No one in Twin Oaks knows about the risky deal Kaitlin Wells cut with the Feds for her release. But everyone remembers her scandalous arrest for stealing money from the Mercury Bank. Now, three years later, Kat has come home to catch the real thieves and prove her innocence. Trouble is, some powerful folks don't want her digging up the past...or getting friendly with new sheriff Justin Radner. But some laws can't be ignored, like white-hot attraction. And soon, determined Kat and her handsome, daring lawman are risking love and life to expose the lies that will bring down a murderer...before the killer strikes again.

The two main characters are not developed enough to allow the reader to believe and care for them. They immediately fall in love in very unlikely circumstances. There are clues to who the villain is in the story but in the end it turns out to be someone else--with no clues to why that person is the culprit. Overall I never felt involved in the story.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Nice flow to this mystery. Good character development, see Sandra Brown's Slow Heat in Heaven or Where's There's Smoke if you liked this story. They are classics
I liked how the characters evolved into the plot. The dogs gabbed your heart.
This author is a true lady and chose not to use co_k , instead used the correct anatomical name for that body part. It may have set too tame a mood for another reviewer, but this was more a mystery than a bodice ripper. Reader did bring lots of the characters to life, unfortunately she did not have much of a male voice and our hero really required it to bring out the masculinity the author described.
Angela Dawe, Karen White, or Jonathan Davis any of which could have made this classic writers' work as good as the author intended. This was written in 2006 and this reader had almost no deeper male voice inflection in their scenes. Her female voices/characters were good, but the key players were men, hence the poor rating. She sounds so much like Cassandra Campbell or Caroline Winbourne/aka Coleen Marlo both of which I do not buy.
yes as I am a long time fan of the author who I had the privilege to meet at an authors signing. Get her Tempting Fate, an all time fave of mine.
As always, a poor reader can kill an author's good book. Look what Dreamscape did on classic Linda Howards reads.
I kept hoping I would get to end of this. While it had a good premise, I found the characters boring, but you have to finish something you've paid for unless it's horrible. So it didn't quite reach that, but I was so tempted to quit. The narration was not much help. It was also boring, and the worst thing was, the hero sounded just like the heroine. If they were talking to each other, I lost track of who was saying what. She needs to work on her male voices.
My husband and I both enjoyed this audiobook. This is my first book by this author and I would buy another book by this author if I could find one.
