Publisher's Summary

In a new series from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh, former prosecutor Morgan Dane faces the most personal - and deadly - case of her lifetime.

After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her hometown. Now, surrounded by family, she's finally found peace and a promising career opportunity - until her babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.

Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years and can't believe he's guilty, despite the damning evidence stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.

    "Really like this new series... RECOMMENDED!"

    I've enjoyed almost everything I've read by Melinda Leigh and this one does not disappoint.
    This is the first book in a new series. The protagonist is Morgan Dana. She's a former big city prosecutor getting ready to go to work for a small town prosecutor until her neighbor is arrested for killing his ex girlfriend. Now she must tell her new boss that she doesn't want the job after all because she is going to be working for the other side. The events that follow are full of suspense and although the clues could point to maybe three different suspects it's the one they don't point to who committed the crime.
    There are a few overtones of romance between Morgan and her investigator but it only fleshed out the story and did not overshadow the main plot.
    Chris Dukehart does an excellent job narrating. She actually performs male voices very well.
    This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Nice start to a new suspense series!"

    Of the 8 Melinda Leigh books I have listened to her Rogue Winter novellas are my favorites, but the Morgan Dane series has great promise. Dane is a prosecutor who comes from a line of cops. She is also a mother of three young children who recently lost her husband to violence as she had lost her father earlier. Her maternal grandfather, a retired cop, is helping her with her children. When a teen boy she knows is charged with murdering his girlfriend, Morgan finds herself defending rather than prosecuting for the first time.

    Say You're Sorry is an excellent start to an interesting new series. I am not a fan of narrator Chris Dukehart. She does an okay job with this novel. Kate Rudd has narrated some other Melinda Leigh books and in my opinion she would be a better fit with this series.

    "Fast paced and compelling"

    The plot and action were exciting. A terrible murder occurs (starts the whole book) and the wrong kid is accused. Morgan gives up a good job to defend the kid. There's a love interest. And some good subplots. The only thing I didn't like is some of the romantic stuff sounded a bit like dimestore romance --ugh!

    "I wanted to Like it..."

    The plot is one I would really enjoy; however, the writing needs improvement. The narrator did not improve the story, and for me Dukehart made it worse. She has been moved to my avoid list. She has a bad habit of raising her voice after sentences, almost as if there is an ! at the end of each. She doesn't do this when talking for all of the characters so she has the ability to read more naturally and really should. The character interaction did not ring true. The writing is choppy and the timeline is too fast in my opinion. I stuck with it hoping it would get better but it never did. If I didn't get to listen to is via my amazon Kendal membership for 1.99 I would have returned it.

    "Only OK for me. Possible SPOILERS.."


    I have to admit I did have to skim through all the jail stuff with Nick. I just couldn’t read about his fear and on-coming depression over everything that was being done to him when he was innocent, and he was only 20 years old. And I was thinking if the author kills off Nick while he’s in jail I’ll never read anything by her again. I’ve read/listened 10 or 12 of Melinda Leigh’s books but I was a little concerned when I got to Nick’s arrest. I was totally shocked at who paid to have Nick stabbed while he was in jail, too.

    It did turn out fine for Nick BUT I can’t say I was crazy about the two pedophiles in this story. The murdered girl was 18 and had been molested by the bad guy since she was 12. And the other girl was 15 or 16 and was being molested by her mother’s boyfriend, until she ran away. It might have had a little too much pedophilia for me.

    I was surprised at who the killer was, but that’s the way I like my mysteries.

    As always, there was no sex in this book but the F-bomb was used 17 times.

    I really like the players: Lance, Morgan, Sharp, Nick, and Bud. Stella and Brody, from other books, were in this but only for a second, which I was bummed about.

    As to the narrator: Another reviewer said Kate Rudd would have been a better choice for this book and I couldn’t agree more. Cris Dukehart is simply a bad narrator; I don’t care what anyone says. Her men’s voices are some of the worst. She needs a lot more practice.

    "They're out there preying !!!"

    Got to admit that Melinda is one of the best thriller writers I've indulged in. Always pacy with good dialogue the stories are exciting with red herrings and twists all through the book and very little if any side padding. Most enjoyable and highly recommended
