After suffering a very public humiliation, Kenadie Marshall realizes that love shouldn't be left only to personal judgement.

I love the author's ability to tell a great story! Unfortunately, I hate the use of the "F" word. it's not thrown in just to be there like some authors do, but I'm still not comfortable with it. if I didn't know that the story would grab me I would probably have quit reading it at the first use of the word. still a great read! audible made it even more amazing!

Rock climbers can't afford to make careless mistakes. But Detective Inspector Nick Dixon's former climbing partner, Jake Fayter, died doing just that. Or so it seems. Dixon suspects foul play, but his only leads are unreliable accounts of something odd happening in Cheddar Gorge seconds before Jake fell.

Amos Decker's life changed forever - twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good and left him with an improbable side effect - he can never forget anything.
