Jeannine appeared in the room across from Mary. Her face was streaked with tears and she was visibly trembling. “Mary, I remembered,” she cried. “I remembered and it was awful.”
The time has finally come for Mary to investigate Jeannine’s murder. As all clues point to someone in Bradley’s old neighborhood, Mary and Ian move into the former Alden residence and pose as newlyweds to set Mary up as bait for the killer. With Stanley and Rosie at their side, they expose the darkness hidden in the depths of Bradley’s old neighborhood.

The entire Mary O'Reilly paranormal mystery series is well worth listening to. Figuring out the villain and their twisted motivations is delicious, while the heroes and heroines are all people you would want to know. In today's day and age, it is so refreshing to hear stories without a lot of gratuitous sex, vulgarity, and unnecessary violence that are STILL supremely entertaining.
Cannot tell you my favorite scene without serious spoilers, but it is toward the climax of the story and I imagine it will be MOST PEOPLE'S favorite "Y...E...S..!!!" Moment.
The moving parts are always when apologies are made and forgiveness extended, because all of the main characters are people you would LOVE TO KNOW.
I am only reviewing this one book, but so far the entire series has been terrific. Much praises to Ms. Reid's storytelling abilities.
Surprisingly dark and Sexy.
I like Mike the best because of his humor and it was a good counterpoint to the darkness of this novel.
The scene with Gary talking to the refrigerator (do not want to spoil this).
The realization about the fire chiefs children.
I think that this is the darkest of this series. I found it to be much more interesting than her other novels and the character development is progressing nicely. There were some interesting twists in this one that she did not have in her other books and a maturity that was lacking in the other books. I really liked this one and I am willing to listen to the next book. Hope it is as good!
