Publisher's Summary

Miranda Vaughn was once falsely accused of stealing millions, and now she's helping others who are facing criminal charges. While being an assistant to her former defense attorney isn't Miranda's dream job, she's eager to prove herself, and her first task is a simple one - protect Kathryn, a shy CFO turned informant, and help her prove that a popular real estate developer is embezzling millions from his company. But what should be a straightforward assignment is deliciously complicated when Miranda is thrown together with FBI Agent Jake Barnes, the man who saved her life, broke her heart, and then disappeared.
Beneath the neatly plotted rows of new homes lurk dark secrets, bitter feuds and a whole lot of greed. Nothing is what it appears; even Miranda's timid client is hiding secrets of her own. Despite her growing distrust of her client, Miranda must protect Kathryn from becoming the target of the FBI's investigation and protect herself from the real thief - all while protecting her heart from the sexy FBI agent she can't seem to resist.

Temporary headline

Miranda has learned that "not guilty" is not the same as "innocent" in the mind of the public. She's now working for her defense attorney, who is now also her mother's lover. (Awkward.) And she's protecting a corporate CFO who claims her boss may be doing something illegal with the books.

The mystery is interesting. Miranda is likeable. There are twists and turns to keep you guessing. And maybe there's the potential of a little romance, although the FBI agent who's investigating the CFO's allegations is giving decidedly mixed signals.

I enjoyed this and will listen again. I recommend it.

Ahh..don't know what to say...

I haven't listened to the first book, so the first part was very confusing when I had to figure what Mirandas role in all this was. Along with her former relationship with Jake, that was confusing as well. I'll recommend you to start with the first book, as I don't quite see this as a standalone. Things will be explained later on, but I still felt I had missed a lot.

Compared to other reviews I didn't share the same enthusiasm while listening. I really couldn't see Miranda in all this police/FBI world. I saw her as an ordinary girl, but she was working as an undercover police officer in many dangerous situations. I can better relate if this was a paranormal story.

Many reviewers also said it was fun. As I didn't laugh at all, I just found Miranda to be immature and teenish.

The narration was top-notch though. Teri Schnaubelt was totally awesome and delivered a fast-paced, action packed story. She was the reason I kept listening. Her male voices are a bit funny, though, but she was exellent.
