Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair sequel to Blurred Lines (3.5 stars) Crossing Lines, the second book in the Cops and Docs series, is the sequel to Blurred Lines, continuing the plot threads and spinning a few new ones as well. Fans of the characters from Crossing Lines will see many of them return as more developed and multi-dimensional characters, but a few new faces are introduced to keep the story fresh. Reading Blurred Lines beforehand is a must in order to understand what’s going on here in its sequel. There is more dark humor between the cops in this one and funny conversations from other characters including the hospital nursing staff. Some funny banter comes again from Kelli interacting with her brother Sean or her partners on the police force, Williams and Travis. The drama in this one felt heavier than the previous book and main character Kelli’s behavior towards other characters, not just Nora, makes her less appealing than before. I was not a big fan of her character before, found her unlikable and her antics here in this story do little to redeem her from being considered a jerk or worse. Her scenes with Phineas show a softer kinder side to her than we might see otherwise when she’s around people but they don’t outweigh her cruelty and abrasiveness in other interactions. Nora’s character is more complex here and more interesting to read than before, both when she is around Kelli and away from her. Susan, one of the new characters, provides comic relief along with others who warm to Nora in the aftermath of her harassment suit; it’s great to read Nora as a person outside of work (off duty) and away from Kelli, something that was lacking in Blurred Lines. While Blurred Lines read very much as a novel length Rizzles fanfiction from the Rizzoli and Isles TV series, this one keeps some of that framework with Kelli’s family dynamics and dramas but expands out from there to encompass threats being placed on Nora’s life and wellbeing and felt closer to being a story not inspired by the TV show. There is plenty of personal and criminal drama in this book to keep the action alive and the reader engaged. I didn’t like the way this book ended and will see how the third book in the series begins, whether it skips over anything or keeps the same characters and locations or goes in a different direction altogether. I hope Between the Lines will be a better reading experience for me.
