Violated (book 5) by Carolyn Arnold

I received this book to give an honest review.
I have to say I think I found a new author to read. Though this book is number 5 I didn't feel as though I was missing anything by not reading the previous books. For that I am very grateful for! 
A vacation to California for Agent Paige turns into something else and it will be up to the FBI to believe one of their own and solve the murder that has happened. 
I really liked how teamwork played a really good part in this. No one just went off on their own to find answers, no ones idea was too crazy. 
As far as characters go they felt well developed and even with the small feelings that were going on between Agent Paige and Agent Brandon it felt real.
The way everything was written and handled in solving the case and clearing Agent Paige's name you can tell the author did her research on the procurers.
As far as the killer I was very surprised that the killer was an individual I wouldn't have thought of. You always think either male or female in a case especially one that kills as graphic as this was done. So having that twist was awesome, and with Agent Zach giving some information was nice. 
I will be reading more by this author not only because of her ability to pull you into the story but her writing style is on point.
