As Laurel Ridge embraces a stranger hungry for answers, a sinister truth is awakened.
A hard-hitting reporter, Kate Beaumont unearths the deepest lies and brings harsh truths to light. But the story that lures her to the gentle town of Laurel Ridge, Pennsylvania, is closer to her heart than anyone knows. The details of her half brother's sudden death have never made sense. She owes him justice, yet the one man who can help her is the stubborn sheriff she can't stand.
Protecting his town is Mac Whiting's top priority. Everything else - including pacifying a beautiful crusader on a mission best left resting in peace - is secondary. But as Kate's search embeds her in his world and attracts a skilled criminal, she needs Mac's protection. Drawn together by deadly secrets, they must find a way to trust each other before a killer silences them both.

I do not retell the story in my reviews. What I do like to tell you is if this clicks all my boxes. This one does. The participants were all believable and like able. Even the ones you didn't like you loved in the story. The storyline that unfolded was reasonable for police protocol with a stretch in it that allowed interaction between the main characters. Loved the continuation of established people in #1 and #2. Made the story fuller and more complete. A must read for mystery lovers. I am gathering all of Marta Perry books for future reads. Her stories are wonderfully written. Now regarding the narrator. She is very good and doesn't try overly hard to be male voices. She gives you enough to make different in this book. Her talent is in the telling. I felt in the beginning of the book not enough variance but resolved fairly quickly as more people were introduced. Will definitely listen to again!
I loved this book ( series) Marta Perry is an EXCELLENT AUTHOR! I LOVED IT
I listened to book 1 and 2 of this series. Book 1 was great. Book 2 hard to get into, Book 3 disappointing - didn't draw me in and lacked any element of Christianity. In fact, I would say it was unchristian do too so many innuendos.
No, not worth it
She was the one good thing about getting this book
No- I'm done
