The story line was fantastic! I can generally tell who the murder is in a story long before it is revealed. I had no idea this time! I wish that the story didn't have all the sex in it, as I would have loved for others to read this, but it was not for all readers. While I love the Highlander stories, I don't like that I have to fast forward through parts of the book. The book would be fantastic without the Sex!

Daniel Sykes is one of the country's most notorious serial killers. And Jacob Deaver is tasked with writing his biography. For the fledgling true-crime author, it is the opportunity of a lifetime; a guaranteed best seller. But not everyone is sold. Camille Grisham, the former FBI agent responsible for Sykes' capture, thought that the worst chapter of her life had finally been closed, until Deaver approaches her in a coffee shop with a most unwelcome proposition.

Zook only wants to devote herself to God, but struggles with patience toward others. Her sister's challenge that she can't serve God if she isn't willing to serve His people finally opens her eyes and she soon finds herself helping a family overwhelmed by triplets. Much to her surprise, she has a knack with the babies, and her confidence in dealing with others, both young and old, grows. One person she'll never be able to find peace with, though, is Ben Rupp.

So she's chafing against her mother's wish that, to save the family farm, she marry Mervin Mosier--especially after she meets Leon Fisher. He's from Montana but is working in Molly's district, training horses at a nearby ranch. He is tall and muscular, with a confident demeanor. Molly has never met anyone like him, and he seems to feel the same about her.

Number-one best-selling author Leslie Gould delivers a new Amish romance series. When Amish farmer Pete Treger moves to Paradise Township, Pennsylvania, seeking a better life, he meets sisters Cate and Betsy Miller. Both are beautiful, but older sister Cate is known more for her sharp tongue and fiery temper than her striking appearance. Betsy, on the other hand, is sweet and flirty - and seems to have attracted most of the bachelors in Lancaster County! However, the sisters' wealthy father has made one hard and fast rule: Elder sister must marry first, before the younger can even start courting.

Camille Grisham was once a decorated field agent with the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. Her job was to solve the country's most complex and violent crimes, often with little more than a textbook profile of the perpetrator to go on. No one did it better. But after her partner's death at the hands of a sadistic mass murderer, she has become a broken shell of her former self.
