MY REVIEW

For some reason when I hear the genre romantic suspense, I think a light read.  While this book was an easy and quick read, it was not light.  I wish there was a better comparison than an onion, but the layers in this story were very well done and I enjoyed the peeling process.

From the first page I was plunged into a wild scene of anticipation, weather, characters and dread. (Reminder to self – never start this author’s books at 11 pm!)

Ainsley, the main character, at first appears a little miffed (not angry but something has rubbed her the wrong way in life).  Quickly the reader can start to understand the history behind the attitude and realize that Ainsley is one tough cookie. Working an investigation in a small town where many know you and all your past, Ainsley is an impeccable professional.  Her counterpart and past romantic connection is Linc.  A man who has his own issues and has managed to find his place in their hometown – but will he find a place back in Ainsley’s heart?

The author does a great job of helping the reader understand situations without giving them so much background that it pulls them down instead of staying in the story.  At no time did I feel as if I was missing out by not reading the other books in this series.  However, the other books are going on to my ‘Want To Read’ list as the idea of a series centered around an area and occupation is intriguing.

As a side note, part of me would love to see a book highlighting the two elderly sisters, Rose & Cora.  I could see them solving crimes and kicking butts with manners and charm.

The ending was a bit of a neat bow which, while this helps with closure and making this a standalone read inside a series, I for one, would have enjoyed a little more.

When evil just won’t quit, good must prevail

Investigative Services Branch ranger Ainsley Beaumont wishes the visit to her hometown of Natchez, Mississippi, was under better circumstances. When she arrived to investigate the murder of a pregnant teenager, she never imagined that she would become the killer’s next target–or that she’d have to work alongside an old flame.

After he almost killed a child, former FBI sniper Lincoln Steele couldn’t bring himself to fire a gun, which had deadly consequences for his best friend. Crushed beneath a load of guilt, Linc is working at Melrose Estate as an interpretive ranger. But as danger closes in on Ainsley during her murder investigation, Linc will have to find the courage to protect her.

The only question is, will it be too little, too late?
