Publisher's Summary

Some games weren't meant to be played.

The lights are bright in New York City, but after losing her husband three years ago, all Evie Diaz can see is her mission to keep life rock-steady for her young daughter. This includes holding on to their little Queens apartment, the beloved nanny, and her night manager position at a luxury Manhattan hotel.

It isn't easy, and stroke after stroke of bad luck threatens to undo it all. Her one reprieve from reality is liaising with a high-stakes poker game held at the hotel, where she hobnobs with movie stars and millionaires and can, for just a few minutes, escape.

It doesn't hurt that player Kieran Carr - a handsome, confident art dealer - seems to like flirting with Evie as much as he likes playing poker. But that all ends when trouble erupts at the game, evidence points to Evie as the culprit, and the betrayed host goes after her with a vengeance.

Warned by Carr just in time, Evie runs, aided by the quietly protective hotel driver who secretly also harbors feelings for her. With the host on their heels threatening everyone Evie loves, they scramble to unravel the plot and clear Evie's name before she pays the ultimate price for a game she never intended to play.

This is the first book in The Criminal Collection - a series of stand-alone suspense novels. Thrilling, clean suspense laced with romance and faith.

Great suspense

I purchased the 3 books in this series. I would listen to it when driving and then also have the book to read at home. I am so excited to find a new suspense writer. LOVE the book.

Enthralling

An enthralling suspense novel. First book I’ve read by other and it was simply fantastic. Though I’ve read a fair share of suspense novels this is the first time my emotions were totally engaged. Fast paced, exciting and beautiful. Well done D.L.!

Great Story with a happy ending!

I really enjoyed the story. My only complaint is that the heroine of the story was quite a bit naive in the beginning.
