Johnny Harris is home again, his too-tight jeans and damn-your-eyes belligerence honed to perfection by a ten-year stretch in federal prison for murder. Now he’s out on parole and ready for the job Rachel Grant has promised him to help him begin a new life. Unlike the rest of the town, Rachel has always believed in her former student’s innocence. But one thing has changed.
The sullenly handsome boy she remembers is still sullen, still handsome - but no longer a boy. And now the small Kentucky town is alive with gossip and whispers of a scandal, as friendship turns to passion and Rachel abandons a lifetime of propriety in the ex-con’s arms. Then the killer strikes again. All evidence points to Johnny Harris, but Rachel knows he is innocent. And she knows she is next - as a shattering truth is uncovered and dark passions explode in the relentless summer heat.

Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
if you are a classic Robards reader, you can not miss this one. I have waited 15 yrs for this one and get a bonus as Anna Fields AKA Kate Fleming reads this one. Oh what a find.
this is pure core romance
this is read by the late great AKA, Anna Fields, who read the best Susan Elizabeth Phillips books ie: It had to be You.
I have purchased so many books by the late great ms Fields, what a waste she has passed. Enjoy this classic
Yes, without hesitation! I loved this book when it just came out in print. I was a little reluctant to buy the audio because I was afraid it would disappoint. It did not! Kate Fleming is a great reader and made the characters come to live.
Not one specific moment. More the theme, which is of faith and total trust. Rachel's belief in Johnny's innocence is touching.
No, I have not but plant to looks for other books where she is the reader.
When I first read it, yes. Some tears were shed. Although poignant, I think the way Ms. Fleming read the book had an even keel tone.
Love this book. Well worth the credit!!!
