Publisher's Summary

When a shocking scandal exposes Southern secrets...

As the blazing heat of summer gives way to sultry September, a shroud of suspicion settles over Noble's Crossing, a sleepy Alabama town. Nothing is as it seems - and never will be again. Lane Noble Graham stands accused of murdering her ex-husband. The one man who can help, Johnny Mack Cahill, vowed never to return to the town that scorned him - or the woman whose love he knew he didn't deserve. 

...no one is safe from cold-blooded murder.

From the rusted-out trailers on the wrong side of the river to the stately pillared mansions along Magnolia Avenue, everybody has something to hide - but one secret could make Lane and Johnny Mack the next targets of a twisted killer who's struck once and is bent on striking again....

Story Great but Too Much Sex!

I love Beverly Barton’s plots but there are too many graphic sex scenes. They seem out of place in these books. I just fast forward lol.

The title should have warned me.

Personally, I do not need pornographic narrative in the books I enjoy reading or listening to. I will never get the connection aw to why sexually graphic context was deemed needed when trying to enjoy a good story. To me sexual matters are beautiful but personal, intimacies between two, not the world. Please, just tells an interesting and intriguing story.

storyline was good

The story was good, but the writing was a little juvenile for me. I would have preferred a more modern tone.

After Dark

This was a great book! The characters were so well developed right at first, so you knew who needed protecting and defending. I recommend this book to all readers!

Classic Beverly Barton

Excellent narration. This story is exactly why Beverly is one of my go to authors. The story takes off quickly. The characters have depth. Beverly has a unique way of creating people you love to love, along with people you love to hate. The best part is that the villains always get what's coming to them.
