Hand raised, Kay Lynch holds her breath in hopes that Flynn Dowd will choose her to partner on this case. The case has caught her interest. So far there have been three incidences of sudden cardiac arrest. Each victim is an elderly man posing as a Santa but each has apparently had no heart problems in the past. It may have been passed off as a coincidence until Santa number 4 passes in the same way. So, Kay wants this case to help prove herself but she also wants it for another reason. For the first time since losing her husband 2 years earlier, Kay has found someone she really wants to be around and with.
Kay Sullivan Lynch, along with her brothers, were all police officers. When she married Mike Lynch, she hung up her badge and became a mother of 4. After Mike's death Kay decided it was time to go back to the living world. She requalified for her position with the department and was assigned to her brother Pat's precedent. Her oldest daughter Mary and the twin girls took her new life without problems. Her son Mike was a different story. He felt she should have continued life as it had been before his dad died. So, when she hooked up with Flynn, Mike made it known how he really felt about the situation.
In the St. Nick of Time has it all. It's has love but I wouldn't really call it a love story. It has murder and suspense but I wouldn't call it a mystery. It has family affairs and problems but it's not actually a self help book. And there humor but it's not a comedy. What is it? It's all of these rolled into one and I simply loved it. The trials Kay goes through as she juggles her life on the force, at home and her personal life, and her solutions and decisions for handling life, are so real. As for the Santa Slayer, I could see the possibility of that happening in real life too. This was a very enjoyable book.

She hadn't counted on Captain Flynn Dowd, tall, dark and handsome, sexy as sin. He, too, has lost people he loved .. his wife and son. So he's very much sensitive to Kay's needs.
They are immediately attracted to each other .. at the worst possible time. Someone is killing Sidewalk Santa Clauses and that's taking up a lot of their time. Kay's son is not thrilled with the fact that Flynn has been making eyes at his mother. He feels that his mother's reactions betray his father's memory.
They are working non-stop to catch the serial killer, and when Flynn dons a Santa suit and beard to go undercover, Kay is fearful of something happening to him and she's not sure she can handle a loss of someone she loves.
This is a terrific Romantic Suspense .... it's mainly romance with a little suspense thrown in. It's a feel-good story with family dynamics, love & loss, and seeing a bright future ahead. This would be a great book to read around the Christmas holidays.
How could anyone not like these characters .. full of fun, joy, and small instances of sibling rivalry. Highly recommended for anyone who likes Romantic Suspense.
I chose to read a digital copy of IN THE NICK OF TIME. All opinions expressed are my own and unbiased.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
This sexy, suspense filled mystery is a great read. What I didn’t know is that this is the fifth in a series, all about Kay’s brothers. They are on my too read list. A book I would recommend.
Kay has lost her husband and now faces having to raise her four children on her own. So she heads to what is her comfort zone and where her family is…Chicago. And back to the police department that runs deep in her family. All Kay wants is to be accepted by her peers and her family. Her brother who happens to be her superior isn’t going to give her a break at all. Kay although married before, brings a shyness of a mature woman starting a new relationship. She doesn’t know that she is still found attractive because after all she is the mother of four kids.
We get to see Kay go from mother, sister, daughter and detective throughout the story. Something most women can relate to.
In walks Captain Flynn Dowd. He moved to Chicago and joined the Police Department to get away from his troubles. He hasn’t thought of a woman in his life in such a long time and then in walks Kay. And his life gets turned upside down. Not only is she beautiful but she is dedicated to work, family, and friends.
Thrown together to solve the case of the Sidewalk Santa Killers they find themselves attracted to each other.
Kay and Flynn can’t find any rhyme or reason for the killings. Time is now against them and they need to find the murderer of the Santa’s. But they are unable to find a motive.
They also are up against her children as their romance takes off. Her kids don’t approve of Flynn. Kay has to come to terms with a difficult decision…family or the man she is falling for.
I really enjoyed this story K.M. Daughters has brought a cast of very strong characters off of the pages and right into your home. I found myself in Kay’s corner as she faces difficult challenges in her life. Kay had to find a way to create a new life for her family. One of the biggest conflicts was going back to the job she gave up years ago to be a wife and mother. Facing the loss of a husband and moving past into another loving relationship was hard. I was able to actually feel her strength as she goes against her family and becomes a working mother, daughter, sister and woman again. Most of all a woman, by choosing to do something for herself and not others, a lesson we all need from time to time.
K.M. Daughters has written a story so refreshing and alive that I felt I was able to be a very real part of it. Suspense and sexy romance who would have thought they could go hand in hand. She had me up until the very end and then I wanted more. Can’t wait to read about Kay’s brothers.
