Publisher's Summary

In a new series from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh, former prosecutor Morgan Dane faces the most personal - and deadly - case of her lifetime.
After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her hometown. Now, surrounded by family, she's finally found peace and a promising career opportunity - until her babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.
Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years and can't believe he's guilty, despite the damning evidence stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.

Trite, tired dialogue

I could hardly finish this audio book. I cannot understand how anyone could give it high ratings. The reading was uninspired which was bad enough but the story often sounded like a romance book with talk of bulging muscles and leaping ovaries. The dialogue was simplistic and too often trite. As the story developed I found myself not even caring who committed the crime. I love complex characters and plot line and a story where the writing is so good it can be read again and again just for the beauty of the words. Unfortunately none of that was true with this book. Only glad I used points and did not pay for this download.

Too heavy on the romance too light on the mystery

this was an "ok" book, but I don't require or particulary care for my mystery novels to contain romantic fluff, and this book contained more fluff than most..

My kitchen has never been so clean just so I had moments to myself to listen to this wonderful book, gripping story line and amazing performance can't wait for next book in the series, roll on September
Only slight dissatisfaction was that the poor young man Nick was not exonerated inform of the town after his life had been completed destroyed - my niggle nothing against the author's ending

say again?

content repetative in places, unnecessarily which became a little irksome, however the overall plot was good.
