About the book:
They both wanted quieter, safer lives, but crime never sleeps… and killers keep killing.
After years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant is ready for the kinder, gentler life of a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes department resources. Enter ex-Navy SEAL Mac McGregor, the detective sent by the county to assist on the case. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn't want this dead person telling any tales – and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.
“The queen of inspirational romantic suspense” (Library Journal) is at the top of her game with this riveting new series.
I loved this romantic mystery/suspense novel!
The development of the two main characters is fantastic. We are gradually shown their backgrounds and what has sent both of them to their current jobs and life situations. I loved the fact that even though they are clearly attracted to each other they are disciplined enough to keep their focus on the job that they have to do.
We are shown at the very beginning the answers to the mystery. The real storyline is in finding out how the law enforcement officers will find the answers to it. Will they figure it out in time and get justice for the victim? It was a fascinating story and I was drawn into it immediately.
