Publisher's Summary

Detective Royce Fleming has dealt with the worst of the worst in his small Utah town. But even after years of dealing with criminals, he's shaken when a battered young woman enters his office. 

The victim of ruthless domestic abuse, Ellerie Pearson finally has the courage to share her painful secret with the kind officer. For Royce, this information is just another piece in the puzzle he's working to solve - because unbeknownst to Ellerie, her husband's body has just been found. And she's the prime suspect in his murder. 

As he delves into the mystery surrounding Darien Pearson's death, Royce is inundated with suspects. Darien's calculated cruelty left him with no shortage of enemies, and Ellerie's involvement seems less likely by the day. But when Royce's own past makes an unwelcome return, his duty may cost him everything.

Love Clair Poulson books

Interesting and hard to figure out as a mystery should be. Love his books clean but not simple.

It’s ok.

It wasn’t what I expected, more romance and anguishing over feelings than mystery. The mystery side of it was interesting, the romance was slow then ended abruptly, the narrators “voices” were off, the religious aspect added a note of realism but would be hard to read if not familiar with the LDS religion. Over all it’s an ok mystery, it at least kept my attention to the end.

religious

I don't like when a story is religious and doesn't advertise as such. Otherwise, the story was fairly lacking in excitement and dragged on. The narrator does a lot of breathing, so that was distracting too.
