Publisher's Summary

Lucy Sadler Caldwell is a successful true-crime writer. But the one story she's never been able to come to terms with is the murder of her own mother - until now. She's returned to Dobbs Hollow, Texas, the hometown she fled 17 years ago, to finally expose the real killer. 

After a bullet took out his knee in Houston, Detective Ethan Donovan found himself without a lot of options, which is how he ended up as chief of police in Dobbs Hollow. Lucy sure isn't asking for his help - she's not big on trust - but he can't help feeling a strong desire to come to her aid. And though Lucy is armed to the teeth, she will need all the help she can get. 

When she starts digging into the past, she unearths a psychotic killer who will stop at nothing to silence her forever.

Heat Rating... 6/10
Clean or Fade to Black - 1 or 2
Normal to Descriptive 3-5
Detailed Descriptive Sex - 6-7
Um, Wow, Beyond Descriptive Sex - 8 or above

Was there so much sex or unrealistic sex that you rolled your eyes and/or skipped forward? No

The back story... The h comes back to her home town to investigate the murder of her mother from years earlier. She meets the Police Chief and he decides to help which creates problems with the Sheriff, Mayor and others who hated her mother.

The Romance... Quick slow burn

The drama explosion... The H makes a TSTL decision instead of accepting help.

Did it feel Real, OK or contrived? Contrived
Was it OTT? Yes
Separation involved? Slight
Was it resolved properly or rushed? Just too OTT!

Final Notes... I really did like this story but the horrible decision made by the h, followed by the Austin Powers bad guy hour long narration of how amazing he is was a bit too much. I will read the next book in the series and hopefully it won't have such an unbelievable ending.

I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for more!

There absolutely needs to be more from this author! Ms. Curtis scores very high in my opinion! I truly hope this is the first in a 25 book series!!!

Ms. Masters' narration simply added dimensions not achievable by many people! This combination of Author and Narrator should be enshrined!!!

Pretty good story!

Although I found this story to drag a little bit here and there, and there was a certain amount of pretty sexist sort of behavior (probably due more to the romance side of the story), it was a pretty solid story and well-narrated. Fair suspense here and a well-structured whodunnit. Four plus stars.

Best I've listened to in a while!

Great story telling! I can't think of anything I would have changed if I could change something, and that is saying a lot for me. Great characters and plot, and I loved the lines from the characters' books at the beginning of each chapter. Great job by the narrator as well. Sadly, I don't find any more by this author on here. Highly recommended.

Gripping who done it!

Loved this story. Loved the narrator even more so. I'll be looking for more from this author and narrator in the future. I miss it already. May just listen again, this time for hidden clues. Overall, awesome!

Engaging but...

This book has a great story, it keeps your interest and wanting more.
That being said, I had an issue with the narration. I had a difficult time differentiating which character was speaking. It seemed there were 2 voices for all of the men and 2 voices for the women. I had to rewind several times for clarification.
The other issue was Ms. Masters yelling the dialog. Every other character was yelling. I realize that the plot had lots of upset people but the strain in her voice made them seem to be shouting. I was still able to listen but it did wear on me after a while.
Believable characters. Keeps you guessing.
