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.

"Search no further for a suspenseful audiobook. And narrator Cris Dukehart gives it a dynamic performance.... With a performance that ranges from depicting fear to delivering shocking reveals, Dukehart draws the listener in from the first chapter." (AudioFile)

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..

Too many Cliches

The narrator for this book is wonderful. Perfect ,appropriate cadence, each character has their own voice without any confusion as to who is speaking.

The story starts out well and then turns in to a bad , made for TV movie. Never has a criminal actually ever uttered the cliches that they spew in this book. Even when the bad guy is thinking to himself , the words are so contrived and ridiculous.

You'll figure out who did it and who didn't simply by listening to the verbal neon signs the author has penned.

I wanted to like this book. I did not like this book.

It's of the Harlequin Romance variety of "thriller s".

Don't wast your credit.

Really enjoyed listening to this book. Have listened to Melinda's other series and enjoyed them as well. I don't often read thrillers but this was well written. Definitely worth a read or listen.
