Publisher's Summary

The past is never over. It just gets dusty.
Lisa Grant was a rising star in a prestigious law firm in Lexington, Kentucky, when the firm went bankrupt and she lost her job. With an ailing mother to care for, she takes the first job she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan. Scott is as disagreeable as he is sexy, and Lisa suspects the only reason she got the job was Scott’s fond feelings for her mother, who treated him well when he was just a farmhand on the Grants’ large horse farm while Lisa was growing up.
After she misses an important court date, Lisa doesn’t get any special treatment from Scott. As punishment, he sends her to organize cold-case files in the basement of the courthouse. What Lisa expects to be a mind-numbingly boring task turns into anything but when a missing-persons case draws her attention. The details of the case are engrossing: an entire family — father, mother, and two children — disappeared without a trace more than 28 years ago. Except that’s not all: the mother in a photo Lisa finds could be her own twin.
Before Lisa can learn more, a series of catastrophes strikes close to home, and she realizes that finding the photo has put her in terrible danger. Determined to uncover the truth, she confides in Scott, and their relationship develops into something beyond that of employer and employee. Together they unravel a terrifying web of criminal connections that could shatter what Lisa knows of her past. And it’s clear someone will go to shocking lengths to make sure certain secrets stay hidden.

I Managed to Finish Listening

This book would be much better if it had been edited to half its length. There is far too much extraneous stuff, especially about what Lisa is thinking, feeling, and/or how her breathing is quickening. Come on! I'd like to know if any real person would be as aware of her every emotion, feeling, or quivering as Lisa seems to be. In fact, the character of Lisa, in spite of all the feedback about her response to everything, is not really well developed. I suspect that the author wants Lisa to come across as a strong, appealing woman. I came away feeling that I knew too much about Lisa's responses and not enough about what kind of a person she is. The character of Scott could use some rewrite as well. Rude and manly don't do it. There needs to be more to make the reader want to root for Scott to win over Lisa.
Then there's the plot or lack of it. When I read the reviews of this book, I thought the plot line had tremendous potential. When I got through the book, I thought that there has to be a better way to develop the plot. I am still confused about how some of the plot is supposed to have taken place. I would not have bothered reading this book had I known how boring it would be. I hung in there just to find out how the author would explain the mysteries. It was very unsatisfying.

Would give it 10 stars if I could!

This is one of the best books I have listened to on audible in a long time. The story is fantastic and the chemistry between the two main characters, Scott and Lisa is amazing! Narrator did a great job too. The story grabs you and pulls you in from the beginning - I couldn't put it down!!! I loved it so much that I listened to it twice. Don't pass on this one.

A young family is murdered and the cold case is reviewed twenty years later by a young prosecutor who bears an uncanny resemblance to the mother. She makes it her mission to solve the cold case, but somebody is trying their best to stop her. Good thing she has a mega hunky DA to help!
