see how everything ends up but I think that you will be surprised and amazed.  I was sad to come to the end of this book because I think that it might be the last book currently published.  I am going to have to keep my eye out for the next book in this great series!!  I hope that you check out this book and the rest of this series and enjoy it as much as I have!!!
