Publisher's Summary

A shallow grave exposes deadly secrets as bestselling author Loreth Anne White brings her thrilling series of romantic suspense to its shocking conclusion...

Disgraced ex-cop Angie Pallorino is determined to make a new start for herself as a private investigator. But first, she and her lover, newly promoted homicide detective James Maddocks, attempt a quiet getaway to rekindle a romance struggling in the shadows of their careers. The peace doesn’t last long when human skeletal remains are found in a nearby mossy grove.

This decades-old mystery is just what Angie needs to establish her new career—even as it thrusts her and Maddocks back into the media spotlight, once again endangering their tenuous relationship.

Then, when Angie’s inquiry into the old crime intersects with a cold case from her own policing past—one that a detective on Maddocks’s new team is working - the investigation takes a startling twist. It puts more than Angie’s last shot at redemption and a future with Maddocks at risk. The mystery of the girl in the moss could kill her.

Her issues have issues!!

Well, this was certainly a real edge of your seat kind of book. I've never been a huge fan of Loreth Ann White but her Angie Pallorino series should not be missed. There are three books so far in this series and I don't really think they have to be listened to in order but I do think it helps since they are referenced.
This book brings back some bad memories for Angie who is struggling to earn a living and move on with her life. She approached by a retired judge and offered a job as a PI to find out what happened to her dead granddaughter. She wants to know if it really was an accident. But Angie doesn't yet have her own PI license. She first had to finagle a job out of someone she knows who doesn't want to hire her.
This book takes you places you'd never thought you would go! From where it started to the ending this story does so many 180* turns it will keep you going in circles. The conclusion completely blew me away.
Julie McKay does an excellent job narrating however a little slow and I had to listen at an accelerated speed.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

3rd

totally awesome 3rd installment in this series. I get the impression we won't see another, ....but then I feel Hogerson has more to tell us. perhaps a 4th will focus on his story? The ending was masterful and tied up almost all the loose ends throughout the series.

I thought the book ended - NOT -another twist

I really enjoy this author. No way you can guess who did it or what is going to happen next. This book had me holding my breath a couple of times and becoming tearful others. I am going to find her next book right now.

Good Murder Mystery

This is a good murder mystery. It has an unpredictable plot with a climatic ending. The narrator seems to struggle with male voices but otherwise does a good job. I gave it three stars, because to me, the author tried to squeeze in too many side plots and commentaries about life and society and this made the book drag horribly. It was truly a struggle to get to the end and I couldn't listen to it for long periods of time. By the end, I just wanted it to end. It does wind up the trilogy nicely and tries to be profound about relationships, life, motivation, carrying on despite trials and grief. I just found it dry and tedious, but again that's my impression. I very much liked several characters and the murder plot itself was well done. It's a solid three stars to me, good but not exceptional.
