After 10 months of marital bliss, Jessica Faraday and Murphy Thornton are still discovering and adjusting to their life together. Settled in their new home, everything appears to be perfect...except in the middle of the night when, in the darkest shadows of her subconscious, a deep secret from Jessica's past creeps to the surface to make her strike out at Murphy.
When investigative journalist Dallas Walker tells the couple about her latest case, known as the Pine Bridge Massacre, they realize Jessica may have witnessed the murder of a family while visiting family at the winery near-by, and suppressed the memory.
Determined to uncover the truth and find justice for the murder victims, Jessica and Murphy return to the scene of the crime with Dallas Walker, a spunky bull-headed Texan. Can this family reunion bring closure for a community touched by tragedy or will this prickly get-together bring an end to the Thorny Rose couple?

Engaging, fast moving mystery; strong characters
Just when you think you have it all figured out...
Murder, corruption, embezzlement, family drama, fraud, and ghosts. How much more can you pack into one story? Well this one has all the twists and turns that Lauren Carr is know for and then some. When Jessica and Murphy head out to solve a mysterious death at her families winery and hotel more than just bodies are dug up. This is the second installment of the Thorney Rose Mysteries. Old favorites like Spenser, the dog, and new favorite characters like Nigel are seamlessly embroidered into this rich mystery. I found my self alternately laughing and hanging on the edge of my seat. I whole heatedly recommend this story to new fans and old of Lauren Carr.
I actually listened to this as an audible book. If you haven't tried audible.com you really should. Listening to books has not stopped me from reading them on my kindle or actual paper books. But an Audible book is great when you spend a lot of time driving or if you are riding on an airplane. Also Audible gives you a free one month trial so you have nothing to lose.
