Publisher's Summary

There's a body buried behind a Mississippi farmhouse. Grace Montgomery knows who it is, and she knows why it happened. She was only 13 the night it all went wrong. And now, like then, she has no choice but to keep her mouth shut. Grace left the town of Stillwater 13 years ago, trying to forget, trying to make good. As an assistant D.A. in Jackson, she's finally achieved the success that was supposed to change her life. But it hasn't, so she's come back to confront her own history. Which means returning to the farmhouse now owned by her brother and facing the people of Stillwater, a number of whom suspect the truth.
Widower Kennedy Archer is one of those people. He's running for mayor and needs to stay as far away from Grace as possible. And yet, she's an enigma he can't resist. Even though her enemies are close to finding out what really happened...and that could ruin them both.

What the Critics Say

"Compelling...Novak expertly mixes her usual superior characterization with a chilling sense of evil as she pairs up a complicated heroine with a dark past with a caring, honorable man who gives her hope for the future." (Booklist)

Suspending Disbelief

There were a few interesting aspects of this book if the reader or listener is looking for escapist junk but it is grating to find a character, who is smart enough to put herself through college and law school and is supposedly an officer of the court, stupid enough to commit the act of breaking and entering. I wanted to scream at her for being such an idiot and for allowing another character to harass her without this dumb bunny getting a restraining order against him. The reader was simply awful, especially when she was doing a male character.

Disappointing

I was very disappointed with this book. I expected a mystery and instead got a peculiar Southern romance novel with not very mysterious mystery elements thrown in. Additionally, the Southern accent of the narrator was over the top. However, if you are a lover of the Harlequin Romance genre, I'm sure you'll love this book.
