    This was an amazing book with chapters written by different authors. There was continuity throughout the book which must be hard with so many writing styles but it was an incredible story!

    When Public defender Alex Stone wins an acquittal for her client, Dwayne Reed, accused of murdering a fellow drug dealer, Alex fears that Reed may murder an entire family in retribution for damaging testimony at his trial. If that weren't enough, the man she put it on the line for in court threatens to attack her lover, Dr. Bonnie Long. With surprising twists and gut-wrenching suspense, this riveting story will keep you on the edge of the precipice as you see just how far Alex will go to protect the innocent.

    Nicole Frank shouldn't have been able to survive the car accident, much less crawl up the steep ravine. Not in the dark, not in the rain, not with her injuries. But one thought allows her to defy the odds and flag down help: Vero.

    Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on local homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief…until her brother is caught in the middle of a murder investigation - the victim is his ex-wife. As her brother is tried and convicted in the media, and bloggers have a field day, Cathy wonders if she should have taken the threat more seriously.

And though she's proud of the quiet, self-sufficient life she's created running a successful flower shop, she knows something is missing. Her life could use a little excitement.

    Thirty-two-year-old, fourth-generation St. Paul Homicide Detective Michael “Mac” McRyan thought his day was going to be less stressful. His day would involve paper work, coffee, and maybe even an early trip to the pub. Then his cell phone tells him his day is about to change. A body has been found in a high-end condominium between Summit and Grand Avenues; and it's not just anyone.

    What did you like best about At First Sight? What did you like least?

    I liked the way the character kept trying to get to the girl.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen J. Cannell’s story?

    It would have been better to leave out some details (like running over the ex with the car) until later in the book. That would have been more exciting.
